They have eating disorders due to mental illnesses not due to who isn't attracted to them.
@RandomLoser It is true that eating disorders are mental illnesses, but you realize that external factors contribute to mental illness, right? Like depression is a mental illness too, but it usually doesn't just come out of nowhere.If pressure to appease the gender of interest has nothing to do with it, why are gay men more likely to have body image issues, while gay women are less likely to have body image issues? Sounds like a pretty strange coincidence to me. www.impactprogram.org/.../
Note: I'm not saying the only reason people get body image issues is that they want to attract men, just that being judged by men is a contributing factor to the reason body image issues are more common among gay/bi men and bi/straight women than straight men and lesbians.
And external factors might just be they get bullied in general. Or they're simply more sensitive and have thin skin.Straight/bi women don't care about being sexually attractive to men. In fact it's the opposite. They don't want to be sexually objectified by men. The male gaze and the male lust disgusts them, it's not something they seem it's something they want to avoid.
@RandomLoser there's a difference between being sexually attractive and sexually objectified.You think lesbians are bullied less than straight women?
Sexually objectified and sexually attractive are the exact same thing. It's when the guy gets thoughts about having sex with you.Lesbians don't get bullied less they just might have thicker skin. I read that lesbians have male brains and gays have female brains.
@RandomLoser oh okay so you're a troll. Got it.
What's the difference between being sexually attractive and being sexually objectified?

Tell that to all the women who get pressured by their boyfriends to get breast augmentations.
In my experience, if you ask a girl why she doesn't like another's looks, she has a detailed explanation. I might not agree with it (usually I don't), but it seems more nuanced than the hubba-bubba stuff I usually get from guys who are straight.
