Response to Behind the Aegis (Original post)

3. From my perspective, gay men seem to have even more pressures about body issues

They also seem to affect men in different ways than women and how we deal with it is looked at differently. Losing hair is a big issue for some. While women have makeup and all sorts of other ways to cover up the effects of aging, but if a man wears a toupee, he's disparaged for it. Height issues aren't really a concern for women, but short men certainly suffer disparately and are ridiculed if they try to wear any sort of footwear which is designed to add height.
