  1. Somethin’ I often get is someone telling me that weight trainers are narcissistic ‘cause they want a good physique. But what he/she ultimately wants to say is that they do not have a good self-esteem. I must admit I get this mostly from very religious people. What I don’t understand is their logic, according to them you will allow yourself to get fat if you have a good self-esteem ‘cause you don’t care how you look, ‘cause you don’t care what other people think. I really think this is BS. What I want to ask is how one counters such logic. Usually when I try and explain this, they think even more that they are right. What motivated me to post this is a film I saw last night Chuecatown (Boystown). This film is a farce/murder mystery with a Bear couple as the heroes. But for me this is a comic version of American Psycho, just another film that hate on people that are successful and like looking after themselves.
