If Jason Momoa's Beach Bod Isn't Good Enough, Consider The Rest Of Us Whales

Your judgment of him isn't helping your perception of you.

If Jason Momoa's Beach Bod Isn't Good Enough, Consider The Rest Of Us Whales
Warner Brothers

For anyone who has ever read any of my articles for Odyssey, you would know that I am all about body-positivity and self-love. That being said, I am by no means near "perfect" in society's standards. I do not look like a Victoria Secret model or a Barbie doll, but honestly, who does? When it comes to comparing one's self to ridiculously fit celebrities, it just ends up hurting your self-esteem more than anything. I mean, I can't compare myself to Kim Kardashian because there is simply NO way I will EVER look like her.

In a recent Twitter discussion, actor Jason Momoa was body-shamed on all the platform. Yes, you heard that right. Jason Momoa aka Aquaman aka Khal Drogo from Game Of Thrones. This man is literally shaped like a god sent from heaven above and he has now been recently accused of having a "dad bod." Now, if you haven't seen the infamous photo of said "dad bod," here it is:

Now, if you have been thinking, "Wow, he's really out of shape." You are actually insane.

Jason Momoa is one of those celebrities that has a super-ripped body. From his biceps to his pecks to his abs, he is basically drool-worthy. In most of his films, he is close to 0% body fat at all times, is on a super strict diet, and trains for months to look how he does. I mean, in comparison, do you think Chris Hemsworth looks as amazing as Thor overnight? Heck no!

Sure, in his Venice photos, he isn't as chiseled as usual. But, he still looks fantastic! I guarantee that most men don't even come close to him, and that's when Jason isn't flexing! Saying that though, he, by no means, has a "dad bod" or is "letting himself go," like some people have said on Twitter.

But, this isn't just about body-shaming a famous celebrity. This is about how ridiculous body standards have become. As mentioned earlier, I guarantee that half of the world's population doesn't even come close to looking like Jason Momoa or Chris Hemsworth or any other beautiful male actor.

If this is what the world has decided is "letting yourself go," then the world should hit the gym, eat some vegetables and re-think their priorities. I know Jason Momoa probably wasn't affected by all the hate from his pictures. However, everyone else in the world has now become self-conscious.

We are setting crazy high expectations of what being physically fit are.

We are setting crazy high expectations of what being healthy is.

We are setting crazy high expectations of what being confident is.

As long as you are practicing a healthy lifestyle and are comfortable in your own body, you have reached a confidence level. You, most likely, know that struggling to reach extreme beauty standards is unhealthy, discouraging, and simply impractical. So, can we please stop calling out these celebrities, not for their sake, but for our own?

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
