Don’t Fear The Fetish

It should be no surprise that the world of female muscle and fitness has a fetish element. There is one section of the female muscle fandom highly devoted to mixed wrestling, sessions, fmg art, and stories. Typically, the hardcore fans are called schmoes, which carries a pejorative connotation. Supporters and fans of the female fitness culture tend to be suspicious or want to repudiate this section of fans. The reason mostly surrounds an irrational fear of fetish element. Everyone fan and athlete alike has an opinion about the female muscle fetish subculture. Some believe such activities lower the image of the sport. Other view it as harmless. It would be a hyperbole to say that the female muscle fetish element has harmed female bodybuilding. The biggest damage came from the corporations in the fitness industry and lack of sponsorship. Generally, this is the case with the majority of women’s sports along with unequal pay. Yet, detractors never mention those issues. Thus, a scapegoat is created to deflect attention away from the actual problem of institutional practices holding women back. Some athletes and fans have become very fearful of the female muscle fetish element within the fitness industry. There should be no concern  about this aspect of women’s involvement in fitness. Rather than judge there should be an understanding about why people like it and participate. Fans who are content creators even avoid the subject. A female muscle fetish is nothing to be scared or ashamed of.

            The male followers of female bodybuilders develop a female muscle fetish for a number of reasons. Personal experience, media images, or the ideas about aesthetics contribute to this development.   This is not just liking the muscular physique, this is immersing one’s self into the subculture. Men may go to session wrestling appointments, be members of websites , or produce web content of their own. That could feature art or stories. An outsider looking at these materials may be perplex or have more negative feelings. the first thought is that this is strange or abnormal. Other  opinions are more exaggerated such as this is a sexual perversion.  These views are spoken from a perspective of ignorance rather than knowledge.

The question then becomes, how is this anything different from other activities ? Every subculture as a strange uniqueness to it. There is memorabilia collection, platforms of fan communication. and merchandising . Anime fandom has cosplay, conventions, and fan dubs. What is colloquially called “nerd culture” consists of comics, video games, and science fiction.  The female muscle fandom and fetish follows in that similar sociological model. Fans enjoy discussing their favorite subject with other fans and exchanging materials of the subculture. The muscle woman fetish happens from exposure. Many men in say in their youth they were exposed to an image that sparked their interest. As the years pass the attraction grew. Others may just like the concept of a strong woman. It seems that now in popular culture and wider society  the notion of a strong independent woman is slowly becoming more accepted. The female muscle fans were celebrating this idea in a more literal way.

It seems odd in the age of girl power being promoted that the muscular woman is still regulated to the space of subculture.  The female muscle fans were more progressive before many people were.

       Some say that the fetish element tarnishes the sport. This seems more facetious, rather than a statement of fact. Whatever the general public view is of the sport is, has little to due with the fetish element. The problem is the narrow view of what women should be and can do. Traditionalist would say women should not be allowed to do this at all. That dated mode of thinking needs to be retired. The idea that some how if the fetish element did not exist, female bodybuilding would gain more mainstream appeal is false. The sport itself is smaller compared to team sports like soccer  or basketball. There has been rapid expansion over the years, but it may not reach the level of larger sports. The subcultural appeal makes it unique and fun for longtime dedicated fans. Adding certain subculture to the mainstream tends to degrade their quality to a generic and uninteresting activity. Female bodybuilding and muscular women are slowly becoming more mainstream. The hope is that the wonderfully unique quality of women’s fitness culture remains intact. The fact that women are posing on stage in very little clothing is sexual. The only reason there is some distinction is that the women present a different type of beauty. The women’s bodies are analyzed from their chests, legs, arms, and torsos. That is in itself a fetish.

There are certain parts of the human body that people like and pay attention to. The sport just wants the body sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing representation.  It cannot be ignored that there was a sexual element before the female muscle fetish. Women in bikinis who appeared in advertisements and TV are not just there for the sale of products. The fact that there is a sexual or fetish element should not reflect poorly on the sport. Human nature enables this sexual expression. That is not what the sport is all about either. Bodybuilding is about creating a powerful and balanced physique.

         The fear surrounding the fetish element has several origins. Ignorance seems to be a major culprit. People tend to ostracize what they cannot understand. The intense predilection for the athletic or muscular female physique produces these feelings. Liking or having a fetish for muscular women should not be feared. It is no different from liking women who are red headed or have another particular type of  feature. Another issue is people’s problem and lack of knowledge about human sexuality and behavior. Sexology  is a topic rarely discussed in mainstream circles. Human sexual behavior is driven by psychological, biological, and sociological forces. It is not entirely understood and more research has to be done. Fetishes are not bad or abnormal rather just a type of sexual expression. The only time it could be harmful is that it interrupts daily functioning. Most men with this fetish are average and come from a variety of backgrounds. The other reason for the fear of the fetish element is that it makes the women’s fitness culture appear sleazy. This has to be the most illogical fear. Women wrestling men or doing wrestling session is no more sleazy than offering pole dance fitness classes. Making such claims makes a critic look like nothing more than a traditionalist fanatic creating a moral panic. The fitness industry has operated on the concept that sex sells for decades.  The “moral purity” argument lacks credibility.

Objections and irrational fears seem to held together by weak or spurious claims. Society must learn to deal with human sexual behavior in a healthy and balanced way. The desire to either eliminate or act like it does not exist does not help. An opened mind about other people’s behavior and decisions can go a long way.

       The fear of the fetish element can also be internalized by fans. It is not uncommon for fans of female muscle to hide their videos, books,magazines, or any other material related to strong women. These items are not even adult content. The nervousness feelings about being judged for their preference in women becomes intense. What should be noted is that not all female muscle fans are hardcore fetish fans. Some may watch those videos or read fmg stories, yet have never done a session. These two factions of fans are not abnormal or deviant. They just enjoy different elements of the female muscle fandom.This is the life of a secret fan hiding what they like for fear of judgement. This is unfortunate to love something in secret. There should not be shame if a person has a female muscle fetish. People are into different activities. It does not matter what others think of it. Just as long as individuals like it and get enjoyment out of it. Denying the existence of the fetish element seem more ridiculous when it is an open secret.

       Session wrestling has been a financial tool for some athletes, when the sponsors left. Even women’s sports that are larger in exposure face a money problem. The women just found out how to finance their expenses for competition . However, there are women who have enough money not to do sessions. Some do it for the fun of it. There is no surprise that women may share with men some fetishes. Women just like men have sexual urges and fetishes. The reason it is not been discussed is that women were forced to be silent about it. Throughout history women’s sexuality and behavior was rigidly controlled. The sexual revolution change that in the 1960s. Women had greater sexual freedom and birth control enable more control of their bodies. Sexual expression was no longer for men only. It should be no surprise that women may feel some type of turn on wrestling men. This may be acting out a female power fantasy. Male sexual fantasies are well known, but female versions remain a mystery. The women who get pleasure out of sessions may like the idea they can dominate a man physically. When it is the instance of muscle worship, the idea of being treated like a Queen. This has not been studied in depth so what can be stated is just conjecture.

        session wrestling, muscle worship, and the female muscle fetish are just a part of the female muscle fandom. Accepting that fact will not damage the sport as a whole.The fetish element is nothing to be feared or treated with ignominious behavior. Humanity must come to terms with its sexual behavior and sexuality. This is not to say that the female athletes are sex objects designed for male pleasure. These women are athletes of the highest caliber; they deserve respect. That does not mean all should pretend that the sexual or fetish element does not exist. The reason fans flock to contests, collect photos, and watch videos is to see the unique aesthetic  presentation of the muscular  female body. Maybe the controversy is not so much about what the women and fans do, rather it is how people react to a new image of woman. The public may not realize it, but there has been a major change in gender roles and how the sexes relate to one another. What can be learned is not to fear change or something different.

