    My Grandmother used to say “It takes all types to make a world” and how right she was! While these ladies are not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ they obviously love the way they are and I am sure there are lots of people who like it too!

    She also said, “There’s nowt as queer as folk”. :-) )

    You really went into the archives and dug up these women. I remember them growing up and although could not understand for the life of me why they wanted to don such muscular physiques, I stayed glued in front of the TV as I am a sports fanatic. Great article! This one was very nostagic for me.

    Ok, I’ll concede that, as a powerlifter, I understand that it takes a lot of work to pack on that much muscle. You have to respect them for that.
