    The Real Truth About Stephen Takacs - Please read


    From JuiceAuthority @ Steroidology:

    Stephen Takacs threads

    Courtsey of So***eorge at EF. I feel like **** now...

    Juice

    Stephen Takacs threads - please read! (post #1)

    Guys, I just got off the phone with Stephen Takacs dad. This has to stop.

    Stephen is developmentally disabled with learning disablities. He is known to the people in the North East at the different bodybuilding competitions, and his father told me he is treated very kindly by the competitors and promoters. They understand his handicap and appreciate the sincerity of his dedication to the sport.

    In the last couple weeks (since Stephen's site was discovered by the internet community) Stephen has been flooded with very ugly emails. At first his dad tried to shield him from this, but last night he had to sit down and explain to Stephen what was going on. That must have been extremely hard for both Stephen and his dad. (His dad will be emailing me later tonight. I hope to be able to post his email some time later.)

    The entire situation is becoming very hurtful to Stephen's family. He is a handicapped kid who hasn't hurt anyone, yet he has become the subject of a great deal of ridicule and abuse. I would sincerely hope that everyone could have the decency and maturity to stop. This kid may not have as many advantages in this world as we all have, and he doesn't deserve to lose the things he enjoys. (His father finally explained to him what was going on after trying to shield him because he knew Stephen would be taking the stage in upcoming shows... and he didn't want him cat called and abused when he was on stage.)

    Stephen's father struck me as an intelligent, insightful, caring man who genuinely loves his son. I don't know if many of you can put yourself in his shoes for a few moments, but how would it make you feel if this was a member of your family? Someone you struggled to raise? Someone you were atually proud of because despite his handicap - he turned out a kind and decent person. That is the pain Stephen Takacs father is experiencing right now - and it is not deserved.

    (THERE ARE A LOT OF SITES RUNNING STEPHEN TAKACS THREADS. I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IF PEOPLE COULD CROSS POST THIS TO THOSE THREADS AND ASK THE MODS ON THOSE SITES TO HELP PUT A STOP TO THIS.)

    I got to give big props for Geared and the other mods for stoping the thread before anyone over here made the mistakes other boards did. I think many who say the posts, including myself, suspected something like this was behind Mr. Yakacs' site.

    Good job Fitnessgeared, you run a class ship. Not to ripping any other board, but good job.<IMG alt="" src="http://www.fitnessgeared.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border=0>

    Thats why I deleted that thread here, of course the original poster of that thread didnt mean it in any 'making fun' principles, just a shock, so no disrespect to the guy who posted that here, just rather avoid that BS....

    I'm glad that someone finally addressed it. You know, another thing - the guy doesn't look bad. I've seen alot of pictures of people on other boards without half the physique. You have to give him much props for his motivation and dedication to pumpin iron. He is a iron brother like the rest

    Yeah, Jerks!!

    On a separate note: There was a guy who competed in my second show in 2001.. He had just recovered from a head-on collision, and had to learn how to speak and walk again.. Sad, yet he did compete and place well..

    I look at guys/girls like that, and it makes me work harder knowing that they actually have limits, yet I complain about not weighing what I want...

    This sport is Equal Opportunity, I respect all who dare tame the steel to carve their physique into monsterous proportions..

    Well, I went and checked out Stephen Takacs's web site. Guy looks like he puts in the effort and has good results.

    It's a shame there are soooooo many buttholes out there that like to slam folks.

    Those buttholes are probably "wannabe" bodybuilders. All talk and no walk.

    That post went up at Anabloic Universe also. Many of our members have emailed Steven telling him he is doing a great job and to keep up the good work....

    I think that is an amazing idea and one would should all share .......

    Some arseholes will do anything to make others feel bad.
    This guy is doing ok - we can all see he has a way to go, but no further than anyone else. The only obstacles he has are the narrow minded ****s that this post is about.
    He has a better physique than most of the population, and I think that it scares some people - the fact that someone who has a handicap of any sort is prepared to get off their backside and do something; and in the process, make themselves better than the average guy is more than a lot of mindless fools can handle.
    Best of luck to him.