Response To Bodybuilding for Women -How Much is Too Much (2009)

On The Black Hand Side is a blog that discusses news, politics, and social issues from an African American perspective. Occasionally it will focus on sports and entertainment. While this post is ten years old it caught my attention. Female athleticism still remains a controversial subject for many. Female athletes are subject to both harsh ostracism and sometimes extreme sexist abuse. The post here is not from a rabid misogynist or an ignorant person. This is a perspective from a fan of the golden age who claims they followed female bodybuilding up to the mid-1980s. At that stage they express the women became “too much.” The strange part is that one of the most prominent and successful bodybuilders is a black woman. That year Iris Kyle made an appearance in Jet Magazine  . The article is a short opinion, but it is not vituperative. Rather it accepts people’s differing tastes. The problem is that their is not support for a black person who is successful in a field in on a website that focuses on African American issues and concerns. The writer states ”     to each his or her own so my preference has absolutely no effect on Ms. Kyle or anyone else.” Women who do this have to endure ridicule from both inside and outside of the sport. While everyone has the right to their opinion it does not give a another a license to be rude. The author had no intention of being rude just stating another view on physique aesthetics ”  when I saw the photo of Ms. Kyle I was shocked by her extreme muscle development. “

Too Much for Women ?

I guess this could be a shock to people who not seen such an athlete. There are other words that describe their achievements better. Impressive, magnificent, and amazing are just a few words that could be spoken about some of the best athletes in strength sports. The bodybuilding sport is subjective, which is why there are debates about aesthetics.The fact that the female bodybuilding physique looks the way it does has to do with a logical evolution. Overtime, athletes improve and training becomes more sophisticated. The less informed just put it down to drugs, but training and diet  has more of an effect on the final result. The author avoids the controversies surrounding unequal pay and limited media coverage . The one major issue that cannot be ignored is that there is a strong relation between sexism and the demand that every woman look the same. Double standards are so ingrained many people do not recognize it.

     A woman being “too much” or “too big” seems to be a matter of perspective. Some think a woman who does not fit in a size zero dress. Clearly, some protest too much. To be honest seeing women like this may be overwhelming to some who has not. Fans who have seem women who  are this muscular are not shocked. Anything new takes time getting used to. This really is not the problem, but the vicious responses people have. At the extreme they are overtly sexist or homophobic. Part of this reaction comes from anxieties about women’s increasing power and influence in society. The feminist movement, changes in the economy, and shifting gender roles has caused fear in some men. Women entering areas that were mostly male dominated face hostility. Women’s bodies were subject to control and that had radically changed. The muscular woman overturns notions about women’s physical capabilities. Frailty, weakness, and inferiority were associated with the female body. The narrow traditionalist view was that women’s bodies were only meant for childbirth. Women show that they are capable of many things. Sports and physical activity was thought to be exclusively a man’s game. Some would have even laughed to think that women could be strong or build such physiques.

When Title IX took effect women had more access to sports participation. A new generation of female athletes were competing internationally and locally. The female bodybuilder presented a body that was entirely new. There were muscular women before prior to this,but never had women developed this type aesthetic. The earlier physiques were smaller, yet still had noticeable development. Around 1990 and 1991 the female bodybuilder became much more robust in size and definition. Bev Francis  ushered in a much more larger look, which is the standard common on female bodybuilding stages. Since 1991 the debate about women being “too big” emerged. Critics even said that women went too far. These arguments are a matter of taste and were solved with different divisions. Fitness, figure, physique, bikini, and a new wellness class Appeared to settle the agreement. There is no reason why larger women cannot be part of the fitness family. It should also be remembered that in the golden age of the sport many objected to women competing.

           The 1980s was considered the golden age with competitors like Rachel Mclish and Carla Dunlap. They still faced harsh criticism and unwanted comments from the public. At the time, the US politically reverted back to a staunch conservatism that wanted to reverse the gains of the feminist movement and the civil rights struggle. The American public was still getting used to the idea of the female athlete and were more prejudiced about a woman with muscle. Vituperation even came from within fitness circles. Challenges still remain regarding pay and sex prejudice. It was much worse in the late 20th century. The same negative stereotypes have been used ad nauseum. Women were accused of either trying to be “manly” or man haters. They were accused of doing this not because they loved the sport, but wanted to get in men’s way. Opinions from detractors never seem to be that diverse or different. The claim is that women are destroying their beauty has been one myth widely circulated. What is considered beautiful varies from culture, country, and personal opinion. Bodybuilding functions on another system of aesthetics.

Female bodybuilding has spread to other countries. This is a competition in India.

Another argument is that women doing this are harming their health. The only way bodybuilding could be dangerous is if performance enhancing drugs are used or athletes engage in overt raining. This criticism lacks cogency simply on the basis that women were restricted from doing most activities simply because it was deemed too dangerous for them. Women were once thought to be child like and needed supervision. Many cultures had a system of guardianship in which women had a male relative supervise them until marriage. Despite vociferous objections, women are going to do what they want. It should be understood that the negativity or sex prejudice is not new.

            Sex bias does appear in various sports and bodybuilding is no exception. Women also may criticize other women’s appearance. Ironically, some female athletes do this to each other, which demonstrates how sexism can be internalized. Lenda Murray stated about Iris Kyle in 2011 ” that she sacrificed her look as a woman.” This was statement made in Muscular Development magazine.  The problem with this perspective is that if you look close, Lenda and Iris have similar bodies. There is a reason they won so many Ms.Olympia championships. It seems that muscular women are at times ambivalent or some even ashamed of their muscularity. Fortunately, the women who have attained that level have learned to handle internal feelings and the unwanted commentary directed at them. Women would not have to endure this double standard if they were males. Men’s athletic talent is praised while women’s accomplishments go ignored or worse condemned.

Women can accomplish many things, but sex bias gets in the way of full equality and respect. The muscular woman struggles in a world that makes prejudgments without facts. There is some hope. Some people may not like the look, but can see that it is impressive. Others admire the diligence and athletic achievement. Education may be the cure for sex prejudice in reference to women who look different. A new term body shaming has emerged in recent years. This is normal directed at women with more weight to their bodies,however little emphasis is put on women with muscular body types. The puzzling question is why is there such a negative reaction to strong women ? This may extend beyond simple sexism or bias.

