First things first, I don't promote any unhealthy eating habits described in this post. I believe being overweight is not a good thing (as I was once overweight in my life and hated it), but I am only here to promote a double standard females set for themselves while contrasting it to other men

Body positivity is something that has been floating around with females and how you should feel comfortable in your own skin. The message itself was started by third of fourth wave feminism which I actually think is a good message. Being happy with yourself and your own skin makes you succeed more in life, as various studies conducted by experts in mental health have proven this. The message they created is a great message, but the problem then becomes the double standard.

When I was a male, I struggled with the same love for myself that women do, hating my weight and myself for it. I decided to lose weight so I could love myself again. This standard of body positivity could be applied to men as well (men who don't have toned abs, dark hair or blonde hair, etc.), but modern feminists yet again demean men for their weight while trying to hold us to the standard they want without holding themselves accountable as well. 

The lack of holding themselves to the same standards they want for others goes to prove that modern feminism is nothing more than the defamation of men so that women can be superior to their male counterparts, only proving that the ideas shared of this feminism are extremely dangerous, and how the ideas they share are double standards for themselves, but hey, since the Democrats run everything, you might as well just push the nonsensical bullshit legislation going on.

Can we get some examples, please?

Democrats are working on infrastructure and voting rights.  Republicans are (pretty much exclusively) working on banning transgender students from athletics (which violates your admiration of body positivity, no?) and recounting ballots from the last election.   Which is the nonsensical bullshit, would you say?

I take some issues with females, but mostly I have sex with them.

I can site examples through various social media outlets of females dehumanizing men on social media, but I will find some examples

In a TikTok video by @lllarsonmusic, he did a remix to Bella Porch's "Build a Bitch," discussing body positivity for females, and remixed it discussing body positivity for males, the video has over 155k negative comments such as one by the user @inara878: wow we cant have a song with men changing it to suit them, why am I not surprised

Or another by @mai_szu: I feel like some ppl are missing the point, the lyrics here aren't the problem, it's how he wrote over issues that women face and made it about men

These comment prove that they demonize a perfectly normal thing to meet their needs and cater to what they want, even if it means bringing men down and the issues they have. The double standards they set are ridiculous.

-----------------------

You can even look at corporations and how they are creating plus sized models for females, yet there aren't any for men, is there a reason for that or is it purely coincidence? 

the nonsensical bullshit legislation going on.

Looks like Oro beat me to commenting on this little gem.

Oh well.

In any event, we can strike a balance between girls (and all people) not engaging in psychologically destructive thought processes and behaviors; and encouraging people to be healthy and responsible about their weight. 

I think the so called body positivity movement has been very bad for girls and women alike.  Fat is not attractive and any suggestion to the contrary is dangerous and promotes irresponsible lifestyle choices.  Some people can't help it, true enough.  And the food the socioeconomically disenfranchised can afford often makes it impossible to maintain a healthy weight, which is something I'm sympathetic to.

But everyone should strive to be physically fit and healthy.  The alternative is dying of any one of the dozens of foreseeable health problems and/or complications associated with obesity, and living a life that's a lot harder than it has to be in the mean-time.  Of course, you also leave family and friends who care about you behind. 

That's the long-term cost of the so-called body positivity movement.   It encourages teenage and 20-something girls to develop unhealthy eating habits that will take them away from their families and kids before their time has come.

Not that- when did you stop being a male?

Don't use Tik Tok.  Tik Tok is a Chinese owned application that Donald Trump warned last fall of "credible evidence that leads him to believe that Tik Tok "threatens to impair the national security of the United States."  I agree that freedom of speech ought to prevent an outright ban but wise Americans should stay away from that shit, nevertheless.

Well, given the app's history I've got no reason to believe that these usernames reflect the average American woman's values or are even actual women, for that matter.  Could just be Chinese shit-stirrers.  You got any examples of actual American opinion writers, influencers, etc?

Here's a Cosmo article from a week ago called "13 plus size male models to follow *immediately*"

Non-responsive.  Is US infrastructure and the rights of US citizens to vote generally more important than big govt. telling schools which  team 1/100th of 1% of athletes may play for when both schools and athletes clearly  prefer to sort it out for themselves?

I would agree with this statement overall as I noted in post above, but if people do believe in this statement, there is an implicit female bias which I intended to point out

This is what I'd call a strawman - can I please get some foundational or representative fourth wave feminist literature or views that shares this "double standard"?

Hey!

I'm full on P.C. gender neutral.

This is all so offensive.


And stuff your face with all the pies

And be confident and happy.


And third wave fourth wave

Not waving but drowning

Who said that?

“With the incredible momentum in women’s sport right now, the re-designed space is just another demonstration of Nike’s commitment to inspiring and serving the female athlete”, says Sarah Hannah, Nike’s GM/VP for Women in EMEA.

Nike's new plus size mannequins and such do not feature any male plus size. If they really do believe in body positivity, why is it exclusive to females and not males

First of all - you didn't actually give me a valid answer:

How is Nike representative of feminism or foundational? It isn't.

Secondly.... are you daft? I'm serious - you do know what the plus sizes are right? They are LARGER SIZES, men literally already have it. This is what you have for me. really? You're sadder than I remembered.

I 'still feel bad I don't have abs.
Though I'm not despairing about it. (Not saying you are/were)

I agree, man or woman, people should be a bit more accepting of their own bodies,
Especially in relation to 'depictions of the ideal body.
In statues, film, comic books, models.

Be better to 'achieve such an ideal, certainly it's not good to be unhealthy.
Though 'looking healthy isn't always the same as 'being healthy.

And sure, I'm not one to harp about making oneself look perfect.
I'm not a fan of makeup or hair dye, or foppish clothing.
But it's true that one's appearance matters in society often.
How one presents themself.

Clean nails, no bedhead, zipper zipped.

I think post 3 violates the code of conduct and the guy who made the post says to DM him for only fans, so I reported it to you.

Yes, when extra extra large clothes are displayed there are larger mannequins, lmao. Again though, as I initially iterated, Nike is neither foundational nor representative of feminism (the fourth wave), so even if you did have a point. It would still be moot bud.

Okay, go to your local walmart or target and take a picture of a fat male mannequin.  I think you are lying. I can find fat female mannequins at Target, let's see if you can find the fat male models or mannequins wearing clothes there. Even the big and tall stores don't do that shit, but let's keep it simple.

Is mine a poem? I didn't write it, in that intent.
I'm a bit embarrassed to say I only glanced at yours, judged it to be in your usual style, abstruse/cryptic I'd call it, when it usually reaches my mind.
And judging it a bit off kilter to my mind, I didn't look into it, until your post #24

The meaning of yours I have to say escapes me a bit,
It's difficult online in general to see inflection, so it's a bit difficult for me to see if you are gender neutral or claiming to be for the poem, whether you take offense or mean it in jest.

I can appreciate telling people to live their lives, eat their pies,
Myself, I think it's better to live in moderation and a bit of exercise,
Though I'm not one to rag people, on it.

Third and Forth waves of feminism, I see the reference, but I'm not familiar enough with the movement to know anything of it.

by use of Google, I see Stevie Smith was a writer,
I looked up Not Waving but Drowning by Stevie Smith, interesting poem.

I didn't see anything that suggested Stevie Smith was transgender, but maybe I haven't read enough.
So the,
Stevie Smith
Stevie?
How's that for foresight.
Lines escape me.
