    Re: How do you feel about your own personal physique/figure?

    Hmm... difficult question atm. For most of my life I was pretty proud of my body, actually. Loved to show it off for the most part.

    Last year or so though, I've gained more than a few pounds and I'm not so proud of how I look now. I tend to cover myself more, even though that actually makes me look even heavier.

    However... even though I would *prefer* no one see me in a bathing suit at the moment, I don't stop doing things because of that. I go swimming at the college 3 or more times a week. People are gonna see me in my bathing suit! LOL While in San Diego, I went to the beach to body board 3 or more times a week too. So, while I would prefer them not to see me (which is one of your options), I don't stop doing what I want to do because of that. I just deal with it. I go swimming to help me lose the weight I want to lose anyway. Would pretty much defeat the attempt to try and lose weight if I just hid in my bed, wouldn't it?

    Anywho... I finally went with the first option. I go out, I do things, I wear a bathing suit when appropriate. But I'm not *exactly* comfortable atm, and would *prefer* people not see me... however, I'm comfortable enough that I don't let my current (and hopefully temporary) insecurities stop me.

    I'm pretty happy with my build, but I'm way harrier then is currently in vogue in contemporary gay culture.

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I think we are going to need some pictures in order to avoid KK syndrome

    Back in the day, i used to have a wife beater thing (the t-shirt), but it seemed to get me into a bit of problems.

    I went through this period where I wore a lot of beaters, then I realized I didn't want to look guido/white trash anymore.

    I was getting into allot of fights. It seems to happen when you have boxing themed tats on both shoulders to the back.

    I've always wondered how people who have extremely offensive tattoos (swazis, KKK symbols and I guess maybe hammer and sickles in some places) make it through the day without getting into a fight.

    They don't. In fact, those are the kinds of people who start them. or at least, from my personal experience.

    It could be worse. My best friend has all seven deadly sins, and thirteen stars on his his left arm. You cannot imagine the amount of people who have went up to him stating he will go to hell, and its not his body it is gods.

    And, he gets all the hot freaky goth/emo/punk chicks.... Oh well

    Re: How do you feel about your own personal physique/figure?

    I know a guy who has this:



    tattooed on the inside of his forearm. It's a skinhead symbol (although not necessarily a racist one, not all skins are racist, and this guy in particularly is like militantly anti-racist) but when he got he was worried that people would mistake him for a racist. They don't. The reality is much more amusing, people are always asking him "why do you have a crash test dummy tattooed on you arm?" :
