So I always see people defending a woman if someone says she's too fat or too skinny, or if someone says her boobs are too small, etc.
but how come I never see anyone defending men? You can't body shame against men? Like I always see girls calling a guy too short, or even talking about his dick being too small, saying he doesn't have any muscles. That's not bodyshaming?

Because we can take it.
You know, just because you get offended by someone doesn't mean everyone has to ACTIVELY COMPLAIN ABOUT IT.

Of course it is body shaming.
It's just that generally women are more sensitive about these issues.
Men are as well, but they are expected by society to "hold it in", "be tough", or "be strong".
If they complain the same way women do... then they'll be called "gay" or a "pussy".
They will pretty much be looked at as less of a man.
I think people should try the best to be themselves and not live up to the standards of society.
All of the images that are shown in the media are unrealistic.
Even the people promoting those types of beauty don't even look like that themselves.
Their photos are all edited to display a image that is far out of reach.4
