I remember having a huge fight with a girl in art class over comic books. She said how horrible they were because the women all have huge boobs and that it was unrealistic and bad for women's self esteem. I just laughed and agreed because all the male super hero's are perfectly normal in size.

istic hardy stereotypes.
Because manly 'tatl. have he deal

I genuinely think porn comes into this.
And before you respond with "Huehue 'comes into' hear me out.
The majority of people who watch porn are guys.
The guys in porn are always totally ripped.
Surely that's influencing the average teen to think only the really good-looking guys get sex?

It's the same with TV shows, it's always the good-looking protagonist who gets the girl.

Well to be fair, I'm only interested in the woman. It might even be a bit aspirational with a chubby guy. A kind of 'If he can score I can' mentality might form.

I get what your trying to say but there is one small flaw, at least in comic books. When you see a woman in comics it is envisioned and drawn by a man (for the most part). Now that means that she is a male fantasy. The male characters were also envisioned and drawn by men. They are also a male fantasy. It is what a man sees as attractive to a woman not what a woman actually finds attractive. That doesn't mean that men don't have this problem (we totally do) it just isn't exactly a woman's fault.
#238 to #10 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]
well **** if that what men fin attractive for women then they are gonna have to look very long and hard and even if they find a chick like that good luck having her look his way twice.
User avatar #241 to #10 - whatsgoodyo (07/23/2013) [-]
You have to consider that the media is also telling you that these types of bodies are what women are attracted to. Whether or not it is a male envisioned or female envisioned fantasy, it is still projected onto men. Same goes for women.
#125 to #10 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]
But whose fault it is is entirely irrelevant. Furthermore, to say that it is all one gender doing it or another is false, because everyone perpetuates those stereotypes, male or female. Just look at the movie magic mike - woman ate that **** up - they were all perpetuating those ideas by doing so.
#311 to #125 - Rascal (07/23/2013) [-]
Might help your argument if you chose a movie actually directed by a woman.

Does't matter whether it's sexual or not. It only matters that it give kids an unrealistic perspective on body image. It doesn't ******* mean their dicks have to be hanging out.

it's always too easy to get lost in this arguments because you focus only on one extreme. You shouldn't forget the onslaught of female oriented manga almost purely female oriented (i.e. Yuri, jaoi and shoujo) in it's material that managed to shelve a lot of action male oriented manga. Here's an excerpt from one of the best interviews about how manga releases by companies such as dark horse are dictated by the market:
sauce: You need to login to view this link
I've added some explanations for easier reading
"manga has undergone a boom and recession in North America. The new shape has formed around a few blockbuster shounen titles (Naruto, One Piece, Bleach) and shelves of shoujo (younger female audience) and yaoi (male homosexual romance for a female audience).
This emphasis has not extended to older female audience josei titles, which maintain a slimmer representation in the market than seinen (male oriented).
While action shounen retains its commercial potential, varieties of shounen (Naruto, One Piece, Bleach) that don't fit into that model, as well as seinen (male oriented), have had difficult time clinging to the book shelves as the tide of the market receded.
In March 2007, Media Blasters ended publication of its shounen/seinen (male/boys oriented) titles, including Pilgrim Jäger, Apocalypse Zero, Baron Gong Battle, Kanunara: Rebirth of the Demon Slayer, and Flesh For The Beast, to focus on the distribution of yaoi (female oriented) titles.
DMP has undergone a similar process, shelving Worst, IWGP and Barbie and Her Pink Gun in favor of their yaoi (female oriented) titles. New publishers entering into the industry have similarly focused on shoujo,yaoi or both.
In eulogizing Blade of the Immortal, a work that is swimming up stream in the market's current, the intent of this piece is not simply to lament that a male dominated market has yielded to a female dominated one. "

so don't just bash, there's little for both sides out there
User avatar #219 to #16 - thewaronbeingcool (07/22/2013) [-]
I think it's less about sexualization for either gender and more about drawing the characters as idealised versions of masculinity and femininity, like Greek statues.

Only the thing is that most men like feminine women, whilst most women don't like hyper masculine men.
#17 to #16 - caseris (07/22/2013) [-]
One question, why would men want to become these big hulks of power if females don't find that attractive? Sure, bigger man can compete more easily with smaller men my smashing them, but in a world with limited physical violence isn't it better to just look like what she described?
#20 to #17 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]
That's the thing though, most women aren't into these unrealistically muscular dudes. To go back to comics, or at least comic movies for a minute, why do you think women were more into Loki than Thor?

