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?

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
