>lifting for girls
it's like she doesn't know the majority of guys lift for scooby
Only reason she says being big isn't "neccessary" is cause she can't get herself a guy like that. Then she mentions DiCaprio and says he might be the most wanted man in the world. Well guess what? Worldwide recognized best of the best actor in his 40s. Doesn't he have a wife or something? Anyway, most dudes (admit it) started lifting because of female attraction. But (for me) the view shifted very quickly. It went to seeing how strong, aesthetic I can get. Not get some basic salty bitch like the author. Fuck off, the world doesn't revolve around you and you not being able to get a hot guy. In this article she just proves HOW INSECURE she is herself.
>mentioning dadbod in 2015
>ugly, fat twat who'll never get girls like "kevin" projects her insecurities onto a "news" "website" to bring other men down
>the majority of girls will be able to see the desperation radiating off of him from a mile away
kek stay mad fatty
>5/10 with makeup
>thinks she's qualified to make these assumptions that we lift for females
kek, sure. the first ~4 months we start lifting to look better for girls, but after that we start to love going to the gym and seeing progress.
it becomes a game for most of us after awhile... lifting/fitness in general is fun
>yfw this is the author
TOP KEK LADS
>lifting for girls
>any fucking year
I'm doing it for my own self-improvement. Fuck Zyzz-clones and instagrams whores though. Those people need to die out.
Just terrible. Would throw in a bin. Do you think she has a concave ass? She looks a bit like the evil Queen from snow white when she turned into a hag. That dress makes her look even more like an ugly pencil.
I want to punt her in the cunt. I bet it's really flat and lifeless like a wafer thin slice of ham and smells like when you open the ham packet and all the stink is released.
>chasing the perfect six pack
Obviously never seen Leo pre 2000. Ex girlfriend had a crush on him and had hos pictures plastered all over her bedroom. His stomach looked like it belonged to Bruce Lee (rest of him was twiglet mode)
She must of made this just to get views from pissed of weightlifters or she is retarded.
So from my research only about 13 percent of Americans lift weights, but 68.8 percent of Americans are overweight or obese. And she says that weightlifters are clones?
She says there is a unsung allure about guys that dont lift because "He eats a large pizza with no qualms, and gets pissed on weekends without worrying about the calories. He has a life beyond the world of getting ripped. He has substance."So somehow getting fucked up and eating shitty food is having substance...
She says weightlifters are comparable to a basic bitch? How is someone who puts in handwork and dedication everyday comparable to a basic bitch, but a dude who sits on the couch eating pizza and getting fucked up on the weekend isn't? Thats litterally what basic bitches do
>Friedman, Friedmann, and Freedman are surnames of German origin, and from the 17th century were also adopted by Ashkenazi Jews.
/pol/ is always right.
sure she's a stupid fucking cunt with sour grapes
But she's got a point, if you're an autist without gains, you're gonna be an autist with gains. And for the love of God don't center your whole personality around being fit and lifting unless you're a professional
You remember that pretty shy girl in 7th form. Now even she's become a feminist blog writer venting her frustrations at the world. With a glass of wine surgically attached to one hand and a keyboard in the other, she taps away every night, not realizing guys don't look for a girl with a sour attitude towards anyone she doesn't like. Guys like a girl that doesn't go batshit over an opinion not affecting her life.
Every time some bitch says "DiCaprio" as an example of how much they love the dadbod (conveniently leaving out the fact that he's a fucking handsome movie star millionaire) you can bet your bottom fucking dollar that given the choice between Leo and Channing Tatum or Chris Hemsworth or even Huge Jackedman they'd pick a ripped one 9 times out of 10
>Reading the comments and seeing the usernames
I always forget that people who browse /fit/ exist in real life
>>She says weightlifters are comparable to a basic bitch?
I'll give her this. if she's basing it on the instagram fit bros who whore themselves out like girls.
literally just browse mike o hearn's instagram page
Feminist here. That article is deeply antifeminist. Body shaming is a BIG no-no. Especially when someone already feels good about how they look, which "Kevin" clearly does if he's posting photos of himself on social media. If this author does write about "feminist" topics, she's the Tumblr sort who try to disguise their shitty, catty behavior by co-opting social justice lingo.
I don't know about you brahs but shit like this really hits me hard
I grew up bullied and ostracised by both boys and girls, and still completely treated as invisible by women, and now that I am trying to improve my situation there is a woman shitting all over me for it
>she can't get herself a guy like that
Correct. If you google her name, you get to her LinkedIn which has her pic. She's fat, has a bad face AND a bad nose. She also might be losing hair, idk.
