Re: Sonya Deville And Mandy Rose Recently Pitched LGBTQ Storyline To WWE Officials
It would probably be poorly executed. Furthermore, the talent involved are among the bottom tier and wouldn't be able to make it good. They're bad at acting and they're not good in the ring, either. So, that won't set an example of top athletes showing that people can make it at what they do despite being different in a way. There's also a risk of this spiralling into something ugly down the line, so it's best they don't attempt it. Besides everything, Sonya is contradicting herself by saying that her sexuality doesn't define her, which is how it whould be, and at the same time pushing for the storyline to happen.
This sure is modern day storytelling where everyone likes to play the victim game and make it look like they've had to overcome insurmountable odds when they've only faced a small bump on the road. I get that some people are insecure and it makes them feel better for themselves if there's someone successful they can relate to. So, the young lesbian girls who are insecure about themselves would be inspired by Sonya Deville's success story. Especially those who want to become a pro wrestler.
Okay, but isn't insecurity the actual problem here? I myself am short, but I didn't need to see Chad Gable or Jack Starz or any other small guy get signed to make me believe I can become a pro wrestler myself. And I don't need an example by short and successful people to make me believe I can do well for myself. I know I can do well for myself if I'm good enough in what I do and I've been doing just that in my job.
This culture of victims and anxiety should be shunned and not supported. They say that it's normal to consider yourself a victim just because you are not 100% like the masses. And even worse, they say it's normal to be anxious about every little challenge you have ahead of yourself in life. Whether because you're gay or short or something slightly out of the ordinary. None of this makes you a victim and you don't have much to overcome. Everyone has problems and if it's not your physical or mental health, you're among the lucky ones.