         The muscular woman seeing as this is a new image produces feelings of either fear, anxiety, or at an extreme hate. Fear is mostly a product of being uncertain of the unknown. It is not entirely sure what women have more power socially,politically, or physically means for the future. Men’s identity either has to be changed or adjusted. Women gaining any power does not mean men have to be demoted to an inferior position. Fear can result in anxiety in some men about the rapid changes in gender relations. The women who become physically powerful  are not out to establish a n amazon matriarchy. Nor are they trying to steal the spotlight from men. It is erroneous to assume that women getting power would result in men getting abused. The extreme of this is men who think women should all look the same and only exist to serve them. Some men think they can bully any woman on the basis that they are biologically superior. The biological sexist normally state that men’s greater strength gives them the right to dominate women. Thinking that strength is male only,when they see a woman who is more powerful than them they question their femininity. There is a level of intimidation and insecurity revolving around this behavior. Men who doubt their own masculinity feel the need to degrade women to elevate themselves. Hate for women projects itself in different ways.

Some men do not like the idea of strong women. The idea of  women competing with them on a physical level causes resentment.

Female bodybuilder build impressive physiques. There is no reason to vituperate them for doing what they love.

They are just like any other woman. 

The first is believing women cannot do anything or if they do it is pathetic in comparison .  Another from of projection is to either ridicule women no matter what they do. At some point global society will mature to an extent in which this is not the case. Change or exposure to different things takes some time to acclimate to.

          Mere disagreement does not always mean sexism or sex bias. Fans have multiple tastes. Factions either favor the fitness or figure division.  Other might prefer female bodybuilding only or physique. Then there are new additions such as bikini and wellness which some may have reservations about. Gradually, there is more acceptance. Then there are fans who just like any amount of muscle on women and all divisions. Where ever a fan places them self  there is something for everyone. The question of being too big or too much has been solved already. Different classes have certain levels of size, definition, and conditioning. A fan has a wide variety of choice when attending a competition. We would never say in this day and age that a woman is too smart. A comment like that would be met with condemnation. Still saying a woman is too muscular or strong seems acceptable. There are conservative ideas about what women should and what they can do that must be abandoned. Women are going to be more active in various arenas and it is time that be accepted. The adjustment will not be simple one. Women have been struggling through the bodybuilding and fitness world with cases of opposition. The positive development  is the growing number of fans thanks to the internet and social media. To The Black Hand Side’s question is that there is no such thing as too much. The real question is how far do you want to develop your body.

A Confutation To Broscience : The Fun Side of Being With A Female Bodybuilder

“The Downsides of Having Sex With A Female Bodybuilder” from Broscience was published in 2015.  Another  article that pondered the topic appeared on Spot Me Bro. Both were so similar you would have thought it was plagiarism. Or maybe so many people think the same their writing is identical . The real comedy is that none of the authors even have dated or gotten close to a female bodybuilder. How can you write about something you do not know?   The Spot Me Bro article has since disappeared, but my response has not on VK media ( Spot Me Bro ).  The poor attempt at humor is more painful than watching Amy Schumer  stand up. They are the same quotes and ideas espoused by female muscle haters on forums, videos sites, or social media. This is the land of npcs in which anyone who looks, thinks, or acts differently is automatically castigated. Although my response to the Broscience article was a relative short one ( Broscience)  I feel that this needs a bigger exclamation point. Our poor bros do not understand what they are missing. Being with a female bodybuilder has more potential than you think. Our bros only think about the act of sex, rather than a possible long term relationship or a marriage. You would be in good hands with ( or locked in arms) with such a woman.  The fun side of being with a strong woman  outweigh cons. Being with and seeing different people can broaden your horizons. One just needs an open mind.

      Beauty comes in many forms it is just unfortunate only one paradigm is presented as ideal. The female form can have many versions of beauty. This is not about presenting one type as ideal or superior  rather enjoying variety.  The muscular female form combines strength and feminine grace into one entity. Bodies almost take on god like imagery. These women look like warriors ready for battle. The muscular woman seems like a goddess radiating with power. All the same areas that men find attractive on women are merely exaggerated to the highest degree. The posterior and legs are popular sights of interest. It makes a man also pay special attention to other parts of a woman’s body. Normally,  the back is not a favorite part of men. When a lover of female bodybuilders is asked they articulate a beauty in a sculpted back.

The lines, the curvature, and the size of the latissimus dorsi  produce a look similar to a statue. Their bodies have been molded into living works of art. What some consider spectacle is actually a testament to how incredible the human body is. This admiration is beyond erotic desire rather a respect for an aesthetic paradigm. The female flesh is molded into something majestic. It takes an immense amount of mental and physical effort to attain such physical prowess. Such women have not lost their femininity; they have expanded its definition. Womanhood does not have to be frail and helpless; it can be strong and dynamic. This is more of the philosophical basis for liking women of such strength. The sudden beauty fad is to favor women with curves, but the muscular woman had curves prior to it being popular. This may be too hard for the Broscience guys to understand. Some people have different tastes in women. Opening your views to accepting other forms of beauty widens your options.

       Broscience got it backwards about having relations with a female bodybuilder. Why wouldn’t an eligible bachelor want to have some physical intimacy with a different type of woman.  Make no mistake this will be physically intense. These girls are not linebackers or men with vaginas. They are dedicated athletes with the bodies of She-Hulk and the strength of Wonder Woman.  While some men may have a problem with women having more power in both the physical and social sense, the reality is men are going to go to what they want. Brosceince says your friends may tease you, but so what. This is a different sexual experience. Many couples say they get bored doing the same thing. People may get sick of being with the same type in a relationship.

These women are unique in the sense their bodies are different. They are strong and at the same time have a soft voluptuousness. Is this is fetish ? Liking muscular women is not a fetish by itself. That is just a preference for a particular body type. There are fetishes specific to the love of strength and muscles known as cratolagnia and stehnolagnia. Buff babes are the greatest thing for people with this type of fetish. Sometimes it is not about the looks; it’s the confidence that the women project. People ruin their chance for happy interpersonal relations due to their insecurities. Women often get  too clinger like  with  their partner. Men have the desire to be too domineering in their relationships. Broscience says that when you go with a woman like this, “you’re not the man.” The opposite is true. You will go from being a 98 pound weakling to a super saiyan god. These women put hair on your chest. Depending on the woman the sexual experience may vary.Make no mistake it will be wild and wonderful. There will be one thing harder than the muscles on your girl’s body. If your performance is good you should be proud. Especially if you are thinner or smaller man in body size this should be a praised accomplishment.

           There could be complications being with a woman bigger and stronger than you. Some gals just may not know their own strength. However, getting physically intimate with a muscle woman is not like a WWE match. Let’s assume our Amazon does not want to practice MMA for a second. Copulation really involves the lower body were the reproductive organs are located. Unless our strong woman in question is wrapping her legs around you as hard as she can, there’s nothing to fear. Some guys like it rough. Take a risk my fellows it eliminates the dullness of life. If our gals are getting too rough remember the safety word. There is no shame in saying she is hurting you. If you want to be macho just let her go at it. A man  could have the best night of his  life. Why would you want to miss out on that ?

