Thigh Gap Nonsense

by M Stagg | The Voluptua Project™


OK, I know I haven’t posted to the TVP blog in a while but this is something I just had to comment on. No offense to the naturally thin women out there but who the hell decided that possessing a #ThighGap (Pinterest has plenty of examples to go ’round if you don’t know what I’m talking about here). was something worth coveting?! To me, it seems like yet another attempt at the media (and some fitness industry professionals) to perpetuate fear and poor body image messages to women. Furthermore, it’s a way to brainwash men into thinking that women with a thigh gap are more desirable than women without.

I’m sorry folks – wait, not I’m not! – but I’d rather gaze upon a woman with soft, toned thighs that look healthy than someone with what resembles leftovers from a wingette eating contest!

But enough about how I feel. What do you think about this not so new trend in bad body imagery? Chat away in the comments below!
