The Meaning Of Diversity

This may be offensive to some readers. You have been warned


diversity |diˈvərsitē; dī-|

noun ( pl. -ties)

the state of being diverse; variety : there was considerable diversity in the style of the reports.

• [usu. in sing. ] a range of different things : newspapers were obliged to allow a diversity of views to be printed.

ORIGIN Middle English : from Old French diversite, from Latin diversitas, from diversus ‘diverse,’ past participle of divertere ‘turn aside’ (see divert ).

"If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity."
John F. Kennedy

"The diversity of mankind is a basic postulate of our knowledge of human beings. But if mankind is diverse and individuated, then how can anyone propose equality as an ideal? Every year, scholars hold Conferences on Equality and call for greater equality, and no one challenges the basic tenet. But what justification can equality find in the nature of man? If each individual is unique, how else can he be made 'equal' to others than by destroying most of what is human in him and reducing human society to the mindless uniformity of the ant heap?"
Murray N. Rothbard

"In Germany they first came for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me - and by that time no one was left to speak up."
Rev. Martin Niemoller

Blowing This Out

Recently, I’ve received a few emails criticizing me for presenting a seminar to a specific group this past weekend. I presented the seminar on my philosophy of training based on more than two decades of powerlifting and muscular development. Having been Under The Bar my whole life training for meets and/or shows, I can say with certainty that I know what works for me. I have also been around long enough to see what works for others, and can troubleshoot and help resolve just about all powerlifting-related issues.

The field of strength training has always been, and will always be, a dick measuring contest. Everyone feels their dick (training philosophy) is better than the next. They will do whatever it takes to make their dick look bigger, while at the same time trying to make the other guy’s dick look smaller. We see this every day in the criticism we hear and read. The fact of the matter is that we all (except females) have dick, we’ve had them our entire lives. Nothing will change this fact. There is also not a whole lot we can do about the size of our member, so regardless of whose dick you think is bigger, if it’s anyone’s dick at all, it makes zero difference. What matters is how you blow your nut.

You see, if we really compared one dick to the next, it wouldn’t matter if one guy was four inches bigger than the other because the smaller guy would walk away muttering about how he lost because the other guy was on drugs, had cosmetic surgery, was half hard before the contest, or wore looser briefs (less daily compression). The smaller guy may also say it was colder on his side of the room, he didn’t sleep well, or his briefs were tighter. The point is that the excuses will always deflect attention from the fact that the guy has a smaller dick. BUT - it's still his dick and he will always know better how it works than the other guy. What we are really talking about here is whose dick works better, aren't we? Who blows the better nut? Yet, before we can debate this, we need to define what a good nut is, correct? Whether it’s volume, duration, shakes, how fast or slow? What is it? What would be defined as “the best nut”?

I guess this would have to be defined by the dick that blows it. I'm sure we can all agree that every dick is looking for the same general outcum: to blow a nut. Good, now we know the size of the dick (training philosophy) doesn’t matter as long as one blows a nut. This is where I look at things differently. I know how big my dick is, and I know how I like to blow a nut, but I have a community to serve where everyone has different dicks. Some know how to blow a nut, while others are still looking for the best way. Actually, do we ever stop looking for a better way to blow a nut? Hell, I’m still looking for the perfect nut and haven't found it yet. Because I'm looking for the perfect nut, I see this process as nothing more than self-serving masturbation. I see the strength community as a huge circle jerk. I want to see how everyone blows their nut. Granted, 90% of what we all do is the same (pull pants down, grab dick, move hand, etc), but what I want to see is the 10% that's different.

You see, some guys love to crank as fast as they can (the dynamic method). Some will smack the shit out of it (shock training). Some will crank hard, let go and crank hard again (rest-pause). Many will use a regular grip for 10 strokes and then flip to reverse grip for 10 (muscle balance). Others will grab as hard as they can and stroke hard and slow for a few reps (max effort method). Others will use a steady pace (repetition method). Some try to blow as fast as they can (HIT training). Others try to make it last (volume training). Hell, some even use bands and chains (Westside), while others like to just lay it flat and palm it around for half the time, then flip it the last half (upper/lower body splits). I could go on and on, because there are hundreds of ways to blow a nut.

The point I'm making is that while my philosophy is grounded on going hard and heavy, I may not always have the time or metal attitude to do it. In cases like this, some slapping and lube can go a long way. There are other times when my hand may go numb, and I need to add in some rest-pause training. Finally, if I have the time, nothing beats a good high volume session.

In the end I WILL blow my nut. Who cares how I get there?

In summary, I could always just beat off in front of a mirror and tell myself how great I am, or I can join a circle jerk and watch what others do in case the time comes when I have a hard time getting off.

What I try to do on this site is provide a canvas of nut stains, so when the time cums, you can blow the biggest nut of your life!
