Sad Times

I had no idea who John Prescott was until reading this article in The Guardian. Heck, I still don’t know who John Prescott is. To me, he just looks like a big, sad corporate teddy bear. He looks like the last person on earth you would expect to have bulimia.

I’m glad he came forward with it. It makes me wonder how many men, specifically older, straight men have body image issues. Bulimia’s become such a “spoiled little white girl’s disease” that it’s gotten a stigma attached to it for anyone who doesn’t fit that mode. When it strikes older men, it just doesn’t seem “right.” It’s like watching a giant riding a tricycle. These are people’s dads; it’s so hard to imagine them not feeling strong.
