Whether it's refusing an offered
sweet or resolving to head to the gym
more often, body image impacts daily
life in a myriad of ways.
And while agonizing over a trip to
the scale is typically considered the
province of women, negative body
image is becoming recognized as a
struggle that crosses gender barriers.
Although the problem is gaining
attention now, the issue of male body
image is an old idea. Societal forces
push individuals to fit a certain idea of
attractiveness, said psychologist Stacey
Pearson of Counseling and
Psychological Services. Men also bear
this burden.
"I think we may be giving more
attention to (male body image), but the
pressure hasn't changed," Pearson said.
For years, the media and women have
waged war over the definition of an
ideal body type. Women cope with
pressure to look'like the supermodels
gracing magazine covers and TV
screens. Now that media image is clos-
ing in on men.
Men face more than the battle to stay
thin. They also deal with pressure to
gain muscle mass, said Prof. Kristen
Harrison, who does research on body
image and its relationship to the media.
"It's safe to say men don't want to be
skinny," she said. "They want to be big
with low body fat."
This trend goes beyond emulating
action heroes in the tradition of Arnold
Schwarzenegger and Jean Claude Van
Damme. Some men want to achieve
this body type in order to attract sexual
attention. The pressure can increase
during the transition to college because
students are introduced to many new
"It would seem like it's a time where
body issues might heighten for men ...
because they're meeting members of
the opposite sex," said Dr. Sheryl
Kurze, an internist on University
Health Services' eating disorder task
But research shows that heterosexual
women prefer men with less muscle
mass. Harrison said the pressure on
men to bulk up actually has more to do
with competition between men.
