Franklin Leonard, founder of The Black List, asked one of the many questions fans had about the photo – namely, “how many crunches do I have to do before my abs look like that”.
I have questions about the @TheElliotPage photo, specifically 1. How many crunches do I have to do before my abs look like that? 2. Do I really have to do that many crunches? 3. Seriously, is there a shortcut that doesn't involve that many crunches?@TheElliotPage, please advise

Someone else posted a gentle reminder that all trans bodies are beautiful and valid on Twitter, saying Elliot Page is “not a standard to set”. They wrote: “If you’re a trans man with another body shape, you’re just as trans as he is, and just as much a man as any cis man.”
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Elliot Page is a movie star who can afford to get both top surgery and sixpack abs. He is not a standard to set. If you’re a trans man with another body shape, you’re just as trans as he is, and just as much a man as any cis man.
