I’ve finally decided to lose these stubborn extra pounds that have been hanging around me like a stalker for the past five years. And every day when I go to the gym, I have fun playing “is she or isn’t she.” You know the game you play when you’re not really sure if a woman who is an athlete just has straight girl swag or if she’s actually a lesbian.
Clearly all female athletes are not lesbian and not all studs are athletes. But sometimes the sports bra and long basketball shorts really make you go, hmmm. So for all you black lesbian femmes (or studs) who are having a hard time finding the stud, tomboi or masculine woman of your dreams, go to the gym or a sporting event. I promise you, she’s there. You’re welcome. In any case, I won’t try to deconstruct the stud mystique here. But what I will do is point out some of the attractive things that athletes and studs have in common:
Swag (aka confidence)
You don’t generally have to convince an athlete that she is the shit. Why? Because she already knows this. Athletes love to win and therefore have a winning mentality. And she doesn’t have to announce it to everyone. Some of the sexiest female athletes and studs exude a quiet confidence that says, I can show you better than I can tell you and that is what is responsible for dozens of panties dropping whenever a stud walks by.
