Trainer Trials: Amelia & Julie Glove Up And Box

I gotta admit, I was especially excited for this episode of Trainer Trials. My grandfather — shout out to Frank Joseph Parry, whut whut! — was a boxer and won the Golden Gloves for all of Pennsylvania way back in the day. So, you know, boxing is in my blood. Plus, I have a lot of untapped… More »


Women Box For The First Time Ever At The Olympics!

Women’s boxing is having its first time ever at the 2012 Olympics and I have half a mind to say “this is what feminism looks like.” Right here we have Naomi-Lee Fischer-Rasmussen of Australia, left, socking Anna Laurell of Sweden right in the kisser! (I chose this image because it’s an action shot, not because… More »


Girl Talk: I Had An Emotional Affair

Last summer, I fell in love with my boxing teacher. I never kissed him. I never spent time alone with him. Though I did have mental sex with him at least a thousand times, and was only left with goose bumps and a weakened mind.

This Exists: Female Bikini Rollerskate Boxing

Oh Brazil, you’ve really disappointed us this time. You managed to ruin two of my favorite sports—rollerskating and boxing—while being extremely sexist and degrading at the same time. In this vid, two scantily dressed women get in the ring and grind/hump each other while wearing rollerblades. Eventually, one falls down and the other one… More »

Women’s Boxing Is Now An Olympic Sport

I am a female boxer. A year ago, I was leaning against the boxing ring at my old gym in New York City, fully decked out in sparring gear and waiting nervously to hop in and kick some serious butt. To distract myself, I asked my trainer, “When do I get to compete in the… More »


Gina Carano Is The Female Face Of Mixed Martial Arts

Some girls sleep with teddy bears. Some girls like to watch mixed martial arts fighting. I would be the latter. What’s MMA? A full contact sport that’s a mix of boxing, wrestling, and martial arts. It’s bloody, it’s hardcore, and it’s one of the most popular sports in the country. You may have seen guys… More »


Going Out For Drinks Is Boring

How many times have I gone out for drinks on a date? More times than I can count. Of course, it’s partly my fault for not suggesting something more exciting.
