Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal every year? Some would quickly grow tiresome of that, I know I would. It's of WWE nature to milk something that has shown or seemed to have shown great results, I say that because we don't know the degree of success Cesaro attainted due to The Battle Royal win and trophy, yet that is.

I cannot produce an accurate guess as of now on that specific topic, but surely having a top tier mouthpiece like Heyman or Coulter spewing godly promos emphasizing the win is enough for the audience to eat it up as something with equal significance to winning the WWEWHC title. That's an issue though, If we were to make the above an annual event, not every winner is gonna have a promo king like Coulter and Heyman at their side to hype up the win as highly meaningful, let alone a mouthpiece in general. [HIDE="hide"]

Also judging off the card who was involved and common knowledge, most who enter such a match will be green, inexperienced and have just hit the big time, this tells me that they won't be able to hand out even a passable promo. It's not like you can just get on the mic and say "I won The Battle Royal dedicated to Andre The Giant, look at my shiny trophy. I deserve a title shot". I know that's not giving the current talent enough credit, obviously they're not as bad as that, but you get my gist, hopefully. You need something more, more substance, intelligence and articulate words to fill your promos, you can make the crowd believe anything as long as your content is compelling, no matter if it's bullshit or not.

Now that I've emphasized my stance on needed mic prowess to hype up the win, I want to discuss the prospect of a much more attractive match happening in the Royal's place and still serving the same purpose. You've got MITB, which guarantees a better quality match, a rightful winner meaning whoever grabs that briefcase would have earned it through real pain, commitment and perseverance rather than some light scuffling seen in the Battle Royal and most of all, a trophy of meaning, no disrespect intended to The Great Andre but does a chance at challenging the champion at anytime you plead and more than likely winning it If you do so wisely mean more than a practical prop? Of fucking course. The star or future star who has that briefcase will have the audience glued to his every move, you'll hear "he'll cash it in tonight, it's so obvious that after the "hard-fought" contest in Swagger vs Del Rio. They'll cue Ziggler's music, NO? This is turning out to be the most unremarkable WM ever!!!" Next night on RAW "Godammit, I'm so depressed at the fact of no Ziggler cash in at Mania and another lame ass Swagger-Del Rio match which pretty much rules out a cash in because WWE don't want the moment overshadowing the entire RAW, WWE hates Ziggler…….minutes later, OMFG, they did it, they bent me over and fucked me, they actually bloody swerved me"

See, with the possibility of MITB being at WM, WWE can produce mark-out moments by declining obvious routes and building anticipation through unpredictability. The crowd were louder for Ziggler than the freaking Undertaker, you wanna know why? shock value, that single moment gave us the belief that anything can happen in the WWE. Edge cashing in on Taker and Cena and vice versa, Punk cashing in on Edge further back up my claims, the reception were huge for all three moments. Now, you say the MITB has its own PPV, well aren't the latest MITB matches filled with already established superstars and juggernauts who have an eternity's worth of accolades under their name, who wants to see a seven time champ hold the briefcase for a third time and win the title for a total of eight world title wins? No, It's shitty, underserving, predictable and with the latest title unification thus reducing the MITB matches to only one, it's going to be happening a lot more If we don't move the MITB stipulation to Mania and keep it there. The wrestlers who have a solid foundation are usually involved in ME programs when Mania comes around, that means the less established/unestablished have a chance at cementing their legacies through an MITB win and unlike their hesitation in vocal projection (mic/promo work), I have no doubt these young guns are passionate about giving us their all, their absolute 110%, doing the one thing they do best, WRESTLE!.

Hide tags (for the dojo) work like so, if you meant you couldn't work it out:

[*HIDE*="100000"]text[*/HIDE*]
without asterisks.

Yep, I had gone back to the OP (which I should have seen earlier but you know us, BRIEF SKIMMERS) to see if there was any info regarding such, lucky there was and was gonna go back for editing, but then Shepard saved the day.

Is there any reason for hiding posts, it's a practice thread isn't it?

The judges can see it despite the hide tags (the ones with mod power anyway). It just means that other people submitting don't see your work before doing their own.

Those are some mighty enticing wrestling questions this week, and a solid NBA question, and a social question that will be a struggle to get to 600 words, should be a good week

Says message is too short...

Quote:
Transgender teachers should not be allowed to teach children in schools.

First off, by children, I am referring to children in primary school. This is different from children in secondary school who are between 12 and 18, who I don’t feel can be labelled as children.

Children in primary school are between the ages of 4 and 11. They are embarking on the adventure known to all as life. Their teachers at this age have a massive impact on the young person, as a lot of important development mentally and emotionally happens at this age. It is therefore imperative that the children in question have a healthy relationship with someone who is suitable for the job. At such a young age, children are very easily distracted, which means that the odd sight of a transgender person may have severe effects on them. For many young children, a transgender teacher may be the first transgender person that they have ever met. This could cause confusion for the children, and in some cases it may even upset them. Confusion or not, it is undeniable that a transgender teacher would distract the majority of young children, mostly due to them being a minority. This does not leave anyone at fault, and can only be put down to the natural curiosity of children, but does unfortunately mean that transgender teachers are unsuitable for such an age group. The potential confusion or sadness which can be caused by a transgender teacher is absolutely unnecessary at this age. Sure, you can say that children have to learn about these things, but I’d say that a large minority of transgender people knew that they were transgender before the age of 11. There is absolutely no need to educate primary school children about this, as it can easily be done in secondary school when their minds have matured.

