In another blog, the discussion was brought up whether makeup means success. When most people think of objectifying body image, they usually think of woman . Recently though there has been a series of different memes relating to the subject of men's bodies and what the trend is now. Some people stand behind dad bods and some stay with the time old image of a guy with washboard abs.
For many years woman have been judged for not being skinny enough or being too skinny. Different trends come and go body shape and size. In most cases men's body size and shape has stayed relatively the same; tall, skinny, and muscular. Now people are testing the boundaries arguing dad bods are in and six packs are out. In case someone didn't know dad bods are classified someone who isn't trying to impress girl's anymore and have let themselves go, to an extent. A slight belly, strong but not toned, and looks they have fathered a child, hence the term dad bod. As urban dictionary put it "if human bodies were sea mammals, dad bod would be more like a grazing manatee than a speedy dolphin."
What's your opinion on this? Do you think it is weird dad bods are in trend? Should men have the same physical standards as women? Does this new idea of how men look represent the upcoming generations idea on body image?
