Why do some think that smarter guys are considered " Twinks"; seriously! In which many say are feminine..

    Ok,

    This has probably been brought up many times! Today as I was leaving the gym, I over heard some guys talking and as one dude walked by I clearly heard one of the guys talking call the guy leaving a "Twink", and started to say how easy it would be to out match him in any workout and so on. This just blows my mind because 1st the guy they were referring to really wasn't that small at all and you could clearly see that the dude was probably a swimmer because of the swim cap he still had on his head. The guys were still talking as I was waiting on the front desk and they were saying how guys his size need more guidance. (Get Real!)

    Can someone explain the reason guys who go to the gym to get big (NOT all guys, some)think this way; PLEASE explain!!?? I can't understand why some guys think like this. I am by no means BIG, BUT I will be the first to tell you that I'm fit, in very great shape, and cut for my size. I'm a runner, and a pretty competitive runner at that and work my butt off in the gym and outside when I'm training, weather it's and interval workout running or a core and weight session with my coach in the gym. I see this too many time as I see guys walking around who are in great shape from the hips an up, but when you look down, they have legs like broom sticks. I would be one of the first to challenge any bigger guys to a gym session because its not all about how much weight you can lift,but what you pull in and over all quantity of work you do.

    Def not saying that bigger guys aren't in shape because they are CLEARLY doing something right, but for some to say that we smaller guys are "twinks" and some say we smaller guys act feminine, come on, icon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_eek.gif. I DON'T; not to say there's something wrong acting like that, but it just lights the fire up for me guys. I have a best friend who is in really great shape from head to toe and he even tells me that I work my ass off as a competitive athlete and see the reason why I choose not to go and get bigger. It would make no sense for me to do it as he told me. That comment there seems absolutely correct! But when I here others who I would guest are small thinkers say stuff like what I heard today just kills me. Any know why some think like this? I can match just about anyone in the gym being a smaller guy and don't have to lift extremely heavy, and would be the first to challenge a dude to a leg session any day! Over all my mission is to get extremely fit, strong, and ripped which I think I am, but not pack on muscle.. Comments are welcome please!!
    Thanks guys!

    TLDR;
    Some guys are assholes. And some guys are not.

    Just walk around the gym with a bro jug, and they won't call you a twink anymore.

    You meant smaller not smarter right? Twinks are stereotypically dumb and dizzy (and mezzy), not smart.

    Well this reminds me of yesterday, a regular customer of the restaurant that I'm working at was making fun of me from head to toes. An old Jewish guy, he criticized my bleached hair, my ear pierces, ripped jeans, tattoo for like 10 minutes, saying to my face that they look like shit and calling me MF and stuffs like that; and all I could do at the end was saying that I respected his opinions and preferences and then walked away.

    Well people have the right to have opinions. If a person is rude to you or do something that offends you, well, so what? Forget the douche. Eat a cookie, watch some porn, relax.

    Some guys do functional training, others train for aesthetics. The latter tend not to be athletes, but there are obviously exceptions. Do your thing and remember you're at the gym for you, not for anyone else. As soon as it stops being about what you're doing for you at the gym then you've got a problem...

    This, and the "some guys are assholes" comment. Geebits, I'm so fucking old and ugly, if I worried about what I *think* other people *might* be thinking of me, I'd never go out my door, much less to a gym full of young whippersnappers.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking when I read this comment as well. I wasn't trying to be logic about anything, just asking a couple question to see why some think the way they do. I appreciate the comments and do my on thing at the gym. It's when I hear stupid comments like what I heard, is what makes me a little annoyed that's all and want to get some answers you know as to why some think this way (which isn't logicicon_biggrin.gif)? Love the opinions from others so pls keep them coming!
