    The 9 Reasons Women Want a Thigh Gap article you posted a link to has a comparison of a normal Nicole Richie vs the anorexic version (our goal). Also, the site is selling an ebook on getting thigh gaps where the author/site owner talks about how women shouldn't get lower body exercise because it builds muscle and destroys thigh gap.

    Nameless, how many miles is your cycle commute?

    M.
    Just a nice measly 4 each way . With a safe route, I'd totally be willing to ride farther. I can do at least 12 miles in a trip on fairly level ground, but I haven't done a "how far can I go?" trip in over a month.

    Yeah. It's a messed up aesthetic.

    You posted this link on another thread.

    I'd rate Miss 25% as being the most attractive of the example bodies. Therefore, the hottest women have no thigh gap. Fact.

    Crazy right. I want posting it because I agree with the sentiment.

    It is not new that women use ridiculous metrics to gauge their attractiveness. (Or, in my opinion, are told so by men) What I DO find new and kind of troubling is that there seems to be just a few distinct "camps" of women in regards to fitness, many of which are not healthy.

    1) Women (and many more men) that don't give a rat's behind, are on the SAD, and spend an inordinate amount of time deriding anyone that looks better than them out of jealousy. Make no mistake, this is the vast majority. You walked around lately? Ain't too many women that look remotely like anyone in any of those pics, skinny or ripped. Sad but true. I hear from some of my female friends that for them it's even more grim....

    2) Women that use genetic and diet freaks as metrics for their fitness. Yes, Hannah Davis is low body fat, has no "thigh gap", and has breasts. That is called a genetic jackpot, as is the case with some models. No, she isn't starving. She's just lucky. Get over it. Many others that MIMIC this genetic luck are concerned JUST with the aesthetics of the mainstream definition of attractiveness, which is unhealthy, unrealistic, then pushed upon them by insane women and insecure men. Some men and women can be healthy AND be low BF% AND attractive. It's genes. I say this because I have always found it silly when a woman or man can't just say "wow, they look amazing." Not every attractive woman plays with Mr. Pukey. Not every ripped guy is on roids. I'm a baseball fan, and I love the phrase "Sometimes, you just have to tip your hat to them."

    3) The "true health" camp of women, like the ones on here, or your local Amazon chick at the gym deadlifting 400#. They hate that group #2 gets any attention, whether that is from being genetic freaks or masochists. They see other women that are weak, prissy, likely unhealthy, and get pissed that men give them attention at all compared to them....to which I say relax! These women are just NOT crazy or genetic jackpot winners. They were probably headed down #1 or #2, didn't like what they saw, and DID something about it. That is the most attractive feature any woman (or likely man) can have: The drive to improve themselves in ways that don't just count in the mirror.

    Which is why I don't find it weird at all to ask on a first date: "So, what do you deadlift?"

    P.S. I'd take pictures of MY legs if I thought I knew how.
