Do people REALLY care about thigh gaps?


Do people REALLY care about thigh gaps?Do people really care? Does a guy care or not if a girl has one? It's something out of the girl's control, and doesn't have much to do whether they are thin or not. I've seen thicker girls with one because she had wider hips. You're not fat if you don't have one and you're skinny.

So my question is if you're a girl, do you have one? Do you want one of you don't?

And guys, do you care? Would you dump a girl if she didn't have one?

  • I'm convinced that thigh gaps are some shit that teenage girls over the internet made up and are the only ones who really even care.

    It belongs with the "I'm 5'8" and 110lbs, am I fat?" "My pinky finger, on my left hand is a little more crooked than my other fingers, will I ever find a man who will accept that?"

    Stupid girls online create this shit and promote insecurities, it's really sad.

    I've never even heard the term "thigh gap" irl. I have thick thighs and I get approached a lot so obviously it doesn't bother a lot of men.

  • i think with the obesity problem in the U. S. people have become reluctant to shame fat people. The thigh gap obsession strikes me as a work-around to still show preference to a skinny feature, without directly insisting that girls be skinny.

    • I know man what did fat people do to you? I'm overweight and I'm doing something about it but these people who shame make me want to stop eating all together tbh

    • Hmm interesting.

  • Wtf is with this new thigh gap thing lol. I don't even find it attractive. In b4 women start buying thigh gap surgery.

  • The thigh gap feels like a media event to me - Really would any guy know or care what a thigh gap was if it wasn't plastered all over the public perception - We were told we should like women with thigh gaps next year it will be odd socks.

    • Nah. New name, old old idea.

      It's been known as the "Q angle" since at least WWII. It has significant ramifications for women's sports medicine. Women with bigger Q angles have different shear stresses on their knees during sports, and need different prehab exercises accordingly.

      In terms of beauty, it's been known since antiquity. Antiquity, dude. Ancient sculptures of beautiful women had wide Q angles.

      The only difference is that to have a thigh gap, you need a wide Q angle plus sufficiently low body mass. Basically, you have to be... young. LOL

      Nothing new under the sun.

    • In French it's named "une rivière parisienne" and that wasn't very positive.

    • the thigh gap and q angle are not the same thing.

      it is something new, made up by the fashion industry

    In my entire life and in all my travels to over 17 countries around the globe, I've never met a single guy that cares about thigh gaps.

    The only people that do care are insecure girls, and there no reason for them to e insecure.

    People didn't even talk about thigh gaps when I was younger.. This is a new beauty phenomenon and total BS in my opinion.

  • to me its a pointless question i have only heard about this topic with in the last year (living under a rock someplace) it shouldn't matter if you have one or not. if it does matter they are being narrow minded and are not looking at the hole picture.

  • Yes and no... The wide hip bones are nice which helps make the thigh gap but I'd also prefer that space be filled in with thick thighs. Thus, the ideal girl for me isn't going to have one.

    For what it is worth I think most guys share this view.

  • I really like women's legs and particularly the thighs, but even then, I've never cared about whether or not there was a thigh gap. In fact, I wasn't even aware of what it was until about a year ago. I think as long as she is fit and her legs are nice, it does not matter whether or not she has a gap.

  • I don't care for a thigh gap sensually. For me the little details don't matter though I know a thigh gap (natural) would be good because then she will have a less traumatizing labor in child-birth.

  • No it something that doesn't affect anything and is wrongly getting so much attention if I'm honest. So what if you have though gap? Doesn't mean anything its just another natural difference between people.

    And no I wouldn't dump a girl if she didn't have it, that's stupid. It is something completely irrelevant in every way.

  • I think it's fucking disgusting to have that port of standard because it makes girls think they're fat when they're at a good body weight because their thigh's are touching

    Honestly I prefer it that and I love me some full tone maybe a little muscly sexy legs

    Yummy

  • The only people who care about having a thigh gap are a small number of high school girls. The rest of us don't give a shit. It's honestly the dumbest thing to care about, besides hip dips.

    I'm tall and skinny but I don't have a thigh gap and I don't want one, ever.

  • Nah people really don't care. Only a few j'mokes on Gag seem to talk about it. I didn't know what that is until I came upon this site. Thick thighs can be super sexy, and if a girl has thin thighs... that can look great too. I don't think I've ever even had one and have no desire or concern about it one way or another.

  • I have seen plenty of girls that care, but just two guys that care. Those guys were the shallowest persons I have met, and they are also really ugly and dumb, so no need to care that it might be a deal breaker for someone with a brain.
    Honestly, I care, but just because I like mine (even if it's not a full gap). ^·^ But on other people I don't give a damn. 😛

  • Hmm looking at the diagram, I would like wider hips-better shape, easier delivery of baby. But I don't care about the thigh gap. I think they usually look really unhealthy.

  • Actually I do care. I had no idea what it was until a bunch of people started bringing it up on GAG but when I say I care I mean it looks weird and makes me cringe 😩

    Like small ones aren't really bad like how they're comparing thigh gaps vs thick thighs here
    www.thestudentroom.co.uk/attachment.php

    But the bigger thigh gaps makes girls look bow legged and looks unhealthy like on these examples...

  • It's mostly women who perpetuate that "thigh gap" bullshit, but I do know some guys who like thigh gaps... most of whom are still in high school.

    On an evolutionary standpoint, however, wider hips are ideal for childbirth, so guys being into "thigh gaps" could also mean that they just like wider hips, as girls with wider hips tend to be the ones with thigh gaps... though I'm sure they'd prefer there to be a little more meat on those gams? I don't know.

  • I have wide hips and still don't have a thigh gap, even at my lowest weight (97-98 lbs. )

    Some girls just carry their weight there, personally I find fuller thighs more attractive, but I could be a little biased