To back up the point that a transgender teacher can be a distraction to children in primary schools, let’s take a look at a case in a school in Texas. Laura Jane Krug is a substitute teacher in a town in Texas. Laura Jane Krug is also a transgender person. She has been suspended from teaching in her school due to complaints put forward by worried parents of pupils at that school.
Quote:
“If it does affect my child and his ability to learn or if it causes questions that I don't feel are appropriate, then undoubtedly there's an issue with having somebody transgender, transsexual or transvestite to be teaching that age group” – Father of a fifth grade student
This is one example of a parent who shares my view that, yes, a transgender teacher can cause a child to fall behind on their education and, yes, it can raise unnecessary questions that a child does not have to deal with at that age. School boards obviously take this very seriously, and so they should, as they have suspended the teacher pending investigation. Although the transgender teacher does not, by being transgender, automatically forfeit any qualities that a good teacher has, they cannot be allowed to teach in an environment in which they could hinder the ability for a child to learn efficiently. The main goal of a school is to educate a child, and if they can’t do that without fear of ANY child being put off track, they cannot hire transgender teachers. This same parent concluded that his child is “just too young to be having to ask questions about this sort of thing”.

You could also say that it would be discriminatory to fire a transgender person solely because of their gender identity, but it runs a lot deeper than that. Regardless of their gender identity, if they are causing confusion to kids and hindering learning, then they have to go.

Just because I’m against transgender teachers teaching children, it doesn’t mean that I’m against them becoming teachers. Sure, you could say that just because a teacher is transgender does not strip them of the qualities in which teachers require to be ‘good’. Some of these qualities are intelligence, compassion, responsibility and organisation. Transgender teachers who make it through their degrees and teacher training have the same chance of being ‘good’ teachers in this sense as any non-transgender person. While I do agree with this argument against transgender teachers being banned from teaching children, the fact still remains that due to the confusion and potential setback to learning that it can cause, transgender teachers should not be allowed to teach younger children, and should instead focus on becoming a teacher of older children.

To conclude, transgender teachers should not be allowed to teach younger children because it could halt pupil development and cause confusion or even sadness amongst the children.

Default Re: JIM'S GYM PRESENTS TDL DOJO #5.

I went a different route with this one, I really hope it doesn't fuck me over. Personally I think it's... very... persuasive.

Is making the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal an annual event at Wrestlemania a good move?


Is an over-the-top-rope battle royal at the grandest stage of them all a good idea? Absolutely.
But with the ultimate prize being a… statue? Uhh… I think the problem lies in that.

If we just look at it on paper, an annual multi-man battle royal at WrestleMania is in no way a bad thing; it gets a lot of talent on the card, allows for continuations and creations of storylines and/or feuds, and most importantly, if given enough time, can really let the aforementioned talent shine.

But the problem? The reward being a large prop statue. Don’t get me wrong, I love Andre the Giant, and everyone who considers them a wrestling fan should too. He was, and will be remembered as, a pioneer, not just for wrestling, but especially wrestling entertainment. Andre the Giant certainly deserves something to celebrate his legacy, but I think this is the wrong way to do it.

There is already a well-established and extremely popular battle royal that leads to WrestleMania, and we call this the Royal Rumble, and we have for over a quarter of a century. The Royal Rumble has a much better prize, much better moments, and is often considered to be the absolute most popular stipulation match in wrestling today. This thirty-or-forty-man over-the-top-rope battle royal has one of the most lucrative non-championship rewards – a main event opportunity at WrestleMania for a championship – but does a giant statue of a giant compare? Why make a worse, virtually completely unimportant version? I can’t honestly say it does, and I can’t honestly see why.

As hurtful as that may be to Andre the Giant super-fans, it’s just a horrible idea. Who would want to fight twenty-nine other men for a statue over a championship, kayfabe speaking? And who would want to fight twenty-nine other men for a statue over a championship, five years after the original, where five other guys have already won it?

Though, like I said, if we go back to the basics - an annual multi-man battle royal at WrestleMania – is a fantastic idea, realistically (not in kayfabe). Thirty men who are otherwise unable to make it to the card get to be on it. Thirty men get their shot to show their ability at WrestleMania. Thirty men can wow one of the largest multinational sporting audiences in the world. Should the prize matter?

Not to mention, uninteresting gimmick matches like this, especially battle royals not named the Royal Rumble, lose their touch after a few uses, and no fan is going to look forward to the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, wondering if his or her favourite superstar is going to win it. They’d be more likely to skip through the first, depressingly slow half, full of eliminations of jobbers left right and centre, if not just skip all of it.


