For years, people wondered how it was possible for someone to get into Rich’s size and shape. His fitness routine included eating a whopping nine meals a day and drinking multiple protein shakes. He finally admitted in 2016, though, that he had also been using anabolic steroids for the past 27 years. He felt no shame about it, and spoke openly about how it was sometimes necessary if someone wanted to become a bodybuilder. “If you have the choice to stay natural or do steroids, stay natural. There’s no reason to do steroids, you’re only hurting your body, you’re hurting yourself,” he explained in an April 2016 YouTube video . “If you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what – you’re probably going to have to f——’ do ‘em. You’re not going to have a choice.”
The debate in this thread oscillates between two viewpoints. The first is your classic homophobic splurge: “Best case scenario – disown him. Worst case scenario, if he really starts shitting on the family name, would kill him without thinking twice.” The second view takes the focus away from the child’s sexuality and places it on what’s really important: whether or not the child grows up “alpha”. As one poster deftly put it, he’d rather have an “alpha, $10k a day, ballin’ CEO who is homosexual” than a “phaggy-time straight male who is foreveralone”.
