that is gross.
Why do you think that the picture of the woman with huge strong muscles is gross?
THINK ABOUT IT!
Modern society (that includes your family, peers, and mainstream culture) has been enculturating you to believe that it's "gross" for a woman to
have muscles because women are SUPPOSED to be small framed, fragile, weak, and vulnerable in order for men to be able to OPPRESS them.
um, that women looks like a man.
it has nothing to do with Modern society.
It has nothing at all to do with society's norms.
It's a biological thing. something engrained in our DNA.
Normal women have NEVER looked like that.
There are many things society influences. This is not one of them.
you're a sociology major, well I have a psychology degree.
Society puts out a lot of stuff saying women should be skinny, but it's a weight issue, not a muscle issue.
You got that so wrong.
It's gross simply because she looks like a man. Societal conditioning doesn't apply in this case.
