Someone posted this little beauty on Facebook today…
I had two thoughts. 1) If women taking their clothes off is what it takes to make all women feel better about their body types…that may be the best “win/win” ever. 2) “Real” women are clearly out of my league.
But then I looked in the comments section and the male comments were divided into one of two groups. The first were obvious trolls/douche bags who kept calling the “real” women fat. They are hopeless pieces of crap who should just die already. The second were more “enlightened” guys who said how gross the Victoria Secret woman were because they were too skinny.
My question is, what makes the second group of guys any better than the first? They’re still hating on women based on their body type. They just picked a different body type. Is that what progress is supposed to be? Why can’t we be glad that there are twice as many women in their underwear in that picture than either of the two by themselves? We should just come together as guys and say, “Hey, these women have taken time out from their busy lives to come together and disrobe. We’re passing around a big ‘thank you’ card and we’re all gonna sign it.
…and don’t think you’re gonna do the ‘proud to be the first to sign in your crack’ joke because you can bet I beat you to it.”
Note to Dove: I have issues about my body type thanks to the media (and reality), but I never, NEVER need to see dudes in their underwear. I’m comfortable thinking of myself as less of a man due to my chicken legs and stomach flab. (Sorry ladies, I’m taken)
