The #BellyButtonChallenge, what do you think?

So apperantly there is this new trend, the "belly button challenge" where you in order to be thin enough, have to prove you can touch your belly button with your arm around your back.

What do you think of this? Is it just a fun new trend, or is it contributing to make women feel worse about their bodies, like the thigh gap and the hip bridge. What's your opinion?

  • this is ridiculous. how is that even supposed to show anything? there's lots of factors that come into why you would be able to touch your belly button like that.
    some people are more flexible.
    some people have longer arms.
    some people are shaped differently.
    i personally don't know how they even bend their arm that way. i'm pretty small, and i can't even do that. i weigh 106 pounds.
    it's not a "fun new trend". it's idiotic.

  • This was on TV so I decided I would give it a try to see if I could and I could not do that. I did not try super hard to do it but I don't want to make myself feel uncomfortable either.

  • Not sure this is necessary to show a girl is thin. It smacks of "How thin can I get?" Don't want anyone thinking like that!!

    It's really just a fad and should be totally ignored!!

  • Another stupid trend, but more stupid are the people that feel self conscious for not being able to reach, and feel like they're less. Just like what happened with the thigh gap.

    P. S.: I did it and I can reach.

  • This is like a new thigh gap.
    Something girls will obsess about while leaving guys scratching their heads thinking they are just plain silly for caring about such things.

    • I think you're the only one who hates yourself because of your appearance. This isn't about fitness, health, or anything at all. This is all about you hating yourself because you're fat and hating people who are skinny..

      It all makes sense now, that's why you posted the picture of the horse. So you can relate better as far as size goes. Sorry it took me so long to catch on, I'm unsure of what the obese go through.

      My apologies.

    • If you say so ;)

  • Don't like it from the having to be skinny point of view

  • I think it can definitely help to make women/girls feel bad about their bodies, but it's not the worst challenge I've seen, some of them are really dangerous to your health.

    I don't really like most challenges.

  • Another way to promote anorexia.

    No thanks!

    (If these girls are naturally thin , doing this... then great for them).

    But if this challenge is going to have women rushing to lose weight in order to accomplish this challenge... then I think it's pretty darn unhealthy , and not promoting anything safe (or great).

    • He admitted to have a friend behind his back to help him, it's not his own arm :)

    • oh LOL okay well i still think the challenge is a joke... lots of fit people can't do it!

  • I can't do that even though I'm like 10 lbs underweight... simply because I'm not flexible at all. Yeah I think that has more to do with flexibility and less to do with your weight. If an overweight person is flexible enough, they could probably do that easily. I'm underweight and I can't simply because I can't get my arm to stretch like that.

  • This has to be one of the most ridiculous and idiotic things I have ever seen. I'm not going to twist my arm around my back to try to touch my belly button and I really don't care if I'm considered "thin enough" by societies standards.

    • You don't have to be very big, not to be able to do this at all.

  • This is retarded. I hadn't heard about it until this but I mean really? As most guys said its like the new thigh gap thing. And every person is different it doesn't really matter plus its more about flexibility then weight. I'm kind of chubby and I can do. this. So it has nothing to do with what they're trying to prove. Chubby bishes are great too. More to love. Who cares about weight as long as you're happy and healthy

  • My Mum got liposuction and her belly button was put back too high so I don't think she'd be able to do this.
    I probably would. Am I going to try? No. Because stuff falling for these stupid trends. This is going to go the way of planking, it will disappear as if it were never here.

    I couldn't figure out how to put the picture in here on my phone. This (clearly not "skinny") man is completing the belly button challenge. It has to do with your proportions. What does that mean? THE GIRLS WHO THINKS THIS MEANS THEY ARE SKINNY AND THUS SEXY ARE FULL OF MONKEY DOODO
    That is my 2 cents. Thank you.

  • What is the hip bridge? And yeah, if it's to prove that you're "skinny enough," I do not support this trend. The goal should be fitness and health, not "let's see how diminutive I can make my physique so that I can feel attractive and have something to brag about."

    • I think it's actually called "bikini bridge" but it's when your hip bones stick up so far, that your bikini (or whatever you are wearing) doesn't touch the skin between them. It's mostly about bone structure actually, but it's good to make girl feel like crap. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bdh3I8PCEAA7QPV.jpg

    • Oh, gross. Thank goodness I don't have that.

  • LOL I had't even heard of that since now.
    It's ridiculous & just gonna make women feel bad. Also women with bigger hips or like shorter arms (?) might not be able to do this but it doesn't mean you aren't "skinny enough".
