Before I begin, let me start off by saying that I am a fan of muscular women.  Don't know or remember when that started, but I am.  If you already know that, then forget what I said.

Anyway, here's a little piece called: "Muscle Women: Where's the love?"

Why don't more people love muscle women?  What is it about not having a stick-figuresque body that drives people away?  Muscles can be sexy too.  If muscular men can attract women, why not vice versa?  I'm going to explore the possible reasons for people not wanting to have anything to do with muscular women.

1. Muscle women want to make men their sex slaves and/or kill them.

Sure, some of them maybe...and maybe there are some S&M people who like that kinda stuff.  But not ALL of them.  I bet some guys on the internet saw some pics from Kinsyo(a muscle artist from Japan) or read some web fiction about muscle women who like to kill men.  That may be where this conclusion came from.  But to set the record straight, if a muscle woman kills a guy on purpose during sex in the REAL world, that would be murder, punishable by death or life in prison.  Even if that's a fantasy for some, that's one fantasy I don't wanna be in.  None for me, thanks. I'm driving.  I hate when gore is associated with muscle women. I'm sure many other people agree with me too. Although...what with all the abusive relationships women die from, it could be women's way of getting revenge.  COULD BE, not IS.

2. If any man loves muscle women, they're "that way"...GAY, OK?!?! I said the word "gay".  Now I feel dirty.

I have no idea where this came from. Seriously.  Apparently some people think muscle women look like men with breasts. What the Firetruck? They also think that since they have muscles, they ARE men with breasts.  (Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....)  Men are also the stereotypically aggressive sex and women are supposed to be submissive. Somehow, people think if women gain ANY muscle mass, they'll automatically become aggressive. This is linked to the first reason why people don't like muscle women, but it's still close-minded...Like I said, I don't understand where that comes from.  So you can take what I said with a grain of salt or whatever.

3. Apparently if they're not Kate Moss, Paris Hilton, or any other supermodelish superstar like Jessica Simpson, they're not beautiful.

COMPLETE UTTER B.S.! Anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders are not beautiful. The media is full of lies on that one. In fact, people actually DIED from that crap.  In fact, Karen Carpenter of the musical group The Carpenters died from Anorexia.  Now with muscle women, you wouldn't have this kinda problem.  At least they don't exercise until they drop dead.  At least not the non-obsessive ones. So, blame the media.

On a final note, not all muscle women take steroids.  If they were caught, they'd be disqualified from FBB competitions or even arrested. Plus steroids would ruin your life.  It almost ruined former wrestler Joanie Laurer's life.  Joanie Laurer, for those people who are not in the know, was also known as Chyna in the WWF/WWE.  Plus steroids kill people.

I just don't want any more stereotypes of muscle women to spread around. I want muscle women and regular men to coexist peacefully.  But you know that'll never happen, so at least there's DA and and our imaginations.

I just came across this piece--well done! I've been thinking about these issues working on my comic which features and "ordinary woman" who gets big and muscley and super strong--but NOT aggressive. The character will face relationship issues with her boyfriend, her body, society... Anyway, I'm really glad to find this--thanks!

"I want muscle women and regular men to coexist peacefully."

Did anyone else think of George Bush reading that?

Women and bodybuilder level of muscles are taboo in society. Can't figure out why myself. I think part of the problem is the women who choose to use steroids in some form or fashion. They lose their breasts as a natural consequence (which leads to breast implants), not to mention their voices deepen, their faces lose feminine qualities, etc. I for one don't much care for those types, but I'm not saying I hate them either. Its your body, do whatever you want with it. Natural bodybuilders are another thing. They represent to me the epitome of a woman's physique, like Johanna Dejager for example. Fetish's of peoples really irritate me, such as a woman beating up some dude. To think that women with muscles are super strong is ridiculous. They don't go on power trips and kill or beat up men. Now, its fun to make up things in stories, like I write. No harm in that. We all have wild imaginations, so why not have fun? :) A women with natural muscle has shown dedication, and is living a healthy lifestyle. If God gave women muscles, why not develop them? If its wrong, then why do they have them?

As for point 1, its not just some Japanese anime artist. Look at fellow Deviant artists, [link] is an example.

As for Ephedra killing 150 people, this number is BS. GOOGLE for "how ephedra got banned" for the true story (hint: pharma companies and politicians). The Chinese have been using it since before our ancestors could count to 5...

I have another one for the list. Muscle is associated with strength (any kind of strength, physical or otherwise), and in our society, women are not supposed to be strong (in any way). They're just supposed to be utterly helpless and dependent on men for everything. But does anyone think that's a turn-on?
olafredland Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2007

that is all.

well...maybe not. i agree. because of the fact that society has certain standards, everything has evolved (or de-evolved) into a set of stereo-types. there is nothing that cannot be thrown into some shitty category. however, many are more accepted, almost the the point of "necessity". this, of course, leads to all others being seen as bad, or failure.

another point - yeah im attracted to female muscle and such, but the fact is no one gives them enough respect for their dedication. yeah, steroids is cheating, but that aside, its a bitch and a half to get the muscularity most of them have, and even tougher for some women because they dont get free muscle mass with puberty, while males do. my fiance is trying to build some muscle right now, and shes having somemajor troubles on a few areas because she doesnt have much muscle there to begin with. done.

Ok i agree 100% with you but the steroid part is unfortunately true. You may like it or not but getting muscles like Gina davis has (even tho shes beautiful) is associated with using some kind of muscle boosters, not neccessarily anabolics ( there are different kinds of steroids ). Those women who still are facially feminine simply know how to use them, and do it responsibly. I'm not saying that each fbb uses steroids, ofcourse there are outstanding fbb's like Johanna Dejager which ARE natural, but look at johanna thats abou as far as female body will go naturally. Gina Davis is also one of the most beautiful fbbs and shes huge (I love her, but lets be honest), maybe im wrong but i think she helped herself alittle with some chems. When you look at her face you can see that its not as smooth as Johannas face, there simply are slight signs that indicate use of some kind of booster. Now women that were really natural were on stage in 80's those were TRULY natural bodybuilders. Go see Rachel McLish, Cory Everson, Compare their size and muscle fullness to lets say Collete Nelson, or Yaxeni Oriqueen. Dont get me wrong im not bashing or hating or saying anything negative. Its just lets face it thats how it is. I love muscular women, they are my life. I just regret that women cant build huge muscles (at least very rarely) naturally having angelique face. And steroids are banned only in Natural Bodybuilding contests, only there competitors are tested. Even if they use steroids i love them lol :P
