Brain, brawn and beauty

This professional bodybuilder was originally going to be known as Lori Gates, but she changed her stage name to be masculine so as to mess with people’s heads. The below image looks like it could be from one of those eighties exercise tapes which Jane Fonda monopolized much to her benefit. Here are some of her astute observations which she has made over the years…

The ignorance of the South! I went to the store after a great workout where this white man about 48/50 years old came up to me and asked me if I was born a man! HA! I said no politely and then he asked if I’m sure? I looked at him and said you know what, I am sure, can you say that about yourself?  God forbid women have MORE muscle than men. If we do, we must not be women! So I guess because the NFL players slap each other on their behinds, they must be gay! Don’t you despise ignorant people?!

When I was training, it crossed my mind – wouldn’t it be cool to have a gym where it was ‘Women Only’? BUT with women who are in shape to competitor status only! I probably would be just as bad as a guy though and not be able to focus.

Wendy Williams was an attractive woman not too long ago. Don’t these women know when to stop with the facial fillers? My goodness, they are all going nuts! Why do they think it is normal or even attractive to have their face pulled so tight and their eyes bulging out to the point they look like a pug dog?! The lengths which they will go to not to have any wrinkles astounds me. These people are in no position to moralize about inner beauty.

I actually think lines under a woman’s eyes are attractive. Of course, she has to be an attractive woman to begin with but fake is just not attractive to me. Do people in other countries go this nuts over their looks or is it a U.S. thing? I do know women in other countries are not into the breast implants like Americans are.

I don’t care who’s party you are with – if you watched the Lincoln Memorial celebration during the fireworks and were not moved by the military, the gorgeous D.C. buildings nor the singing, I would really question if you truly are an American at heart.

The most precious thing in life costs nothing. It is called nature. But only those smart enough take the time to embrace it.

Why has Facebook turned into a complaint commission? My God. Is this all of you know how to do is just take things, pick them apart and whine? There are so many wonderful things in the world to talk about. To share or quote. To be a voice for animals or kids. You know, those that cannot help themselves. Instead, every time I jump on here someone is ragging on someone or complaining about the country. You know what that means? You need to be more physical. Go workout. Go for a jog, swim or do something productive. You have way too much energy and that is why you can constantly nitpick. Get off of your collective rears and go climb a mountain or something. It will help your attitude because it ALL starts there!

Melania Trump looked GORGEOUS in that blue outfit. If I wasn’t already attracted to women that would have convinced me!

A woman’s greatest strength is her emotion, but it is also her greatest weakness. If she knows WHEN to use it she can be stable and powerful. Unfortunately most do not

Every Thanksgiving, I volunteer in soup kitchens in very poor areas in the U.S. Every Christmas, I pick one poor family and buy them gifts. Usually, these families are in the ghettos. When I was residing in Italy within a rural area, I helped families rebuild after past earthquakes. My next stop is Africa. You see, unlike many Americans who seem to like to grab memes and screaming their point, I choose to ACTUALLY and PHYSICALLY live my point!

Shame on you, Ellen DeGeneres. Do you not have enough money without selling those leather shoes?!

I love this country but I have to say the people are so overweight that it is really sad. I can travel all over Canada or Europe and rarely see someone who is overweight. Do you not care how you feel? Wanting to be in shape and feeling healthy is a healthy way of thinking. Not taking supplements or diet pills to lose the weight or give you the muscle but to do it naturally. It does work – eventually! No wonder I stopped dating Americans a long time ago!

Madonna is not a violent person but she is just a moody shrew with very bad choice for words. She needs to move back to London!

Unless you are a FEMALE BODYBUILDER, one cannot really appreciate what I am going to say: I am a little disgusted about the entire Caitlyn Jenner thing. I mean now there is a modeling agency that opened in L.A. for Trans genders only. They totally skipped over FEMALE BODYBUILDERS! I wrote to the agency and said, ‘What about us? We are REAL WOMEN, with REAL MUSCLE.’ We have been around for decades and never really received the positive recognition that we deserved.

So for all of you ladies out there who are competing in BB or Physique in general, trying to make a name for yourself and walking down that path, my hat goes off to you. Not only do you look great but your character of strength is huge, for I know what kind of woman that it takes to walk down that lonely, competitive path in this sport! I am an Italian bodybuilder as well as a loving, passionate person.

I say SHAME on the women out there who had the power to do something positive for the sport! Those ladies who retired with titles, prestige and the connections. You should have joined together to spend your time making an easier path for the up and coming ladies in the sport. But this sport has always been and probably always will be about SELF. When it is about self, it eventually becomes a very lonely place to be. Sometimes, non existent. Case in point: any given Ms. Olympia.

One of my ex-girlfriends, who was 21 years older than I, once said that I was an old soul.

I really wish it was mandatory for all guys at age 18 for 4 years, just like Singapore, to have to serve in the military! Then they would be doing something PRODUCTIVE with their life, appreciate the country they live in and would think twice about burning flags. It would give them purpose, excellent physical training and time to think about what they want to do in life. I know many people who have had made great careers for 20 plus years. A sense of purpose keeps people from being bored, from getting into trouble and keeps them useful!