 Getting certain women can be a dramatic ego boost. Being with a strong woman just is a demonstration of how much of an alpha man you can be. It takes a man of extreme strength to handle women of high quality.This should not be regulated to a one night stand. You’ll probably want to see her again and again. Few men would express it publicly, but there is something sexy about a physically powerful woman. Gym bros should be more than willing to be with ladies that share their interest. If not that means more muscle women for us average Joes. After awhile you just get tired of women falling for the same gorilla size jocks; let other men have a chance. Women may only be attracted to men solely for their status, but women with more rational judgement select men  of character. Who knows ? Maybe opposites can attract.

        Having a relationship with a female bodybuilder would definitely be a unique experience.  For one thing, you almost become a celebrity with all the stares in public. This may bother you at first, however there is a thrill to getting attention by way of the woman you are with. A bashful person may be overwhelmed by this fact. Others may take it negatively, but the stares and attention may not be out of disgust or disdain. It could be simple curiosity. Just like that you have become famous with your female bodybuilder.

It is  the Kardashian effect . Do nothing and become famous. The only downside to this is that pretty women get the attention of other men. Don’t be jealous or frustrated; she’s with you after all.  It’s highly unlikely she’ll run off just with another guy because she gets one compliment or a passing glance. When you are with a woman like this, attention from other people is unavoidable.  Who cares what other people think ( if they do that in the fist place) . Judgment only comes from the closed minded and people who don’t try to understand. Just sit back and enjoy the extra attention.

      Goal driven women may not have as much time for you. A competitive female athlete has a very structured schedule. Being with her much as you would like just may not be feasible.  This may be a downside, however it has benefits. Often couples may enjoy long periods of one another’s company. After awhile people may just need their personal space. This is not pushing a person away rather having time to one’s self. Some women feel that all of a man’s attention should be devoted them, but really do not need to do the same in return. Men continually have to put more effort into relationships. There is even more labor in simply starting one. A woman with a certain focus may not demand things to such a degree that you feel more like a servant. Strong women have a level of independence, which means they do not have the same insecurities that are projected by other women. The real insecure ones become jealous when you engage in conversion with other women, have the need to know where you are at all times, or constantly ask  how you feel about them. Trust simply is not there. The strong and confident woman trusts you. When you see her after training it will be more of a delightful treat.

        There is an advantage of being with a fit woman which is related to health. A fit woman will keep a man healthy. It has been proven that men who are married do live longer on average ( well so do sheltered house cats). Eating out may have to be reduced. Burger King and McDonald’s are not part of an athlete’s diet. Well, maybe on occasion a cheat meal can be allowed. At least seeing  your partner eat healthy may inspire you to do so.  Positive encouragement is the best method for long term change in lifestyle choices. A healthy woman can keep a man healthy. The diet will be sugar and mostly fat free, but you will be full. Chicken, eggs, and vegetables could be your diet. Another benefit to being with a female bodybuilder is a personal exercise partner. It is easier to remain dedicated when a person is there providing support. She will also get more motivated in her goals as well. The point is to elevate one another. A strong woman may help improve both your fitness and health. There could be psychological benefits as well. A woman that takes care of herself would certainly not let her man fall into decline.

        The fun side overall would be to experience a woman both physically and emotionally who is different. Exposure to an assortment of people allows us to grow. Don not seek conformity or the same thing out of life. Embrace variety and great things will follow. Broscience only thinks about the physical part of a relationship; one should be looking at the full benefits of a long term engagement. Maybe you and your Amazon princess can frolic off into the sun set. It may be your dream come true. It is funny how so many people disparage something before they even try it. Those who claim they do not like women of such appearance contradict themselves when going got with one. Changing your mind is fine, but acting like you are not a recent convert is not. The internet has shown there are a portion of men that do not find a muscular woman unappealing. To them they are their ultimate dream and fantasy. Even some large muscle bros are into muscle women. It makes sense seeing as it is a woman that shares their passion. Broscience does not get it. Buff babes are the best thing on Earth. You just need to open your eyes to see the greatness in front of you.

A Confutation To Broscience : The Fun Side of Being With A Female Bodybuilder

Please Stop Praying At Sporting Events

Religion still remains a large part of people’s lives even in a highly technological and information based post-industrial society. There remains the debate on whether science and religion can coexist in a civilization. There are obvious extremes in the spectrum that can be seen in religious fanaticism and scientism. Blind devotion to a single ideology can be dangerous, if it suppresses critical thinking skills. Whatever belief system an individual adopts, it should be subject to rigorous analysis and criticism.  For the believers in a higher power, there is one practice that should be stopped. Praying at sporting events should not be done. The problem with this is that it merely makes faith seem nothing more than wish granting from an unseen genie. If one is going to make a plea for for an event to change, why do something out of a selfish motivation ? Organized religion survives in the modern world due to the fact it is a meme that is transferred from generation to generation. The discomfort of knowing at some point life will end makes some want to believe that their is immortality of the soul. People who suffer under extreme conditions like the idea that their is some God protecting them from harm. There is no evidence that such a force or creature exists. Faith is just the conviction that such a God exists without any factual basis. Prayer to the pious acts as a communication link. Athletes and fans that pray during sporting events almost take this act and cheapen its value.

          Athletes and fans tend to pray at sporting events with the hope that it will reverse their fortunes. The question remains why would God care about a sporting event ? It seems devoid of all logic. Why would an omnipotent and wise being care about a simple game. It would make less sense for such an entity to care about a regular person. Few people care about the ants  that they step on walking down a street. God and humanity can be compared in the same manner. The more power something has, the less it will care about a being below it.

God has nothing to do with where you got in life. Too often people say they are “blessed” when when something positive happens to them. People can end up in various situations both good or bad, but divine intervention has nothing to do with it. An athlete praying for success or the strength to continue seems more comedic, when other factors are considered. Diligence, talent, support from family or friends are the keys to an athlete’s success. A good coach provide motivation and guidance, when stress or disillusionment can be fall an athlete. People rather thank some entity they have never sensed  than the people who moved them forward. Praying too much almost reduces its relevance. Praying over meals, celebrations, and before bed becomes  a ludicrous practice. There is nothing wrong with people having a religious belief system, but there is a point when it becomes excessive. The more dangerous cases result in extremist thought.

