I’m just browsing on the computer and what do I stumble upon? None other than an article saying that girls are becoming anorexic to achieve something called a thigh gap. For those of you who are like me, who had absolutely no f-----g idea what a thigh gap is, it is where your thighs do not touch, thus causing you to have a gap in between your legs. So basically your legs are thin; borderline twigs. Ohhh now I got it. Glad that’s cleared up. Well what exactly does this most wonderful thigh gap do? Am I able to have magical powers with this thigh gap? No you say? Oh ok well why in the world would I want it. I have no idea why someone would want something like this, I'm really tripping off this. And what makes this trend even worse is the fact that girls are willing to harm themselves and their bodies in order to get this gap that really won’t do them any justice. Call me mean but I think this is a stupid trend and I think girls NEED/MUST learn to love themselves for who they are. Stop altering your bodies because believe it or not there is no such thing as a perfect body. I also read that Twitter had to delete 30,000 images of thigh gaps that girls had been posting on the site and had to delete some topics that girls were trying to trend such as #proanorexia and #thinspiration. This is very sickening, it’s not a game, it’s not funny, and it’s not cute. The low self-esteem that I am witnessing happen more and more often is just sad. I understand that it’s hard but we (females) have got to learn to love ourselves for who we are. We have to love our hair, our bodies, and our skin tones. We have to learn to stop tearing one another down because honestly this is how crap like “thigh gaps” gets started. I refuse to believe that starving myself in order to have a thigh gap is attractive. I'll take my closed thighs over anything that could cause harm to myself.
How do you guys feel about this whole thigh gap situation?
