Ever notice how men’s body image issues only ever get brought up in a context that’s intended to get women to shut up about our own body image issues?
You’ll almost never see a post or an article about unrealistic physical expectations of men without it having been used to derail a conversation about women.

So today is my 19th birthday and my parents have been super secretive about my cake for like a week. Turns out they searched through months worth of NightValeRadio tweets to find a birthday related one for my cake. And the people at the cake place had absolutely no idea what it was referring to and still have no clue what the design was all about.
THATS GOOD PARENTING RIGHT THERE
