Get Stuff We Love
It was the acronym heard around the world.
UFC champ Ronda Rousey's now famous comments about how she refuses to be a "DNB" — "do nothing b----" — got both men and women talking about body image, and now the UFC champ is selling T-shirts with the catchphrase to raise money for charity.
Rousey explains the term, which came up as she was addressing comments that her body is "masculine," on the T-shirt's website:
"I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do nothing b----. A DNB. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else," she says. "That's why I think it's hilarious if my body looks masculine or something like that. Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f------ millionaires doesn't mean it's masculine. I think it's femininely badass as f--- because there's not a single muscle on my body that isn't for a purpose, because I'm not a do nothing b----."
While many fans praised the T-shirt, which costs $25 and benefits Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, some women think the slogan is sending the wrong message.
Others questioned the image she put on the T-shirt — of herself in underwear, perched on a bed.
But Rousey isn't one to shy away from controversy. The 28-year-old slighted Floyd Mayweather after she won the ESPY for Best Fighter this year, an award Mayweather was also up for, telling reporters, "I wonder how Floyd feels being beat by a woman for once," according to ESPN. She's also said she would beat Mayweather in a fight, explaining in a recent "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit:
"Floyd is one of the best boxers of all time," she said. "He would definitely beat me in a boxing match. I unfortunately don't get into 'matches.' I fight for a living. In a no-rules fight, I believe I can beat anyone on this planet."
Rousey defeated Bethe Correia at UFC 190 in Brazil earlier this month.
