The notion this is a one sided behaviour is one I fundamentally disagree with. The concept of body shaming, the abhorrent practise of shaming people who are fat, thin, short, “ugly” etc. is something that happens both inter and intra-gender, which also happens to provide a dynamic here. Men are told to let women down gently just as much as women are told to let men down gently. That’s more about being human and courteous to one another, than denying one’s freedom of expression. Whilst it may be perceived by individuals as stifling, it can’t be considered unfair if both “sides” (if there are any) are subjected to the same constraints.
