You wouldn’t worry so much about what other people think of you if you realized how little they actually did. Hokey Shit. People often ask me if it’s difficult to be a female in a sport like MMA. Sometimes I get frustrated being the only female fighter in my gym because male culture is magnified in a martial arts gym; the sport itself seems innately identified within the masculinity of it’s male participants. Sometimes I feel like I’m selling myself out amidst convesations of titties & bar skanks & getting wasted & getting laid & so & so’s hot ass & blah blah blah. And then I realize it’s just another day in the life of a girl. It’s no wonder that I love the sport of MMA so much; because the struggle & the hard work & the endless efforts & pain & suffering & the strength it takes to keep moving forward under the weight of inequality is a physical expression of what it feels like trying to find myself/be myself/express myself in a world built for men. And that might sound like some hokey feminist shit but that is just some straight truth. Being a fighter for me is about staring this all in the face & saying, “Bring it.”
