‘Thigh Reading’ Trend Takes Hold On Social Media

In an effort to subvert mainstream beauty standards and celebrate all bodies equally, thousands of women are promoting the hashtag #thighreading and posting pictures of their thighs to social media, many of which depict stretch marks, scars, and cellulite. What do you think?

“It will never beat the rush of seeing an imperfect thigh in real life.”

“Just a few more anatomical hashtags to go until women no longer have to feel judged by their appearance!”

“I’m all for female empowerment, but I draw the line at being shown their imperfections.”
