You need more than your personal observations to back up your argument. We can play dueling anecdotes all you want, but that's not the way to make your case.

And besides, it's still all irrelevant if you're trying to make a case for your mythical "too manly" statement.
Review all the pics that I've posted here. Britney has big arms 'for a female'. My female friend that works out hard her arms spoke that it's very hard to a female to get arms like these whitout roids. And she's well experienced in weight lifting.

She has manly arms because she secretly had a baby and gave it up for adoption. Clearly.

Unless you go to a hardcore gym, I seriously doubt there are many, men and women, on steroids.

And what the hell is a natty girl?
I'm speaking professional crossfit girls take much longer time working hard those muscles that a singer like Britney. It is way easier to justify her buff frame because it's their life. As well as gymmnastics are working hard for eight years, you can't compare with peoples who are lifting weights 1 - 2 hours, like Britney.

natty = natural

Here in Brazil it's so common women taking steroids lol

Just checking - is that your citation? "My female friend that works out hard" is not a very reliable source.

And by the way, your friend is wrong. So we're back to square one.

You know who else had strong arms and a thick neck? Eva Braun!

For most of his career, Marshall was smaller than Britney, so a girl 2" taller who didn't look like a junkie would look pretty scary.

Not. She was an average woman.

Sure she did. In fact Hitler was so freaked out by her manly arms that rather than embrace her during sex he just held onto her pigtails.

You know who else needed things spelled out? Hitler.

Horrible speller. All those long German words, he just couldn't get 'em. Had to have someone travel with him just to spell words out for him. Before that, his memos were positively unreadable.

His interest in arms is well documented.
