It's never just been about girls. They just talk about it more, like they talk about everything more.

Are women fat-shaming, again?

I've got negative body image.

It happens to be completely justified.

The womenfolk are hard pressed not to agree.

mutterfark: Negative body image: it's not just for girls anymore

Was it ever?

[ image 488x722]

/couldn't find the "hey blubberpuss" one

A weakling weighing ninety-eight pounds
Will get sand in his face
When kicked to the ground
And soon in the gym
With a determined chin
The sweat from his pores
As he works for his cause
Will make him glisten
And gleam, and with massage
And just a little bit of steam
He'll be pink and quite clean

He'll be a strong man
Oh, honey!
But the wrong man

He'll eat nutritious, high protein
And swallow raw eggs
Try to build up his shoulders
His chest, arms, and legs
Such an effort
If he only knew of my plan
In just seven days
I can make you a man

He'll do press-ups and chin-ups
Do the snatch, clean, and jerk
He thinks dynamic tension
Must be hard work
Such strenuous living
I just don't understand
When in just seven days
Oh, baby
I can make you a man

HortusMatris: I never understood why men are expected to have hairless bodies.  To me body hair = masculine = sexy.  Why would you want to look like a polished Ken doll?

There's a limit, though. Apparently, there's a bit of difference between a guy with chest hair, and one that is occasionally mistaken for a sasquatch every time he goes hiking. I lovingly refer to my current state as "early Chewbacca"

Meanwhile in the Fark ad banner:

Yeah, how about we enourage everyone to be healthy, and not body-shame anyone?

Well He-Man is actually a body image worth looking up to.
A little too much muscle, but still physically in great shape.
Barbie looks like a wraith, with no muscle at all, and no ass or breasts.
Barbie's failure is that straight men don't find her attractive.

I shear my upper body occasionally just because it's more comfortable to be rocking berber instead of shag. Also moments like this at 26 seconds in.
