A Rounderbum marketing agency recently sent me a pitch about the Rounderbum Shapewear products.
But, are they unknowingly body shaming men?

No One Is Perfect
The phrase “no one is perfect” got me wondering. Is Rounderbum knowingly or unknowingly body shaming men?
I definitely agree that we all have certain insecurities.
Being completely honest, I have my fair share of them. Weight, having slightly puffy nipples, and a lack of overall body image confidence being three of them.
I was fairly heavy when I was young, and received my fair share of fat-shaming.
Throughout my life I’ve struggled with my weight. Although people may not look at me now and think of me as overweight, I can’t help but think that I still am.
Instead of pretending I don’t have a weight or body image hang-up, I’ve decided to own it.
Meaning, I don’t think I’ll ever be 100% confident with my body no matter how in shape I may get. And, I accept that.
That said, is saying that “no one is perfect” helping or hurting people’s inherit and real insecurities?
What is perfect anyway? In my opinion, it’s an un-achievable myth.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against men’s shapewear products. I’ve written about them for years.
I’ve also worn nearly 100 different types shapewear for men products, and do admit some of them definitely boost my confidence when wearing them.
But, should Rounderbum be associating a flatter stomach, the appearance of a larger penis, or a rounder more plump “bum” with some abstract idea of perfection?
Or, does that just make the problem worse?
Fuck Being Politically Correct
I’m no snowflake, and I pretty much loathe any extreme views of the need for political correctness.
That said, I don’t support the idea of brands aligning certain imagery or messaging in a way the implies consumers are sub-standard if they don’t meet certain implied standards presented by the brand.
This is not about being over sensitive, it’s about calling brands out so they can be more aware of what they are doing.
Am I suggesting that brands stop using slender, fit, and subjectively attractive individuals in their marketing and product photos?
No, I am not.
But I do think that brands should be as inclusive as possible, while maintaining what they believe are their core values.
A Message To Rounderbum
Men with low body fat, defined abs, large dicks, and plump round butts are no better than those of us without.
We don’t need look a certain way in order to be great versions of ourselves.
I’m sure your men’s shapewear is good, and does help many feel more confident. Heck, I’d probably even enjoy wearing some of it.
But please reconsider some of your messaging, so that it doesn’t imply we can’t be our own version of perfect without it.
