Is It Me or is Bodybuilding.com Really Homophobic?

    Bodybuilding.c0m (as well their forums) is tremendous useful for information about supplements, nutrition, workout regimes and generally how to build muscle.

    I used it extensively for years to gain muscle and learn how to bodybuild.

    But, I only went to product pages and the forums for supplements or nutrition. Sometimes the forum for general exercise.

    I saw the word 'phaggot' thrown around a few times but I didn't really pay attention to it as I was using the forum purely for reference.

    However, out of boredom I browsed the 'General' forums and apparently it's a cesspool of homophobia.

    Imagine every homophobic person you've ever met or read about on the news converging in one forum.

    I'm not surprised at all considering the type of people who use it but I don't know if I want to continue using it...

    All of us on RJ should hijack their forums. Just totally take it over. Ha! They'd be so confused.

    No, it's not you. Actually, I first learned about RealJock on one of those other fitness sites when someone made a remark to the effect, that's so gay - it belongs on that faggot site RealJock. So, of course, I checked this site out and decided to stick around. icon_cool.gif

    They are. Big time. And not to derail your thread but they also encourage a 19 year old from South Florida to commit suicide live on cam and to add insult to injury, they made fun of his dead afterwards. I stopped giving them my business just for this reason.

    I used to actively update my bodyspace profile there because I liked the progress tracking tools they have. I gained about 10 pounds when I was religiously tracking things and got a lot of encouragement, information and good advice from both their content and the people on it. You're absolutely right that it's homophobic though.

    I haven't really noticed it on there, but I haven't spent a lot of time. I'll approach my reading with some of your commentary in mind and see what I think.

    This is disgusting to hear such a thing

    I will not even go on that web site anymore.

    Who ever instigated this thing will be seriously punished in the lake of fire

    God bless the family of the suicide

    I vaguely remember that story being in the news. In Googling around and refreshing my memory, it was interesting to learn some particular pieces of background information. The guy was suffering from bi-polar disorder, and he is alleged to have been a well known forum troll. Hmmmmmm... a forum troll with depression who is encouraged to commit suicide... sounds a bit like some of the drama right here on RJ.

    I'll give some credit to the RJ Forums though....I can't say I've ever seen blatant disregard for someone's life in a literal sense on this site.

    Interestingly enough, a number of studies done on so called 'straight guys' and admitted 'homophobic straight guys', showed that when watching gay porn during the testing...the 'homophobic straight guys' got erections, but not the other group. Hmmmmm! Just FYI.

    I made an account on bodybuilder but cant find any "phaggot" spewing threads.

    [edit] Um wait...there's plenty of homosexicles on this website. Look at this fucking hipster thread:
