men in make up

Men and Eating Disorders

The National Alliance on Mental Illness states, “Statistically, teenage girls and young women are more likely to have eating disorders, but unlike men, they are more likely to seek and receive help.” A lot of young men, according to Dr. Donald Erwin Ph.D., say to him, “I can’t tell anybody I’m anorexic. That’s weird. They’re going to think I’m gay.” Dr. Erwin has had a 45 year old male physician with anorexia and a 71 year old male Vietnam veteran with bulimia. Both men feel like they cannot tell anyone and are afraid to tell anyone because they think people will think they are making it up or are crazy.

Why are men so terrified to come forward about having an eating disorder? Why is it “weird” for a man to have anorexia?

Because society expects men to live up to its standard of masculinity which includes being unfailingly stable, strong, insensitive and unaffected by emotions. According to Eating Disorders in Men: Underdiagnosed, Undertreated, and Misunderstood, “Men are not supposed to be emotionally vulnerable in our present culture, yet they encounter pressures on a daily basis to be more muscular and meet the current male body shape ideals,” (Strother, 353).

If the pressure to meet society’s expectations in regards to physical appearance impacts women as well as men, how can we expect men to remain unfazed by these images? We cannot. Nor can we tell men that they are immune to eating disorders because having a mental illness conflicts with the set of predetermined standards for them they are supposed to conform to.

For men, coming out about an eating disorder and attempting to get support for it entails discrimination because their illness disallows them from being “masculine.” Eating Disorders in Men: Underdiagnosed, Undertreated, and Misunderstood argues that, “Encouragement of a culture which allows for male vulnerability” (Strother, 353) is essential in developing a comfortable environment where men are encouraged to want to seek help for their eating disorder.

The same article also stresses that awareness is crucial is promoting such an environment (Strother, 353). About eating disorder in general, Dr. Erwin states, “I think it is important to increase awareness, but not only awareness but understanding exactly what eating disorders are.”

An understanding of exactly what eating disorders are helps develop an understanding of why the unrealistic and unattainable images of women and men’s bodies is toxic because it has a negative impact on body image and self-esteem.

'X-Men' Producer on Phoenix Saga Rumors and Making Up for 'The Last Stand'

Simon Kinberg says he wouldn’t be daunted by the budget if he is chosen to direct: “I’ve been around movies of this scale for over a decade now.”

'X-Men' Producer on Phoenix Saga Rumors and Making Up for 'The Last Stand'

The Dark Phoenix Saga is expected to make its way back to the big screen, with longtime X-Men writer-producer Simon Kinberg considered the top contender to step into the director’s chair for 20th Century Fox.

Kinberg, who insists reports that he will direct are “premature,” told Heat Vision on the carpet for a New York premiere of Logan that he does have a few thoughts on how things could go.

“I’m a huge fan of The Dark Phoenix story, and I felt like there was a lot that we didn’t do in X-Men: The Last Stand, which was based on the Phoenix story. [Things] that if we were so lucky to get another chance, we would do differently,” Kinberg said.

Kinberg co-wrote wrote 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand, which saw director Bryan Singer exit the director’s chair and Brett Ratner take his place. It made moves such as Jean Grey/Phoenix (Famke Janssen) killing Prof. X (Patrick Stewart) and Cyclops (James Marsden), with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) eventually killing Phoenix to stop her rampage. The film was so controversial that 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past (also written by Kinberg) essentially erased it from the X-Men movie timeline. 

In the comics, a space-adventure aspect was a key part of the Dark Phoenix Saga, while The Last Stand was Earthbound. The classic comics storyline sees Jean become the host for the Phoenix Force, a cosmic entity that eventually drives her to becoming a destructive force that ultimately leads to her death. 

Kinberg has never directed, but says if he were to step into the job, he wouldn’t be daunted by the scope and budget of an X-Men movie for a first project. 

“I’ve been around movies of this scale for over a decade now. The first movie I ever worked on was Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It’s five X-Men movies in, and there's The Martian. I’ve been around big movies,” he said. “To me, what would be new about directing would be having more creative control than I do, as I did as a writer, and even as I do as a writer-producer.”

Regardless if he directs, Kinberg already has a full plate as a producer. He is in casting mode for Deadpool 2 and doing prep on X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

Sophie Turner played Jean Grey in last summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and is expected to reprise the role.

Spoilers for Friday, February 24 promise that things are getting kicked up a notch in Port Charles! Dead bodies are being dug up and others are sneaking into unsuspecting hospital rooms – what the heck could be next? We’ll find out here.

In the Know
Jason (Billy Miller) has shared what he’s learned about Julian’s sister Olivia with Curtis (Donnell Turner). It’s obvious that if she’s alive, she would be dangerous enough to have pulled Julian’s strings and caused the bombing that cost Morgan his life.

Spoilers reveal that the two men make a startling revelation when they dig up Olivia’s grave. Do they finally have the proof needed to show that she is still alive? More importantly, will Jason realize Sam’s in danger?

Love is Strength
Sam (Kelly Monaco) is lying at the bottom of the bridge after she went against her crazy Aunt Olivia (Tonja Walker). As she lies in the snow, trying to hold on, she finds strength in her unborn child. Will Jason find her in time?

Anger Builds
Speaking of Sam, she seems to be all that is on Julian’s (William deVry) mind, and he knows what he has to do to get her back. Unfortunately, it’s an almost impossible task. To that end, Laura (Genie Francis) becomes a pawn in Julian’s game.

Desperate to get the board, of which Laura is a member, Julian does everything he can to get the votes he needs. He knows if he doesn’t, he might never see his daughter Sam again.

Second Thoughts
Nina (Michelle Stafford) was once again feeling threatened by Anna (Finola Hughes) since Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) paid her yet another visit.

