However, that stereotype is often used to describe anyone who is into bodybuilding...as if building yourself up and making yourself stonger means you are gay. I guarantee some guys use that as an excuse to not train regularly. I'm not gay, but I don't think this thread should be degraded because of that one generalization. I do think it is a good idea to make it clear that gay does NOT go hand in hand with being physically fit, even though some of them may admire those who are sexually.
I think part of that perception is because the majority of society is "homophobic". I have no doubt that there are many who think simply looking at a male bodybuilder as inspiration leads to "gayness". What is funny is how women can hug and kiss each other, go into changing rooms together and give each other open compliments without it being seen as "gay". That means that society as a whole has an image problem. Meanwhile, it begs that every guy become more feminine in actions and character.
Perhaps this thread could turn into something quite useful in destroying these perceptions held by the majority...as perception often equals reality until challenged.