         Praying at a football or basketball game does not hurt anyone. Yet, religious fundamentalism is a serious threat to freedom and basic human rights. States that cling to religious law will not adhere to the rule of law. Fundamentalist religion seeks to impose one ideology on everyone and devalues other systems of thought. The Christian right in the United States attempts to undermine science and open debate of ideas. The reject human evolution, climate science, and women’s reproductive rights. The Islamic Republic of Iran is a theocracy in which one religion is law. Israel although it has democratic institutions is a theocracy in the sense that it is  a state for Jews only. The ethno-religious centrism of the Likud Party sees only Jews as citizens with Arabs, Somali, and Ethiopian   people in the state not be true citizens.  Islamism and Zionism are examples of the perils of fundamentalist religion. The Christian right in America are also on a crusade to discriminate against the LGBTQ community. The traditional academic theology is also under attack beaten down by extremist voices.

article-0-0257341100000578-258_468x286 Theology is a rich philosophical discipline. Over time as the major monotheistic religions became organized religion. Organized religion is designed to control a population and prevent a disturbance in the status quo. The establishment of the Catholic Church and the Protestant Reformation are cases in which organized religion was used to control the political affairs of states. Islam was used by the Ottoman Empire to keep subjects unified. Even in countries that are secular organized religion still has some influence over politics. The fact that appears in sports also show its hold over culture.

         When prayer is done it is assumed that it is a direct communication to God. Thinking critically, this poses a logical problem. There is no one who answers and believers say God only communicates indirectly. The claim is either there are miracles or possible supernatural forces ( angels).  Faith is not fact. Simply believing in idea does not make it true. It can be verified that certain animals exist. Microorganisms can be detected by microscopes. Subatomic particles can be detected by linacs and cyclotrons. God cannot be detected or proven to exist. The concept of faith would not be acceptable to people if someone said ” I have faith your operation will be successful” or  ” I have faith you will be paid for your work .” The answers people would want are either a definite yes or no. Obviously,  faith and logic cannot not coexist so people selectively use logic depending on the situation.

406368-bfdc47b7d77d641d3af6bcfd5e875fa6.png   Cognitive dissonance can be found in followers of religion. At a greater extreme some may be just contradictory or hypocritical. The closed minded either say the heathens, gentiles, or infidels are going to face eternal damnation for not following the right religion. If  God never told a person what the “right” religion was, then such a claim is ridiculous. Religious texts are not authored by supernatural forces; they were written by people.  There cannot be cases in which a person demands evidence and others not. Religion is not just something followed by the credulous. There still a large portion of the world population that follow multiple faiths.The reason why religion still remains in a world that become more technologically advanced is due to humanity’s fear of uncertainty and death.

         Uncertainty is something that most do not like. Many want to feel in control of their fate or destiny, but can be random. Life may not turn out the way one expects or misfortune can occur. Uncertainty only adds to fear. It can be potentially a pathway to a better life. The reality is that there are no simple answers to major questions of life and existence. This takes an immense amount of thought and introspection. The existentialist approach is that life is what you make it. Instead of seeking answers from a religious system or political ideology an individual charts their own course. The biggest uncertainty in life is the end of it. Death comes for all living things. Age, disease, and violence are how human beings reach their end. The idea of dying or simply no long existing bring fear to one’s thoughts.

Graves_Cemetery_Headstones.jpg

The religious believe that the soul can be immortal. A soul as it is described does not exist. There is a life force that is  driven by biological and physiological functions. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. The energy of the human body merely transfers back to the environment. Spirits and souls are not matter. When human beings die, their consciousness vanishes. The brain becomes inactive and with it it all the functions that make a person unique. Death is part of the natural process of biology. This is one thing that cannot be stopped. Immortality may not be a biological possibility. As far as it is known this could be beyond the powers of biomedical science and genetic engineering. Doing this would have unintended consequences. If  people lived forever healthcare systems could not cope, overpopulation would become an issue, and  the economy could not adjust. The fear of death is the reason that some cling to religion. Everyone fears  it. The idea that a worshiper can go to heaven or be granted a reward is comforting. The problem is that we only get one life and that is it. It should be lived to the fullest. Embrace uncertainty and learn to find purpose on your own terms. A person that prays for something to happen will never see change. A person must take action to take control of life.

       Religion should not be banned nor should praying. The only concern should be to question a belief system. It is very important to be critical of ones that you support. Religion is one of  the belief systems that thinks it should not be criticized. Praying at sporting events only cheapens the significance of a sacred ritual. The lugubrious part of this practice is that it used for wish fulfillment. The world of hyper consumerism and advertising has spread to religion. Like any other product it has become packaged in marketed to a specific demographic. Religion has become just another item to be sold. There are individuals who are lost, but don’t know they are. This explains why some join either extremist movements or follow a demagogue. Cults are able to attract people who do not have direction, seek purpose, or want some sense of community. While it is rare that individuals go to this level, there remains mental chains that cannot be broken. Praying may be a good coping mechanism for a time. Yet, it does not solve problems because no one is listening. The all powerful entity is simply not there. There have been many Gods that man made throughout history. Zeus, Ishtar, and Aphrodite are no longer recognized. Gods and mythology change overtime. This is the product of human imagination.    Athletes can pray as much as they want. Yet, it should be remembered that God or Gods did not have anything to do with their success.

Please Stop Praying At Sporting Events

Why Female Muscle Is The Sexiest Thing Ever

Everyone has their own  concept of beauty and attractiveness. The mistake is that some believe it is only one paradigm. The modern era is seeing women define beauty on their own terms. Whether body positivity  can be considered a feminist statement or a temporary fad has yet to be seen. Even before such a movement, women were changing their bodies in a way that was once thought impossible. Women in sports and fitness developed bodies that are physically powerful. Highly developed musculature may be a turn off to some people on a female body, but to others it is another form of beauty.  The image of female strength can either induce feelings of wonder, trepidation, lust or disdain. Although many are closed minded when seeing something different to a person who admires the female body in various forms can see the pulchritude of the female mesomorph. People who do not like the idea of a strong woman can even admit that their bodies  are  impressive.  The effort and dedication is not only a testament to physical strength, but strong mental drive. This is why female muscle is the sexiest thing ever. Their body becomes a living work of art with the aesthetics of traditional sculpture. The areas considered traditional beauty marks on women are enhanced. Power is sexy whether it is physical or mental. These are just a few explanations why female muscle can be attractive.

          Women with such strength and physical power are not that common. They are in many ways unique. They are women with strength greater than average men, but have their feminine allure. The strong woman breaks that traditional codes of gender roles, by defining them on their terms. This makes for a new and dynamic interpretation of feminine beauty. The gentle softness is contrast with a rock hard image of strong bodies.Combining these two elements show a body that is more voluptuous  that could be imagined on a female form. Being too thin does not give the body shape. additional curves enhance and exaggerate the female figure. Some women have the goal of obtaining an hour glass like shape. The muscular woman does too, but does it by other means. Developing the upper body to a high degree makes the waist look smaller. Other women acquire a larger waist, but it does not make them look block like. The female muscular body has a a magnificent fullness.

The combination of beauty and physical power is unique. This was once thought to be a male only quality, however women seem to have given it a feminine touch with this new paradigm. The attractive aspect is that they are challenging the norm. If every woman looked this way, it would not be so special. Body image conformity demands that men and women look a certain way to suit gender role norms. This is unrealistic, because individual can vary vastly in appearance. The error is that beauty is assumed to be one thing or entity. The beauty ideal  can be different depending on personal preference, culture, and time period. The muscular woman in many ways is a new revolutionary concept. Women have defined what is beautiful based on their terms. Women are not just presenting muscular physiques on bodybuilding stages, but other sports as well. Only the elite become the best champions in their sport. Women of different appearance can be more than just a curiosity; there is a sexual allure.

