Stop the presses! Men have body-image issues, too!
Articles like this one are both encouraging and frustrating for me. It's great that someone is addressing this, but the "Believe it or not!" tone saddens me. This has been my reality for as long as I can remember, so the notion that most people wouldn't imagine it could possibly be true strikes me as ridiculous and a bit depressing. Nonetheless, better an article that paints it as a fresh new problem than no articles at all. (Want a real tour de force on the subject? Pick up William Leith's The Hungry Years.)
