    Help me … Help you ….

    Let’s step back and take a nice, long look at ourselves, shall we? It isn’t easy to do but I do think it is needed. I have done it and I am asking you to do it, as well.

    Before I get started let’s be honest from the start and let’s all get on the same page and admit that we are the weird ones. We can bitch all day about how people look at us with confusion when we eat our cold broccoli, dry oatmeal and chicken but you can try to spin it as much as you want to but WE ARE THE FREAKS, not the rest of the world. Other people eat normal food and they don’t truck it around in a cooler so that they don’t miss a meal. They have every right to look at us weird when we take Tupperware into a movie theater or even into a restaurant because, God forbid, we might just have to order off of a menu or wait thirty more minutes to eat after a movie. I think we are the only group of people on the planet that seem to think scheduling sex around a meal time is normal. I am going to discuss some ways that we as a group can act a bit more civilized and maybe get away from that stereotype of being a narcissist.

    Now that we all understand that we are the freaks, let’s see if there are things we can do to rid ourselves of this label that we somehow have gotten, yet, clearly don’t deserve.
    *insert sarcasm stamp here*

    I think a good place to start would be clothing, and more specifically, shirts. This is for both genders so it isn’t as if the guys are the only ones perpetrating this crime. Is there a chance that we could just wear something that is actually our size? I mean our REAL size. And isn’t it time that Affliction has just about run its course? I mean, really?? (Shamelessly stolen from SNL) As bodybuilders we are all concerned that someone might miss our guns. Thing is, if your guns are big enough, no one is going to miss them because your shirt isn’t tight enough. I see guys all the time with comfortable looking shirts that fit and aren’t too tight and I can clearly tell they have big arms. Leave the idea of cramming ten pounds of potatoes into a five pound sack for your girlfriend’s fat ass and her jeans. I won’t hate, I like big girls, too. But even a big girl should know when that ass won’t fit in those jeans.



    If you don’t want to be seen as a narcissist, find something else in this world that you can talk about that has nothing to do with what muscle groups you trained today, how sore you are, how hungry you are, how long you did cardio, what supplements you take, etc.. Again, why would this be a big deal? Because normal people don’t care about that kind of thing and you end up making for boring conversation. What does it say about you if you have nothing else to talk about other than what you did in the gym or what you ate that day? Keep in mind, too, that when you are talking to someone, you might want to pretend you are interested in them and ask them how they are doing. Not many people in this sport want to talk about anyone other than themselves.
    And the women aren’t exempt:
    If you don’t want to be seen as a catty bitch then it would behoove you to not sleep with your girlfriend’s man behind her back and then go on Facebook and pretend you two are BFFs.

    Another gem for the women is when they get together in their little cliques and spend time after training at the gym ripping on the average woman who comes in to get into shape and doesn’t have the “perfect” body. Never mind that she has a career that she has had for fifteen years, makes well over twice the money as the girls talking about her (and has medical, life insurance and a retirement plan) and kids that she would prefer to spend time with than to live in the gym working out all the time and making fun of others. I remember those bitches in high school. How old are we again??

    Even worse are the people that will openly ask for donations to financially support them to prepare for a contest. I'm going to be blunt and to the point for just a second here: if your broke ass cannot afford to do a contest, you have no business asking others to pay for you to do it. To go and ask friends, especially on a public forum like Facebook, to financially support you to do a show that is clearly not a necessity in your life, is about as pathetic as it gets. Instead of doing a show, you might want to consider using that time to pursue a career so that you can afford to not have to panhandle off your friends.

    The bottom line is simple: I think a lot of us should focus just as much on building self-respect and character as we do building muscle. If more people did this, the sport may not have the negative stereotypes that it does. We all like to think that the mainstream public doesn't understand us but.... I think they do. They probably understand us better than we understand ourselves. Just Sayin’.

                          Steel, sadly I no longer have my zubaz at this time. It is really a tragic story. I was on safari in Africa when I saw a baby zebra lose her stripes. The only hope for the zebra to be accepted into the herd was to cloak the zebra in my zubaz. Yes, I am hero.

                          If Sammich doesn't take up my offer I am submitting an ISOM with the zubaz! Hell, I might just buy a few to head OUT ON THE TOWNNNN!

                          Damn, I am just thinking how sexy I am going to look...

                            I have a pair that have bulldogs on them. I think they were meant for pj's but I wear them to the gym on occasion :-)
