Brave Man Boob Sufferer Posts Topless Video To Help Other Men Dealing With The Condition

A US artist is helping to empower men suffering with the embarrassing condition gynecomastia

Despite being fairly common, it's a difficult condition for men to talk about. And for obvious reasons. Gynecomastia is when men develop 'man boobs', and few are brave enough to talk about it openly.

But American artist Christopher Pineda decided to change all that.

After reading a post on Reddit from a user considering suicide because of his man boobs, Chris responded, explaining how he copes with the condition.

"Hey there, I just want to tell you that it’s okay to feel the way you do. You’re not wrong in feeling the way you do, it’s only natural given the problem we’re facing. It’s difficult and I’ve felt the same way, and still do at times."Chris is open on his Instagram account

And he took things to the next level, recording a topless video of himself for YouTube, talking openly about how it's affected his life and how he deals with it.

He's also launched a fund connected with the video to raise money for the surgery he needs and in the meantime hopes to empower other men dealing with the condition.

And the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Good on you Chris!