I hope those shallow cunts be mirin, because they aren't getting any. Just laugh them off and their power over you becomes trivial, and they know it. They base their entire lives on getting attention from other people, the obvious solution is to tell them to fuck off and don't look back.
Not that anon but allow me to elaborate.
When someone claims they are a feminist they are hiding behind an antiquated phrase used as a commonplace simile for equality in the 20s. Feminism has no purpose or place in a modern first world country, and anyone who identifies as a feminist has at their very core admitted to being retarded due to the very definition of feminism, which is to say equality FOR WOMEN.
In this day and age if you want equality, it's a two way street. So naturally just like we would with the westboro baptist church, or the KKK, or the black panthers even, a feminist's views are on par with such groups. The only difference is that a feminist hides behind the lie that they are doing it for the good of everyone.
That's what a lot of feminists claim, a lot of places are divided on the definition.
A lot of them define it as for everyone, and a lot of them define it as equality for women. Some even give a sort of halfway definition of being the ability for women to have the same rights as men.
Ask yourself this, what percentage of modern feminists actually want equality for both sexes? Why would it be called FEMinism if it was for both females and males?.
Last time I checked modern feminists were mostly comprised of spoiled cunts who want things without needing to work for them. Show me a feminist who genuinely wants equality for men as much as they do for women, and I will give you the names of 3 who don't.
Basically she's upset because she is gradually becoming fatter and needs to find some reason, some justification as to why she doesn't need to work toward her own appearance.
But more than likely it's just bait for site traffic, either way it's pretty pathetic
Don't worry familia, I have adblock and I'm behind 7 proxies.
>Ask yourself this, what percentage of modern feminists actually want equality for both sexes?
Damn near all the ones I know IRL
>Why would it be called FEMinism if it was for both females and males?.
I answered that already, idiot
>Feminist is just the most commonly accepted term, so that's what I use
>Last time I checked modern feminists were mostly comprised of spoiled cunts who want things without needing to work for them. Show me a feminist who genuinely wants equality for men as much as they do for women, and I will give you the names of 3 who don't.
So the loudest, craziest, fringe of a group is what defines it. Got it.
Next time, maybe you should try actually learning something about feminism instead of seeing Tumblr screenshots here and deciding you know everything there is to know on the subject?
>name calling: check
>insinuate someone is stupid: check
>confrontational post: check
>make no attempt to address any points: check
Yeah you're definitely a feminist all right. Thankfully your ideology is slowly dying.
This is actually a good point but sadly everyone here will completely ignore it because you identified as a feminist. You wouldn't go on Reddit and say you're an MRA, would ya?
Her article has nothing to indicate feminism at all, sometimes I think guys on 4chan just see a woman saying or writing something they don't like, and instantly start calling the feminazi card.
I'm gonna play devil's advocate for a second here, how is this bitch assuming that all lifters do it for women any different than /fit/ assuming all women wear makeup just for them? Or yoga pants? In fact, dudes here will use the exact same argument against it. "Oh women who wear makeup are all so generic and shallow, they only care about vanity, they have no personality, they're trying way too hard i'd rather have a natural girl who just wakes up in the morning and doesnt even brush her teeth and looks great!". It's like the same philosophy.
>Because I know feminists IRL who do
Yes, because we all know that as long as you know a guy who isn't _____ that makes it true, ironic that you later tell me that I should look for examples outside of what you suggest is my sphere of contacts.
Who is to say your friends aren't on the fringe? Were there no Nazis that genuinely despised Hitler? Of course there were. What you're doing is claiming that the group supports equality when in fact the part you claim are fringe have taken over a majority of modern feminism.
Even if you're right, assuming that all of the tumblr feminists, the youtube activist feminists, feminist frequency, and the list goes on. Assuming that they are all fringe and not real feminists, they are certainly damn near the only ones with a voice. For such a fringe idea they sure do have a large sphere of influence
I lift because I used to be a fatass and hated my soft flabby body. Now I love how my body looks and feels so I strive to improve it and grow it even more. I also lift because it means I get to eat more and I make sure I put decent food into my body. I broke my arm 9 months ago and took a few months off lifting to recover. I found my diet went to shit as I had no motivation to keep my diet on point.
Then call yourself a humanist
Feminism is a red flag word that implies you're a mentally ill cunt
This isn't the 60s, and the wage gap is a lie, don't call yourself a feminist anymore.
