    With all of the foul mouthing that takes place on these boards, it's interesting that people have such a problem with this word. I don't feel strongly either way really, if you want to use it fine, if not fine.

    Mitrione is being criticized for his exorbitant lack of couth not because of his belief that Fallon Fox is still a man genetically. Matt comes off as a bigot with that exchange whereas Bisping is using another word for being slow in an ongoing exchange of words with someone who is clearly not mentally challenged.

    The logic has already been explained. Mitrione is no martyr, he is a goof explained his opinion in a controversial, low-brow manner for shock value. Matt does not have a silver-tongue and should remember this incident next time he attempts to promote his brand.

    That said, I think that transgender people should only fight other transgenders. They can't fight other men due to the hormones, yet still retain the skeletal and muscular advantage if they surpassed puberty before hormone treatments giving them a considerable advantage. Skill would come into play at the end of the day once Fallon Fox fights better opponents than the two D class fighters she beat. Her latest fight on 4/20 was postponed because of the media scrutiny. Fox claimed in her video interview with Cyd Zeigler to be within the rules of organizations like the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for postoperative transsexuals and wishes to continue fighting in MMA. The debate on this issue has just begun but it needn't start with childish schoolyard behaviour, especially by someone who should remain a professional in front of the media while fighting in the upper echelons of a sport.

    I think the reason the outrage over bisping's total lack of class here has to do with the fact that he, in fact, has no class whatsoever. Its like it being breaking news every time a diaz whines, or something.

    It was an ancient roman term used for the "common people". The scandal I linked you to before was a case where a Government minister was supposed to have called two Police Officers "plebs" after they stopped him from leaving work on Downing Street via a particular exit because he was with a bike.

    The uproar that followed was mostly due to the deep class conflict that exists in the UK, and I wouldn't say that to the general public the word "pleb" is offensive in the slightest, it's used as a slang term is someone does something foolish, in a lightly hearted way.

    Bisping has called his opponents worse insults than retard before so I think it is about par for the course with Bisping.
