    If I see a thigh gap, I'm checking her ID... I associate that look with gangly adolescents that haven't finished puberty yet.

    Anyway it's nice to know some men prefer big thighs! I grew up terribly embarrassed by my legs because I was sure they were abnormal.
    What?! Thighs are supposed to be bigger than calves! (And knees are not supposed to be the thickest part of your leg *shudder*)

    Well I mean it's a big difference very skinny ankles and big thighs!! Not that they're supposed to be the same, more that my thighs are just so darn big compared to my scrawny ankles!! And I guess big thighs are less common in little kids? My daughter never had obviously large thighs at 5/6...

When I'm feeling a little insecure, quiet or in pain, people react like I see them react to anyone else.
    I know I have body dysmorphia. I know what I see in the mirror is not what others see and that my idea of what my body looks like changes every day. So I don't worry much about what I look like and what others think I look like. When they see me with my head up, meet my eyes and immediately look at the pavement, continually scan my body as though judging, yet not seeming to find flaw, when men watch my hips, breasts, ass and legs regardless of how much or how little I'm wearing and kids and dogs still like me and find me approachable, I find it safe to assume I'm looking awesome. And yet it has more to do with how I carry myself than what my body itself actually LOOKS like.

    People can tell confidence from a mile away. And confidence causes more desire, envy and social anxiety than anyone's image of attractiveness does. You can dismiss skinniness, curviness, muscularity, pretty faces, nice hips... You can even turn them into something to mock (scrawny, tubby, hunky, dolled-up, fat ass...). You can't dismiss confidence. Annoyingly, the catch is that, to become confident, you have to dismiss your personal idea of attractiveness and dismiss any concerns about social judgement. Which few people can easily do.
    I think you hit the nail on the head. Confidence is sexy, so is happiness, and looking healthy. Besides happy people are so much more fun to be around than angry hungry people.

    This made me all paranoid so I had to go measure that my thighs are indeed larger than my calves. I am happy to report that I am not a Prepubescent-looking woman. Whew!

    So would it be too creepy to make canio6's version of thigh gap a valid health marker? I'm considering a new line of work in statistical analysis of correlation between thigh gap and oh about a million things (fertility, vitality, diabetes, cancer....this could be my lifes work!!!)

    If nothing else I think there would be a definite correlation between thigh gaps and your job satisfaction.

    Does this mean then that I could make my lifes work measuring, oh I don't know, certain 'bits' of a mans body and determining vitality, cancer or virility?! Whatta job that would be! Would that be satisfying? I don't know

    Reminds me of a pic I saw in Life magazine as a kid, that showed a row of shirtless men holding up one arm and a row of matronly women taking a sniff. Apparently it was a test process for a deodorant. My stepdad made a point of noting how the women chosen for the job were non-sexual, almost asexual in appearance.
