Toxic Masculinity, Attraction, and Body Image in Men with Dr Scott Griffiths

Hello Body Protestors! We are leaning into the science this week and had a very interesting conversation with researcher Dr Scott Griffiths on how eating disorders manifest in men, muscle dysmorphia or ‘bigorexia’, the role of gender norms and toxic masculinity in male appearance ideals, and how body image fluctuates all the time. 


This episode’s knowledge noodle is on ‘seasonal body image’.
