Becky Lynch comments on the LGBT community and addressing herself as “The Man”

Becky Lynch has dubbed herself “The Man,” taking over SmackDown’s Women’s division all the while putting down anyone that steps in her path, physically and verbally.

However, some have criticized Lynch for this move, including Ronda Rousey, who was supposed to face her at Survivor Series yesterday.

In an interview with Pink News, Lynch addressed the controversy.

The man isn’t about gender. It’s a state of mind. It’s about being at the top.

It’s walking into the male locker room saying, ‘Sorry lads, none of you are cutting the mustard. I’m the man now. I’m taking over the ship.’

I’m the most victorious of all Superstars on both Raw and SmackDown of 2018. I’m the man of, not just the women’s locker room, but the men’s locker room. I’m the man.

Lynch continued on, addressing how great it is to see the LGBT community get treated with respect instead of getting saddled with stereotypical gimmicks.

Doesn’t matter your gender, race, sexuality, whatever it is. We’re all equal. I think that’s what I want to get over more than anything. We’re all 100% equal, and it’s what you do with that that counts.

It’s our humanity, and our sexuality is so tied in with that. It shouldn’t ever be a thing that anyone’s scared to come out. There should be no bias. There’s no reason that there should be.

What do you think about Becky Lynch calling herself “The Man?”

    Yow for guys who “don’t care” quite a few of you sure post about it enough in this thread 🙂

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    Couldn’t care less.

  • Keith Learmonth

    I’m not gay, for starters, so well done in proving you have no clue what you’re on about.

  • MT McGee

    Yes, facts. Gender is either XX or XY. Either you dangle or you don’t. Those are facts. Feelings are not facts.

  • JKC

    LOL facts

  • MT McGee

    You absolutely did not. I know what fear is, and I’m damn sure not scared of you. I’ll stop calling gays sissies when they put a little more bass in their voice and stop going to antique shows. You absolutely are a keyboard warrior trying to pick a fight with me. I just state facts, I never rant.

  • JKC

    Aw I hit a nerve. Maybe you should look up the meaning of fear? You are the one who painted gays as sissies and I’m just letting you know there are gays out there who would take great exception to how you speak to others. If you think three inches is the deciding factor in a fight I’d love to go with you any day of the week. and LOL on calling me a keyboard warrior and then going into your rant. Hey believe what you want the reality is a different beast. We surely aren’t going to change either of our viewpoints so it’s senseless to carry on with this after this point.

  • MT McGee

    That’s not ignorance. You ever bother to look up what the two root words mean that make the word homophobia? You can try to say it means something else, but that doesn’t make it so. And what’s your point about there being gays that can kick my ass? There are straight guys that can kick your ass. I took a boxer’s best shot straight to the chest and didn’t budge. I’m not scared of some keyboard warrior hiding behind his monitor. And 6’0? That’s all you could grow to? I’ve got three inches on you, boy, and weigh as much as you do, so gtfo.

  • JKC

    More ignorance and nonsense. There are many gay guys out there who could kick your ass. I’ve never lost a fight in my life and I’m gay. I am 6’0” and 250 pounds who works out and has learned different fighting styles for fun. The stereotypes you use are old and tiring.

  • Soulshroude

    You damned right. Period.

  • MT McGee

    I don’t think you know what the word “homophobe” means. It means a fear of gays. I won’t speak for anyone else but I am not afraid of a group of homosexuals breaking into my house and redecorating. I don’t walk the streets in fear of gays being catty about my outfit.

  • MT McGee

    Agreed. And the whole “transgender” thing is a farce. Because you decide you are a man when you are a woman you are trying to force me to pretend that you? Gender is real simple: either you dangle or you don’t. How you “feel” doesn’t matter, facts do. Now, if you are a man and want to play with dolls, fine, not my thing but I won’t stop you. Want to wear a dress? I’m not going to stop you. You’ll get a weird look from me, but that’s all. What I have a problem with is men going into women’s bathrooms. If you think you are something that you aren’t, either use your bathroom at home or find a place that has a handicap or family bathroom.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    The f*ck ever, that’s the same reply that is always given to people who don’t agree with you or “serve” your cause. “Hate mongering” and/or “homophobia”, your gay *sses need to get over yourselves. You nothing special.

  • Whistling Joe

    Not the way Cesaro leaped into the arms of Sheamus.

  • Soulshroude

    Again… I couldn’t care less regarding the LGBT feelings. I’m simply sick and tired of that crap being shoved down my throat on a regular basis.

  • Literally watch any sport and after a team scores those men leap into the arms of other men.

  • Old School

    The term also came up when Becky and Charlotte were feuding…. just assumed it was a tongue in cheek dig at Ric. Never looked at it any other way nor did I care to. This is a pre-scripted show with the purpose of suspending reality for the fans. It really sucks that some one saying “I am the man.” would spark controversy of any kind

  • Keith Learmonth

    Yes. You are a homophobe.
    You claim the “agenda” is being “shoved down your throat”, which just sounds like regurgitated garbage from Fox News, (apparently you don’t mind their agenda in your throat, eh?), but you prove at the same time exactly why the representation matters, by utterly misunderstanding the LGBT community as all being twink gays and butch lesbians.

    Your lack of basic understanding of how this stuff even works is exactly why you need it “shoved down your thoat.”

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    No. I’m not a “homophobe”. Nor do I have any so called “sexual” demons. I’m really sick and tired of the LGBT being crammed down my throat (pun intended) with the P.C. agenda bullshit.

    What, just because a person doesn’t like something, it instantly has to do with some sort of “hate mongering” or “tendencies not acted upon”? Give me a f*cking break.

  • Omar

    People are being too sensitive about it. She is taking the age old wrestling term “the man” and applying to the herself through the famous Ric Flair saying “If you want to be The Man you have got to beat The Man” which she did with Charlotte Flair.

  • JKC

    Wow, you really think the whole community is that way? You need to become educated. We come in all shapes and forms. There are gay MA fighters, gay wrestlers, gay fireman, gay policeman, gay construction workers, gay sports players…..etc. Nobody guesses I’m gay in public because I don’t fit the old tired stereotypes people still believe. I’m found that those who yell the loudest against gay people are battling demons of their own with sexuality. Not sure why I’m evening wasting my breath on the subject with your delusional views but damn I hate stupidly and ignorance.

  • Whistling Joe

    Becky is secret transgender, just like Bayley and Sasha are secret lesbians, The Bar are secret gays, and Finn Balor is secret bi-sexual. What makes the Bar gay? Have you ever seen a straight man leap into the arms of another man?

  • Rinn13

    Personally, I think “The Man” nickname is stupid as hell. It degrades and devalues women wrestlers, as if they have to “be the MAN” to be somebody. And it degrades and devalues the male wrestlers, by her claiming she’s better than any of them too. Is it part of her character, and do I get that? Sure. But that doesn’t mean I have to be a fan of it.

  • Soulshroude

    Awww… she’s trying to be Roman Reigns in his place as a segregate. Isn’t that nice. By the by, the LGBT community doesn’t have any MEN in it. It only has guys who act like women, women who want to be like men and fail at it with looking stupid as hell with short cropped butch hair, and old guys who talk like they want to be the women they’ll never be. Very confusing, but so is that community.
