G.I. Joe And Male Body Image

from the boys/young-men dept.
Boys/Young Men Time magazine recently had an article on boys' body image. It's by a woman who believes that toys such as G.I. Joe, whose muscular size has dramatically increased over the years, is a root cause for eating disorders and muscle dysmorphia in men. This article is an interesting contrast to our previous one on anorexia, but includes statistics for boys and men: 36% of boys in the 3rd grade have tried to lose weight, and up to 15% of high school aged boys are believed to use androstenedione (basically, an over the counter steroid). Thanks to Bill Kuhl for sending this one in.
