    Not to be rude to the kind creates of RealJock but what other fitness or body building sites have you found useful?
    I know there was a thread about this before but search didn't bring anything up.

    DISCLAIMER

    That site is okay, but beware. It isn't safe as it is here.

    Guys are really, really, really, really, really, really, REALLY, homophobic on that site.

    Reason I'm here and not there.

    But you are more than welcome to make an account and don't say I didn't tell you so.

    It is hardly "safe" here.

    I don't clearly recall seeing any homophobic or threatening content on Bodybuilding.com when I visited that site. Granted it is heterocentric but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is homophobic.

    You were with your last guy for a long time. How did y'all meet?

    He is referring to the forum.

    BB is full gay guys. If you want to talk about fitness, go there. If you want to talk about favorite underwear and secret crushes, stay here on RJ. icon_biggrin.gif

    Bodybuilding.com (and the BodySpaces area)
    T-Nation.com
    Fitocracy


    If you are looking to talk about BODYBUILDING and FITNESS, these are good places to do that; of course, like people already mentioned there's a difference between trading tips and talking about workout routines and drooling over pictures of men in their boxers.

    So long as you keep focused, people usually keep civil. And you can reap a lot of good info.

    I agree, that site is homophobic. I have seen the term "phaggot" thrown around on that site. You can view exercises but I would never join and post there.

    I'm not condoning the use of the word "faggot" in a derogatory manner. But those guys just use it as a casual expression. Call them a faggot back, and you'll be instant bros. I'm totally serious.

    I was using MyFitnessPal for a while over the summer, but not really getting what I want from it. It's connected to the "MapMy..." apps, which I use to track my runs, bike rides, etc., but its estimated calorie burn is ridiculous.

    There is a friendly enough LGBT forum in there, but not a lot of serious or educated people in there that I've encountered.

    You write that you don't condone the use of the word "faggot" in a derogatory manner, but then you go on to condone the use of the word "faggot" in a derogatory manner. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Members at BB.com use it as a casual expression because sexism and homophobia is normalized there to the point moderators have given up attempting to make larger parts of the forums inclusive and welcoming. Not only to gays, lesbians, etc., but just to women. (Message any mod about this; they're constantly in a state of damage control.) "Faggot", or their variation of the word, is still primarily used as a pejorative.

    Fuck trying to make guys like that feel comfortable by adopting their bad behavior. That site doesn't offer anything special enough for people to put with that.
