According to militant feminist, Lena Dunham, men don’t like Ronda Rousey. No, seriously. She has an actual theory on why “men” don’t like Ronda Rousey. Apparently Lena missed the whole Ronda being invited to the Marine Corps Ball…
No, Tank Abbott doesn’t count.
To which “men” she’s speaking is open for debate, but here’s what she thinks…
The fact is, Ronda Rousey could punch you in the face any time she wanted, and she has completely created her own life and she’s having an incredible career that most of us could only dream of and she doesn’t give a s**t what you think. And that point of view is really, really threatening to certain people, especially when it comes in the form of a woman, because to a man, a woman not caring what you think means that all your power is gone. You can’t control her anymore.
She has a similar theory about why “men” don’t like Serena Williams. Now, I don’t watch tennis just because, well, it’s tennis. I mean…really, tennis? But I know guys who do and none of them hate Serena Williams. They actually acknowledge her being one of the most dominant players ever. Which I guess means something if you watch tennis.
But Ronda Rousey and the UFC? Her theory is nonsensical. Here’s why…
1. Ronda Rousey is the biggest draw in the UFC today. With both men and women. So the idea that “men don’t like her” is simply false. Demonstrably false.
2. The “body shamers” that Ronda Rousey talks about are mostly women. Mostly angry, fat, feminist women.
3. Not “giving a s**t what people think” is actually one of the things a lot of guys specificly like about her.
4. Let’s be honest. This is really just because Ronda Rousey is prettier than Lena Dunham. Men like her, and she’s prettier than Lena Dunham.
