No, that would be Roman Catholics.

(NOTE: Spanish for condom is ''preservativo''. Whereas in English ''conservative'' and ''preservative'' are interchangeable. The possibilities for wordplay are limitless here.)

I really don´t like the idea of banning specific kinds of sports. All nations have different sport in which they are dominant or which have a long tradition.

In womens weightlifting you see a lot of athletes from countries in central asia or from east europe.

When you have the idea of banning this sport you think that your ideas of aesthetics is more important than the traditions from these countries.

A friend of mine had a physique which would never have allowed her to be a figure skater or a gymnast. So she started shot put and javelin.

Should I tell her, "well there is some guy from an internet forum who thinks that you shouln´t practice your sport because he doesn´t like the aesthetics"?

Are you some kind of 90 pound weakling that you are afraid of a guy who can lift weights.

Explains y u r a Fed fan over Nadal I guess.

I doubt any little girls grow up dreaming of becoming fat muscular weighlifting champions, most are probably poor girls in dictatorships handchosen by some fat state bureocrat to create future medalists and propaganda tools for the state in big competitions.

You really think a little girl starting lifting weights do so because of free choise? Count how many girls come from western countries next time you watch weighlifting.
