    Yea, so this is f***ing ridiculous, obviously... nothing is "turning men gay." On the other hand, I've seen examples of closeted married men getting in shape (through P90X or any other form) and coming out. Probably because they gain confidence/security and want to explore it. This absolutely is NOT turning straight men gay, but it's something that's real.

    Just putting it out there.

    Here's a link to the trash:

    Well... it's always interesting to see how the other side thinks. I wouldn't have read it if not for a friend's link on Facebook and some interesting comments under it. Kinda sorry I did. But my point is still valid.

    Christware is a satire site.. just to let you know. Their article may look real, but they are not to be taken seriously, nor do they represent Christian view.

    On a true story note. I am a P90X online coach (don't take it too seriously, but I had a great result) In 2 years no less than 3 of my formerly Str8 online followers came out of the closet. 2 have moved out and are dating, the third is hanging in there but probably ready to bust loose.

    I think it does give them confidence and a 'legal' reason to look at shirtless pics.

    My online coach profile says that I am openly gay and partnered, so no solicitations, but I feel I should have had some counseling training before I put that out there.

    So Chirstwire is not that far off. BTW I am one of hundreds of gay coaches out there. I make enough to pay for my Shakeology addiction

    Grahamzentouch saidReally? You read that and didn't get it was satire. Scary! Do us a favor and stay out of the equal rights debate.


    Of course I know that. I wasn't making it an equal rights debate in any way. Did you read the point that I made? It was just food for thought, sparked by a silly bit of writing.

    I also read this, which indicates you believe this is the point of view from the other side. So yes, please don't be a voice in anything requiring logic.


    If you're naive enough to think there aren't people out there who believe shit like this to be true, then you've got no business being in any logical argument. The Onion is also all satire... The definition of satire is the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity. It doesn't mean the point isn't grounded in some absurd argument. So... bottom line: Go fuck yourself.

    You did not realize this was similar to the Onion and you had to look satire up. Lets call a truce. You're embarrassed for believing that it was real. Even when they talked about protein attaching to the gay gene. Ha ha.

    Of course I know people think this is real. I just hoped us gays were not among them. The fact that you thought the article was real was scary. Glad you know otherwise now.



    I'm a journalist. I know what satire is, I know it when I see it... I used it to make an observation about men getting in shape and coming out of the closet. Now go away... you've made the point that you're an asshole, and that's the only point you've made.

    Yea, I thought it was a bit too preposterous to be legit.

    Photo Evidence
    Most liberals and supporters of The Homo Gay Agenda don’t understand complex journalism, nor do they some time understand basic English. For those whose minds are to feeble to understand my Jessica Fletcher style of detective work, I have added images from the BeachBody.com forums to show you the effects of P90X on American males.

    It's too ignorant to be satire, btw.

    Pffft... you should see me do it. It's hawt.

    The article left out the fact that Katie from Back & Biceps would turn any straight man gay just with her voice.

    In their defense, p90x is pretty gay.