          It is no secret that when people describe what is attractive they mention parts of the body. This could include features of the face, chest, lower, and upper body. The lower body on women specifically the legs and posterior are of particular interest to certain men. The muscular woman’s body only enhances these areas to the highest degree. The gluteus maximus on most of the women are highly developed. Before the popular fitness craze, female athletes were already doing training of this body part.   Sometimes it may also make a person admire other areas of the female body that normally are not given focus. The upper body was thought to be an area that women should not train for aesthetics. Yet, doing so gives women wonderful back development.

Biceps can even be attractive to the lover of female muscle. Some men do not like it because they think it is a male quality to have strong arms. However, women have shown that their is a graceful charm that comes with it.Women flexing their arms can be both amusing and arousing.  Breasts to others can be considered a beauty mark. When women train to this degree, breasts may decrease in size. Weightlifting does not increase breast size, but can improve pectoral muscle strength. Women do not need large breasts to have a nice physique. Granted, every woman has a difference in breast size. A woman with pecs can still fill out her chest. People find different parts of the body attractive. The female body shape has an elegance and majestic pulchritude. The only way to describe this is to imagine looking at nature. The mountains, forests, or steppes induce feelings of admiration due to their beauty. The love of the muscular can be more then just simple lust; it can be admiration.

        Admiration for the physically strong woman comes from challenging the status quo , embracing confidence, and having  charisma. Women have to deal with double standards in relations to behavior and the activities they choose to do. The muscular woman has mastered the complete control of their bodies. They molded, sculpted, and trained their bodies to the highest degree. The responses that their bodies generate prove that this is a radical statement about what women are capable of. The 20th century and 21st century have seen women all around the globe become more powerful politically and socially. While challenges still remain, it seems that the women being subordinates is over. The women of the sports world are embracing strength and some are pushing themselves to their maximum.

Clothes cannot even hide such powerful looking bodies. So great their muscular development has become, they almost seem like living statues. The female body was at one time thought to be weak or lesser than that of men. The female body is capable of many astounding things. Giving birth is one that is easily recognized, which requires an more enduring strength. However, women can gain an impressive amount of physical prowess, which stuns people who have more traditional ideas about women’s bodies. Sometimes the status quo most be disrupted to allow for progress. The strong woman has muscled her way into what were thought to be manly pursuits and presenting a new paradigm. The new woman is not just independent or strong willed; she has the strength of body. There is something women gain psychologically from engaging in strength sport. Many say they have a greater self confidence. The pride comes from what they have accomplished and the challenges they overcame in the process. The new found confidence spreads to other areas of life. A woman with confidence  can be an attractive attribute  and women of this level have an unlimited supply. The muscular woman projects a charisma that supporters cannot ignore. Seeing them on stage or competing creates an even bigger magnetism. It may be perplexing to people who do understand the attraction to female muscle, but these are a few general reasons. The attraction or erotic nature does not come from appearance. The force and charm of personality are a factor.

     The fetish element cannot be forgotten. There is a misconception to view a sexual fetish as abnormal, but it is not. It is a form of sexual expression that people have. The sexual fetishes related to muscular women relate to stenolagnia and cratolagnia. This is arousal from the display of muscles or the demonstration of strength. The sexiest part about this is that women display their bodies with a great sense of pride. To the lover of female muscle there is nothing better than biceps, abs, glutes, or pecs. Mixed wrestling shows the full extent of  the muscular woman’s physical power.

Normally , men are stronger than the women they are with but in this situation roles are reversed. The muscular woman can be physically imposing. There is a gratification that some men get from having a woman over power them. It should be noted that woman also experience some form of satisfaction from physically dominating men. Here a man is in her compete control and unable to do anything about it. Sometimes its not just wrestling it extends to another activity known as muscle worship. This does not involve women physically dominating a man, rather a man admiring a woman’s body. Others may not appreciate the aesthetic, however the lover of female muscle can see the voluptuous pulchritude of an athletically developed female figure. These fetish related activities or practices link to the idea of power.

        Power is sexy. There are many types of power. Mental power can be the ability to use intellect to produce great works or have acumen in negotiation. The power to influence people is related to charisma.  Physical power meaning a person of great athletic prowess can be attractive for women. There remains some objections or aversion to such strong female bodies, however there are men who find them irresistible. A paradigm shift has occurred in which a strong and independent women are praised. Backlash occurs with any change, yet this development will not vanish. As there is a growing presence of women in the public sphere and multiple areas of society, it would make sense that another step would be taken. Mastery of  one’s physical self is the next step. The sports women of the modern era have feminized physical strength and power. It is not intimidating or unladylike its a new type of woman. The male attraction comes from seeing that confidence and power. Some men may want women as subordinates or submissive, but that is not suitable for a man of more open minded taste. A strong man and handle a strong woman.

       People question why some men like the physically strong woman. The answers are similar to the answers given for liking any other woman . A certain appearance, personality type, or other factor is at play. If seen from this perspective, the love of the muscular woman is not that unusual. Female muscle can be sexy. The lover of female muscle just appreciates different versions of beauty. Society has not caught up with this idea as whole. The obsession in regards to a single beauty standard is driven by a profit motive and a bias against women in particular. Women who look different or refuse to conform are ostracized. Supporters also get some negative criticism. This does not deter people from doing what they do or enjoying what they like.  What could have been a small niche could be larger than imagined. Surfing through the internet and social media platforms demonstrate there are people who like the idea of a strong woman. Few may admit their support publicly, yet the anonymity   of online use allows a person to express themselves more. The online traffic related to women’s sports or muscular women in particular is not just people who stumble upon it or view it out of curiosity.  The muscular woman is an embodiment of grace, power, and pulchritude.

Why Female Muscle Is The Sexiest Thing Ever

The Eroticism of Female Muscle

It is not just the sport itself we like. There is something memorizing about the image of the physically powerful woman. To some it can evoke feelings of disgust,fear, or hatred. Yet to others there is an erotic nature to the highly developed female form. There is no secret that there are men who love muscle women. They do not have to be bodybuilders specifically rather women who display physical prowess or some muscle. The specific fetish for this has been called cratolagnia and sthenolgania. Arousal form either displays of strength or muscle. Men who like muscle women are either seen as strange, sexually confused, or deviant. This is not the reality. These prejudices only represent what people do not understand or attempt to comprehend. No one would question a person’s attraction to women who are pretty in the conventional sense. Having discussions about such women seems normal. The fact is it is normal to admire and be arouse by various types of women. The misconception is that the lover of female muscle would reject women who are either slimmer or bigger. The truth is they are more open to different types and more appreciative of variety. Society does not like people who think differently or want to challenge the status quo. A woman who decides to take her athleticism to the maximum is doing a radical act. A man who shows affection and arousal is also challenging the status quo.

