Sport Science S02E11: World’s Toughest Woman (June/21/2009)

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could break your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."

but women can’t be superheroes

Hey it’s Gina Carano.

my second favorite Gina.

Does it make me look like a man too? my cauli looks uglier than that. Oops!

the beauty of the Boxer of Quirinal is that it captures certain aspects of not only a fighter but quite possibly a specific fighter. It’s funny though to ascribe “masculinity” to it, though, since at the time of its crafting concepts of masculinity were radically different than they are now. And now ideas of “fighters”, particularly fighters and wrestlers in a competitive sense, is different than it was then. Now fighters are not necessarily just men and not all men are necessarily fighters. 
So… you might say that cauliflower ear is something that is an easy indicator of a person that’s seen their fair share of scraps, someone not afraid of getting hit. This has been true as long as humans have been fist fighting. But saying cauliflower makes a man (or anyone) “look like a man” is not tired shit so much as eternally worthless.
