My response to Cyd Zeigler


I posted this on the article, but I want Cyd to read this so I'm making a fan post:

Your condescending tone is insulting and unnecessary. Yes, I am concerned for woman fighters combating an individual that was born a man.

Yes, even though I enjoy MMA, I do have the audacity to be concerned about safety. I enjoy football too, and am also concerned for players safety. Cyd’s assertion that these two things are mutually exclusive is ridiculous.

What Cyd seems to pathetically confuse, is that the majority of us mature fight fans take no issue with Fallon’s right to exist. I wish her the best on her life’s journey and hope she achieves happiness to the absolute fullest. I’m sure Fallon is a wonderful person and she doesnt scare, intimidate, enrage, or threaten my manhood in anyway. I’m not a Neanderthal Cyd. I’m probably more educated and libertarian than you.

That doesn’t equate with my acceptance of a natural born male, going transgender, and then punching natural born female in the face. Those are two separate things. One thing I can’t stand is someone questioning the collective intelligence and humanity of this community, when he can’t even get the issue that we have right.

Don’t fucking condescend to me after admitting you know dick about the goddamned sport.
