How come there's always "body positivity" for women's bodies but not for men? How come you're cancelled and "disgusting" if you dare tell a woman her body is unattractive but you're applauded and considered "funny" if you make fun of a man's body?
Is it bc women think all middle aged men are "sexist pigs"? Welllllll that's a load of shite and it's unfair to the guys who put up with the mockery and violation of their bodies on a regular.
So here's my appreciation of older men's bodies.
1. Being older comes with health issues
Hitting the gym to get a model type muscular bod isn't as easy as clapping your hands and voila! Yeah, no. Toned and slight muscle with some flab is usually the results they're seeing after months of hard work. And guess what? That's perfectly fine. Just like you don't see 50 year old women walking around looking like this:

Yup, a normal body for an older man. Crazy right? No.
So stop shaming men for their bodies, and if you actually expect them to worship yours while you belittle them
My boyfriend is what I'd call "slim thick". He's in shape but has some jiggles here and there and I love it. He's been self conscious about his belly that doesn't even protrude, just bc it has some flab to it. But there's no reason to be ashamed of that, especially at his age.
So next time you're thinking about shaming an older guy who isn't even morbidly obese
