I learned how passionate I am about the social issue I chose for the project, body image. Before being committed to a topic, I had no idea what I wanted my social issue to be about. But I was on the fence to not do body image since so many of my peers were already doing this issue. I thought everyone would just be talking about the same things everyone knows, "we come in different shapes and sizes; and people think that’s a “problem”". I knew that, but then I thought about something other than being “skinny” or “fat”, muscles on women. This is something that doesn’t really come up in the issue of “body image”. I have always been interested in this, I never understood why people were so against strong women. “I don’t want to get too bulky or too muscular”, we have had this drilled in our heads because of social standards and how women shouldn’t be strong like how men should be, because that's their job not ours. This connects with the social needs we are struggling on like relatedness or certainty of having a body that is acceptable in society which is very sad that we have to deal with this. I notice this everywhere, from my mom and sister, being self conscious for having big shoulders, my friends saying they want to workout, but don’t want super marked calfs… I don’t understand. When a woman is proud of her body because she worked for it and you look amazing, thats badass! It shouldn’t be looked down as an unusual thing, or a bad thing. We should have the same standards of guys that have muscles.
