Men's Health-Aydian Dowling Failure to be an Ultimate Guy

It was revealed yesterday (to I'm sure the HUGE disappointment of Amy Aydian Dowling and her trans female supporters who mobilized for her popular vote) that firefighter and paramedic Tim Boniface won the Ultimate Men’s Health Guy contest.
If you recall Amy Aydian Dowling was opting to be the first transgender female on the cover of Men's Health for a contest that is open to the general male public. To the surprise and complete underestimation of transgenderism's current popularity, Amy did seal/steal the popular vote due to massive promotion across transgender internet sites/forums/blogs/tumbl's/Ytubes etc. By doing so the magazine were forced to take her application as a MEN'S Health contestant, despite the nay-saying by real men with real male health needs, issues and pleasures.

Dowling did manage to make it to the top 5 where she along with 4 men were flown to the magazine's hub for some clearly embarrassing PR. Not only does the magazine minimize Amy's time on this short video, Amy's lack of accomplishments compared to the men's is immense.

The Men:
  •  Omari Grey, 37, is a committed educator. A math teacher, fitness trainer, and basketball coach, Grey lives in Herndon, Va., with his wife and eight children. He hopes to use land given to his ancestors by former slave owners in 1865 to host programs for kids in Washington, D.C., which has some of the worst schools in the country. “The plan is to take kids out of their environment and teach them skills and creative thinking in a fun way, and to get kids back in touch with nature and using their hands,” says Grey.
  • Adam Wheeler, of Colorado Springs, Colo., won the bronze medal in wrestling at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He is currently a SWAT policeman with the Colorado Springs Police department. The 34-year-old father of two has received two medals of valor in the force. In 2014, he became a World Champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. 
  • Danny Farrar, of Meyersville, Md., served 11 years in the U.S. Army and has survived post-traumatic stress disorder, homelessness, and a suicide attempt. Now 35, Farrar serves former soldiers as cofounder of both the fitness franchise SoldierFit and the nonprofit 22 Needs a Face, which works to combat the depression that drives 22 veterans a day to commit suicide. 
  • Tim Boniface, 36, left a lucrative career in banking to work as a firefighter and paramedic after the events of September 11, which resulted in the deaths of two of his close friends. Boniface says the work he does helping people every day in Lexington, Ky., helps him sleep better at night. The leading cause of death among firefighters is cardiac arrest, and Boniface hopes to inspire his fellow firefighters to upgrade their fitness and health. 
 The Female:
  • Aydian Dowling, a 28-year-old transgender man, founded BeefHeads Fitness, a YouTube channel geared toward transgender individuals who want to get fit and healthy. Dowling’s online made-to-order clothing company Point5cc provides free programs and services to transgender individuals. He also trains other transgender men in his hometown of Eugene, Ore., where he lives with his wife, Jenilee.
Amy makes T shirts, regularly injects steroids to gain muscle tone and promotes the dangers of transition to other females as a viable option out of lesbianism and womanhood. I'm embarrassed for Amy, not because she lost, but because she failed to take notice of the humility surrounding her amidst her blind MEN'S Health cover goals.

While Men's Health most certainly underestimated trans trending, Amy and her trans female cohorts and supporters underestimated two VERY prominent grandeur's to men and the Men's Health Magazine, which boasts nearly 2 million (mostly male) subscribers  (not counting the 47 other countries where the magazine has a huge popularity) in the US:

REAL men individually and collectively both worship and possess this
and this
both of which link male power, prowess and keys to the Promised Land. And neither of which Amy or women like Amy can or will ever own. Women modeling themselves after men by whatever man made means possible, fail not only as men, but the woman they so desperately try to shed.

