This is really important to me, and I can say with 100% certainty it affects a HUGE number of other men out there, whether they want to admit it or not.
Since lately I’ve seen a lot of body positivity posts for females, I thought that this was something that desperately needed to be brought up for men.
When a woman is overweight, they start a campaign to tell them “You’re beautiful the way you are.”
Hey, if you’re a male, I have something to say to you.
You’re beautiful the way you are. Don’t ever let a woman tell you that you aren’t good enough.
For the women reading, I’ve found from the times that I brought the topic up with my females friends, many women VASTLY underestimate the impact this has on a man’s self esteem. So I’m going to lay a few things out here to shine a light on the issue of penis size.
Something very important to note here is the mention of advertising. Don’t go blaming this on some bullshit patriarchy either. If there were a system designed by men to make them seem empowered, the last thing that they would want it to do is make them feel like that power is dependent upon something they can’t control, a.k.a the size of their member. This advertising is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE. And it’s found the most on porn sites. If you have watched porn before, you’ve likely seen something along the lines of the images above.
This one also brings up some good points about how men are judged/feel like they are judged based on their performance.
A shorter article, but it touches up on the fact that there isn’t really a proven, safe method to alter size. Not that any man should feel a need to change his size in the first place.
And this is literally not even the tip of the iceberg. The issue is so trivialized by society that it’s in daily speech and common expressions.
"It’s just a joke" So are rape jokes. Fat jokes. Sexist jokes. Racist jokes. Made my point yet?
Yeah I thought so.
I’d like to end this off on a happier note though, so here’s a story about a man who showed Boston that anyone can be proud of their size:
Normally I know asking people to reblog is stupid, but if this can even reach the eyes of 100 men and make them feel better about themselves, or influence the minds of 100 women, I’d be happy I made a difference.
Remember guys: You are beautiful JUST the way you are.
