i've never heard a guy saying "i think they should change the appearance of He-Man"

Because, we only bitch about things if they have even a moderate amount of importance.

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.

Well I do cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed, so He-man isn't completely unrealistic...

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.

men dont form bitch groups, we shoulder our burdens and deal with our problems like men

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.

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.

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.

It's only because men can become like he-man through hard work and women won't work hard to achieve a barbie like body so they start bitching.

Actually we've been learning about this in my health class at school. The reason guys can get an image that, i guess you can say, is the stereotype of a guy through training and stuff like that. Now with girls its much more difficult to get a stereotype image for us. Dieting and eating disorders is what women do to either lose weight or be prettier. Besides, if Barbie was a real life person, she would have to walk on all fours because her body proportions are so messed up. Same with Ken.  fun fact, to be like ken you have to be 7 ft 8 in, add 7 in all around your chest, and add 4 in on each side of your neck

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.

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.

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.

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...
