    She is no stick insect herself, so I don't suppose she could mean that at all.
    Yes, exactly - she has fine shape.

      "it is better to look good than to feel good, and by the way, you look mahvelous."
      "Well, I am only doing my duty."

        Everyone has a duty to try and look good. Do it for your wife, your girlfriend or grandma.

          Interesting that for all her talk about looking like a woman Isinbayeva is competing in a sport that was deemed too "dangerous" for women only a few decades ago.

            As bizarre as this looks to some people, and she is admittedly . . . 'out there' . . . if she were not flexing, she would look very, very good to 95% of all males.

              Marlow, how can you possibly be so presumptuous as to speak for 95% of all males? I would guess that you are way off on this.

                Perhaps. All I know is that she's neither fat nor skinny, and for most men, that's all the reason they need to go for that thang. :twisted:

                    Huh? She should not be allowed to compete against women because of her clothing or hairstyle? :shock:
                    Of course, once she started taking male hormones as part of the sex-change process, she was eliminated from women's competition, but before that, did anyone have a problem with her?
                    To clarify: My intentions were squarely on her sex change.
                    I had no objections to her participation prior to that.

                    I used her as an example to clarify that a woman, IMO, has
                    no duty to even remain a woman---let alone look good or
                    femine.

                      I am married to an x-body builder and even this pumped up gal shown here, with no oil, relaxed, not dieted down and dehydrated, walking on a beach would turn most men's heads, not their stomachs. Of course there are much bigger women who are like totally gross. In other words i agree with Marlow.

                        I found an article about the WNBA teaching rookies how to do makeup in order to be more "feminine". The article is at http://feministing.com/archives/009142.html. There is also some comments on the article at the website.