In kayfabe terms, it’s kind of questionable. Who would want a memorial statue if it’s not one of a kind? Who would want to devote their time to something that isn’t a championship?
On the other hand, a non-kayfabe hand, it gets thirty men who wouldn’t have a chance to be on the grandest stage of them all, to actually be on that grand stage.

Unfortunately and realistically, the negatives outweigh the positives quite substantially with the concept of an Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

The reward –
Compared to the aforementioned Royal Rumble, the most adored annual stipulation match in the history of wrestling, the prize for winning is nothing important in both kayfabe and shoot. There’s no attached championship. There’s not even an attached championship match or opportunity. There’s no contract for a match in the future. There’s nothing but a massive plastic fucking prop statue.


The statue –
It’s a PLASTIC PROP STATUE.


And most amazingly, the length -
The match lasted thirteen minutes, twenty-five seconds. 13:25. That is disgraceful!
Everything I mentioned about thirty superstars getting a chance to shine at WrestleMania is just completely irrelevant when thirty superstars are crammed into an abysmally low thirteen minutes and twenty-five seconds. Fourteen of the participants were eliminated in the first five minutes. Count that. Fourteen. Almost half of the damn wrestlers in the match.
Apart from the inevitable victor, who is going to show off their skills? Who is going to break the proverbial glass ceiling? Who would grab that, also proverbial, brass ring?

The answer is no-one. No-one can break out when crowded by 29 other people in 30 minutes, unless they win it.


Basically, making this event annual would be a pointless waste. Waste of time, waste of talent, and even a waste of plastic.

Default Re: JIM'S GYM PRESENTS TDL DOJO #5.

Please excuse seemingly random numbers in there as footnotes, don't believe this board supports superscripts and they didn't copy over from word

Should Transgenders be allowed to be School Teachers and teach children?
Should Transgenders be allowed to teach children? What kind of question is that? If you look at the date today, you’ll see that the year is 2014. Are Transgenders supposed to be too mentally unstable to entrust with our children? Are people afraid that Transgenders will confuse the children they teach about appropriate gender roles in society? Are people afraid of Lesbians, Gays, and Transgenders teaching children because they can’t have biological children of their own? This is an absolutely baffling question to even ask in 2014, and I am going to dispel all of these notions against Transgenders in education.

It was once believed that just having gender identity issues was a mental illness, but the American Psychiatric Association removed that definition from their manual in 2012.1 The main issue for Transgenders is that despite gender identity no longer being a mental illness, there is a high prevalence of secondary psychiatric issues, indeed there’s a 41% incidence of a suicide attempts at least once in their lifetime.2 Here’s the thing though, just because there’s a higher prevalence of psychiatric problems in a populace, does not mean you can throw out that entire populace from the job field. Just like with any other applicant for the job, if they pass every standard you have set for the job, why should the possibility that they might have a mental breakdown in the classroom make them any more risky than any other applicant who might have that same breakdown? Every population segment has its statistics, and if you are considering applicants from the sane portion of those segments, shouldn’t that be enough?

There are some people who think that anyone outside the regular standards of society cannot be entrusted with the guidance of our children.3 A recent high profile case in the United Kingdom happened when a teacher was driven to suicide over the public backlash.4 The logic behind this is astounding, considering that those so called normal people they want teaching their children have the same problems with corrupting the youth that parents are afraid that Transgenders will.5 That reference goes on for 13 pages, and only covers female teachers, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. What kinds of corrupting are parents so afraid of; that kids will question their own sexuality; their own gender identity?6 For younger children, that should not be a problem, but for teens? If those questions were going to come up, they would come up anyways. A teacher can help them through those questions, perhaps with more insight then their parents could ever offer. Maybe that is what the parents are so afraid of, the inability to control the lives of their children.

Sex education is a class that every school has after a certain age, but some people say that it cannot be taught by any member of the Gay, Lesbian, Transgender community because they are not of the majority sexual orientation.7 This is a fairly common conservative right belief to things. The fear here is that they will take students who otherwise would have been heterosexual and corrupt them any which way to an unnatural sexual orientation. Some states even legally mandate that teachers should misinform students to the legality of some sexual acts involving same sex couples.8 This is what Transgenders are facing in the teaching environment after they somehow jump through all the hoops and get hired. Typically, before middle school, sex education is taught by the same teacher as the students normally are, as just another curriculum. So if Trangenders were banned from teaching sex education, they wouldn’t be allowed to teach at all in grades where children are more impressionable and parents are more terrified about kids learning sex education at all9, let alone non-traditional lifestyle options.

At the end of the day, America is facing a severe shortage of teachers. Who are we to say that a perfectly capable candidate cannot teach second grade because she used to be a he? Those Transgenders who have made it through the hell hole of a life they have had to put up with have lived a hell of a life and persevered. These are not people we should be shunning, these are people we should be welcoming with open arms. If that teacher ends up touching, saving even, a student who might be in a similar situation to a situation that the teacher survived, doesn’t that all make it worth it? Maybe a student knowing they have someone to turn to can lower those suicide rates.
