ABC - A new body trend is apparently becoming an obsession among teenage girls. It’s the thigh gap — a clear space, or gap, that can be seen between the thighs when a girl is standing with her knees together. Some runway models have it, and teen girls want it. According to teen psychologist Barbara Greenberg, teens who were pursuing a thigh gap were “setting themselves up for not only an unattainable goal but for an unsustainable goal.“Even if they reach it, it’s going to be very hard for them to maintain it,” she said. Surprisingly, some girls’ motivation to have a thigh gap isn’t to make themselves more desirable to boys. The New Jersey students told Chang that some boys don’t even notice it. It’s strictly a girl thing, affecting popularity and status, they said.
This is a new body trend? Really? Like isn’t this just another way to say chicks want to be skinny? I mean if you’re skinny your thighs don’t touch right? If your fat they do. Seems pretty simple to me. So I’m not sure it’s fair to say the thigh gap is a new thing? And aren’t we really talking about a Cranston here? Anyway I just wanted to clarify one quick thing. Saying the thigh gap has nothing to do with girls wanting to be more desirable for boys is arguably the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard anybody say in the past decade of doing the Stool. Listen honey tell me you don’t like my firm, … tell me you don’t like my fuckin neck tie, but don’t tell me chicks don’t want a thigh gap to make dicks hard. It’s just a known fact that the only reason humans care how they look is because they want to get laid. If sex didn’t exist everybody would just sit on their couch, eat Jax and get huge. Why else do you think everybody gets gross when they get married?
