Whatever, I'm just sick of the constant comments by insecure douches (you may or may not be included in that group, I don't know any of you that well) that feel the need to somehow undermine a woman's clearly hard fought accomplishments by stating her appearance doesn't make you get wood. I just don't get why you can't appreciate someone's amazing performances, be positive and move on.

Maybe I'm sensitive to this because I'm married 15 years and deeply in love with a woman nearing 40 that carries a lot more muscle than the average woman, and kicks some serious ass in the gym. She knows I'm her biggest fan, and I love the way she looks. Our love life couldn't be better. But I also have to deal with her fragile emotional state when her mom thinks it might be "too much", or the skinnyfat spin class, pilates cardio whore next door comments all the time how she doesn't lift heavy weights because she doesn't want to look like Ms. Olympia. Like she ever could have the chemistry or mental toughness to do it.

It bothers me when Laura Phelps-Sweatt breaks a freaking world record and the first thing idiots comment on is her "manliness". Or when the U.S. finally has a decent weightlifting Olympian who works her ass off, qualifies, then then lifts in London with a wrist that needs surgery, puts up really solid numbers, also happens to be charming and pretty hysterical and the only thing people can think of about her is that she's really big.

Free country and all that, you have the right to say anything you want. But then I also have the right to call you out for being an ass. I'm not saying you shouldn't be allowed to say anything you want, I'm saying why do you want to?
