This is Lynn Tucker of Charleston, West Virginia. Even though Lynn is only 30, she’s already had seven kids. But now, as Lynn says, “The factory’s closed,” and she can enjoy a natural segue into other womanly pursuits. Such as, oh, I don’t know, beating the crap out of other women. From the Charleston Daily Mail:

Tucker…has signed up as a boxer in the Rough N’ Rowdy Brawl this weekend at the Charleston Civic Center.

“I’ve always wanted to do this, but I’ve been pregnant my entire adult life,” said Tucker, a 30-year-old Charleston resident. “I got married when I was 18, and I’ve been pregnant ever since.”

So when Friday rolls around, she’s planning to lace on her gloves, climb into the ring and hope for the best.

Participation by women in the annual, popular Rough N’ Rowdy is on the rise, said Chris Smith, the promoter. This year, a record 25 women are participating in the boxing contest. They’re divided among lightweight and heavyweight, with the winners of each taking home about $1,000.

Leave it to West Virginia to develop innovative ways of objectifying women. I guess the wet t-shirt contest was canceled due to inclement weather. Or maybe they just can’t spare the water. They live up in them mountains, see. They make their own fun.
