I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿ARE YOU WORKING FOR YOURSELF OR...?





We all work out for different reasons. Some of us for health, some
of us for beauty and some of us for the wrong reasons. There’s no doubt that we
are a media influenced society. Everything from where we live, the words we
speak, what we buy and the way we dress comes from some form of media. One
aspect of our lives that media heavily influences is beauty, and in a big way.








The
“standard” of beauty we are to live by shows up in our television shows, music
videos, and movies, and judging by what’s shown on all these mediums, men more
specifically gay men have a very
specific standard.


They love ‘em with a nice
chest, huge biceps, tight abs and a nice bubble butt, among other things.







Many of us spend hours working out our legs, butts, and abs in an
effort to meet what we think will make us desirable to men. We all want to look
attractive to our potential mates, so, yes, we do make adjustments to our style
of dress, habits, etc., but when it comes to our health, it is wrong to workout
with the sole purpose of reaching some limiting, gay male ideal of beauty.




Not only is working out for
this purpose not a good idea, but you’re harming your mind and spirit as well.
You shouldn’t have to make yourself look good just for men to want you. If the
body you have isn’t appealing to someone, guess what? Their loss! One man’s
trash is another man’s treasure, and they will see your beauty and love it as
is. Work out for you, for what you think is healthy or beautiful, not so you
can measure up and be someone’s dream man.