  1. YES!!! I am SOOOOO GLAD about this news that words cannot possibly describe how glad I am that Men's Health (which I do not read, btw) didn't become yet another opportunity to cram this transgender movement thing down the throats of "normal" people!!! It's bad enough we have to see Bruce Jenner's ugly face when checking out a few simple items at the dollar store, but at least with MtF's you can laugh it off more easily because most of them have no hope of actually "passing." I also think it's symbolic that a firefighter with a REAL "hose," pun intended, won the vote among real men, lol. The lip jewelry in and of itself makes Miss Aydian, who doesn't even know how to correctly spell Aidan, a poor choice for a magazine with the word HEALTH in its title, and what she has done to achieve the body she has is anything but "healthy" or "natural."

    1. She shouldnt have won because she isnt a man, period. But her situation and Jenner's, which coincide, illustrate that so long as we're living under patriarchy, names can change, dress can change but male privilege and misogyny remain intact. Jenner is hailed as "brave" and "courageous" while Amy remains weak, ineffectual and unknown outside of transgender pockets.

      Which proves, females side stepping into "men", remain women within patriarchy. If she only had put that same work and desire into feminism, who knows....

    2. I totally agree. Imagine if she spent all that energy on feminist goals instead of trying to become something she'll never be.

      The root of all trans is misogyny, plain and simple. Females aren't welcome in male space whilst males are running rampant over female space, killing us, mocking us.

    3. Wow, what a progressive, enlightened readership Dirt's blog attracts.

    4. Sex-role conformity and medicalizing homosexual children is not progressive. You're on the wrong side of history, Anon.

    5. uhh...Dirt...maybe it's because Jenner came from a famous family? Honestly, you call this shit misogynistic, but everything you're spewing here is ten times worse.

    6. Laverne Cox, Calpernia Addams, Lynn Conway, Lana Wachowski, Renée Richards, Virginia Prince, Paris Lees, Andrea James, Jazz Jennings, Janet Mock to name a drop in the bucket of famous/well known/successful trans males-none of whom were famous before they co-opted "woman". Try again.

    7. I wonder who Ms. Aydian is... http://i.imgur.com/909xq8V.jpg it can't be the shortest and smallest, right?

      Delete
  2. P.S.: Notice how high and strained her voice seems in comparison to the smooth, deep, bass voices of the real men. I also can't help but notice how SHORT she is when standing next to them. I just don't know how anyone, after seeing that video, could think of Amy Dowling as being anything like Tim Boniface or any of the bio-males. And I wonder why I've been the only one to comment thus far?

  3. I think we're waiting for the trenders to attack because there is a real penis photo. And being told that showing a real penis is grounds for inciting dysphoria, cutting, and depression. So its the pause before the storm, waiting to hear how hateful it is to acknowledge real penises exist.

    1. I think the trans trender babydyke girls who want to be guys should see what a normal, only very slightly larger than average, penis looks like. Since some of them have actually posted here voicing the confused belief that a testosterone enlarged, half-inch long clit is just like a penis.

      Delete
    2. Considering that most trans men are bisexual or gay, I'll wager on average they are more familiar with penises than you lesbians are, and certainly a lot more comfortable with them.

      Aren't you terfs the ones who fear penises?

      Delete
    3. Hey anon at 11:23, lack of attraction =\= "fear" but thanks for falling back on that old lesbophobic trope.

      If FtTs (and MtTs) are so comfortable with normal, healthy genitalia, why are so many of you "triggered" just by the words vagina and penis, let alone the pictures. And like the anon above you stated, why do you insist on dishonest rhetoric like "no one knows what's in our pants"?

      Of course we know. If you're a female transsexual you either have an artificially enlarged clit or a prosethic rod jammed down there with skin grafted from some other part of your body to make it look "realistic".

      Neither of these are anything like a penis, nor is a male transexual's inverted dick anything like a vagina.