The reason I do not compete anymore – this article is too true. Having been around some of the ‘mentioned players’ there is much truth behind what Iris said. Too much drama, too much politics and instead of the ‘best physique’ winning it is about someone’s favorite. I love the sport but wished it was performance based. Like tennis or track and field. Then it would be clear who should win. But this has been going on for as many years as I can remember, so this is NOTHING new! They should stick to ‘one rule’ for entering the show for everyone. NOT pick and choose who they want to compete. My goal is to get into the ‘best’, healthiest competitive shape ever but save it ALL for my website that is coming out – To have COMPLETE TOTAL CONTROL and NOT PLAY THE GAMES, nor be played! Denise Masino had the right idea years ago!

I would love to ship ALL the people in this country who destroy the flag, make havoc in the streets, beat up on others, you know, all the violent people of either ‘political party’ with all the animal abusers in this country, to the Middle East! Just dump their behinds out there in the desert and let them fend for themselves. Talk about attitude adjustment!

What incredible motivation that Hillary Clinton woman has. We’re “so” glad that she is using her money for a purpose – paying off everyone in politics. Wow! The next 4 years will be the ultimate change in America. Many people that know ‘of me’ wonder which party that I lean toward. I don’t. I don’t think any ONE political party is better than another. If there is one woman that can make me ‘go straight’ it would be Hillary Clinton! OMG, what a harrigan! A presidential election is a media circus.

You know you are growing when you suddenly become uncomfortable by moving out of your comfort zone by choice or by chance. If every day were easy then we would become lazy and complacent. It is life and the people in it who challenge us. But is how we react and what we do with it that is OUR indicator of where we are in our lives at that moment.

If you are in my life, there is almost nothing that I wouldn’t do for you, within reason, but if I hear or read comments that try to justify abuse of animals or mistreatment then I will come after you VERBALLY in every sense of the word! The Sicilian side of me is a side you do not want to meet! There is NO REASON to be cruel to animals in this world whether it be for hunting purposes or through slaughterhouses. Someone needs to protect the animals! Pigs being punched and beaten for Walmart makes me want to stop eating meat of any sort.

I cannot believe how trashy that Las Vegas is. My God. People drinking alcohol at 5 a.m. Not to mention the most lost-looking people ever. So sad! Don’t know how I lived here for 2.5 years. Reminds me of parts of Florida minus the ocean. Thank God that I had my senses to leave when I did. To visit a place is so different than living there! I always thought the people in and around “Hollywood” were stupid, vain and egotistical. One of the reasons I did not like living in L.A. Well, last night’s mistake from the 2017 Oscars validated my opinion. I saw the news flash this morning from last night’s show. Really? LOL!

I was speaking to my friend earlier. She was telling me about the traffic cops who she runs into in NYC and their attitude. I expressed the same for some of them in Florida. Most of my online friends are ‘fans’ of mine who have followed me throughout the years and know that I started out as a cop on the East Coast before moving to Los Angeles to pursue professional bodybuilding in the `90s and soon after entered the adult industry, making it a long career mixed with fitness.

Do not really understand why the sanctuary cities in the U.S. are putting forth so much effort to help Illegals when they do not even put forth this kind of effort to help the homeless, the veterans and people who are both. Once, I was sent back home from a country because I did not have the proper documents. It took a lot of time to get the correct paper work together – My goodness. Traveling to a country that is not your birth place is a ‘gift’ not a right. It is up to that country who they want to allow in at any given time. If that country wants to change the rules of the game, they can. It is their game. Americans really need to get over themselves and stop acting like spoiled brats! They are really embarrassing.

Africans have a thing called ubuntu. We believe that a person is a person through other persons. That my humanity is caught up, bound up, inextricably, with yours. When I dehumanize you, I dehumanize myself. The solitary human being is a contradiction in terms. Therefore you seek to work for the common good because your humanity comes into its own in community, in belonging.

What makes this country (U.S.A) great is the freedom we have. Freedom of speech, religion and the right to. For instance to bear arms. However, as an ex cop I know when I use to own a gun it was a huge responsibility and most people cannot be trusted behind a wheel of a car! CERTAIN weapons should ONLY be in the hands of law enforcement and military. In the wrong hands the damage will only be worse because of the power of the weapon. That is where this country went wrong – they became too relaxed with certain issues and throughout the years people with bad intentions whether from the U.S. or from another country eventually caught on and realized what they could GET AWAY WITH IN THE U.S.A.

I chose the people who I associated with very carefully but cops do not have that option. They have to deal with whomever they come across during their shift. They do not have a choice. I applaud the men and women in law enforcement who have put in 10 plus years of service and still can express kindness and compassion, at the same time exercising good, fair judgment. I really believe most people that go into law enforcement do so with the right intentions but some of those officers lose sight of those reasons due to the ‘reality’ of life and dealing with humans in their lowest form. I look back and honestly do not think I would be the person who I am today if I stayed put as a cop. I believe that I would have become jaded and very cynical, among other things.
