Is there any positive body acceptance / Health at any Size type stuff out there geared towards a male (or even just clearly mixed- or non-gendered) audience?

It's awesome how much of this stuff now exists! But almost all of it that I've seen tends to be not just female-oriented but also pretty gendered. I mean, I totally see why people are responding back to heavily gendered negativity in gendered terms. But I'd love to check out some stuff that I can identify more personally with (as a male). For example, I think those blogs with (mostly) women posting their naked fat/skinny/handicapped/whatever bodies are sooooo righteous, but I never see anyone who looks like me.
I'm definitely not necessarily needing a site that's like WE ARE METALWORKING LUMBERJACKS WHO PULL OUT CHAIRS FOR LADIES AND LOVE OUR MANLY MANLY BODIES. I'm not into gender normativity much at all; I guess I just want to see and read about people whose bodies look like mine talking about loving themselves and resisting body policing and saying fuck off to anyone who tries to tell them their body sucks.
