The men can be as fat and old as they want, but so much pressure is put on women to be built like little boys with fake boobs.

Real women know what it's like to have kids and gain weight and struggle with your weight. The women in media and show business were dreamt up by men and women do it to please them and other women. Any women who holds herself to those standards is not very smart.
