Many years ago one of my students, a young lady named Gloria, was perplexed. She wanted to lift weights. She wanted to look good, but she was just terrified that she’d end up looking like a man.
I advised her that as long as you are not taking any kind of anabolic steroids, like most of the women in contests today do, then looking like a man should not concern you.
Most of the women competing in today’s competitions look like men because they have been using testosterone enhancing drugs. It appears to the public that a women’s head has been placed on a man’s body, and sometimes it doesn’t even look like a women’s head.
I tried to explain to her that she could never look like that because women manufacture more estrogen and more progesterone they do testosterone. I told her that she was a pure woman, and a very lovely looking woman at that, and that she would never look like a man.
