word. Haha along came the vase and shit's changed! It literally didn't even occur to me to discuss male fatness in this thread, or to expect to see men. Very interesting.

because we have obviously rather deeply internalized that women are the ones to worry about fatness and that there is some divide between fat and not fat women on some existential level, but do not instinctively perceive, question, analyze, or discuss this in men. I think it is interesting also. I am glad that Mr/s Vase pointed it out.
Men are generally not called beautiful and most have far fewer issues with body image and the mental illnesses that can result from them.
Don't you think that sports is a good way for man body-issues people to escape their shame and such? Other traditional male outlet bullshit? Electronic pornography marathons?
Now that I think about it, women tend to treat body issues as vocal spokesperson jews treat racism.
Put up 10 pictures of fat dudes and most guys would laugh.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
