Yes. Now photos of thigh gaps are "harmful" and "iiresponsible."

Urban Outfitters was ordered by the UK thought police to remove an image of a model because the size of the gap between her thighs was too large.

Irresponsibly large. Yes, irresponsibly large thing gaps are a serious public issue these days.

But not just irresponsible. The photo of a too-large thigh gap is also harmful.

Yep. We can't show photos of women who are too skinny. And we can't drink 32 oz Cokes or eat normal meals during lunch at school because well... that will make everybody too fat. We have to conform to what our government tells us is proper. Thank God we will be protected from our own inability to manage our own lives.

The most chilling part of this new era of thought police?

Yes, we now live in a world where bureaucrats will measure the gap between your thighs, determine if that gap is the appropriate size, and then force 3rd party search engine companies like Google to ban you from search results if your thigh gap size is irresponsibly harmful.

Be careful what you post on ATS. The British thought police may find it harmful and irresponsible, and force it to be removed.

Now it's only advertisements, soon you'll have police on the street equipped with tape measures. Offending thigh gaps will be affixed with a restrictive device to keep the legs closed. Wake up people!

Well the knickers are very nice, gap or no gap! Quite a sexy yet classy design.

A style I would say looked very nice.

I don't get all this fuss about body parts and Victorian shame. What's wrong with a woman's more intimate regions? There are all different kinds of body shapes. Why the obsession with body image?

I better go and flog myself now. I must supress all wicked thoughts until I'm so pent up it bursts out like an explosion of weirdness!

I wonder if they would have a problem with some store that caters to plus-size women posting photos of women that are overweight?

Meh. I'm more of a satin kind of guy.
Funny thing the little differences UK vs. US...over here, social media would have taken care of it, if enough people complained. Kinda like the play-doh toy that parents thought looked too much like a penis for people that see penises everywhere and are fearful of them.

While I fully agree that the over-policing of EVERYTHING has got to stop.... I do wish companies would use more realistic looking women (and men) in their ads. It doesn't bother a lot of people, but there are a lot of people who really react to ads like that. They try to achieve the "perfect" body and gain health and mental issues during the process. It's interesting how much MSM can affect our own ideas and beliefs.

Now I see a penis in your avatar.
Great.
Thanks a lot.

Yes ladies, if your thighs do not rub together with every step, you're dangerously and irresponsibly underweight. God forbid everyone not be a revolting blob.

It's probably a better idea to be responsible for our own thoughts and beliefs, rather than delegate that responsibility to unelected government bureaucrats.

Plus, why the attack on thin women? Why are bureaucrats obsessing over the gap between a woman's thighs? Isn't that body shaming itself, the very thing they're claiming to protect us against?

We can't make fat people feel bad about their bodies so we ban using skinny girls in ads.

The After photo is much more asthetically pleasing, I'm not too keen on the anorexia look, those knees just look too thin and boney, but then again as a 36 year old male with a beer belly I'm not their target audience. I do think advertisers should be responsible, promoting an anorexic look is pretty irresponsible, there's no need for it and generally makes girls/ women more conscious of their weight.

Meh....I mean should they be regulating this stuff, probably not. Having said that I actually prefer the second picture. It is sexier in my humble opinion. The first picture is an obvious photo-shop job. Just look at it closely. Its very easy to spot. So to reiterate. No to government regulation of thigh gaps. No to photo-shopping models to look like concentration camp survivors. So a hardy meh all around.

Do you think that this "perfect" body is propagated by men or women?

Is it women who are putting the pressure on themselves or are men dictating to women what their ideal of the perfect body is?

The current ideal of "perfect" is really totally contrary to what is natural for women. It is squeezing women quite literally into an unrealistic shape. I guess this has always gone on in history; head binding, feet binding, neck lengthening, on and on.

Also, the perfect body for whom? The perfect body in which era?

As a guy, the most positive thing I can do is to not put the pressure on. I'm happy with the diversity that nature presents us with, that is beautiful enough for me.

I don't know if they should be regulating this stuff..but, I remember reading an article about this and how it is THE in thing and a lot of women are obsessed with this, they have to have that gap....not everyone can have a thigh gap even if they are skinny...depends on the body shape and build, fat distribution...

the article was scary, it was like this was the measure and they were a total fail if they didn't have the gap

Is that 1st image from the actual ad?
Only saying as it's a really crappy Photoshop job, look at the pixelation down the legs and colour difference at the top of the thighs.
