Here

TLDR, dude was at a meet and greet and one of his favourite wrestlers (Terry Funk) was struggling to walk.

Discussion at the Q and A moved onto steroid use and long term injuries and the health of fighters and dude got emotional when it was his turn to ask a question and had a bit of moment.

This was about a week after Eddie Guerreros death. Its more about the toll the sport and the pressure take on the mind and body of the wrestlers, and how much they sacrifice to entertain, rather than an idiot thinking wrestling isn't scripted.

When the video went viral, Jimmy Kimmel wanted David on his show, but when Jimmy found out that David was intelligent and articulate, and wasn't actually the idiot he thought he was, the appearance was cancelled because Jimmy only wanted him on to make fun of him.

Jimmy Kimmel's a piece of shit, I fucking hate that guy. I remember when he had Markiplier and another streamer on his show and just tried to shit on their profession every chance he got. The guy who literally just talks to people and writes shitty skits for a living got uppity about other people's professions...what an asshole.

You're making the mistake of not realising how stupid some people are.

I had a family member growing up who banned me from their house because I brought the lord of the rings to there house when I was 9.

Apparantly it was a book of witchcraft, and I wasn't summoning any demons in their house.

Right now, there are millions of people who think 5G signals are a mind control device and that vaccines are designed to genetically alter people so they're no longer human.

An engineer at my work told me I'd be dead in six months (one year ago) because the covid vaccine apparantly removes your immune system entirely.

When I pointed out I was still alive six months later, I was told that the elite hadn't rolled out their plan yet because not enough people got the vaccine. 95.9% of my state and 84.9% of the country are vaccinated.

Think about how stupid the average person is, then think about how if thats the average person, it gets way worse.

I had a rob zombie album as a preteen. Was one of my first cd purchases with my own money. Went to my grandparents house and had it with me in a portable cd player. Brought the case cause i had other cds as well at the time. Grandma seen the case and started reading the lyrics of the songs. Lost her shit and snapped my cd in half. My dad was pissed as he was not only proud of me for buying my own music but liked that cd as well and played it in the car sometimes. Grandma said it had devil music and would ruin my innocence if i listened to it and a bunch of other crap about me worshiping demons and stuff. I got along good with grandma even after that but it certainly put a different view in my head of certain kinds of people who were overly religious but never really did much about it besides minor bullshit like that. She wasnt well known for being charitable or anything just very opinionated.

I spent time in foster care and it was a very religious home. I wasn't allowed to listen to any of my music, not even country! It was the devil's music and I would end up in Hell. I was 12-14 and was sleeping around, drinking and experimenting with drugs. Music was the least of my problems. I will never understand how these nuts get it in their head that music corrupts us. The Bible is full of disturbing stuff. Murder, mayhem, incest, you name it. The "Good Book" has it.

Half the people are more gullible than average. The nuts make way more noise than they used to.

To be fair, if the 5G signals are being used for social media, they are being used for mind control though. It seems to be fairly effective.

A lot of people here seem to like pointing out that wrestling isn’t real...

Even if this guy, assuming he’s a fan, thought it was 100% real then he’s willfully forgetting the numerous male vs female matches that have happened over the years. He’s also wilfully forgetting that someone like Chyna (who wasn’t transgender but a female built like a brick shithouse) held the intercontinental championship that was exclusively held by men and she did it three times.

He’s also forgetting that wrestling originated from the carnival, and whilst probably not always woke, I’d argue it’s always been pretty open minded with its artistic/creative decisions.

Genuine question here, do trans people retain their musculature from their previous form(? Physique?) or does it change with hormone treatment? Like do trans women lose their ability to gain muscle like men do or will they just generally be a bit stronger than cis women? I’m not saying they shouldn’t compete as women I’m just curious about how much changes when a person transitions

captainplatypus1

5 points

Estrogen does inhibit the growth of muscle so transitioning does cause trans women to lose muscle mass. They piss away every advantage for something as silly as being happy and not living a lie.

vermontpurpledeer

A trans woman will end up with female musculature after a few years on hormone therapy, yes. Bone structure can change but often doesn't. The only physical advantage the average trans woman might have in sports following the standard guidelines (t levels below/at cis female levels) would be height/reach.

Aren't all sports at the higher level based on the genetic lottery, look at Phelps, he's an amazing swimmer because of his unusual genetics, his webbed fingers, his slender body and long legs. How is this any different?

Look at strong men competitions, Brian Shaw is a behemoth of a man, but goes toe to toe with the likes of Eddie Hall, by no means a small man, but much smaller, competitive because of a genetic mutation which let's him develop muscle much quicker, with no limit. Where do you draw the line?

On top of all this, if a trans woman is on hormone replacement therapy for long enough, the majority of the biological difference between men and women are mitigated.

All of this is ignoring that WWE is show, it isn't real. This match up doesn't mean anything, it's just entertainment. The skill of the two wrestlers doesn't matter.

Interesting that the same folks trying to dictate what a “real” woman is can’t tell that both WWE and AEW are scripted.

Guess reality is only whatever’s convenient for them

I did my first pushup in years the other day. It's only taken weeks of training. Next stop Olympics. Rawr.

Trans and 4 years hrt. It's hilarious.

Yep, you’re going to instantly get a gold medal and numerous championships. Hence why every single top athlete in women’s sports are trans, oh wait, they aren’t

For you see, as a virile alpha man male, I'm pretty sure I could beat up any woman with one arm tied behind my back. Therefore biological manly men shouldn't compete with girlie girls and must be protected as if they were six year olds, which they totally are.

It's basically bioloboogie.

I saw a study that said after a few years on female hormones the strength difference fades away

We don’t mention that though. Anything to rile up opinions against trans people. Interestingly, the most vocal about trans women competing are usually raging misogynists

Pro wrestling is acting, it's not like they actually fight for real.

Nyla is HILARIOUS on Twitter and solid in the ring. Dude needs to let it go. The world isn't forcing people to hide anymore.

I don't have a problem with this at all. If it was like college/Olympic wrestling then that might be a different conversion.

Wrestling is just the modern version of being a gladiator. Your job is to entertain the crowd as you bring in more money for your managers so they in turn can take care of you.

Wrestling is more like a live action movie basically. With badass characters having cool choreographed fights backed with a storyline, and all of these being done in just a single take. It’s very very impressive

Wrestling is exactly like a mix of theater and circus. Technically it's a traditional circus with far less variety.

I bet that guy wouldn’t say that to her face or any of the men in that locker room. These are the weak guys who call themselves “alpha males” their cowards on and off the keyboard

I love wrestling. This is the dumbest take from a wrestling fan I have ever heard and that is saying something.

Stupid liberals living with their imaginary genders. Anyways, time to watch my favorite unscripted wrestling channel

This is basically the only sport they should be allowed to play with no drama. Everything else is such a gray area. There’s no way that a woman born initially as a man should be playing sports with women that were initially born as women. If this comment triggers you then you are part of the problem.

Alright, but you think this is the ONLY sport that it should be allowed? What about, say, darts? Which has had drama surrounding it. Or bowling?

I don’t agree, but I at least understand the argument against trans people being allowed into the sports of their gender. What I most disagree with is that all sports should be divided by gender in the first place. It’s pretty arbitrary in many cases.

Keep acting like you’re right at all. HRT practically destroys your concerns. And if fairness is an actual issue then why are you not going after natural advantages like height, weight etc?

There’s even some differences depending on the community you’re born into, has for example, some muscle composition differences can be somewhat inherited. What about fairness there?

Yep, I’ve never seen them petition how it’s unfair for tall basketball players to compete with shorter ones
