Why is it disgusting when some men only feels attracted to thin, pretty girls, but its perfectly fine for some women to refuse any man who isn't built like an NFL quarterback?

Which basically means that women can do everything, you can do nothing, and you can't say dick about it without being accused of "obstructing their rights."

I think the reason everyone get's pissed about barbie is because she is unhealthily underweight, If a human was that skinny it would actually be damaging to their health. If girls aspired to look like that it could cause eating disorders, etc.
With He-man, there is no potential health risks of looking like a hulking man-bear, so there's no problem with boys aspiring to look like that, whilst growing up

as men it is our duty to not give a ****
User avatar #48 - freddychavez (10/30/2013) [-]
I think it's mainly because they're both a male ideal fantasy
User avatar #53 to #48 - weenieandthebutt (10/30/2013) [-]
As if women don't have independent thoughts and aspire too look like that as well.
User avatar #66 to #53 - freddychavez (10/30/2013) [-]
Due to the fact that Barbie was created by a male, I'm going to leave it at that.
#46 - maybetroll (10/30/2013) [-]
well... honestly he-man doesn't look that unhealthy. A little overbuffed, sure, but that's an action hero for us to strive after (training, workout etc.). While striving to be like the barbie doll, you might train youself, but the doll is so sickly thin, you will think people who want to look like it more likely to simply stop eating, drinking only water or some other **** ... My point is: following those two "ideals" have different consequences for you health.
User avatar #47 to #46 - subaqueousreach (10/30/2013) [-]
While I don't entirely disagree with you, steroids have become commonplace for those who feel pressured by society to have the "Ideal Man Physique".

So yes, while you can work out and achieve a healthy physique naturally (and most people do), peer pressure forces many people to take short cuts that lead to health risks.

There are many ways to be a girl and achieve a sexy, healthy figure as well.

However the main point of the content is that women have just as many standards for the ideal man as men have for the ideal woman, and both are unfair standards to judge by.

Yeah but He-Man doesn't take steroids... HE HAS THE POWER OF GREY SKULL!

I can't help but feel like this isn't a double standard at all. IMO guys who look even remotely like he-man, you know the types - steroid monkeys who lift while eating a breakfast of nails and protein powder - are really unattractive, and I wouldn't expect any guy to look like that. But for a man to achieve that muscle mass is actually attainable. For a woman to try to look like barbie it would take a lot of body distortion and surgery and i'm pretty sure on an actual scale it isn't possible to look like barbie. Just my little soap box....
User avatar #59 to #44 - trystanvierra (10/30/2013) [-]
It's not exactly possible for men to do this healthily. It's just not. The only guys that look like him are body builders, and that's not exactly healthy.
User avatar #64 to #59 - mizzycupcakes (10/30/2013) [-]
Never said it was healthy. I just said it was attainable.
User avatar #67 to #64 - trystanvierra (10/31/2013) [-]
By that logic, Barbie's body is attainable too.
User avatar #68 to #67 - mizzycupcakes (10/31/2013) [-]
I said for him to reach that muscle mass is attainable. I've never seen him proportioned out like that have with a barbie, but I would say he looks like, idk maybe arnold schwartz or jay cutler. For a women to reach barbies proportions, like the length of her neck, legs, and torso, and even the width of the shoulders, there's no plastic surgery that could replicate that, at least as far as i'm aware. Maybe reread what I said originally
User avatar #69 to #68 - trystanvierra (10/31/2013) [-]
For some, being the size and shape of He-Man is attainable. for most it is not. Same with Barbie.

Well, thing is. Barbie gives girls an idea of how they're supposed to be and especially on how they are supposed to look. Everyone knows that someone who looks like Barbie, obviously has anorexia. But still, this gets into the mind of girls.   
   
He-Man isn't just there, like many other heroes, to look good. He-Man gets into adventures, defeats baddies and shows his personality (brave, kind etc.).   
   
TLDR: Barbie focuses primarely on a body image that isn't right and He-Man focuses on different things.

They're feminists. They deal with problems they perceive women to be facing, like body image issues caused by the stereotyping of a feminine physique.
If a lot of men had a problem with He-man, they would form a group, and they would bitch about He-man just like feminists bitch about Barbie.
User avatar #43 to #28 - sadistikal (10/30/2013) [-]
We don't form groups. We handle the issue like we were raised to handle every issue - suck it up and deal with it.
Also, we understand that it's just a cartoon and not a standard to which we have to live up to.
#32 to #28 - spacemasterfive (10/30/2013) [-]
men dont form bitch groups, we shoulder our burdens and deal with our problems like men
#36 to #32 - patmccrow (10/30/2013) [-]
As much as I want to agree... Justin Bieber, and other such examples are just too compelling of contrary evidence. Not of those things per se, but rather our (FunnyJunk's) response to these people. We literally have an entire forum for "hating".
User avatar #26 - cantfindausername (10/30/2013) [-]
I think the only person I might consider trying to look like would be Tyler Durden from that one movie that I'm not allowed to talk about.

