Fitting a mold not designed for me

Senior Airman Noah Sudolcan, 51st Fighter Wing Public Affairs journeyman, describes his experiences and body dysmorphia in a commentary, Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, June 16, 2021. From his perspective, the gay community hyperfocuses on body types casting labels to categorize the shapes and sizes. Whether you are skinny, a twink, hairy, stocky or a bear, the pressure to fit into a certain mold can cause us to feel inadequate. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech Sgt. Vernon Young Jr.)