That insecurity made her call the police to report Anna’s breaking into their home. When Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) shows up to ask about the complaint, Nina appears to regrets her actions.

But will it be too little too late in Valentin’s eyes? Speaking of Anna, someone sneaks into her room holding scissors – has Olivia decided to revisit her favorite enemy?

Addicted to Zen
Finn (Michael Easton) continues to be ruled by the withdrawal he’s feeling after stopping Zen Zen. It makes him behave in ways he wouldn’t otherwise. He finds himself alienating Hayden (Rebecca Budig), which is a shame since she could be his greatest asset. #GH

i. god bless the man who believes that a womans occupation on earth is to fulfill his every desire.

ii. “what a waste of a pretty face”- i’ve heard it too many times and it makes me gag. maybe i gave up on men after i was handled like an object and thrown around but let me make something clear- one thing i can say to this day is that your hand across my face still cant waver my opinion of the creature you are. but maybe, just MAYBE i discovered and accepted myself, even if it meant losing respect in a room full of testosterone.  

iii. its never been easy to watch children as they pass by and point at us for holding hands {god, just let me love her without all the stares} maybe the hardest part is glancing back and realizing that their parents jerked them out of our sight- oh is this a sensitive subject for you? equality? is love hard for you to understand?

iv.  so help me god, do you know how hard it is to sit at a table and have to hold back tears when my grandmother asks if i’ve met someone yet? yes grandma i have and i know you would love her but nothing comes out and my head is begging for acceptance.

v. “when are you picking out your prom dress?” my mom mutters- mom, i think ill take an extra shift at work that night, prom is stupid. jesus, its not and i found the dress but i cant face those people and stunning gowns followed by clean cut tuxes. i should go right? so they can all stare and ask if shes my sister or maybe my cousin. PSA: no im in love with her and after this ill probably wind up in her bed. 

vi. god bless every one who has to battle sexuality because the bible says in bold letters than men and women are the only righteous duo. god bless every girl and boy who dies on the inside trying to sputter out the words mom-dad, {“i’m gay”} 

vii. god bless the people who stare too long and don’t understand the importance of sacrificing respect for inner freedom. but most of all god bless anyone who lives a life of confusion because they are afraid that theyll be viewed as insignificant for their act of bravery. 

viii. i am not less worthy of human rights because i dont find comfort in lying next to a man. and he is no less of a man for loving another man. we are not underdogs and we’re tired of being glued to the label “homesexuals.” can you just call us people from now on?

Found him. His name is Ink, in the comics he has many tattoos that give him powers, but in the movies he had only one in his forehead, a biohazard symbol, that twisted in a very cool way and made people super ill and throw up.

youkaihime replied to your post “in theory coming up with grotesquely ugly powers for every fukurodani…”

I’m pretty sure there’s a guy in x-men who makes people throw up when he looks at them. He has a symbol in his head, I’ll try to find him in the internet….

ah man that’s really good but i already have sakusa as plague…

ok like the whole “protecting women and children” argument for the anti-trans bathrooms thing is ridiculous like i wanna know when these old ass men have ever cared about women and i want numbers on trans women assaulting women and children - which i know that this hasnt occurred and theyre just making shit up. men need to stop acting like they give about fuck about women and their safety and rights to boost their agenda since they continue to work against the wellbeing of women at the same time!!!!!!!!!

I made a setting spray to set my makeup this morning bc I ran out of my other and it worked like fucking magic. If I don’t have a setting spray my make up gets cakey af. I made it with some argon oil, water, and the Nivea men’s sensitive post shave balm. My make up has very little creasing compared to before I’m impressed

microwavegrapesv7 replied to your post “iamatinyowl: ranting-anti-sjw: iamatinyowl: Reminder that only…”

is this implying that all men are a hivemind that think the same?

Aye, that too.

Like, even if that amount of decision-making was left up to men, that doesn’t necessarily mean it would be bad.

Just like leaving that amount of decision-making to women or minorities wouldn’t necessarily be good. Human beings are individuals, tumblr.

Boob Jobs

Why I do not want a boob job? Boys need to get their eyes off porn sites. Not all girls have tits like what they see in porn. Boys get disappointed and sulk and hate you for not having tits like what they see in porn. If I can enlighten them in what REAL boobs look like then that’s a start in hopefully making girls feel more confident about themselves. The only reason girls all go out and get boob jobs is because they think boys won’t like them if they’re boobs are not perfect, big, what boys believe they should like in porn clip/video/movie whatever. Depression and anxiety will actually subside in the female population if boys treated girls with respect and loved their girls whole body for their flaws, rather than those girls going out and buying up fake to make their men happy. Also I love my boobs. Their naturally big and they do the job just fine and i don’t need a man to say I need to go any bigger. Go get a bigger penis if you’re that worried about my tits, you obviously need a bigger dick if you can’t accept my tits for what they are. Girls need to get a grip of how they feel thinking that going fake to impress a man is natural. No love you need to realise boys don’t love you for what you are and for you to be perfect that’s what they’re after. They expect you to be a porn star and so many boys these days don’t distinguish the connection between love and sex. That’s why they love your tits, that why you love your new fake tits, Boys only want to fuck you not love you.

Next girls will all be getting plastic surgery on our vaginas because boys expect us to continue look like porn stars. Men these girls vaginas are photo shopped!!!!! We all don’t look like that and you expect us too and you make us feel body conscience because you have this pre conceived idea of what we all should like from porn sites. Guess what- if you could pick up at least 5 chicks and fuck them all- you would know this! Perhaps maybe you have and they’re all so depressed about their bodies from the comments you have made about them, that they had to get plastic surgery from head to toe so they did look like your favourite porn star that you wouldn’t know the difference
