Now the men are under attack!


This weekend I went to the nearby mall to kill some time and look for a new shirt. One of the stores that I go to on occasion (which will remain nameless) actually had a guy there, standing in front of the store with his shirt off. Now, I don't know what this is supposed to do for business, but both I and the couple behind me just burst out laughing. I mean, the guy was muscles on muscles (but obviously used creatine b/c he had a lot of water weight) and completely hairless except for a bit on his head.
Now it wasn't him that I found ridiculous, but the fact that a company actually took one of the guys that they use on their posters and placed him LIVE in front of their store. It's not suggestion to look perfect anymore- IT'S MANDATORY! I know women have been fighting this battle for years now but it's absurd that they're now attacking men and that some of us are actually buying it! I was a gym rat for a year and a half. Three times a week, tuna fish sandwich and a protein shake afterward was my religion. Don't get me wrong- I had never looked better. But at a certain point I had to accept the fact that my body wasn't ever going to look like Arnold's. I'm just not built that way. Besides, I was depriving myself of fun with friends b/c I was too scared that I'd miss a workout. That's ridiculous.
Anyway, my whole point to the story is that posters on a wall is one thing, guys and girls paid to stand in front of the store is another. There is a line and it was crossed. Personally, I don't feel the need to shop there ever again. Now, where's the number to that Big and Tall store............
