Them Thighs Though
I just read a term that is quite possibly the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever encountered. “Thigh-gap prejudice.” It’s becoming abundantly clear to me that things are quickly spiraling out of control. I’m sort of disappointed in myself for even acknowledging “thigh-gap” as an actual thing to be addressed.
Until recently, I’d never heard reference to this space between the legs, save once when I heard it referenced as part of a slur of sorts. If you really care about this “issue” ( I don’t) that the interweb has done it’s best to blow up with stories like this and this, please feel free to check out the amazing work to be found here and here. Full disclosure, I only skimmed those articles, but Jen Sinkler and Melissa Harris-Perry are pretty damn fantastic so I don’t have any doubts about providing those links.
I haven’t read those in detail because I’m preoccupied with thinking about how awesome it is to have big, full contact thighs, and the commonly accompanying big butt. I’m using the term “big” loosely, because who’s to say what big is? At the top of my sport I would proudly put my measurements up against anyone, so I feel qualified to speak on the matter.
Let’s just say juicy, full and beautiful. As in, not emulating the appearance of people who are suffering from lack of nutrition. Whether begotten by God’s grace or athletic training, I really don’t care. Just the other day I was sitting on the GHD and looked down in utter awe as my thighs took up almost the entire width of the machine. I love to dominate my space like that. Whoever sits next to me on a plane should know, I am comparing the size of our legs, and I’m usually winning.
Anyone who’s feeling external pressure to achieve space between their legs needs to be informed, there’s a large community of people out here who appreciate healthy thigh meat not only for it’s aesthetic appeal, but indisputable utility in athletics and life. Stay strong and keep those thighs just the way they are…or maybe bigger.
