The people who say that....What the hell is the matter with them? How do I deal with people like that? I swear I feel like I want to strangle them to death, its starting to get to me.
I know I am doing it for myself, I am not being narcisstic or whatever. I used to be extremely obese and it took soo much of time for me to actually make this progress. But, the hard work I put in, and the result, my enthusiam everything is brought down just by saying, gym is for wussies, dude bodybuilding is gay..., (No offence, not that I am homophobic or anything) But I do feel very insulted that my sexual orientation is being judged because I like to look big and cut...Since when did this happen?
Why the EFF bodybuidling is seen as some gay activity? I know I'd just have to ignore them, but it really bothers me so much that some people are just freaking nuts. They dont even have any idea how much disciple and hard work is involved. Are they jealous, is that why they brand bodybuilding like that?
If one more person who says that, I swear to god, Im gonna lose it. Am I the only one feeling the same way?

People that say that are generally the ones that don't lift a finger to better themselves. They bash it for two reasons. First, because they don't understand it. So instead of trying to, they just bash it. Second, they are jealous. They're going to try minimizing positive things that others do so that they feel better about themselves.Everything depends upon execution; having just a vision is no solution.
Performance and performance alone dictates the predator in any food chain.

Heard those before... And as other member stated, its just them being jellous that they are too lazy, not dedicated and will never be able to achive what you do!!!! Next time one of ur friends says "gym is for wozzise" pretend to get reaaaaly pissed off n give him a good push n watch as his face turns to "oh i just pooped a little n this guy is gonna kick my ass!" clearly anyone who can tell u go to gym they know that ur power is 10x better than their playststion botton mashing thumbs
Ive had someone say why do u look at pics of other guys r u gay... N i dont really care for their comment i just tell em its motivation for me and i will achive that physic no matter how log or what it takes... N only thing they can say to that is repeat what they said before...
But when i ask aaany of those guys to come to gym with me they dont want to; i get excuses left right and center why they cant make it!! And when i get one to come with me n i start lifting doing barbell curls with 90-100lbs n hes curling 20-25lbs they feel like **** and give me a excuse why they cant lift and why they have to go home 30min into my 2hr workout!! After that i never hear a comment from that dude. So im slowly going through my friends one by one lol

These people are just trying to make themselves feel better about their own fatty body. I've luckily not had anyone judge me like that, or at least say it to my face. Any person that did tell me that though I would just say the reasons why I go to the gym, and why I would like to reach a physical peak. Because they don't understand, they bash.

Those are the people that are the "bad influence"... People that find excuses for everything..
These people lack the discipline and drive that we have, the goals that we set and achieve.
They find excuses for everything. So whoever works out is a wuss? What a convenient thing to say to ones self to feel better.....
This video came to mind as i read your post.

Bodybuilding is kinda gay IMO, or rather just masturbation to the male form. Weightlifting on the other hand is tremendous.
What I mean is, bodybuilding is just trying to get bigger than the next guy. It's about the most vain thing I can think of. And at the top, it's a bunch of roided-out, fake-tanned, smiling idiots with shaved buttholes prancing around on a stage. It's a beauty pageant for men.
But weightlifting or power-lifting or whatever you wanna call it focuses on strength, functionality and fitness. Bodybuilding used to be partially about fitness, but I think that died out a few decades ago. There's nothing healthy about injecting yourself with steroids or eliminating carb-intake for weeks on end.
Just my 2 cents.******I support Ron Paul for 2012!******

I love lesbian weddings!

Men by nature are egoistic beings and each man wants to be better than the other men around him. Stronger, faster, bigger and they never settle for 2nd place in competitions and games. Every male (or at least, most) want to be alpha males. This plays a big role in Bodybuilding as we all know.
Who doesn't want to be bigger than the other guy next to him anyway?

