Case in point: Woods is set to make her acting debut on the Freeform series Grown-ish in the next half of its second season starting on June 5. Woods obviously already has tons of on-screen experience being on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but this will mark her first time taking on a scripted role.
The model and soon-to-be actress recently shared a photo of her wearing a bright-orange bikini — as one does when it's summertime in Los Angeles — but all sorts of trolls came out who were weirdly obsessed with her... thigh gap? We live in strange times.
Some followers came to Woods' defense.
"She can have a thigh gap depending on how she's tip toeing to pose," one person wrote. "Why would she edit for a thigh gap and leave the stetchies? Y'all are never satisfied!"
Now, for the record, editing photos period to add a thigh gap or get rid of so-called "stretchies" is totally unnecessary, and we definitely shouldn't be idolizing folks who do that kind of thing.
Why is everyone so fixated on thigh gaps? What year is this?
Aspiring to have a thigh gap is so 2000-late. And let's be real: Most of the thigh gaps we see in the media we consume are totally not real whatsoever. We don't know whether Woods is a culprit of over-editing herself in this specific instance. But we do hope that if she did FaceTune that thigh gap into existence that she might reconsider doing that in the future.
Say it with me: Thigh gaps are not a marker of beauty.
If you have one, great! If you don't, also great! Thigh gaps — just like six-pack abs and perfectly chiseled cheekbones — tend to be thought of as these physical traits that determine who's considered beautiful or attractive. But we are so beyond those boring, limiting definitions. Embrace who you are, and step away from the editing apps, people.
