Heads up guys. Body shaming doesn’t just happen to women. Recently, baseball player Prince Fielder stripped down for ESPN’s Body issue and here are the comments that accompanied. Now, I will acknowledge that these are all male contributes, but it’s still shining a light on fat shaming for men, and how athletes (and anyone who poses nude) are socially expected to be perfect.
I’m not going to downplay the amount of shit women get on their bodies, but I would like to point out that this made news today.
I hate everyone.
Things that Prince Fielder has that these people don’t:
- A net worth north of $100 million.
- A 50-Home Run season.
- A kind, gentle personality.
- Muscles. Lots of them.

MEDIA REPRESENTATION IS IMPORTANT

That was actually a combination of me and the visual effects supervisor and the production designer sitting down and sort of coming up with the biological growth that’s growing all over the cars and what that looks like and the color palette. And we started to look at the nuclear test films from the 1940s of the nuclear blasts and just decided that it would be great if the landscape was not only violent with these creatures, but also the atmosphere. So we decided that it was kind of an eternal nuclear blast except nothing ever really gets obliterated because it’s eternal and it’s constantly going. - director Francis Lawrence on the appearance of Hell; P.D. by Naomi Shohan
