Default 20 inch natural arms

I keep insisting 20" arms aren't achievable naturally in a lean condition. I keep getting met with comments like this:

“20″ arms aren’t achievable naturally” are you a moron?
Still waiting for pics of 20 inch natural arms at 15% bodyfat and lower.

You mean that dude with 29 inch arms was not natural?

Not a moron, at least yet haha, in my book. Everyone tells me I have huge arms (I believe they are about 17 inches or so) and I am as natural as you can get, and not 15% BF - closer to likely 18-20%

Mine are a hair over 21", but I have triple the average person's bodyfat and the appearance doesn't change much from relaxed to flexed. They stay nice and smooth, lol. If I wasn't so heavy, they would probably be in the 15" range (just a guess).

I normally hate this phrase, but pics or it didn't happen. Period.

There is a huge difference between saying it may be possible and calling someone a moron. If you're gonna go the name calling route, you better be able to back it up, especially when you're talking to someone with as much experience in this field as Steve.

Should've ensured he knew which way he was supposed to be measuring them, not lengthwise

I'm with you, Soldier but the problem, then, would be the fact that there is no way to ever prove or disprove, definitively, that they were attained naturally. Give anyone on gear long enough and they can pass any drug test. If someone WAS able to do it naturally, they would just be accused of "cleaning up". I believe it will be a never-ending debate.
