Don’t Typically Care

Two incidents over the last couple years that are actually insignificant were blown out of all proportion.

  1. A famous man who used to be considered the greatest athlete in the world was surgically shaped to look like a skinny woman and spent loads of money and time to do it and people laud him as a hero and champion of the human form.
  2. A non-famous woman with a fitness blog lost weight after her pregnancy (presumably via hard work) and challenged other women to care for their bodies and large numbers of people shamed her for challenging other women to exercise and for “endangering her baby” by exercising through her pregnancy.

Normally if a male idealizes skinny women, it is called objectifying or sexualizing women. But if a man looks like a skinny woman, then it is considered heroic.

I think that we live in bizarroworld.
