The only way people will stop complaining about Affleck is if he and Cavill do this in the movie,

Great article on body image and what it takes to become a big budget male action star.

This movie is doomed, since Affleck will look like Jack Black in Tropic Thunder.

Interesting article, especially the area about stars especially those over 40 turning to testosterone and HGH treatments to help build muscle.

I thought the article was a good read. I've talked to my sister about how much male bodies have changed on screen in the last decade, how men are starting to see what women have had to go through like forever.

What women have had to go through? No one forced them to do it.

This argument holds no water to me. Perfect and unreasonably beautiful women are a male fantasy. Super ripped male heroes are also a male fantasy. In no way did they design He-Man to look like that to appeal to girls. It's completely inacccurate to say that men have the same body image pressures put on them as women do.

While I agree to some extent, I would also say you should tell that to the girls lined up outside of Abercrombie and Fitch getting pictures with the shirtless models that great them.

I'm not saying woman don't like attractive, muscular guys. Of course they do. But, for instance, the reason why male superheroes are extremely muscular in comics has nothing to do with appealing to women.

Very valid point.

Speaking of that, I've actually read that the rate of steroid abuse among gay male teens is incredibly higher compared to straight male teens and that probably plays into your point there.

Well I didn't really mean it like that, I don't think the way He-Man for example was designed has anything to do with sexual attractiveness, but more to do with being a male power fantasy. Characters are designed like this to make men feel more powerful.

I can't speak with 100% authority on this but in the instance I described, is that some gay teens feel more pressure to live up to the perceived ideal male beauty standard that other males have.

But surely we should not ignore how male leads in particular have been sexually glorified thanks to their picturesque physiques. You may have a point in cartoons and comics, but outside those mediums the female demographic is most assuredly being targeted as well.

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.
