The above article is something that once again made me think there is often talk about the experiences females go through or have gone through, then eventually there is a little talk about what men have also experienced. I wonder how many more men keep quiet while wanting to shout out it happened to me too. Sorry bit heavy but the thought does cross my mind sometimes.
I do so agree. I had to argue this point at a lecture many years ago when a very strong feminist stated that only girls feel pressure on them to conform to a certain image. My son is extremely hairy, all over his body and as a teenager did not conform to the current androgynous boy band looks that still remain fashionable today. He felt extremely uncomfortable about taking his clothes off on the beach and exposing his Torso (not to mention legs). Fortunately adulthood and marriage gave him confidence in his own body and his own look.
