I never really understood why we constantly talk about the impact that media images can have on a woman or young girl’s body image, but we never address it with men.
I do understand that women are suffering from eating disorders at alarming rates and are much more likely to permanently damage their body or die because of dysmorphia. I get that. I am not diminishing that in any way. But I think we need to recognize that it is difficult for men, and maybe in a lot more ways, but also maybe for different reasons.