      Delete
    4. Even a "big", "hard" penis is actually a rather small, relatively soft, and very vulnerable part of a man's body. No rational person could fear it per se (though I acknowledge the same could be said of mice and spiders... ). What both women and (symbolically if not literally) "smaller-cocked men" may reasonably fear is the male power and violence for which it all too often stands (pun intended) in our culture.
      Similarly to you, Anon at 7:18, I am irritated by the suggestion that, as a gay man, I "fear vaginas". It's true that I think vaginas are "awesome": after all, like most people, I entered the world through one. An alien visiting our planet might think that fact alone should make all earthlings respond to the vagina with a respect (perhaps) even bordering on fear, but would find itself confronted with conflicting data.
      However, presented to me, in vivo or as an image in pornography, in order to excite my sexual interest, they leave me not fearful, but indifferent, like penises for you. We may as well show each other our elbows or knees (though I have no doubt there are fetishists whose excitation extends to those body-parts too!).
      How do you respond to fear? I curl up like a hedgehog, and hope the source of danger will go away. Not always a good strategy. It's well known that heterosexual men, not all, but more than women and gay men, respond to their fear with anger and violence. So who is afraid of vaginas? I think the moving finger points to them, not us.
      Consequently, who is afraid of penises? Not you, a lesbian, not me, a gay man. Heterosexual men sometimes purport to be horrified by the sight or touch of another man's penis, but if you believe what straight men say, then I'm praying for you. I leave you to draw your own conclusions, but you're as skilled in rhetoric as I, and can unpick my manipulation (-:

      P.S. Dirt's spellcheck underlines "vaginas" as an error, but not (I tried it) "vaginae". Contradictorily, it's happy with "penises", but not "penes". (Only of interest to lexicographers.)

  4. It would have been completely ridiculous if Amy Dowling had won the Men's Health Ultimate Guy competition.
    1. She is not a Man, and
    2. What doctors have done to her body via testosterone injections and surgery, is completely detrimental to achieving and maintaining good Health.

  5. Mobbing the vote by the internet - centric trans world virtual reality didn't work I guess.

    The juxtaposition of actual hard work and heart aching heroism, and "Aydian" sorting through fashions on a rack just didn't cut it.

    Note to trenders..before naming oneself it might be useful to know how vowels work.

  6. THANK YOU Men's Health Magazine for not caving and buying into the delusional trans narrative. "Aydian" is a female and so should never even have been considered for this award in the first place. I'm glad Men's Health didn't jump on the publicity bandwagon and give her the award, like ESPN did when they gave Brice Jenner an award despite the fact that there were more deserving nominees. ESPN clearly gave teh award to Jenner just to get more people to tune in to the televised awards.

    Now women need Glamour Magazine to do the right thing and give their Woman of the year award to an actual WOMAN, as there are rumors that Bruce Jenner will get that award. This magazine used to be a great source for teaching feminist ideas to young women -- but now they have caved to patriarchy and the trans narrative, if this rumor about Jenner turns out to be true.

    Apparently, men are allowed to stick to their guns and give their Men of the Year awards to men (good for them, at least), but women now must give away their own such awards to MEN. It is so sad and ridiculous, but I guess nothing new.

    Plain and simple, the Glamour award should go to a WOMAN. If they give the award to Jenner, I hope they get an earful of outrage from people all over the world.

  7. The 'Woman' that hetero autogynephiles attempt to "be" is their own strictured and shoulder bound tottering on disabling stillettos fantasy Barbie, that is superimposed on a masturbatory ideal and kink compulsion.
    She is Their Invention. She is not a human woman. She is not a free woman. A woman un adulterated, un modified, un captured.

    I'm sick of our inclusive Alphabet Soup of appropriating Straights with paraphilias and misogynistic brain death making themselves at home amongst a folk they once burned at the stake.
    Ok, kinky-too-much-time-on-your-hands straight people - you stole the word Queer - a word used to degrade generations of gay and lesbian children, co workers, neighbors, and dying young men, take it then. Take the word and go your entitled all-consuming way.

  8. Frankly I feel conflicted about the results of the Men's Health Magazine's real man/hero/bull crap award. While I agree some transgenders act as an angry hive, no friend to feminists or women in general, this stinks of the usual misogyny. The boys club wins again.

    Most obvious is the way Aydian's accomplishments are minimized, left bare, no attempt to embellish and raise into the land of heroism like the men's are.Seems like it was written by an intern, or by young Aydian herself.

