Paging Dr. NerdLove

Aug 1, 2019

Men feel immense pressure to look a particular way and they're breaking themselves, physically and psychically to try to get to reach those ideals.

As bodies are marketed to us as products and men are sold self-loathing, we have to ask: what does a REAL man look like?


  • How male celebrities are getting the body-shaming treatment from the media
  • Why the idea of what makes a "real" man is always in flux 
  • How the "perfect" body has changed over time
  • What men get wrong about trying to achieve the perfect body
  • Why there's no body positivity movement for men
