I surround myself with people who love me, if I catch the slightest hint that someone is critical of my appearance I have no use for them in my life.
Really, it's the women who are critical of other women. Men are MUCH more forgiving of our bodies and our flaws. Are there some men creeps? Yes, but it's the women who are pouring over the photos and calling another woman fat, etc. They do it because it makes them feel better to criticize OTHER people's flaws.

And men are not off the hook either. They need to be buff. They need to be cut. There is enormous pressure on men too to be "perfect" and that is evidenced by the rising eating disorders in young men too.

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:
