Have You Checked Your Thigh Gap Lately?

Dr. Seuss's 'Star Bellied Sneeches' analogy continues to play out in the most absurd ways. There is now a disturbing breed of thinspiration that pressures women and girls to pursue a “thigh gap,” which is defined as the space between one's thighs. Online, users are posting aspirational pictures of thigh gaps, used as inspiration for weight loss and dieting. 

The latest focus is Beyoncé, casually pretend golfing in a bathing suit on her Instagram today. Immediately the internet-crowd typed accusations that her legs are photoshopped to include the oft-maligned thigh-gap. Also pleas to fire her photoshopper because he/she did a bad job:  Beyonce doesn't need to photo-shop anything because she's GORGEOUS just the way she is. So why did she do it?

We're personally sick of the idea that women who don't naturally have said "gap" should be modifying their bodies. Gap or no gap, far or thin, your thighs are fine just the way they are. Thin shaming, the whole gap between the thigh thing, is ridiculous. Women have thighs, real thighs, and if you have a gap great, but if you don't, who cares.

My biggest concern about this photo?
Is that any way to hold a putter?

Some days, it's just not worth getting out of the Facebook.

Just wondering, when did wiggling become a career choice?

I had a comment to go with the picture but my disfunctional tablet refused to co-operate so decided to dispence with it. I'll just say I'm a photo hobbiest and just wait until you see what ridiculous sample I come up with.

As a fellow golf hacker, I too am appalled at her total lack of putting style. What next, Gretzky's very talented golfing daughter posing with her putter on the cover of a golf magazine??? :)
