I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿MAN + MUSCLES = SEXY?







Bulging biceps, ripped abs, and a chiseled chest @ one
time these were the sexy attributes reserved for underwear advertisements. Now
that hyper-masculine vision of a well-defined body is used to sell everything
from beer to body wash, and that marketing has made an imprint on society's
vision of what is considered "hot."








Indeed, for many people, the ideal male
body is defined by the size and definition of a man’s muscles. Some could argue
that this attitude was popularized by gay male culture, which has always placed
high value on a person's face, fashion and physique. While there's no easy way
to prove that point—though we secretly adore the conspiracy theory-vibe to the
whole concept— it does raise a very important question: What kind of
message is this sending to young gay boys?







Body image issues have often been spotlighted in women, both
young and old alike, who are seeking to emulate the models and actresses they
see on magazine covers or in TV shows and movies, but with men being more
sexualized in the media, could
the equation of
 "man
+ muscles = sexy" be hurting gay teen boys as well?
