It was women... fighting. Like the lads do! (And not at all like how strumpets "wrestle," in matching bra-and-knicker sets, in that video he hides from Mum by writing, on the VHS box, "Cagney & Lacey, season 4.")
It may help you to understand his point of view, as you read further, if you can envision the author, so here:
Because I really don't want to get this guy any additional reads, I'll just repost entirely, since it's SHORT, SMALL, and STUPID.
Watching Gemma Gibbons gaining Britain’s first judo medal in 12 years, I found myself wondering: is women fighting each other violently a perfectly wholesome spectator sport? This wasn't a bit of pretend wrestling. Gemma and her American opponent, Kayla Harrison, were properly grappling with each other, throwing each other with full force onto the mat. They both showed pure, naked, fierce, animalistic aggression of a sort that one doesn't naturally associate with women – or girls for that matter. Quite honestly my initial reaction was one of shock. I felt rather as I would if I'd bumped into two drunken women bashing ten bells out of each other outside a Yates Wine Lodge on a Friday night – a bit unsettled. The photographs of the judo women will be all over the papers tomorrow, because they're dramatic and sensational.
1. Merely acknowledging your sexism hardly makes it acceptable.With those judo contestants – and I realise this will probably sound appallingly sexist – I couldn't help wondering about their soft limbs battered black and blue with bruises. Would it bother me to see one of my own daughters savagely attacking another woman on a judo mat for people's entertainment? I'm really not sure. Possibly. On the other hand I might be proud of her skill. I know full well that, as a bloke, it's none of my business, but it's what I thought and felt. After a few minutes I'd got used to it. But, then, you can get used to anything, can't you?
2. Your appalled horror at the prospect of women as strong, aggressive, even violent competitors is pure sexism. Your poor daughters!! I imagine they're penned up with a governess, wearing Victorian gowns, tatting lace and fainting regularly.
3. You're a total boob if you think Olympic-level judo (or hell, even whitebelt judo) has anything in common with a drunken brawl. And you're living under a rock if you didn't know that "pure, naked, fierce, animalistic aggression" is very much associated with women. And girls, for that matter. (How exactly did you reproduce, Mr. Brown? How can anyone with daughters doubt that women have the same or greater potential for aggressive fighting that men have?)
Fighting is womanly.
Attacking is womanly.
Bruises are womanly.
Savage glee after victory is womanly.
And I tell you-- Gemma's and Kayla's limbs are anything but soft. Unlike your own lily-white delicate limbs, you lily-livered sexist piece of crap.
Andy might secretly visit professional dominatrixes to fulfill his itch for discipline-- or I'd fantasize about Ronda Rousey kicking his ass with her "soft limbs." He'd like it so that spoils my fun.
