Call me old-fashioned and sexist, but I won't watch women's boxing. It bothers me.

I would'n't mess with her.

Women's boxing never got off the ground very much except for when Laila Ali (Muhammed Ali's daughter) won the championship. Some viewed it as too masculine even though other forms of female martial arts have thrived. For example Jackie Tonawanda was unpopular as she was viewed as unfeminine. I used to see her occasionally and know for a fact that she was a pleasant person who was well mannered.

As a former coach of women's sports, it used to bother me that boxing girls never got the respect they deserved. But such is life.

Women's boxing will be in the 2012 Olympics...and I still won't watch it.

Lava, you never struck me as being a sexist or a homophobe. But I won't bug you, when it comes to your personal feelings.

I'm all in favor of females participating in sports because of the health benefits and life skills they teach. I just draw a personal line at females participating in one of my favorite sports--boxing. It strikes me as unfeminine, much the same as men participating in synchronized swimming would strike me as unmasculine.

We all have our likes and dislikes.