>For such a fringe idea they sure do have a large sphere of influence
because it's no different than shitty mainstream music or supplement companies scamming folks to lose weight with fat burners
I'd think somebody on 4chan wouldn't be so stupid to fall for mainstream media confusion
Why does the accepted, established name of the entire movement have to change just because the word triggers you? Feminism was called feminism due to the fact that women were the ones who were objectively, legally lacking rights compared to men. Even if that's not true now, what's the purpose of changing the name of a movement that has existed for so long? If you look past your frothing feminist hating buttblast, you'll realize why that's a fucking retarded argument.
Why do they call it a chairman if it's supposed to be a position that both men and women can have??? Or fisherman? They should just change the common usage of words to make sure it's 100% egalitarian, which is of course, the master race euphoric totally mentally stable equality movement.
>get jacked literally let me lose my virginity, develop confidence, and ride that to regular hook ups
and no blog post will ever change that
"man" has always been the historic, generic term for humans in general
"feminism" implies pro-female as opposed to pro-equality, there is something in a name
notice they care more about female circumcision in some random shithole in Africa than the 2.5 million boys here in the United States who have the top of their dicks cut off routinely
the whole "feminism is about equality" thing is a lie and a ploy
It doesn't matter what words you hide behind, the actions of the group dictate the ulterior motives.
If I get my 80g of protein from beef and claim that i'm doing it for the betterment of humanity, but i'm still vegan, does that make me a vegan?
Would that make you fringe? What if over 60% of the vegan population for whatever reason decided to follow that ideal, why wouldn't you change the definition?
I tell you what, i'm not even that anon but if you can by some miracle change the mindset of the "fringe" feminists that are taking over your movement to support the idea of equality for both sexes (which they clearly don't if you have ever looked at anything modern day feminism has done) then I'll reconsider my position. But to me, in the here and now you look just like a Christian who doesn't actually believe in god but still goes to church because their family still goes.
>shut up, I know what's best for you
No, I know what's best for me, you only represent yourself. Fucking groupthink zombies.
"Feminism" is a public admission of mental illness. It's no coincidence that the most outspoken "feminists" are always proud to announce they are also bioplar, depressed, traumatized or even borderline / schizo.
But I addressed nearly all your points. As for the rest, this is 4chan. Grow a thicker skin or leave. I'm sorry I triggered you by using a word you don't like, but you people are the ones who go on and on about how it's all just words and being offended doesn't automatically make you right.
I knew it was going to happen. Being provocative is fun sometimes, and I was hoping maybe it would make some of them think. I mean, obviously it won't, but it's nice to dream.
Anyway, bored now. You can go back to jerking each other raw while pretending this site isn't a gigantic hugbox
Does putting on makeup burn calories? Does putting on makeup increase your physical ability? Does putting on makeup qualify as a valid placeholder for the physical activity humans used to get regularly in pre-industrial societies that kept them healthy? Is makeup part of your actual physical, biological being?
No, it isn't. It's painting a big fat lie on your face so that men will like you more. Try again.
Except the "wo" and the "fe" serve to distinguish these terms from the parts you capitalized. I wrongly capitalized only the FEM, it's actually FEMIN that is about women and the only other component of the word is ISM.
Actually think before you post.
Oh yeah, they love bragging about having OCD, like it's quirky and lovable. No, outside of movies it's not. Real people with OCD are annoying.
The irony here being I explained why calling yourself a feminist makes no sense and it was completely ignored by said feminist.
Any doubts I had that the feminists that genuinely want equality existed is now gone
I know I burned her so hard she'd be Katie Piper mode if she heard it.
>getting mad at the tab
come on lads, she's wrong, but it's a student news site akin to buzzfeed and the whole point of it is for students to make fun of other students at their uni. it's open about it's entire goal being to bait people
So getting pissed shows more character than lifting hahaha?!
She's kinda right with the try-hards, but wtf nothing wrong with lifting. Just because she's not improving herself, that's not a sign of confidence haha
>Theres an unsung allure about a guy who doesn’t succumb to a world of protein and muscles – a guy who says no to a life in the gym, and embraces his natural frame, be it skinny, or be it a dad bod
>embraces his natural frame, be in skinny, or be it dad bod
She also talks about how Leonardo DiCrappio is the "perfect man" for some other shallow reason/s.
She's retarded and denying her primal urges. Women want a good looking man like men want good looking women. Just the way it is.
>an obnoxious expression of sexual value
>hate the idea of being caught admiring
Pick one. I'm not ashamed to stare at sluts, even women stare at sluts.
