The Pornographication of Fitness Needs to Stop

Fitness magazines don’t help us get fit. Gazing at images of caricatured breasts, buttocks and biceps gives you the impression this is how a fit body should look, that every fit body needs to be shaped in the same vein. Fitness magazines use exactly these images to “inspire” women to look this way. Yet most of us can’t identify with what we are looking at because we don’t believe ordinary us could ever be them. 

[…] What are we teaching our young women who want desperately to believe that they too can be as ripped and shredded? They don’t realize what it takes to look so tight. They want to be there and harm themselves to reach an almost unattainable ideal. When will it be acceptable to lift heavy, building confidence and brainpower while strengthening your body, not concerning yourself with how cute your bottom looks in booty shorts?

[…] Being fit in a functional rather than sexual way means you are entirely capable of being powerful no matter what your height, bust size, shoe size or hair color. You are empowered from the depths of your DNA because you did the work, you earned your place and you walk confidently because of it. A functionally fit You welcomes all sizes, shapes and colors, your boobs and butt are incidental. What we really need to build in the gym is a sense of self and what we are capable of.

!!! But add boys/men

No.

We’re talking about women right now. 

Or we can talk about everybody because there’s an unrealistic expectation for men as well as women

A word to everyone who reblogs posts with responses like the above:

If you actually cared about men’s issues, you wouldn’t tack them on as an afterthought to a woman’s conversation: You’d instead be actively engaging in dialogues that explore the nuances of men’s problems in society. You wouldn’t simply wait until a woman is speaking and then shout “Yeah, men too!” You’d talk about these things independently and give men the attention that they deserve as individuals, instead of waiting for a woman to do the work, shouldering her aside and then insisting that men be given a spot on the stage too. 

If you actually cared about women’s issues, you wouldn’t demand that they give up their space. You’d recognize that conversations by women and about women are perfectly valid. When a woman is talking about her personal experiences and the way social pressures have affected her life, you wouldn’t allow her to be interrupted or derailed. You wouldn’t actively talk over her or steal away attention, focusing on issues that are outside of her point, until the conversation drifts so far away that you aren’t even discussing women anymore. 

So both now and in the future, my answer here is going to remain the same: Can we talk about everyone?

No.

We’re still talking about women right now.

I would agree with this- except- where was this sentiment when men’s nudes got leaked? Where was the outcry? Where was the sympathy? oh, right. There wasn’t any. You can’t have it both ways.

-the Polish one

That’s because the men aren’t being called sluts and whores. The comments on their pictures aren’t about rape. The men aren’t being stigmatized, they’re getting a little laugh and this won’t affect people’s perspective of them. All the women who have had their nudes released are going to have the public’s view of them forever changed.

Cis men’s nudes barely make the news like l o l i remember when one of those twin dudes’ nudes got leaked and
all i saw was support and the woman who leaked them was vilified (as she should have been, i am not questioning that), but i literally saw no one saying “he was asking for it” or “maybe he shouldn’t have taken the photos”. Like cis men get sympathy when their nudes are leaked, or even congratulations on their bodies, women get shamed and stigmatized and blamed for it. Like l o l how about no on the making excuses not to have sympathy, oh but lo and behold it’s an anti-social justice blog, so i’m not entirely surprised that they’re finding excuses not to give a shit about other human beings.
