I have heard of this documentary but never watched it until now. I was debating on whether to watch it back then but I'm glad I did now. I haven't had much experience being in the gay scene but watching this documentary, I feel it's for the better that I haven't.
These guys... It's like a double edged thing. I'm happy that these men feel good about themselves whereas they feel more self confident but I can't help but think there's something missing...
I've always felt disconnected from people and in time, while it does get at me, I learned to accept who I am and to just live enjoying the little things in life. As far as the physical attraction thing goes, I know I can pack on muscle and be considered "hot" but I personally like the size and way I am even if it's not ideal for other gay men. Have I ever wished I could be more attractive? I won't lie, sometimes I did/do but I know there will always be someone out there more attractive then yourself so I feel you should do things for yourself and have fun doing them. That's not to say that if an individual enjoys working out, he shouldn't. If it makes him happy, that's all that matters.
And this goes for any hobby be it drawing or playing an instrument and so on.
It's kind of painful to watch the truth since honestly, I am attracted to guys with muscle (I love size difference) but seeing how the feelings wouldn't be mutual, it does make me wonder at times but at the end of the day, I like being my lean self. I eat healthier than I used to and I do exercise and I feel just fine.
Anyway, thanks for sharing the link, it was an interesting watch and I have learned some thing from it.