    Confirming again that MtF's get the lion's share of sympathy, honor and good PR, hell, at the base of it all, celebrate male privilege. As a dyke of 63 years, I'm entirely sick of it.

    Kudos to Anon 6:07 and her brilliant assessment of the Barbie hetero autogynephiles. There needs to be more separation and recognition of this creepy kink fringe.

    Keep on sisters. I am.

  9. The fact that the clothing line is called .5cc, referring to the amount of testosterone most ftm take in a weekly injection, says it all right there. Why would men's health want to focus on something which is so unhealthy? Maybe name your clothing line after something other than your weekly injection. I would think if any of the other men showed pride in injecting testosterone in the same manner, the magazine would be less than enthusiastic.

  10. I'm not a transman. I'm a Butch Lesbian. And not a single increment of my strength, freedom or prowess depends on a trip to the pharmacy window at Walgreens.
    Oh, and what T shirt did I wear the day before yesterday? It was clean but other than that I have no idea.

  11. Not to say, but I'm just saying, the penis you choose as an example is itself deformed by (quite radical) circumcision.

  13. I am an ftm. I've been feeling very suicidal lately. I went on the Internet tonight in search of some help, instead I found this blog. After reading many articles I feel worse than ever. I'll never find relief. After I write this comment I'm going to kill myself. There's nothing left for me. I'm disgusting and I don't deserve to live.

    3. If you are a female who has bought into the transcult of suicidal threats as manipulation strategy, I suggest you keep reading this and other gender critical blogs by those of us who have survived by deprogramming ourselves. You can escape the insanity.

      But it's usually abusive M2T's who threaten suicide to silence women. I have a feeling you're another one of those, just here to stalk, mimic and threaten.

      Either way, get help. We are not the cause of your issues.

    1. Because high dosing a male hormone (testosterone) changes the brain into thinking its male.

    2. Sorry but I don't really understand what you're saying. Most transgenders seem to be women who were into men before they transitioned and are still into men after they transition and are on hormones, so why do you think they're all/most lesbians? That's what I'm trying to ask. I understand a lot of your points and agree with them but don't see what it has to do with lesbianism/being a dyke when most of them are not lesbians/dykes.

    4. I have not found that to be the case, Anon. It always seemed like the vast majority of FtM transgenders were in relationships with women before, during, and after transition. Only recently have I seen this ridiculous new concept of "gay transmen," which is stupid because there are more than enough "gays" in this world.

  16. The craziest thing I've ever seen is this person going by "Troy" (born Rebecca), who got her "chest reconstructive surgery" with CharlesAsher on YouTube in 2006. Well, not only did she go all the way to Serbia for metoidioplasty around 2009, but SHE STILLWASN'T SATISFIED with the "size" and has now destroyed her arm (her blog is even called destroy4phallo) in the name of phalloplasty, all for what?!?!?!? TO APPEAR AS A HOMOSEXUAL MALE?!?!?!? I have tried desperately to ask her why she would rather be a male HOMOSEXUAL than a gender-variant, heterosexual WOMAN, but of course, she has never replied.

  17. You can see tons of FtM's posting hopeful profiles on Butch Femme Matchmaker. Trying to catch a femme along with butch dukes. Can't tell if the majority of femmes prefer real lesbians, but it appears so by a quick estimation. Curious. I believe most FtM's are lesbian.

  18. I'm a Lesbian, but I find an audacity extraordinaire in appropriating a Gay Male persona, its deeply offensive to the historical and cultural resonance of being a Gay Man, and so much love and beauty and pain, that could never can't understood by mimicry and affectation. I even feel presumptuous with my own comment, as I say this.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gay men aren't gods. And the co-opting of their history and culture by trans trenders no more offensive then the erasure of females and lesbians, anon 11:03. But I do understand your outrage, turning all gay and lesbian experience into evidence of being "born into the wrong body". WTF?

    Its cartoonishly reductive, the ideology of Body Matching.
