THE RINGO LETTERS – #5 – To the Critics of the Female Wrestling Channel
Never miss a Ringo Letter or a Female Wrestling Channel Update!
The Ringo Letters are the sole view of Johnny Ringo, the owner of the Female Wrestling Channel, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the females that work for this company currently or in the recent past. The Ringo Letters are to serve as a vehicle for Johnny’s thoughts at a given time on FWC related subjects and non FWC related subjects.
The convention miscalled modesty has no standard, and cannot have one, because it is opposed to nature and reason, and is therefore an artificiality and subject to anybody’s whim. – Mark Twain
We do not feature nudity.
There has been no kissing on camera at the time of this writing.
There have been zero SEX scenes in all of the content we have produced up to this point.
We have a cast of wonderful girls who are awesome people in real life and on camera.
We feature real and competitive wrestling action where the ladies go at it with EVERYTHING they have.
“What we do” is extremely challenging.
The ladies dress sexy.
Just like the girls you see on the WWE, or the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, or even models you see around the world who pose in little bikinis for a countless number of magazines or photographers on a daily basis.
Afterall, 99 percent of our customers tend to be men.
We understand that sexy sells and we embrace it.
We have heard a few times that we do is akin to “Soft Core Porn”.
Description of what “Soft Core Porn” is on Wikipedia
Softcore pornography is pornographic or erotic film or photograph that is less sexually explicit than hardcore pornography. Softcore pornography is intended to arouse men and women and typically contains nude and semi-nude performers engaging in casual social nudity.
Softcore pornography also typically contains depictions of sexual activity, such as sexual intercourse or masturbation. The sexual activity is typically simulated. Softcore pornography typically does not contain explicit depictions of vaginal or anal penetration, cunnilingus, fellatio and ejaculation.
As you can see:
- soft core porn involves nudity
- it also often involves sexual activity
- it can involve a man and woman, a woman and a woman, or a man and a man.
Nothing on this website even REMOTELY resembles Soft Core Porn!
I have also heard a claim repeated a few times that the ladies who choose to do this have no self respect.
It seems this is “yet another” argument that needs disassembled.
Definitions of Self Respect:
- A proper respect for one’s self as a human being
- A personal regard for one’s own standing or life position
The majority of our ladies have PLENTY of self-respect AND they LOVE doing this.
It’s SOCIETY that normally deters the ladies away.
All people who claim to be looking out for the lady’s “best interest”.
Some people claim what we do is a fetish.
It’s a bit of a double edged sword on that subject.
We have a whole lot of fans who watch because of the actual sport of what we do.
We feature REAL and COMPETITIVE female wrestling.
We don’t know where the story will go.
This is very exciting from an entertainment standpoint.
However, you will find that thousands upon thousands of individuals all over the globe, heterosexual and gay alike, that have mild to intense fetishes involving different aspects of wrestling.
Simply create a profile on the social media website FETLIFE and search the keyword “wrestling” and you will quickly learn of what I speak.
This is to be expected as wrestling elicits different reactions in different people depending on their own inborn personality.
For some fans, when the women wrestling action is competitive, the will to win shines out.
For some fans, it’s sexual.
For some fans, they get to know the ladies as people and simply want to support them.
But, when two ladies wrestle on our mat, nobody is thinking about sex when are filming it.
Far from it!
The action is intense, very real, and the ladies are fighting with all they have out there in most cases!
Our main concern is always keeping it as safe as possible and ensuring nobody gets hurt.
Another negative claim thrown at us by a small few is that what the ladies do is “degrading” to women.
Definition of Degrading:
- To lower in dignity or estimation; bring into contempt
- To lower in character or quality; debase, humiliate
- To reduce (someone) to a lower rank, degree, etc.; deprive of office, rank, status, or title, especially as a punishment.
Something incredibly subjective like the term “degrading” is not a nationwide or social decision.
It is a decision formed in the eye of each individual beholder.
What one person finds “degrading” another might find the exact same experience to be wonderful and exciting.
A more persuasive argument that has attempted to be made is that the ladies future opportunities, job opportunities, or life opportunities, will be NEGATIVELY impacted by being associated with looking sexy in female wrestling photographs or videos.
Let us consider what we could call “The Ceiling” for something like this.
Torrie currently has over 100,000 fans on Facebook at the time of this writing.
Stacy has over 100,000 fans as well at the time of this writing.
These two ladies wore outfits WAY more revealing than the vast majority of our ladies at the Female Wrestling Channel have ever wore from Day 1.
Torrie even engaged in a brief lesbian angle on screen with Dawn Marie in one of the WWE’s storylines.
I remember Stacy being involved in similarly racy angles in her time at WCW and at the WWE.
Torrie Wilson has dated Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees.
He is one of the most desirable and wealthiest men in America.
Stacy Keibler has dated another famous guy you might have heard of.
His name is George Clooney.
One of the most well known and best looking actors of this past century.
Take a look at this picture below.
Is that president Obama sitting there?
Is that Stacy Keibler on the far right?
Ladies that come onto this company or into this industry have to “own it”.
For anything that is new or not understood by society, there will be those who warn against it.
They think they are protecting their loved ones.
In some cases, yes.
In other cases, they are simply denying their loved ones the opportunity to be truly unique and experience something very different that is loved by fans of all walks of life from all parts of the world!
