I'm reading this book and came across a point that made me wonder: "Women are indeed unfairly compared to girls in magazines, in the media, what are we men unfairly compared to?"
There must be something. What do you think?
"What’s the fastest way to make a teenage girl depressed? Show her a fashion magazine. When she compares herself to all those air-brushed, collagen-enhanced, digitally altered supermodels, she is guaranteed to feel inferior or downright unattractive. And the rest of us are not that different. Thanks to evolution, our minds are now so sophisticated they can even dream up a fantasy of the person we’d like to be—and then compare our ‘real’ self to that impossible standard. What chance have we got? We will always end up feeling not good enough!"

Same thing for men...but due to male stubbornness and a don't-give-a-hoot attitude (by most men), we don't let it get under our skin.
The western media and society bombards you with what is the definition of what is a man. You need to be chiselled and ripped like the models in GQ with designer clothes or look like a greek demi-god or else you're just average schmuck. You need to be cool as RDJ or have the sex appeal of Channing Tatum. Women won't want you if you don't drive a BMW, wear axe body spear, wear an armani suit, make 6 figures, train like Michael Phelps and be loud and assertive.
