"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."
Heads up guys. Body shaming doesn’t just happen to women. Recently, baseball player Prince Fielder stripped down for ESPN’s Body issue and here are the comments that accompanied. Now, I will acknowledge that these are all male contributes, but it’s still shining a light on fat shaming for men, and how athletes (and anyone who poses nude) are socially expected to be perfect.
I’m not going to downplay the amount of shit women get on their bodies, but I would like to point out that this made news today.
i’m tryna fuck…
People need to learn that athletes care about performance & abs are no indication of health, fitness, or performance. none. zero. In some sports having abs is not a great thing - it can be a sign of an athlete not eating enough to sustain performance, strength and recovery.
Fuck these assclowns for shaming a god damned athlete.
it reminds me of people fat shaming swimmers at london. swimmers who are doing super human feats in the pool. who are OLYMPIC athletes.
Fucking fitness industry twisting the perception of what fit looks like.
(Reblogging for the commentary on athletes and fat shaming, but this also speaks volumes for how sexist culture and the patriarchal power structure hurts men too, not just women.)

When she saw him time slowed to a stop. He was so perfect and she knew her life would never be the same because she had finally found him. The one. The first boy she would ever kill.

Happy 25th birthday, Daniel Jacob Radcliffe! (July 23, 1989)
The way he smiled.
THE WORST FEELING EVER IS WHEN YOURE SO ENTHUSIASTIC TELLING SOMEONE SOMETHING AND YOU CAN JUST PHYSICALLY FEEL THEM NOT CARING AT ALL SO YOU TRY HARDER BUT YOU JUST CANNOT GRASP THEIR ATTENTION SO YOU SLOWLY FADE OUT AND LET THEM GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO AND YOU WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR TAKING TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO TELL THEM SOMETHING YOU’RE HAPPY ABOUT
It’s a funny world we live in.
