Thread: Rousey makes 50 Women Changing the World list

  1. Default

    yawn. To rate her over Margaret Thatcher in a list of women who changed the world should tell you exactly how shallow and pointless this article is. God Im looking foreword to 5 years down the road when we dont even hear about Rousey anymore.

    Changed the world? Maybe changed a part of the sporting world, but i don't see how she has affected anything but a minute portion of the actual world.

    no where close to it.
    The point of Business Insider magazine is to sell copies of Business Insider magazine. Accuracy is an occasional side effect, but certainly not standard.

    By change the world, I think they meant:

    Is attractive, willing to take clothes off , got Dana White "excited" ... easiest way to get constant contact with her was to add female mma to the UFC despite prior to that saying the talent pool was too shallow

    It's changing the world. Considering the only thing Thatcher is doing right now is decomposing, maybe scratching at the lid of her coffin and gasping for air, I would it is fair.

    This is pretty classless to me.

    As for this topic, does the woman from Tunisia who posted topless pics of herself on Facebook to bring attention to women in Middle Eastern countries, then was kidnapped by family members and beaten make this list? How about the girl from (I can't remember where and can't look it up right now) who was shot in the head for wanting to go to school and lived? Those are world changing women, not Rousey.

    HOSS-Bork, you should spend more time brushing up on your MMA history, and less time complementing guys on how young their penises taste.

    Just asking because I am unfamilair with both those stories. What was the backlash to those stories? Did anything significant occur from them? I am not questioning their sacrifice, courage or the importance of what they trying to do, but if the chick got shot and it was just swept under the rug like events like that usually are in far less developed countries she really doesn't deserve to on this list.

    Documentary tells the story of Pakistani girl shot by Taliban - The Globe and Mail

    Malala's victory symbolizes the worldwide struggle of Muslim women - The Globe and Mail

    There was a lot of impact and not swept under the rug. Backlash (as it were) of Malala going to school was being shot in the head...the girl that bared her breasts as I have said already was kidnapped and beaten by her own family member. Also just because something was swept under the rug in N. 'Merica does not mean it isn't a world changing event. This is far more important that Rousey being part of professional fighting. There's a lot of women. This kills me to say but Danica Patrick is the first women to ever drive in NASCAR's top level but perhaps nothing there? Does that really change the world? Not so much.

    Here is part of the information about the woman called Amina who did the facebook stuff.
