Guys guys guys … slow down a bit! Obviously not all articles will be to your liking. But for one I liked the article, mostly because I can relate to what’s in it (some parts at least) and I believe that we can all do to some extent.
I understand why this article was received negatively by some of you. However it sure was thought provoking and I’m sure that many actually found it to be quite good, or at least an interesting read.
The problem with what I call “subjective” articles, i.e. articles not about training methods, diets or supplements/drugs but rather about life, sex and opinions, is that what is said can be downright offensive to some while being quite bening for others. Hey, even TC and Chris S who wrote several editorials received their fair share of criticism, but the fact remain that the goal of an editorial piece is to stirr passions, and start some debates. Obviously you won’t get the same thing as you would with a training article (lucky me, nobody ripped appart my “Rapid fire” article!) but if you read it with an opened mind, you might actually enjoy it!
One last comment, writing an article is very hard. Especially when you have to write for a special audience with preferences and expectations. At first I thought that this writing thing would be a breeze. But most of you don’t know that I had about 7 articles rejected by TC before he actually published one! So if you think you can do better, why not put your head on the block and submit something … after all, what would a T-man do? Whine and criticize or act?
