At which point I think it IS worth discussing. Not in a “how much bigger are her boobs” but in a grand sense of “what’s the correctly feminist way of viewing breast enhancement surgery?” Continue reading Boobs and Brains
I remember thinking in 2001 how great it would be to see a WWE Pay-Per-View that was just women’s matches. I fantasy booked the show, made online images as a campaign for a show I dubbed “Ladies Night.”
I also remember being told, mostly by guys, that it would never happen.
Now, almost 20 years later, it is happening. For real. Continue reading Theories Of Evolution
The greater problem, though, is that WWE is trying to sell Ellsworth having to fight Asuka as somehow empowering for women. They went so far as to seriously compare their first one on one match on SDL to the Battle of the Sexes between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Which, yes, it was a woman fighting a man who acts like a sexist pig, but on the other hand no, not at all, this is actually insulting.

“I guess you don’t care about Raw OR the Women’s Evolution.” I’ve been fuming over this line from Kurt Angle ever since the segment on Monday’s RAW where he threw it into Bayley’s face.

But I’m always prepared for the May show or shows to be lackluster, it’s that period right after Wrestlemania where you realize the WWE has no idea what they’re doing. … Continue reading Where’s My Freaking Revolution: Bad Backlash. Very Bad Backlash.
I don’t really know what to say about the show because it was so very different from the Royal Rumble. While the Rumble started my year out with such high hopes, Wrestlemania failed to capitalize on that. It isn’t even that I would say what transpired in New Orleans was bad, because on the whole it wasn’t. But almost worse than that is how, outside of two or three moments, it was forgettable.
