Are Manboobs Really So Bad?
I spent an entire party last year snickering with friends over a dancing queen's manboobs, which were visible through his clinging shirt, and afterward, I felt a teeny bit guilty about my behavior.
I mean, why are we so rigid about what a body should look like?
Aren't we being the bullies for demanding certain appearances from specific genders?
Manboobs--or "moobs"--can be a little bit sexy, especially since they tend to signify a giant "f**k you" to the world of gym-going and body fascism.
They're just a few hours' workout a day away from a "hot" male chest.
And face it--if they were on a woman, lots of people would be drooling their guts out over them.
So why not appreciate them on a man, too?
There's no good reason.
My feelings were confirmed by this website, which seems to have a healthy appreciation for manboobs--though if you scroll down on it, Ricardo Montalban in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is considerably less appealing than the monkey with low-hangers.
