Women’s rights, humanists, equalizers, whatever you want to call them. We’ve seen these words used often. Particularly “real”.
Maybe it’s the disgustingly hot summer weather I slept through last night, or being with out central air (like a brat, I know). Maybe it’s my life situation and I’m just cranky…..
But today, this ad pissed me off: real men underwear ads
Sure, photo shopping can suck a big you-know-what. Airbrushing is retarded. But…. I don’t read that hatred in these kinda of articles.
I read almost…. Fit shaming. Fit, skinny people aren’t real people somehow. People who work hard for their bodies to look a certain way aren’t “real”.
Point of the article? Perhaps not. Do ads often put unreal expectations on what looks good? Sure. But a chiseled body, or a skinny person is just as real and a representation of the human body.
So let’s use a different word maybe?
Or am I just cranky and selfishly enjoy the eye-candy male underwear ads in a way that says ” you’re what’s wrong with society”.
