    To be fair, I suppose some hay could be made of this coming from Georgia-Pacific, of all places.
    Strength is good all around, I like that lifting has become more popular with both sexes.

    I do think there are more bodyshapes among women than men and that strength can look different if that makes sense, I've known a few women who complained about how strength training did not give them the appearance they were looking for which was kind of impossible as they wanted a different shape as opposed to simply "shaping up".

    Personally, I think it should be about how utilitarian strength and a hard physic can be as opposed to an aesthetic.

    Paying on straight commission is how you know who is worth a shit to begin with. Gender is irrelevant.
    It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

    If we consider the core idea of "feminism" to be the belief that people should receive equal protection under the law regardless of sex, I absolutely support it and think of it positively.

    Though feminism can be used in other contexts too as a term. If used in another way, I'm not going to make a guarantee right now of my support or lack thereof.

    The definition of feminism I use is this one, from a standard dictionary:

    the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men
    I have run into very few people who oppose it, though many can offer legitimate critique of specific advocates for it, or methods used to try to achieve it.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
