The author describes how boys are brought up and how their upbringing can be harmful to them.

The trap of reaching the “perfect body shape”, why is it wrong?   I read and article posted the 14 October 2014  in The Guardian about body image, the article was written by Laura Bates and I really liked her point of view on the issue.
