Women Bodybuilders And All They Sacrifice….
After going to a local BB’er Competition and watching the women compete at such a high level and even show definition that was comparable to the men ( just not the size ). There I sat as several very ripped , very defined women crossed the stage and showed no disparity from the men that walked a half hour earlier.
So the question I had at the end of the day was ” Why was the women’s prize so much less than the men’s. It was 50 % less, really? Did they work 50 % less or spend 50 % less time in the gym?
Some of my answers were sitting next to me in the form of a beautiful yet muscular lady sitting next to me. A former woman bodybuilder was sitting next to me, and I chatted with her for a while and then , with caution I explained who I am. She said she actually reads my blog and had quite a few questions for me. So I passed on to her my lack of understanding to her, with a look of hatred , she went on a ten minute rant that could have lasted an hour longer if I had allowed it.
She said ” The men get prep areas , while the women get a hallway with only a sheet stopping the view from continuing down to those that walk by. The money , respect ,and endorsement deals are all less than those of men performers.
The idea is that men bring in bigger crowds and money.
I look at it from a stand point of risks, women seem to take more to receive less.
The list of side effects are much larger for a woman , which include overall manliness.
Now while the lady next to me was a few years out from being on stage , you could still see a few attributes that remained.
She was very pretty just the same , and though her physique was much firmer than mine, I still , if single , would try my hardest.
I must say this seems unjust and the powers that be must do something, or risk a future of generations of resentful women bb’ers .