I'm not going to lie. He was ******* sexy.
User avatar #27 to #26 - cantfindausername (10/30/2013) [-]
In the lean, muscley kind of way. Not the hair or face.
#25 - rulebysecrecy (10/30/2013) [-]
I dont get it, dont all us guys look like He-man?
User avatar #24 - RoyalNightmare (10/30/2013) [-]
It's not really a double standard. The unhealthy idealism around that body type for men is just as bad as the "Prim and Perky" stereotype for Barbie. However, men have not made a public issue about it, even though we've already determined that it has the same effect as young girls being led to believe Barbie is the ideal body type/lifestyle.

Neither give children positive or constructive aspirations, but women decided to let their voice be heard. Males don't have it any less bad, they just haven't spoken up.
#34 to #24 - tontosrevenge (10/30/2013) [-]
Some men do speak up. But then we are faced with ridicule for being so sensitive and complaining about it.
#41 to #34 - anonymous (10/30/2013) [-]
Isn't that mostly by other men?
User avatar #23 - Karibookiller (10/30/2013) [-]
Honestly men really don't feel societal pressure to be perfect like He-Man. It's probably more of a way of responding to that idea than any thing. Women are in some ways wired differently than men, and that might be why women feel more pressure to be perfect than men do. Or maybe it's because the way that men respond to that pressure is vastly different from women.
User avatar #20 - dancingdoggy ONLINE (10/30/2013) [-]
How is this a double standard? Feminists fight for women's rights... and that's it.
They won't actively fight for animal rights, gay rights, etc... so why would they fight for men's rights?
If they actually fought for all that stuff, they wouldn't be feminists any more... just people who like to fight for all rights. If men care about He-Man's image, then THEY should complain...
User avatar #31 to #20 - jagenblitz ONLINE (10/30/2013) [-]
Because feminists claim to be fighting for EQUALITY among men and women. Thus, they should be fighting for men's rights.

This is the usual bitching and moaning that comes with any sort of change.

Going to post what I commented when this was posted 10 days ago:

I'm just gonna go ahead and say that as a guy, I've never experienced anyone's expectations that I should look like He-Man or even close. The closest to that is probably the expectation that I should be averagely fit and healthy, otherwise it has never come in the way of anything (including women). I don't feel it compares to the expectations that are put on women in our society, when it comes to appearance and behaviour. That's just my opinion.
User avatar #54 to #18 - retardedboss (10/30/2013) [-]
The media portrays both men and women in the same light. Most people on tv or in movies are fit and pretty. It's not like they just go "let's have only really attractive women" "what about guys" "whatever". No, they have supper attractive men too. It's all about how society emphasizes. And for the most part there is a bigger emphasis on women, yes, but in the end, the emphasis is what an individual makes out of it. there are unrealistic standards for both men and women, but it would seem women care about it more.

I'm trying to say all this without sounding like I'm berating men OR women. I'm just saying how I see things. Feel free to disagree.
#52 to #18 - weenieandthebutt (10/30/2013) [-]
It's true that women are slightly more pressured than men to look prettier but it's not like we expect them to be at a supermodel standard. We just want them to be healthy slim, that's it. It's not like it requires to workout like an athlete or starve yourself like an African child. At least they should be grateful that that's the only thing they have to do in order to be attractive. Myself, I've got a fair set of muscles, I've got abs, I've got a hot body by female standards (even I've been molested on nightouts) but I still can't get a gf or laid to even save my life.
#49 to #18 - anonymous (10/30/2013) [-]
I suppose it varies but I constantly get comments from friends and family about how skinny I am and how I should get to a gym, it's not like I have anorexia but they expect me to have lots of muscle.
User avatar #17 - miltorky (10/30/2013) [-]
Well I do cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed, so He-man isn't completely unrealistic...
#13 - anonymous (10/30/2013) [-]
Are you frickin' serious? How about Barbie is meant to represent a normal woman (or the ideal normal woman while having an unrealistic body) and He-man is the most powerful man in the universe who defends the realm of eternia from skeletor. This argument is really ******* stupid.
#51 to #13 - anonymous (10/30/2013) [-]
I think that's the point, guys never really had a normal hero type thing growing up. All we had was action man, he-man and superman when all girls have is barbie but they're the ones complaining about unfair expectations. I'm not saying they can't just pointing out what I think the picture is saying
User avatar #12 - vissova (10/30/2013) [-]
To be fair, life must be pretty hard for some girls growing up. Constantly being pressured about how they look and whatnot. I'm a dude, so I could care less what I look like. But women must have it pretty hard sometimes.
