Why people think naked men are gross?

I just read an interesting article that I thought you guys would enjoy. I had never really given it much thought, but I always found it odd that so many people would say things like "Seeing that dude's butt scarred me for life". As a teenager I recall my friends expressing concern over ever having to see a man naked, saying their genitals were gross, meanwhile I just felt curious and not at all disgusted.

I don't think naked dudes are gross, I actually enjoy them. But apparently lots of people find male nudity to be upsetting. I've heard the same thing about naked men on television. That audiences can handle a naked woman, but not a naked man, and that showing penises, especially erect penises is considered too "hostile".

So, why is there so much body hatred for men?

It hasn't always been this way. Clearly, the ancient Greeks appreciated and publicly admired the nude male!

I hold no hostility for an image of a naked man. Bring it.

Interesting that times have changed so much. And confusing. Why are men who appear semi-nude or nude ridiculed and met with hostility and disgust but semi-nude women are not, especially considering the disdain for women in general?

I like nude male bodies just fine. However, I don't like to see buttcracks on husky bent-over men.

Maybe it's part of the obesity thing?  I hate the sight of fat men without clothes.

My husband is very physically fit...competitive weight lifter...so I like that look.

I am now a photog, and have had opportunity to photograph nude women. They are comfy, I am comfy, and the pics are very artistic when finished. I asked my old photog teacher to hire a male willing to go mostly nude. He got a gay boy. Nope....didn't look good to me.

What about "the gay boy" he got was unappealing for photographs?
