“I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do nothing bitch. A DNB. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else. That’s why I think it’s hilarious if my body looks masculine or something like that. Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than fucking millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as fuck because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose, because I’m not a do nothing bitch. It’s not very eloquently said but it’s to the point and maybe that’s just what I am. I’m not that eloquent but I’m to the point.” - Professional MMA fighter, Ronda Rousey.
I think this power spiel is being mistaken for body-pos image language.
It isn’t. It’s damn shamey, all the way around.
I have a tiny sense of the frustration that professional female athletes experience when being confronted by every busybody asshole about how their body looks. Everyone knows the confrontation is flat-out sexist, really fucking unfair, and it's unnecessary for any of them to stand trial and defend or give reason for why their body is the way it is. No woman in sports/athletics should have to answer to anyone about how their body looks.
...but if/when you need to, you can say and do better when standing up to defend your shit and not bring down every other woman who's not doing what you're doing or look how you look. If they're not doing what you're doing or have your body, that's none of your fucking concern and it's arrogant and catty to assume that if they're not doing what you're doing, they're "do nothing" but "fucking millionaires" or whatever (what does this even mean...)
Just like you probably don't like people up in your body business, Rousey, don't be up in others'.
