T Nation | Redefining The Female Bodybuilder

Well, this article kinda pisses me off. I’m sorry, I’ve seen people post it on here and say how much they love it. Well sorry, I do not. I don’t need you to redefine the female bodybuilder. You don’t like the female bodybuilders? You think they look manly and you don’t like that they use “drugs”…great. No one needs you to like it, especially not the women who are indeed female bodybuilders. You like to go to the gym and lift? Great, you’re fit! You might even be a fitness enthusiast! You’re not a bodybuilder. Bodybuilding is a sport. If someone likes to go shoot hoops at the end of their driveway are they now basketball players? Or are you a football player if you and your buddies go toss a ball around in the yard? No you’re not. Female bodybuilding is what it is. And I’m sorry if it keeps women away from the gym - but that’s a pretty weak fucking excuse if you ask me. I’m not trying to diminish anyone’s progress in the gym, if you’re in there doing work and kicking ass, that’s great and I’m super excited for you. But I also don’t want anyone to diminish what the ladies who are true bodybuilders do either…this article says they want bodybuilding to be all inclusive, what the fuck does that mean? That they get to redefine a term that doesn’t even apply to them and take it from the group that it ACTUALLY applies to. That’s some fucking nonsense and I am disappointed that t-nation would even post some garbage like that. I’m prepared for the unfollowing that is going to ensue in 3,2,1…

I feel as though this article would have been better going on about the hyper-sexualisation of female bodybuilders.

Even if people unfollow you, everything which you have said is right.

Agreed!!! That would be a GREAT subject for an article!!

When people order decaf skinny drinks I wonder why they hate themselves so much.

This makes me feel like a piece of shit

I feel the need to state that they also made a "Fat Guy Tinder Date" video.  I was definitely agitated by this gifset, but watching both videos gives some much needed context. 

This is like fat suit Gwyneth Paltrow…fucking ignorant. Like anyone is surprised that these dudes are not into it. I’m pretty sure anyone who has ever been on an internet date can tell you they would prefer for the person to look as their pics suggest. Whether they’re make or female.

So I just read this news report   

bouquet-of-bubs:

allaphoristic:

about a woman in New York who’s daughter died because she was arrested for breastfeeding in public. The cop forcefully pulled the mom, causing her to drop her 3 month old baby and CONTINUED TO ARREST HER while onlookers tried to stop the baby’s bleeding. Let’s get this straight, shall we?: biologically, WOMEN HAVE BREASTS TO BREASTFEED THEIR CHILDREN. It’s great that you find them attractive, let’s call that a happy side effect, but they SHOULD NOT EVER be policed by your sexualization of them. Not only was this mom released, having done NOTHING ILLEGAL, but now her daughter is dead because this cop couldn’t get over his own sexism. I am so mad.

What the fuck. I’m speechless and my heart aches for that soul and mother

Snopes people. That was a fake news report. Don’t believe everything some tumblr person posts a so-called link to.
