    Am I the only one that doesn't agree with female bodybuilding?

    Is there really something attractive about a woman having more abs and rippling muscles than most men? I am so confused as to how that is okay. Maybe I'm the only one thinking that way. Seriously; I am going to have to disagree with the idea of female body builders thinking they look good. It's one thing to be in good shape, but there's got to be a point where enough is enough.

    Well, I suppose that no one needs to ask your permission. If you've ever been to Europe, you'll have notice how nicely the men take care of themselves and work to make themselves attractive. But the men in the States have never really asked if that was OK with us women. Frankly, we really don't find beer bellies, frumpy clothes, and lots football in on TV. But no one needs to ask our permission for that. So, I suppose female athletes don't need your permission either.

      Women can do whatever they want. I'm merely stating an opinion and saying that theres got to be a line drawn or something. We can live however we want and if you feel that bodybuilding is the way to go then go for it. You want see me cheering for it.

    I do agree with you.  I cannot see what is attractive or feminine about a female showing her abs and rippling her muscles.  I think it is simply that some women are so competitive that they feel they have to do everything that a man does!!!    Male and Female were made to compliment each other not to be in competition with each other.

      It's just sad to see beautiful women ruin their bodies by packing on muscles to cover up their natural state. It's just not necessary, and frankly, unattractive. I'm sorry.

    If that's what floats their boat, good on'em... that "look" does nothin' for me though.

    In a way, it is good for woman to keep fit but to show off those muscles will not be a good sight. I believe that they should maintain a good lean figure instead.

    i agree with you kind of. im sure you would agree that they have that right and if they like it, then great. i dont like the way it looks either though. maybe its my ego, but i couldnt date a women i knew could toss me around like a rag doll. i have also heard women say they dont like the way professional men bodybuilders look either. there does seem to be an overboard when it comes to fitness.

      Yep, I totally agree.  I find men who are over the top with it gross also.  Of course it's anyone's personal decision, but healthy and fit is great - excessiveness - not natural and not attractive imo.

    If they are not "pumped up",  female body builders are just women in great shape. They have great muscle tone with little fat. I think more women should try to attain this. A friend, who is a personal trainer/body builder, is in great shape. You would never know she was a body builder until she starts "pumping".
    I would rather see a women in shape, than a fat or obese woman who cares nothing for themselves.

    I too disagree  definitely enough is enough woman should be more feminine than trying to prove their level to muscular men.

    woman is naturally born as a female hormones, beauty, etc. Changing the nature into masculine is something I couldn't accept, looks gross , unnatural and more like not transexual gender.

    There's a difference between fit and strong - and then excessive to the point of losing their curves and such.  Of course anyone can do what they please, but I think personally anyone who overdoes fitness gives the vibe of "compensating" somehow - like they have to prove something.  Masculine or feminine there can be too much of a good thing.

      I couldn't agree more. I know a friend of a friend whose hubby doesn't find her attractive anymore for this very reason. It's clear she's gone way overboard with exercise, protein supplements & all. There is a happy medium to looking like a lady.

    I totally agree with Fatbody. Male and female are to complement each other.
    Women are created to be the helpers for men not competitors.