>slut apologist pretending cake makeup and slutty clothes are not red flags regarding character
Sure, most men would smash but noone would wife. The "hate" is about acknowledging the danger of being cucked and/or left alone to raise children while the slut moves on to party elsewhere. It's K-selected males warning each other about sluts gonna slut. Also, most slut shaming comes from women, warning each other about the dangers of tolerating sluts in their vicinity. Cheaply mass produced people like you wouldn't understand.
the point is people DO check these sluts and guys who take photos w/ perfect lighting & a post gym pump as their tinder.
but they wont ever admit it, because it reflects negatively on you due to society's perception.
if the guy in the OPs article was wearing a fitted T-shirt showing off his muscles, outside, smiling, with friends, she'd probably have an entirely different opinion.
but it's too overt and obnoxious for most people.
women especially, because her peers are going to be like
> you fell for THAT?
>the point is people DO check
Of course people look at things that are enjoyable to look at. Who ever denied this?
>due to society's perception
This is the kind of vague babble SJWs use. What specific group of people perceives overt displays of attractiveness negatively and why? Last I checked models, male or female, aren't a despised profession. Showing off isn't frowned upon in plenty of contexts. It's okay to show off gains at the beach for instance.
>her peers are going to be like
>you fell for THAT?
>fell, as in romantic love
Because showing off his muscles while not near water, or running a marathon says
>I'm hot, let's fuck
>I have talent and discipline, consider me for a steady relationship
If she and her peers are all sluts she will get cheered on for fucking him. Meanwhile, in higher social circles people will look down on her or try to warn her because they will automatically assume that she is looking for a relationship, and this guy is not a good candidate. It's a difference in attitudes between K-selects and r-selects. Your typical r-select thinks any sex is good, the most important thing in life is "getting laid" and also more generally "having fun". More K-selected people think of sex as a double-edged sword with many risks, one such risk being for women to let some random loser pump and dump them, because it lowers her value in the eyes of genuine potential partners.
you're not even addressing what I said any more.
read this again to solidify my point: >>35949445
you're diverging off on some tangent about "K-select & R-select".
no longer going to reply.
have a good one.
To feel good. When you push your body hard and gain progress. Rush of endorphin, energy and confidence just bursts through you the entire day, making you feel awesome. I was severely depressed before lifting, and now I am more energetic and happy than ever. With the confidence, hooking up with chicks is also easier, which is a nice bonus.
>Of course, they’re imaging that with a bod like the hulk the girls will come running, they’ll find themselves a winter bae and they’ll finally be recognised as the ultimate lads that they are. What they don’t realise is that they’ll actually just become really fucking tragic.
How do I enter Ultimate Lad Mode?
i lost out on the girl of my dreams to a jacked guy. i still havent gotten over it. i'm legitimately heartbroken.
sounds stupid, but one day i will be that guy. this ordeal has been my motivation.
I quite literally would not sleep with her unless I was blackout drunk lol
>mfw self proclaimed feminist posted on Twitter how she wanted a great guy and ending up getting double teamed by me and my buddy
It's 2016 why does anyone still listen to women when they state what they want in a guy
She doesn't have a point. How attractive you are has little to do with your social skills and everything to do with your social worth. Do you have a well paying job? Do you have a nice car? Do you dress well? Are you in shape? Are you someone who is worth something in your community?
Being ripped isn't everything, but it certainly is something. Honestly if you're ripped make good money have a nice car dress well but are socially autistic women won't even notice.
This girl is at my university, after a few articles like this of her went online, the fem society at our uni when and bullied the shit out of her- she kept getting messages saying shit like she was a detriment to her gender and that she should kill herself for encouraging girls to workout and shit. Feminists are always gonna fucking bully healthily people men or women
Just checked, her private account is deleted and her Facebook fitness page has private messaging turned off -but is still online- apparently a friend is running her page on her behalf.
I can never understand why feminists can bully other women in the name of 'female liberation'
>While Kevin may now be able to pull on nights out, wear dangerously low v-neck vests and generally act like he’s walked off the set of Geordie Shore, everybody that knows him will see that his new found bravado is really just one big facade.
>While Kevin may now be able to pull on nights out
This is just cringeworthy
>Even though you still fuck tons of girls and I'd fuck you, I know you're insecure and while I would spend my best years begging to suck your balls dry, I'll never want you when I'm old and ugly
This cognitive dissonance here is just ridiculous.
The tab is divided up by different unis around the UK and basically exists entirely for clickbait articles, it's looked down upon by pretty much everyone but people follow it for the occasional kek
