Have you ever stared into the eyes of someone and immediately thought “Yep, I’m being judged right now”? That rush of anxiety when you realize the person staring at you might have just lost all their respect for you? It’s not like I told her I was a meth dealer whose main office was located behind the playground of an elementary school. It’s not like I told her she could stand to lose a couple of pounds, or that I thought her friend looked like she got smacked around with the “ugly stick”. Why was this female all of a sudden this disgusted with me?
Has professional wrestling developed such a stigma that even briefly mentioning it in passing now gets you labeled, looked down upon, and condemned in the eyes of females? This had to be an isolated incident, right? There’s no way that every female has a repressed grudge against professional wrestling. I know female wrestling writers exist. I know female fans exist. But, they usually only exist within the small sample size of the online wrestling community, or can only be found at actual events.
When this particular female left my table, after I had apparently just murdered any interest she had in me, the first face I saw was the face of my friend who had the biggest smile I have ever seen.
My Friend: I can’t believe you told her you write about professional wrestling. You just came right out with that didn’t you? For your sake maybe you should just let people get to know you before you tell them about that particular passion. It’s hilariously clear that wrestling is definitely frowned upon in the female community. Thanks for the laugh though! That was priceless.
Is wrestling that frowned upon within the female community? Can enjoying professional wrestling really be that bad? In a world full of materialistic, shallow, stereotypical television, music, movies, and social media platforms, is wrestling really that big of a social no-no? Would I have been better off telling her I spend my free time going to the gym, tanning, and doing laundry?
