You were saying?
The fact of the matter is that BOTH genders are sexualized in advertisements a great deal- it’s the media telling us how we should look….
Women are definitely objectified more than men. However, men are beginning to face a lot more social pressure than they used to. Right now, there is an enormous amount of pressure for men to get six-pack abs and large biceps. A record amount of males in middle school and high school are now taking steroids to make themselves more muscular. At this point, both males and females are suffering equally from body image pressure. And it’s likely that depression and anxiety disorders will be on the rise because of it.
