Saying misandry isn’t bad or isn’t a problem is like saying that just because there are more red bricks than black bricks in the world, getting a black brick thrown at you won’t hurt.
No, that’s not even close to accurate. Your analogy is so far from making sense that it hurts. Here, I’ll fix it for you: Let’s say a man were throwing bricks at a woman’s head, all day, every day, for centuries. One day, one of the bricks hits her in the face so hard little bits of it break off and end up in her mouth, and she spits one of those tiny little bits in the general direction of the man. And then he cries like a little baby, saying that her little brick spittle that didn’t even touch him was every bit as harmful as the millions of bricks he’s been throwing since the dawn of time. And then every time she tried to complain about all the bricks he throws at her, he brings up the one time she almost spit on him like it was just as bad or worse.

"Alfons Maria Mucha (Ivančice, 24 July 1860 – Prague, 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs."
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.
