Thigh Challenge!



Huffington Post wants your thighs. Yes, you heard me correctly...Huffington Post wants your thighs! With the latest 'fatkini' and 'bare faced/no make-up' challenges swirling around on the interwebs, thighs apparently have been overlooked and wants to join in on the fun.



PROS : Anonymity! As we all know the internet can be quite cruel, especially to those who don't always look air-brushed-picture-perfect (who does anyway?!). And when brave people post pictures of themselves in their natural state, I often cringe at the harsh critical comments. But with this challenge, you'll have the peace of mind that no one can personally attack you because of your thighs. I mean no one is going to say : 

"Oh yeah, I know those thighs, they belong to my friend's cousin girlfriend Jane!"

Unless they're a total creeper...

The only thing that will be on display are your thighs. No one is going to know your name, or what you look like. You can freely, but most importantly show off your thighs anonymously without anyone knowing your identity.

CONS :  Honestly though, who really wants to get their thighs out?? For some reason this challenge just hits a raw nerve with me. I proudly embrace my thunder thighs, but that doesn't mean I want the whole internet to see them, let alone make comments about them. And I can't help but think are these "body embracing" challenges going too far. I mean what's next, getting my vajayjay out to help another woman to accept her vajajay? As you can probably tell, thighs are a sensitive subject for me, so this isn't my favourite challenge in the whole world.

OVERALL : Will I participate? Hmmm the jury is still out on that one, but I can appreciate the fact this challenge is just that...a (huge, yet interesting) challenge! And who knows, perhaps it will help  me to get over people seeing or looking at my thighs.

If you're interested in participating in this challenge send in your pic and a caption expressing how you feel about your thighs to : women@huffingtonpost.com


What do you think about this challenge? Will you participate?
Let me know!!

LOL! I agree with you! The funny thing is I just plastered a photo of myself in my swimsuit on my blog! (probably not the best idea I've ever had!And I'm not sure I'll leave it online for long).

I'll be checking on the thigh feature though! ;)
