I have said this before but I think we are living in a time when people are more obsessed with their bodies than they were even 10 years ago- I think many men are as obsessed with their weight as women have been for longer. And it is especially prominent in what I guess you’d call hipster subcultures for people to literally just run on calorie deficits all the time- bike all day, eat next to nothing, develop a smoking problem that further suppresses your appetite, binge drink, repeat. In subcultures like that I think it is generally not very conscious but that doesn’t mean it isn’t culturally engrained.
i like your blog but you post to many black goths. imho they just dont look right.
