Vanman's blog



Driving back from shopping today my daughter (10) spotted a Pride flag on the local fire station "Oooh look at that!"

I decided to question what she knew of it. She stumbled for a moment trying to find the words but eventually said it is for all people who are Gay, Bi, Transgender.

So I asked, what does Gay actually mean?

The answer is what makes ME proud, she said "it's where a boy likes another boy BUT I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY IT HAS TO HAVE A NAME."

I know people have fought long and hard for the right to be recognised in all walks of life and I applaud that fight. So if a 10 year old child can get it, why are there still so many idiots about.

Hopefully future generations will all come to her point of view.

There are limits.........

Or at least there should be!

Being on this site has been one of the most liberating things I have done in years so in no way am I suggesting that people should be STOPPED doing anything.

What I am suggesting is that some people exercise more restraint.

Why oh why, do people need to post 3+ blog posts in a day? There are so many people to interact with in the real world. Maybe go out and talk to them, or maybe better wrestle them.

If admin were to limit blogs to 1 per day I would back it whole heartedly.

Vice Video

For those that don't know there is a video online that describes Meet fighters as a pure fetish site. I haven't included a link as I don't want to further promote it

OK let's get it said up front.

The guys who were on that video are nice guys, I have met most and wrestled some a number of times. THEY ARE NOT AT FAULT, it is the production company.

However the result of the video is that people are leaving the site due to the implication and or inference that everyone on the site has the same wants. This is patently not true and unfair to the people who have worked so hard to make this a wrestling place.

Let's be more tolerant to people generally, if they have a desire for something let them have it, just privately. They should not make the assumption everyone shares their wants. Every guy I have wrestled has understood limits.

I'm sure that some of the group meets I have attended involved people doing stuff I didn't know about. So what? Let's get on with life.

If I do leave the site is in the near future you will know why.

Please stay in touch if you have my mobile details as I want to keep wrestling.

Just browsing MF and then.........,

All of a sudden my screen changes colour, everything is suddenly available on screen and there is a burger in the top right.

Strange times? No it’s just another massive improvement to MF AND SPECIFICALLY THE MOBILE EXPERIENCE.

Zeros and Heroes

I was looking through the list of UK members yesterday and was majorly surprised to find the following.

Approx 800 members have no opponents, some after 7 years! How can this be, the UK has a very welcoming wrestling fraternity. To my knowledge no one is excluded from wrestling, particularly at the excellent meets around the country.

If you actually want to wrestle someone then you can do it. It really is that simple.

I know people get a bit scared when first on the site, trust me when I say we all have been there.

Recently I saw the comment “what have Ingot myself into” on a profile. The answer to that is simple a group of guys who enjoy wrestling!

Then there are the heroes, those who will arrange group meets or allow the use of their home for meets (even if they don’t wrestle that day). There are guys who manage the equivalent of 1 meet every week. I just wish I could.
