Competitors were judged in the categories of lightweight, middleweight, heavyweight and masters, for age 60 and over, according to five disciplines: mass, definition, proportion, symmetry and stage presence.

I thought the Navy was all about the water.

It’s been 20 years since Charles Bennett took the stage to compete in bodybuilding. But at the age of 63, he’s now done something he’s never done before — compete as a man for the first time in what’s billed as the world’s only transgender bodybuilding competition.

Bennett and seven fellow competitors went before a crowd Saturday evening in the annual International Association of Trans Bodybuilders competition at a theater in Atlanta.

The competition has attracted bodybuilders from across the country and even Russia since it began in 2014, according to executive director and head judge Bucky Motter.

Competitors were judged in the categories of lightweight, middleweight, heavyweight and masters, for age 60 and over, according to five disciplines: mass, definition, proportion, symmetry and stage presence.

Bennett had the most experience of those on stage, and saw his role as more coach than competitor, helping others practice their poses backstage. He also offered diet tips, shared his preshow rituals and helped Peter Moore of Oakland, California, apply fake tan, his hand running over the scars where Moore had his breasts removed when he transitioned to male two years ago.

Go Navy !

  3. 26Limabeans says:

    I read it twice and still can’t tell what name goes to who and what direction the transfer was. And wtf does this have to do with the Navy?
    I’m not reading it again.
    Unless one of them is a SEAL.

    “If you like adventure, don’t you wait to enter
    The recruiting office fast
    Don’t you hesitate, there is no need to wait
    They’re signing up new seamen fast…
    Come on people, fall an’ make a stand
    In the navy, in the navy
    Can’t you see we need a hand”

  5. Well wasn’t to inclined to eat breakfast this morning, now this picture kinda makes me wonder if I’ll even eat lunch.

    Its not gay if its under way?

  7. 1610desig says:

    I think “competitor” Peter Moore is actually Peter Less

  8. LIright47 says:

    OMG! I need a day or two or three to comment further.

  9. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    I need to sue someone for that pic.

  10. David says:

    Damn near more awards than competitors.

  11. OldManchu says:

    If those are men, then take off the sports bra and the tape and show those man nipples.

    Fucking FREAKSHOW!

    And who are the self hating losers standing up there smiling beside these things.

    • OldManchu says:

      Oh never mind…. I thought the other two in the picture were actually males. Then I read this…..

      “He also offered diet tips, shared his preshow rituals and helped Peter Moore of Oakland, California, apply fake tan, his hand running over the scars where Moore had his breasts removed when he transitioned to male two years ago.”

  12. Tallywhagger says:

    They certainly appear to be in top physical condition.

  13. Ex-PH2 says:

    Which one is the guy with the beer belly on the right of the black guy… er, person?

    • OldManchu says:

      That’s the one who the black it helped apply fake tan “……..his hand running over the scars where Moore had his breasts removed when he transitioned to male two years ago.”

  14. AW1Ed says:

    Saw this weirdness yesterday, and I knew Dave just couldn’t pass it up.
    Thanks, Dave.
    *sigh*

  15. River Rat RVN says:

    Regardless of what took place here, right minded people see these freaks as confused tools of the Democrats and the left in general, God won’t be confused on judgment day.

    How sad is this?

  16. Club Manager, USA ret. says:

    Thanks for helping with my diet Dave, I just lost my appetite. What freaks.

  17. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    Suck it up buttercups: here is a wee bit of music while you read the post and thread.

  18. Some Guy says:

    Aside from the black dude, this looks more like a dad-bod competition. Looking at the pic, I feel like I could have won something if I had shaved and tucked my privates between my legs, and I basically look like Hank Hill! Trans or not, nobody is impressed by a spray-tanned flabby belly.

  19. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Well it is a brave new world after all…

  20. ex-OS2 says:

    Gives a new meaning to a countersunk sailor.

  21. Ex-Garbage Gun Shooter says:

    I’m guessing the foundation of this is actually a cost saving measure. I’m thinking the Navy will reap a windfall by changing the “seaman” rating to “semen” thereby saving all that ink and sewing thread previously used to print the “a”.

  22. Mason says:

    “Transgender bodybuilding competition”

    So that’s a thing now. It really is no wonder most of the world hates us.

  23. Old 1SG, US Army (retired) says:

    I’m soooo confused… but LMFAO at all the comments.

    When someone figures this shit out, please let the rest of us know WTF…

  24. Green Thumb says:

    Bizzar-o.

  25. 1610desig says:

    There was a “pride” festival in my local town this past weekend…had another reason to be downtown and it was pretty much this photograph x 100. I was on a historic city center tour and we ploughed right through it…linebackers preening in sundresses and heels, talentless gender confused belly dancers stomping about, fat dykes flitting here and there in showy rainbow capes and some even sporting fairy wands, lots of inappropriate “affection” on display, copious AIDS awareness paraphernalia, an advertised “safe place” at a local coffee shop and a host of other downtown establishments enthusiastically marketing their pride or surely facing boycotts, awful online reviews and bad press from the carpetbagging local paper…all ironically under the banner “love is love”

  26. Tim says:

    I’m guessing that diet and cardio were not required for most of the competitors? Arnold’s legacy is safe!

  27. HMC Ret says:

    Yeah, fine, fuck him/her/it.

  28. Ken.T. says:

    If this is the end result of getting old in the NAVY, God I am glad that I joined the ARMY. All I came away with was P.T.S.D. and a few scares where I hadn’t ducked quick enough.

  29. MustangCryppie says:

    No words… Except that I am soooo happy that I retired in 2005.

  30. Van says:

    You should put warnings for posts like these.

  31. Stephen McCartney says:

    Sort of made me want to puke. Then I felt sorry for these totally messed up people. They are very conflicted and the pics are hiding their despair and unchanged suicide risk. An on stage display of the end result of misguided surgical treatment for a mental disorder (gender dysphoria). A return to the pre frontal lobotomy era.
