Body positivity post!
This is something that is quite difficult for me to share considering I've had body insecurities for most of my adolescent and adult years, and it's always hard for me to take my clothes off in front of a camera.
So here, this is my meatsuit. I don't have a bodytype that men consider their "ideal body". I have a bit of a gut, I'm slightly underweight, I got stretch marks from racing up and down in weight, I have hundreds of scars from accidents, self-harm, surgeries and injuries. I get skin imperfections all the time and I struggle with rash and acne.
I do not have a perfect butt, rock hard pecks or a gladiator stomach. My arms do not have superhero male-fantasy biceps.
But every day I have to learn how to appreciate this meatsuit I've been given to exist on this mortal realm and try to accept that mine is unique, and that the beauty standards for male bodies are unrealistic and unachievable for most. They are created as unhealthy patriarchal ideals that make 'normal' looking men feel bad about themselves for not looking like Magic Mike.
Men, just like women, have the pressure of unrealistic beauty standards weighing them down, but also just like women, the standards that we are pressured by are created by men.
In a patriarchal society where toxic masculinity still is very much a real sickness, men are expected to follow ridiculous Hollywood beauty standards of looking like superhumans, and taught not to be vulnerable, not to cry and not to share feelings or thoughts considered to be "feminine".
Be proud of your bodies, no matter the shapes, sizes, forms or how many 'imperfections' you may have. Be kind to your meatsuit and stop looking at the cruel and unrealistic standards set by toxic ideals that expects men to be "superhuman".
We are only human after all and everyone is created differently.
So all men, whether you're born a man or found your male identity later in life: You are all beautiful. You all deserve to be appreciated, and there is nothing wrong with how your body looks.
I feel like wearing a crop top and jacket are counter productive, but oh well.
It’s Fall and Fall clothes make me happy. 🍂
i was chatting to one of the councillors at my school today and she was saying that whatever i need for the school to do to make it easier for me accessibility wise to just say the word or ask for help and honestly my school is pretty accessible overall for me. the biggest issue i have is being in pain or fatigued and that’s just my body that’s not something they can fix
Good morning ☀️