           To understand this fascination with the physically powerful female form, eroticism must be defined. Eroticism can be ” the attributes of sexual feelings.” The connotations can also extend to elements of desire, aesthetics, sensuality or romantic love in certain cases. Eroticism appears in literature, art,film,and other forms of entertainment. At times this term is both fluid and nebulous being defined by both the culture and time period. Psychology and biology are two fields that have extensively studied human sexual behavior. Sexology specifically devotes study to the cultural, social, and biological aspects of human sexual activity. The study of sexology has its roots as far back as the ancient and classical world. Sexual  manuals have existed for sexual practices, methods of contraception, and advice on sexual relationships. The Kama Sutra  was a notable Sanskrit text on eroticism and sexuality. Sexual mores change dramatically overtime. It is very ironic that sexology as a modern science did not emerge until the Victorian Age. Havelock Ellis was an English physician and social reformer, who pioneered sexology. He was an advocate of sexual liberation and the study of human sexual orientation at a time when these topics were taboo. Richard Von Krafft-Ebing  produced Psychopathia  Sexulais  in 1886 becoming one the first texts devoted to sexual pathology.

These images of women can induce sexual feelings. Some may find the more muscular women to their liking and other may like the thinner women. There could be a portion that like both. 

The problem with the work is that it reflected the homophobia at the time classifying being gay as a mental disorder. Homosexuality and bisexuality are just different sexual orientations. Asexuality seems to be more difficult to classify seeing as there is no sexual desire present. Eroticism could work in the same manner for people of different sexual orientations. Yet, when discussing desire or arousal there could be multiple possibilities among individuals .  The existence of various fetishes demonstrates this. Objects,actions, or people can induce erotic feelings. The reason people have such desires and thoughts can be related to biological evolution. According to Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution animals compete with one another  to produce offspring. Doing so ensures that genes and certain traits will continue. Favored traits would carry on through natural selection. Both sexes have desires and fantasies. Through out history female sexual desire was suppressed. Freedom only came with the sexual revolution and reliable contraception.

Relevant to the discussion of muscular women,  Magnus Hirschfeld coined terms that are applied to a particular fetish that lovers of female muscle have. Sthenolagnia  was coined by Hirschfeld another sexologist and physician who contributed much to the field. He described what are now known as  sexual fetishes. Cratolagnia and sthenolagnia  are not modern phenomenons. Nor are the kinks that people have. Eroticism’s denotation can be extended further to include an intense state of sexual arousal. There is a connection to sexual drive commonly referred to as libido   . Millions of years of human biological and social evolution have produced human sexual behavior.

    The female muscular form although a contradiction to traditionalist of gender roles creates a new paradigm of beauty. There are areas that are considered beauty marks on the female body. The chest and posterior tend to be popular areas of focus for the male gaze. The face has been important to both sexes. Some scientists even believe that beauty can be defined as symmetry within the face. While philosophers and scientists have attempted to define beauty people have done this on their own. It also varies from culture to culture. The muscular woman only exaggerates numerous aspects of the female physique. The lower body especially. Every man loves a woman with some well developed glutes.

It used to be that having a big butt women considered a bad thing. Now women are attempting to make them look bigger. The muscular woman was already pioneering this look before people became obsessed with “thicc.” Being too thin is not healthy and far from what many believe to be beautiful. The greatness of the female form is its voluptuous shape. This does not disappear with adding muscle. Women still retain higher body fat percentages and for female bodybuilders their off season provides a very nice look. A layer of fat comes over the muscle giving the image of softness combined with powerful hardness. People often get confused not realizing that women look different on stage. Limited body fat,tans, and high amounts of vascularity may seem unsightly to people who do not understand bodybuilding aesthetics. The point is to create and mold a physique like an artists molds clay.The phrase “her body is a work of art” is used by fans to approve of the image the athlete has presented. Merely showing the muscle is not enough. Posing routines become part of this erotic display. Women on stage posing in bikinis will generate arousal. The traditionalist argument that such activity and display lacks feminine charm seems to be misguided. It is the contrast between a  powerful body with smooth curves. Gender roles can flexible, so being a strong woman should not be a contradiction.

              There exists other forms of beauty and aesthetic presentation that few people can appreciate. Just like works of art ,there are various styles and techniques. The main parts of the muscular woman are highly exaggerated with the legs and chest. Women who build such physiques still want a similar hour glass figure with the difference in higher upper body development.

Making the upper body look larger and the lower body in proportion creates a look in which the waist appears smaller. The women are not building masculine bodies,they are adding shape to them. The female body ideal first began with a more voluptuous figure to a slimmer one in recent history. There is a return to a wider variety in what is considered the body beautiful. Living flesh becomes the marble of sculpture. Knowing this the admiration goes far beyond mere amorous fantasy. The body becomes an artistic representation through the building  of  a physique. Art is subjective, just like physique sports. The definitions can become unclear at times. People know what they like when they see it. Each muscle radiates power. Traditionally in art, the muscular male body was the image of masculine beauty. This was more so a style in ancient Greek and Roman civilization. Women in art were represented with bodies that were more soft. The female mesomorph does not fall into an androgynous mixture of the two rather it feminizes physical power.

        Power can be sexy. It can come in various forms such as mental and physical. These attributes have been promoted and praised in men,yet their is a realization that are great characteristics in women too.  There is a change in gender roles and sex politics in which women can have more freedom  and independence.  The phrase strong woman is used constantly,yet few really mean a literal representation. Bulging biceps, rippling abs, and impeccable glutes become a radical image of physical power never before seen on a female body.

For those who find such women attractive it goes far beyond looks. Seeing women perform  feats of strength becomes a major turn on. Lift and carry or  arm wrestling have become fetishes unto themselves. There is an amusement factor that captivates female muscle fans. Like watching a concert or stage performance there is a shock factor. It is not everyday their are women doing this. Maintaining such a body and the diligence it takes is incredible. The elite female athlete does not just have physical strength; there is a mental component present. The amount of drive, effort,and sheer willpower to attain such physicality would boggle the mind of an ordinary person. The mental strength that the women posses is a very admirable and attractive quality. It should be noted that women also have fetishes and desires. The common misconception is that women are only passive receivers of male passion. Women who participate in session wrestling primarily do it to support their sports endeavors. Yet,women who have other sources of income may do it any way. Women may get enjoyment out of dominating men physically. A large part of muscle worship is that the strong woman has her muscles admired by the man, Much of this has to do with power display. While it is acceptable that women can admire a powerful man the same does not seem to be true for women. The great thing is this taboo is discarded and reversed with a focus on feminine physical power. Maybe this is not a new phenomenon at all. The admiration for the powerful woman could be rooted in ancient myth and religion. Prior to the rise of monotheistic religion goddesses were recognized.

