There are so many myths when it comes to nutrition and exercise. It’s good that media has put a spotlight on this topic but at the same time it has saturated minds and confused many people on the facts.
An important topic and one that has myths associated with it is women and strength training. Many women believe that if you lift weights you will become bigger, bulker and muscle bound like men. The reality is – women are just not designed that way.

On November 9, 2011 Qwo-Li Driskill, a two-spirit/queer scholar, activist and poet spoke to a rapt audience of about 250 ODU students, faculty and staff about hir* experiences as a two-spirit Cherokee. The closest word that we have in English to two-spirited is transgendered. But to say this is to completely misunderstand the concept of two-spirit. Qwo-Li explained in a truly poetic fashion the difference between two-spirit and transgender. First ze* explained that there is no word for gender in Cherokee. Therefore the binary concept of gender (male/female) does not exist in the indigenous language or its culture. Second, Qwo-Li explained that transgender means to go along a continuum from the fixed points M to F or from F to M. Ze compared two-spirit to a constellation: a variety of elements that come together to form the spiritual nature of a person.
