    I don’t believe that you are that naive or that ignorant.

    And what is your problem if scantily clad young women are no longer featured at prize fights?

    Isn’t it kinda pathetic that a bunch of old men need to see other scantily clad men pound the shit out of each other and a bunch of scantily clad young women prancing around half dressed just so their cocks can feel some slight sensation and they can pretend? What kind of sick fuck requires that mix of violence and sex just to feel...something?

    Seriously I’m not sure what is worse: that some men are convinced their only shot in life is beating the crap out of other men, with all the resultant brain damage? Or that some young women are convinced that their only shot is to prance around scantily clad in front of pathetic old men?

    Feminists espouse the belief that women should be free to pursue whatever employment they want without discrimination, yet they work directly against women being employed in any kind of employment that feminists don't want them to be employed in.

    Why is equality desirable? Do you think that the 90%+ cis het men who watch MMA want ring boys wearing hot pants?

    What makes you think they think it's their 'only shot'? Who made you the dictator of their lives and their choices?

    EDIT: Also, what's with the sudden ageism? If anything MMA audiences seem to be more tilted to younger men, but even if they were not, so what?

    I'm surprised the OP was titled "Another week in the strange death of land down under where the women glow and the men thunder".
    By the way, your northern hemisphere chauvinism is showing. You know, we don't even walk on our hands in the antipodes.

    Some feminists don't have a problem with people wanting to see, or to be, scantily clad eye candy at sporting events. Others think the job is inherently degrading and think it should be eliminated. But they generally agree that if there's going to be half naked cuties showing off a little bit of asscheek to the fans, it's very sexist to not have both males as females doing it.

    No, I don't.

    I think the cis het men would be very abusive toward guys in hot pants doing what the girls do. That alone should tell you what a Ring Girl's job really is and that it's inherently sexist, which is why a lot of feminists want to drop kick it into the dustbin of sports history.

    I'm sure the women will be just as good at being 'fight progress managers' as the men. In fact, I think the former Ring Girls will be even better than the new hires considering their prior experience doing the exact same job in less comfortable clothes.

    That's a braindead reason to want it eliminated.

    There are biological women now who get tizzed up and call themselves drag queens, as if it were not inherent part of gay drag culture that you have to be a biological male to be a drag queen. The day is coming when feminists will demand that biological women be given equal access to drag competitions. As if gay men haven't gone through enough without intersectional feminists appropriating our causes and our culture.

    Thinking the job is inherently degrading is a braindead reason to want it eliminated?

    Or thinking it should be open to men and women is braindead because some men would have conniptions if they saw a guy doing the exact same thing the girls are doing?

    Things change. Better get used to it because it's not going to stop.

    Yes. First, it isn't inherently degrading. Being paid money to look good for other people is not inherently degrading and it's madness to think it is.

    Second, even jobs that might be conceived of more reasonably as 'degrading' (such as diving through raw sewage to dislodge blockages) is still a legitimate job and there's no reason to 'eliminate' it on that basis alone.

    Or thinking it should be open to men and women is braindead because some men would have conniptions if they saw a guy doing the exact same thing the girls are doing?
    Looking good for money is open to both men and women. In certain contexts though it is gender segregated, and the market demand is uneven.

    Things change. Better get used to it because it's not going to stop.
    That's true. It might even be hoped that the current social discourse, dominated as it is by the dogmatic premises of the feminist faithful, may one day too change.
