The Ideal Body
The pressure these days is for women to pump iron like men, engaging in extreme combat sports like MMA, boxing, etc. Like men are the only valid warrior type in our culture – all of it to be just as the “boys” are.
Like they aren’t good enough unless they are as muscular and have a physique like the male homo sapien! This is absurd!
In traditional cultures around the world, the ideal male body is that of a Grecian wrestler, and the ideal feminine figure – is a lithe dancer’s body.
