In this image conscious world that we are living in, many people forget that it’s not just girls that are self conscious about their bodies – boys feel the pressure to. According to a report from Gawker, boys in LA are just as likely as girls to take drastic measures to lose weight, including vomiting and using laxatives.

The LA Times says that because boys are ‘exposed’ to pictures and posters of men with perfect pecs and abs, they feel a lot of pressure. So who’s the biggest problem? Apparently Channing Tatum.  This according to the LA Times article:

Some experts say boys are starting to face the pressures long placed on girls, as buff, bare men proliferate in pop culture. Boys today watch Channing Tatum strip as “Magic Mike” or weigh themselves against the muscular Dwayne Johnson.

The article also points out that steroid use is on the rise with young boys, and that abs are a prized possession. Obviously all kidding aside, image is a serious concern in society, but these kids need to be shown how to be healthy in a proper way.
