hum…. what you think?
Always see “real women” posts so here’s one for the dudes.
this says so much. I wish there were more posts like this. please.
body positivity and realistic body standards are important for guys too!
Men are constantly reassured that it’s okay to oogle women and harrass them about their looks. Women rarely see sexualized images of men that are made for women.
Guys get eye candy everywhere they go. Their sexual gaze is constantly catered to. Women, at least hetero women, are rarely given the opportunity to have their sexual interest entertained. We’re told that we should be okay with having nothing to look at. That our fantasies don’t matter. That we shouldn’t ever even remotely expect to be able to eyeball a svelte man in public, only behind closed doors and heaven forbid that the man look vulnerable. So we finally get to see images that turn us on and people are like, “Hey, you can’t put that in magazines! that might hurt some little boy’s feelings!”
Men are given alternative physical images to aspire to. Women are not.
While yes, guys should be treated to body positivity too… they already are. Just watch TV or any comedy and count the number of pudgy, out of shape, male leads vs pudgy, out of shape female leads. Or the number of hairy, overweight, older men making block buster movies vs the number of hairy, overweight, older women. Now count how many times that male character has some incredibly smart, sexy wife who does everything for him. And then how many times she’s the butt of the joke when he gets hot for some woman who’s younger and thinner than she is.
Fuck, just look at the responses to women not shaving their legs vs the responses to guys not shaving off their stubble.
Name six movies about a woman above the age of forty who’s love interest is a man that’s younger than she is where the plot doesn’t revolve around her being the butt of a cougar or mom joke. Now name me six where a man over the age of forty’s love interest is a woman who’s significantly younger than he is. Bonus points for action movies where anyone in the movie makes a mention of the age difference.
How many times are male politician or CEO’s body or style of dress put into question? How many times are female’s? Or has everyone forgotten how we flip out when the president’s wife gets a new hair cut? Or how Hillary Clinton had to have a FUCKING MAKE OVER before the news agencies took her seriously? How many times was her daughter raked over the coals for looking like an average teenager?
What’s more, I’ve never heard any of my female friends or my mother and her female friends saying, “Why can’t my 50 year old husband get a six pack like that?” What I USUALLY here is “I wish my husband would get a nice hair cut.” or “I wish he’d wear some nicer clothes that actually fit him.”
But what i hear overhear men saying all time is, “No fat chicks!” or “I wish my wife had bigger boobs.”
I know a woman who’s husband threatened to leave her if she didn’t get a face lift and a boob job- she was so upset that she did it. She felt disgusting every day because she wasn’t a size six and he expected her to be a size six after bearing him four kids. My own uncle said if his wife got overweight that he’d drag her behind a car until she lost weight. These aren’t even “bad guys”! They seem like perfectly nice men when you meet them! But they’re taught from the moment they’re kids that all women need to be a certain body type to be worthy of any attention.
Men are told through our culture’s stories and media that a woman will still love them unconditionally and throw themselves at them if they’re fat, old, balding, or an asshole, while women are told that if they’re pushy, fat, old or wearing out of style clothes that they aren’t even worth mentioning.
I was just going to bold the good parts , so I bolded the whole thing lol.
Alright. This post pisses me right the fuck off. You missed the entire fucking point of the original post. Yes, I admit that females in general are more pressured to have good bodies and what not. Yes, I’m not arguing that fact. HOWEVER that does not entitle you to SHIT ON a body positive post for men. How DARE you?
This post isn’t only saying that men have body issues or that men have it worse. This is mainly saying “Hey, dudes, you don’t look bad because you aren’t jacked.”
Are you a male? No, don’t answer that because I’ve already taken the liberty to check. You aren’t and that is blatantly obvious in your post. You have no right saying how bad male body image issues are or aren’t same as I have no right to do the same to women’s body issues.
I’m good looking. I hate saying this because it makes me feel conceded, but I am. I’m on the skinny side and sometimes could be argued maybe a little too skinny. You know how many fucking times I look at my own body and feel like absolute shit since I’m not jacked up to all fucking hell? It’s constantly reinforced for men that to look good you have to be jacked and muscular to be considered attractive. Oh, what do I know though, I’m only a fucking guy. OBVIOUSLY the women know more about how I feel about my own body than I do.
Yes. We do see a lot of fat, overweight, hairy and arguably unattractive men in media with hot wives or whatever. HOWEVER that isn’t considered attractive and nor is it pushed that that’s attractive and fine. No. Rather all the attractive men are saved for advertisements for sports gear or whatever the fuck uses men to advertise. (And don’t even get me started on “professional” gay porn and how THAT could severely affect the attitudes of men who watch it. I feel like I have to include this because THERE IS A MAJOR BODY IMAGE ISSUE THERE AS WELL.I don’t know about straight porn since I don’t watch it and don’t plan on making any assumptions.)
There are plenty of women positive body posts out there on tumblr and one of the few that men have you have to fucking butcher and tear apart like it’s MORALLY FUCKING WRONG FOR GUYS TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES.
Get your fucking hate off this post. You have no right to say you know how men feel about their bodies and to trivialize this post to “men whining” or whatever fucking motivated you to post that spew of garbage in the first place. You would be up in arms if someone did the same to a female body positive post or any female related issue so stop being a fucking hypocrite and save your hate for issues that really deserve it.
