Sorry to be off topic but man, I can’t with those fitness youtubers anymore. Cause they all have their opinions about trans people in sports that nobody asked them for! “Yes, I, the white cis man, have an opinion about this topic I have not researched. Listen to me”.

The only guy I watch is Shredded Sports Science because he’s a scientist and even then I dread the day he will say some dumb shit (I think he might have already actually)

MPMD is famous for being “level-headed” as far as fitness influencers go (there’s a small niche of them that reject the over-the-top or downright stupid instagram influencer sphere so they all know each other). He’s also known for being open about his steroid use.

Let that sink in. The guy who would not be allowed to compete in normal circumstances has an opinion about keeping trans people out of pro sports.

I didn’t even watch his entire video but it’s the first result if you google “More plates more dates trans athletes”.

Yeah same, I just read the comments and everyone was agreeing so, I can imagine what the video was saying.

I work from home and have been seriously working out for 2 years now. A few years back, I imagined myself going to the gym, becoming shredded, and then starting a youtube channel to promote healthy masculinity and generally a “progressive” (marxist) and positive message.

I would be closer to that dream now than 4 years ago but truthfully, with the way things are on youtube and who and what fitness is associated with, I’m not so sure I want to put myself out there any more.

My response to “what do you think of trans women in sports” would have been “I’m a cis white dude and so are you, neither of us competes so our opinions literally don’t matter on this subject”

Maybe I am not talking to enough people about it, and I have NO lived experience with this, so idk. I just think a lot of this sentiment is astroturfed and being turned into a wedge issue by the right just like abortion was in the 80s.

Yeah, I mean, they’re the ones always raving about it, keeping the topic alive and keeping change from happening as well. If those influencers (Rogan, Rowling, Peterson etc) stopped talking about it you’d probably see a very quick change on Internet discourse. People would move on. I have to imagine it takes a lot of energy to stay mad over a matter they clearly misunderstand so badly.

finasteride gave me severe depression after half a year of use at .25x the regular recommended dose lol. I went on and off a few times just to make sure it was actually that

also even more common than that apparently is erectile dysfunction and watery cum though I never got

minoxidil also bloated my face to ridiculous amounts due to the water retention. I’m talking like from pointed sharp jawline to round fat face

I do minoxidil and get it from Costco for fairly cheap. It made a fairly noticeable difference. It honestly is getting old though and I think I’m just going to give in and let nature takes it’s course. I think the biggest issue is I just have to accept the hair and body I was born with.

I’ll just grow a big bushy beard and become a Karl Marx impersonation. I definitely have the ability to grow the facial hair for it. Although I’m more of a “widows peak” type on the top. I’d have to shave it back in the middle some to do a true Marx look. Funny enough I have a friend who could very take on a Lenin immersion with his facial shape but the asshole has amazing hair genetics.

Yeah, I agree that like, I would love to NOT go bald. Lmao. But it’s a loosing battle and I feel… Idk. Tired? I think it’s maybe just life in general too but like, I’m getting tired of having one more thing to worry about. With I could just get plugs from the back or side of my head since those bits are thick as can be. Meanwhile my front side trying to go full on Vegeta impersonation. Like how did that shit even evolve? I want to know the evolutionary advantage of loosing your hair. lol.
