Full confession: “A ton of wrestling fans have some hypocritical and disgusting
attitudes towards the women. They’re trained wrestlers before anything else, and work just as
hard and deserve just as much focus as the guys do. Yet while a lot of people
parrot that and say the likes of Bayley, Banks and Becky deserve to be placed
at the top of a card, they also say awful shit like “I want Becky to crush
me with her thighs”, “Alexa’s ass is amazing” or that they
furiously masturbated to Lita & Torrie Wilson on repeat 10 years ago,
sometimes even in the same post or sentence as any relevant in-ring/storyline
So many guys either on Twitter or Reddit or wooo or elsewhere can’t
even post a GIF or talk about anything related to the women without devolving
to “I would pound Thicki Bella so hard”-esque comments.You’re wondering why it took so long for WWE to treat it’s
Women’s Division with actual dignity? A lot of it’s probably because a big
portion of their audience, always talk about how attractive they are instead of
about their contributions to the product.
PLEASE stop talking about how hot you
think Maryse /Lana /Becky /Naomi /Nikki is if women’s wrestling is something
you legitimately care about. It’s even worse in places like WrestlingForum,
where I’ve seen more than a fair share of people actually say they shouldn’t
ever wrestle and should only be used as T&A.
Their value to some fans seems to be connected to their looks.
I’ve seen plenty of threads and people devolve into bashing a woman’s appearance if she’s
not liked. Then, they’ll defend faves by placing too much value on appearance -
like how Becky’s special because she’s not a generic blonde bimbo, but if
someone mentions that Bayley’s look is less glamorous than her peers (which
isn’t a bad thing by any means), it’s almost seen as insulting. Because if
she’s not here to look sexy to a segment of the audience, you’re basically
saying she’s lesser. There’s no winning.
You can’t be too focused or prideful about your appearance or
you’re a sleazy trashbag like Eva Marie, but if you have a more muscular body
type, you’re derided as mannish, like Charlotte.
Meanwhile, if you’re involved with a coworker, they’re treated
as a prize. “Well, Zack Ryder lost his title right after Wrestlemania, but
the guy gets to fuck Emma so he’s winning, amirite!?”
People aren’t offended because you think Maryse or Alicia Fox or
whoever is pretty, it’s that in an era where the women’s division is seeking to
build credibility, reducing female wrestlers to how sexy you find them is
(And before anybody starts chirping in with “we can find
them both sexy & good wrestlers you cuck”, ffs nobody’s saying you
can’t find them attractive. Just don’t post your subconscious thoughts on a
public forum in a topic which has nothing to do with their appearances. Nobody
wants to know about them, and it just makes the people who do it look like
