Let's Talk About Yaoi's Impossible Male Beauty Standards

Anime and manga have created some impossible beauty standards. I mean, why else would a guy go for a 2D lady? Just look at this.

Fairy Tail

Impossible body and annoyingly perfect personality. Some of it doesn't even make sense like whose shoulders are literally larger than the rest of their arms? Has this always been sexy!?

But, it's not just the ladies that face impossible standards set forth by the world of fiction and delusion. Oh no, us guys have some lofty standards thrust upon us as well...

 

1. How am I supposed to compete with those hands?

Yaoi

 

2. Giant Euphemism!

Yaoi

 

3. The small head, long body, and Hulk hands. This is ideal and I don't know how to get surgery for this.

Yaoi

 

4. Legs for miles.

Yaoi

 

5. Check out Mr. Sticky Fingers over here.

Yaoi

 

6. LONG ARMS LIKE SLENDERMAN!

Yaoi

 

7. MORE LONG, THIN EVERYTHING

Yaoi

 

8. ...I got one buff arm too ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Yaoi

 

9. Yeah, lemme just go stretch my neck out.

Yaoi

 

11. "My bad".

Yaoi

 

12. I don't think the best plastic surgeons could give me this chin.

Yaoi

 

13. FISH LIPS ARE IN SEASON!

Yaoi

 

14. Right about now is when body issues set in.

Yaoi

 

15. The body of a sex god.

Yaoi

 

16. No one can meet these perfect standards.

Yaoi

 

Well...there is one guy...

 

There are impossible standards on either side so I guess if you guys want a girl with tiny arms and large assets, you better shrink your head and chisel the life out of your chin. 

I grew up traveling around the world with my parents who practice and teach medicine. We spent 6 years in South Asia, including Japan, and my anime obsession began there. Sports, horror, and Seinen are my favorite genres. Favorite quote: "Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does." by William James
