Are Manboobs Really So Bad?

Categories: Advice

I spent an entire party last year snickering with friends over a dancing queen's manboobs, which were visible through his clinging shirt, and afterward, I felt a teeny bit guilty about my behavior.

I mean, why are we so rigid about what a body should look like?

Aren't we being the bullies for demanding certain appearances from specific genders?

Manboobs--or "moobs"--can be a little bit sexy, especially since they tend to signify a giant "f**k you" to the world of gym-going and body fascism.

They're just a few hours' workout a day away from a "hot" male chest.

And face it--if they were on a woman, lots of people would be drooling their guts out over them.

So why not appreciate them on a man, too?

There's no good reason.

My feelings were confirmed by this website, which seems to have a healthy appreciation for manboobs--though if you scroll down on it, Ricardo Montalban in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is considerably less appealing than the monkey with low-hangers.

Nothing wrong with some manboobs on the right man, and I'll gladly volunteer to check out the Giants' and Jets' linebacking corps to prove it.

Remember Groucho's comment on Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr in "Samson and Deliulah"?:

"I won't go to any movie where the leading man's tits are bigger than the leading lady's."

Bring back Mr. Costanza and Kramer and their "Mansier" or the "Bro' " on "Seinfeld."

Funny is funny. Trust your initial reaction. Just be discrete in your glee.Trying to shame the guy by rubbing it in would be the bully behavior.

 There are very few of us who actually live up to own own physical standards for others.

Like a lot of other things, one wants to be live-and-let-live, but do you want them on you?  Either growing from or smashed onto?  Not like the "fat" guy who is still hot because it's musclee fat.  I recall seeing a guy with big moobs in the pool in Cherry Grove and it was only very icky because they were covered in long hair!

I see one guy on that site who's semi hot but the rest, I'm sorry, are vomity.

He was a homophobe, and homophobia sucks!

 I agree...[full confession] and try as I might, back hair (thick or thin) really skeeves me...he could be horse hung, but I'm still thinking about the back.