Men being muscular is more about competing with other dudes, to be stronger, but most women aren't into super-strong dudes.
#143 to #20 - aceonfire (07/22/2013) [-]
actually, the majority of women that I know were more into Thor than Loki.
#177 to #143 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]

Actually there ARE girls who are into hulkanian dudes but mostly just for physical reasons (just like men do with big boobed high heeled easy girls)

Guys are kinda easier to get, if a guy find a girl hot, 90% of the male population would agree (considering it's not based around a personal fetish like BBW) however girls have more complex tastes even to physical apperance. Some of them will even mind your clothing choises more than your actual body.
#70 to #17 - neverforgetthedick (07/22/2013) [-]
Most men don't want to be Hulks. Almost every guy I know consider this to be the ideal body type. Lean and cut, not way to big or scrawny.

I guess it's really about the kind of person you are. Some guys aren't shallow and aren't looking for a girl just for beauty. The same applies to some girls. But for those who want to look better it's as simple as getting to the gym. Here is some motivation.

This photo is what I was shown on the first day by my personal trainer and he told me about it, explained to me what it really means. Those 5 seconds of each session were he reminds me that it is not me against the clock or anyone else in the room, is what really got me going in the gym. I have seen amazing results since i started and I must say, this picture is a great inspiration.

I have no problem with women in comic books being drawn as attractive and strong. Problem is most of the depictions of women are not very tastefully done... This picture of the Scarlet Witch is a good example of a tasteful comic book female... She's still sexy but there is attention to anatomy, she looks strong and not like a pair of giant tits with pencil arms.

Also, Dove Real Beauty Campaign is a bunch of ********* . They only care about making a profit just like any other corporation.
#234 to #218 - sketchysketchist (07/22/2013) [-]
**sketchysketchist rolled a random image posted in comment #2 at pausing is for casuals **
Though sometimes they screw up and do things like make Sue Storm make a hole in her super suit right where her boobs are at.
Same goes for power girl, but she was destined to be fap material and nothing more.

But in the end, the ones that get recognition are the ones with the most popular stories and personalities.
Best male hero is Superman or Batman depending on which's personality you like better, or spider-man if you're a marvel person.
And best female is wonder woman because she's the symbol of Woman power even though she started as a secretary in the Justice League for no reason other than her Vagina. .

Whoever made this clearly never actually read a deadpool comic. Not only is he the result of an experiment, which implicitely means that his body type is not refered to / set as a norm. But more importantly his entire body is basically one giant scar. Not exactly the pinnacle of beauty.

I say this btw as a big deadpool fan myself.
User avatar #138 - theaceofthespade (07/22/2013) [-]
The real thing to take away from this shouldn't be that there is some sort of competition. It's not "Take that women, we have unrealistic expectations thrust upon us and we're doing just fine!" or "You men just don't understand how different that is." It should be to recognize that we all have unrealistic expectations put upon us by society, and that we should work together to recognize them and the impact that they have on us, not as men and women, but as people.

Okay no.    
The argument is because women care about that, and compare themselves to others more often.   
And advertising and women's companies use that and take advantage.   
Guys really don't give a 			****		.    
We go "Oh wow that dude is ripped"   
and realize that its not 			*******		 normal.

Guys do give a **** , but the other part of our gender role is to not talk about it, make fun of people for being out of shape, and pretend we don't care about our appearance.
#91 to #85 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]
but little do you realize is that there are just as many men who care about appearance as women do. they may not come out and just say it, but they do exist. a lot more than you may think. we all have our own insecurities relative to appearance. for example, some of us worry about how big our dick is compared to everyone else. others might see a ripped dude and feel inferior as a result and want to change that. some of us even worry about how good our faces look. i can guarantee that most acne ridden, fat as **** guys with a 3 incher really do give a **** about it all.
User avatar #92 to #91 - thatkiddonovan (07/22/2013) [-]
No, we all care about our appearance, (or most of us do, or should anyway) but we realize unrealistic body image when we see it.

Like "That's not in my reach"
and it doesn't have to be.
#97 to #92 - Rascal (07/22/2013) [-]
i think that there are plenty of people who realize this, both men and women alike, but some people just don't understand that it's genetically impossible for them to look like any of those other people that they see.

so really i think that this can happen on both sides, but we usually only see women pulling this stupid **** . there still can be men who think like this too so it's not necessarily exclusive thought from women

Everyone has different tastes and everyone should just shut up about what's real beauty and just find someone who you find attractive and who finds you attractive and just **** .
Skinny guys, athletic guys, big beefy guys, chubby guys, feminine guys, masculine guys. If you exist, you are someone's fetish.