711
This is the Birth of Venus  by Sandro Botticelli. There is an erotic innuendo coming from this painting. 

       Mother goddesses appear in various cultures such as Nuwa in ancient China  or Papatuanuku in Maori tradition. Venus was not only the goddess of love she also was associated with sex,beauty, and fertility. There is a reason these subjects were placed together with this Roman goddess. The admiration and lust for muscular women may be going back to a worship of the mother goddess. It may be just a coincidence that female muscle fans may refer to their favorite athletes as goddesses, yet the connection seems to lead to such a conclusion. Monotheistic religion also brought about a more strict view about human sexuality and sexual behavior. Desire and lust was seen as sinful in these traditions and it ignored biological reality.  Eroticism has a biological component. These thoughts and urges are millions of years of encoded sociobiological behavior. Power is an attractive attribute,but it seems to becoming more acceptable for women to display such strength .

              The exploration into eroticism leaves many questions. What is beauty ? What is considered sexy? These questions do not have a one answer because so many people have their own ideas. They are influenced by the culture, society and media they watch. There is a difference between eroticism and pornography. At first this may be ambiguous or confusing due to the fact these terms are used interchangeably. Pornography specifically refers to the depiction of sexual acts or explicit display of the body for the purposes of sexual arousal. There may be overlap with the existence of erotic art or general erotica, but the words do not have the same denotation. There still has not been intense academic debate or discussion on these topics. Sexology is still has more research to produce to fully comprehend human sexual behavior. What can be known is why a person is attracted to certain types. Muscular women have a certain appeal. The parts of the female body are exaggerated to a greater degree. The posterior and legs have been areas of the female body that receive much attention. The image of the physically strong woman induces many feelings that can range from fascination to arousal. Liking the muscular woman is no different from liking any other women. What is different is that it is becoming a new paradigm of female beauty. While not embrace completely by the mainstream, it looks like there is a large portion of men who love it. The erotic nature has drawn in many men.

The Eroticism of Female Muscle

I Love Muscular Women And Why That’s A Great Thing

Valentine’s Day is that time of year in which we celebrate our most significant others. This celebration is named after Saint Valentine who was a Christian priest during the time of the Roman Empire. Persecution of the new religion was due to the fact there was a fear this group could threaten the power of government. There were many priests called Valentinus during this period, however scholars believe that he was martyred in 269 C.E. in relation to classical text. It was not until the Middle Ages did the holiday become associated with romance. Love can have multiple meanings. Sometimes it can be amorous, a sign of respect, or acknowledging a close bond with another person. There also is the possibility it can be all of these. Loving something that does not conform to the dominant cultural or social norms gets people branded as an outcast or eccentric. Saying you like muscular women can either cause reactions of ridicule, disgust, or repudiation. For this reason many male admirers of female muscle a either furtive or embarrassed about their love.This makes no sense to hide what you love. I love muscular women and there’s a good reason to. Even some supporters who say they just like women who are “toned” or “athletic” are really just saying they like muscular women. The only difference is magnitude. There are a portion of men who would reject women of great strength and they do not realize what they are missing.

         The muscular woman is a different type. Her uniqueness makes her something special. This is a breath of fresh air in a world that demands conformity in thought and behavior. To the philistine and closed minded people who are different need to be ostracized. The more thoughtful individual values and respects greatness of being unique. The world has become too npc. This neologism  stands for non-playable character in a video game. When applied to a person it means someone who is so conformist they are almost running on a computer program, rather than thinking for themselves. A portion of men base their preferences on either the culture they are raised in or mass media exposure.

 The only image of beauty was one paradigm, yet this shifts with time and transformation of culture. The uniqueness of the muscular woman is that there are few few instances in history in which women developed their bodies to this degree. The desire to go against the status quo make these women admirable. Especially since they do this in a male dominated field. There is often the claim that women just will not be interested in certain areas no matter how many barriers are lifted. That is not true,because women have become more active in sports, science, and politics. The muscular woman is unique which can be a very attractive quality. A person and grow if they expand their horizons. Learning from different people or interacting with someone outside your regular zone can enrich you. So fellas, why not try deviating from your standard type on dates ? Just think, you are taking out a woman that is above average. It may not be something you are used to, but it is a new experience.

         One reason to love muscular women is that they don’t care about other people’s negative opinions. This is something everyone should do. Faced with negativity both inside and outside their field they still persevere. The internet enables trolls through social media to attack them. Pusillanimous behavior such as that is only a sign of weakness and failure. Others may express an opinion in a civil manner, but really just are secretly supporting a desire to impose gender roles.

Gradually, there has been more acceptance of  legal and social equality. However, the freedom of choice do control a  their own bodies seems off limits to women in regards to appearance and reproductive rights. People have the problem of being prejudicial without knowing a person.This behavior gets magnified over the internet. The strong woman can easily brush this off and continue to be successful. Detractors and the closed minded can be vociferous, but this does not stop them. Not caring about what others think of you is an admirable quality. Peer pressure and societal expectations keep the creative, the innovators, and the free spirits suppressed. Only when these individuals go against conformity do the  reach their full potential.

            I love muscular women because they have made strength both artistic and beautiful. The sculpting of the female form becomes similar to a sculptor producing a work from clay or marble. Through training, nutrition, and attention to detail they produce a physique of symmetry, size, shape, and definition. The feminine version of strength becomes both graceful and dynamic. This aesthetic is new and the general public may not appreciate it as much as the artist or fan of feminine strength. Strength is no longer viewed as masculine, grunting, and brute image. Women’s entry in the fitness and bodybuilding sports  has brought about a wonderful charm.

Their bodies become living works of art. There normally is the criticism of muscular women being “too big” or “too much.” The reality is they are not “bulky” rather they have sculpted their physiques to a degree which makes them appear bigger than they are. This is not some imitation of the male physique, rather it is a strong and elegant one. The general public does not appreciate this image of woman. Figure studies and sculpture are major parts of art. What the muscle woman does on stage is like performance art, with the body acting as the work. There should be at least a level of respect for the dedication and focus required to attain such fitness. Mental strength also is essential part of this task.

       The more obvious reason I love muscular women that must men can understand, is that look. The voluptuous figure seems to be coming back in vogue. The muscular woman embodies this to the greatest degree. Some fellows say that a woman is thicc, but have not seen such a thing in its magnificent glory.

The muscle only accentuates the female figure. Shape on a female body is more appealing compared to extremely thin body that has been promoted in media for so long. There are men who are threatened by the sight of large arms on a woman. Oddly, large arms on a woman can be attractive. The sculpted arm with shape enhances the chest.  Having a certain type does not mean one should reject others. A thin body image should not be  exchanged for a fit one. Female muscle lovers embrace numerous body types on women. This should not be strange considering they love on that is not accepted b the mainstream. Embracing a muscle woman is a great thing. She can expand your horizons and you get exposure to someone different. Sometimes it is a positive thing to go outside your comfort zone.  Dating one of these women could be a fun experience. Who knows, if it really goes well a long term relationship could emerge. If you strike some good luck maybe marriage. This love of the muscular woman goes beyond mere attraction. They are make an important statement. It is a feminist message even though many would not consider themselves part of the movement or ideology. A woman can be strong, beautiful,  and have power.
