I saw this pic a while back, and it did make me laugh at how absurd it came off when its applied to the opposite sex:

And I say that as a guy. So yeah, both sides have definitely fallen to double standards because its been ingrained as the norm.
Of course, I wasn't saying that men don't have body image pressures put on them, just that the difference between those pressures and the ones put on women are substantial, in response to a previous post that suggested that they were the same.

I'm sorry, what's that? I can't hear you over the sound of my deafening awesomeness.