Stereotypes are not truth, and perpetuated by corporate marketing.
I just joined to make a comment, I'm an openly gay man and intellectual. There are as many stereotypes about bodybuilders as gay men it seems. Quite Sad!
As you know "straight society" is all about social control, and well, both gay and bodybuilder don't fit the mold. So we are both targets.
Bodybuilders, come from the general population. Some are gay, bi, and straight. yes bodybuilders work out because they dislike physical weakness, that part is psychological, even an insecurity. They also like to be popular, and healthy, though obsessions kick in and that leads to deterioration in health. However, it is gay men who seek out bodybuilders, not bodybuilders seeking out gay men, for the most part. Why? Because a gay bodybuilder, who likes muscles, would not seek out average joes. Not to say all gay men seek out muscled guys, some prefer only obese men (as horrible as it sounds).
Bodybuilders also constantly need money, as supplements are very expensive. When money is waved in their faces by loaded and desperate gay men, they take it. (again, some gay men are desperate and some are confident, like str8 men). Some businessmen latched on to this idea, and now bodybuilders pose, do nude solo scenes, and even have gay sex scenes for gay targeted websites. (Incl those with straight male owners, some corporate).
Sexuality: There was a study done in the 60's (Sambia) which found 20 societies (tribes) in New Guinea which "forced' all males to have age-structured gay oral sex only (first receptive only then later penetrative only) followed by age-structured marriage only with women. It was found that 90% of males were capable of enjoying sex with both genders, once initiated, AND more than half pursued it during those times. 5% of males were incapable of enjoying gay oral sex, and another 5% were incapable of enjoying sex with women. This suggests that society is not heterosexual at all, but predominantly bisexual (though males may still prefer to plow a woman over getting head..that doesn't make them hetero, it just says bisexuality is not even 50/50). Heterosexuality being compulsory, as is socially today, is against nature, as nature is bisexual. Societies (especially Christian and Muslim) invented monogamous marriage and compulsory heterosexuality as a means to populate the earth and take over "with their kind" millenia ago, but it has been way overdone, obviously. Time to change that.
For the most part, like female strippers and brothel women, sex is "work" not fun. Once they don't have to do it, they stop. Bodybuilders intend to find someone they love and admire, not have random sex with a bunch of non-muscled men. (Besides, porn set porn is hardly sex, its more a "show" made to look like sex). Yes, some bodybuilders will realize they enjoy blow jobs by men, but it doesnt change their imagine of beauty (which is usually female). So in conclusion, its corporate marketing which has made you think porn is sex, that sexualized bodybuilding, and reaps the vast majority of profits from the bodybuilding sport and the gay community, and the one who is perpetuating the stereotypes and egging it on. They want you to buy into it, its a highly profitable product.

As to whether bodybuilding is gay, well in its most simple form it is just building a more muscular body. That cannot by definition be gay.
Normally the people who say BBing and similar are gay are a bunch of Freud obsessed wankers who think sex is significant and at the root of every single little action. Consequently, the only reason men look and judge other men MUST be because they are gay for them
If anyone says it is gay to your face - just ask them how they know... a question to which there is no credible answer.~~~~~()_)_)_)_)_)_)_)_)_)_)_)_)

Aren't people "forced" in society to be straight? I wonder this. How is it when people are 'drunk' they are willing to do more things. It happened a lot with some societies, like the greeks, but it was 'acceptable'. We don't really know what affects it.
I agree with the 'compulsory' (then again, it had to be otherwise we wouldn't be here!). We are 'conditioned' to like the opposite sex. Most people expect you to reproduce.
Even in things like 'straight porn', a male is almost always present. Lesbo porn is surprisingly rare, even more so the female solos. Notice how much of the men are realitively fit, attractive and packing? There's something quite erotic about it, but it does not necessarily mean one is 'gay'. That's a vague definition anyways as is bisexuality.
Yes, men in bodybuilding are judged on attractiveness (that's proportions for ya) and there's nothing wrong with it. I can 'like' how another guy looks but doesn't mean I want to jump his bones. If that makes since.

Losing your cool shows insecurity and will give that person validation. Who gives a damn what they think. They'll understand when they're dead from not taking care of themselves and you're playing with your grand kids into your 90s. Don't ever forget the ultimate goal here... Bettering yourself. You'll only look better by ignoring foolish comments like this.

Bodybuilding. powerlifting, weightlifting = better physique, more control over your body, better discipline, better health
Sitting on ass all day, eating cake, struggling to lift the vacuum cleaner out of the cupboard = fat, unhealthy, lazy, lacking in ambition.
End of."I'll do today what others won't so I can do tomorrow what others can't" - such a fitting quote for bodybuilding!

Whats wrong with trying to look after yourself - obviously I wouldnt openly go on about always going the gym or what brand of facial cleanser I used but doesnt mean I shouldnt do it.
Anyway I dont think gay people would go to the gym to look at people anymore than I would go the gym to stare at women.
