A fashion blog calls out the fact that men are starting to feel as much pressure to have the “perfect body” as women do.
I’m always confused when I hear certain people complain that feminists don’t care about men’s issues, because I keep coming across heartfelt pieces like this one, a frank look at the body image issues men face, on a body-positive feminist fashion blog. My absolute favorite bit, from one of the comments:
The irony is: I don’t even like bodies like that, which makes me believe men might be telling the truth when they say they don’t care about perfect bodies on women, either.
There’s something so sweet about that, the admission of her own insecurities and the realization that yes, maybe she’s judging herself more harshly than others are, and maybe they’re are doing the same. It’s a tough realization for any of us to come to, that we are as beautiful in other people’s eyes as they are in ours.
