ronda rousey men's fitness cover

UFC superstar Ronda Rousey is the first woman on the cover of Men’s Fitness. In the grand scheme of things that isn’t a very big deal. It’s a magazine about working out and eating healthy, not religion or the global economy. There are probably more important things to worry about. But this little bit of publishing history is interesting to think about.

On the one hand, it’s not entirely unreasonable to prefer that the person on the cover of Men’s Fitness be a paragon of men’s fitness, somebody who embodies what the readers are trying to attain. And that means being a man.

On the other hand, it’s not like Ronda Rousey has nothing to teach men about being fit just because she is a woman. So it’s also not entirely unreasonable to say the person on the cover should simply be someone who has something to offer.

Not surprisingly, people on the internet (hey, that’s you!) have had the full range of reactions to the Ronda Rousey Men’s Fitness cover.

There are those who are all for it:

ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - positive 1
ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - positive 2
ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - positive 3
There are those who are not:

ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - negative 1
And, as always, there are those who just want to be misogynistic a-holes:

ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - negative 2
ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - negative 3
ronda rousey first woman cover of men's health reaction - negative 4
Personally, I don’t actually care. But if I had to pick a side of the debate, I’d choose the “should probably be a man on the cover of Men’s Fitness” camp.

What’s your take?
