WEIGHT THOUGHT #2: Are dudes putting up with this as well?
I am very well aware of the fact that, just like women, many men are constantly bombarded with images of ‘toning-up,’ ‘manning-up,’ ‘pumping-up,’ and several other forms of ‘dude-broing-it-up’ with which I am not super familiar. I absolutely get that. But it serves to note that men, unlike women, are not even nearly nor as extremely advised to shrink their bodies down to minuscule sizes. Men inflate; we minimize. Both are horrible and hilarious in a cartoonish kind of way. ALL OF IT is very, very dumb and it’s even DUMBER to do anything about it but laugh your brains out. Laugh. Laugh at all the ridiculous people who are trying to snake money out of you by telling you need to look like a goddamned Disney character.
