Bodybuilding = Narcissism & latent homosexual tendencies?

I was reading a rather disturbing article about how bodybuilders are "Narcissistic" pigs that have latent homosexual tendencies. I don't personally agree with this as stark generalization but the article does have some merit - Check it out...(http://www.toddlertime.com/sam/6.htm)

Malignant Self Love: Narcissism Revisited. ... They tend to bond with males in male settings (army, sports, police, bodybuilding, the Catholic Church) and to ...

"Some narcissists are raised by weak or inaccessible mothers and harsh, rigid, or sadistic fathers. They tend to bond with males in male settings (army, sports, police, bodybuilding, the Catholic Church) and to seek empathy, warmth, support, secure friendship, and love among their male peers. This macho bonding masks repressed and latent homosexual tendencies, the result of incestuous or simply pathologically excessive love towards the father (or father figure). Terrified of these homosexual tendencies, these narcissists are besieged by feelings of guilt (towards their mothers with whom they compete for the father's affection) and inadequacy (they can never quite measure up to the father's standards). They become extreme and virulent misogynists. By hating women and defying them - they hate and defy life itself (women being the givers of life). They thus deny their effeminate self and exercise their self-destructive impulses".

LOL, bro, they are not taking about Bodybuilders, they are talking about Narcissists. It's a term used in pyschotherapy.

I'm sure some BBers are Narcissists (In psycological terms)

Yet another reason why psychology should be discredited and removed from the medical establishment. The book this aricle was taken from is not worth the paper it is printed on.

Bodybuilding is merely being used an an example of one of MANY places where males ,in particular, congregate. How the hell you came up with the idea the author is suggesting all bodybuilders are narcissistic homos is a mystery for the ages.

Btw, There might be more info on that site but I refuse to click on that url and end up sharing a cell with Pete Townsend...

All this from a field that has a documented pervert with a penis fixation as one of its prominent founding fathers of thought.

If you're that worried about your homo tendencies, here's what you do: turn on the Discovery Channel and watch the Christopher Lovell home decorating show. If you enjoy it and feel that you relate with Christopher in any way. YOUR A ING HOMO!!!

I would not condemn psychology for this . This comes out of Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis. A fictional explanatory model that has no research findings to support any of its assertions. Psychiatry is practiced by medical doctors. They get a 3 month psychiatric residency during their medical training.

Psychologist are divided into many specialities and schools. Cognative psychologist tend to explain your actions and behavior using conscious thought as a determinant. Behavioral psychologist are focused on your muscular-skeletal behavior. They attribute your actions to learning that takes place when you do something....behavior that works for you is increased in frequency (positive reinforcement).

In either case, genetics, biochemistry, early learning, natural cogative endowment, and current environment all impact your behavior.

The brains of homosexually oriented individuals (according to research) has small structural differences from heterosexuals. This means that they are programmed to prefer their own sex and they usually come to this realization at puberty.

Our culture has predisposed men to enjoy the company of other men for fulfulling relationships and to enjoy women for sex. We are learning that women are probably more intelligent, capable and moral than men and we will probably have a saner world when they have more authority. We are beginning to know how to relate to women as people, not objects.

To like the company of men, even to love other men, is not a sign of sexual preference. It is a positive statement about your emotional maturity and your ability to relate to others of our species.
