this is female privilege
oh, hint: body image issues are framed as eating disorders and not exercise obsession. to be cynical, if people came out against the obsessive exercising men, there would be fewer uh... 'beefcakes' for women to drool over.

This is a good point, that our very definition of ‘body image’ is extremely narrow, and that male body image issues are often framed to be a non-issue. I know at least 5 men in my life right now that are taking dangerous drugs to help them build bigger muscles…… but I don’t know anyone in my life that would equate this clear self-harm with body image. Because they are men.
