Box Gap Is Fucking Stupid

The whole box gap thing is moronic. In 2012, some waste of space decided that the most arousing thing about a woman was an awkwardly-shaped pocket of air between her legs. “Fuck the breasts and ass,” he yelled, staring at a false beacon of hope amidst an anorexic girls clammy thighs. What’s more, this little nugget of pseudo-beauty sat dangerously close to the vagina, a hole that serves an actual purpose for men the world over. Just moments later, wiping the drool from his mouth, the air-pocket crusader proudly stamped the ‘box gap’ title upon this mind-numbingly boring creation. He then set about his daily business, positive the impressionable Tumblr community would gladly nurture another reason to give teenage girls eating disorders. His work was done.

And so here we are. It’s 2013 and box gap is a ‘thing’. It’s now a desirable trait for easy-to-sway females and another way moronic tweens can blur the line between healthy and skinny. I’m sorry (that’s a lie) if you’re one of the people who push this ‘phenomenon’, but you’re unfortunately misguided. An opening between a girls thighs is not a prerequisite for beauty, nor is it a depiction of sexuality. Each time a girl shuns away from a healthy lifestyle in order to prod open a crevice within her upper legs, people who aren’t fucking stupid roll over in their graves. Nice work, Gen Y.

I know skinny girls who have don’t have box gaps and fat girls who do; it’s genetics. The width of your hips has a direct correlation with the likelihood of that stupid little opening amidst the meatiest part of your legs ever existing. Punch your mum in the face for giving you bad genes before you get a year-long subscription to Jenny Craig, because if you’re not made a certain way, it ain’t gonna work. Unfortunately, trying to explain the gene pool to the box gaps target demographic is like telling a vegan refusing to eat meat doesn’t make them eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize.

No solace will be found knowing that while you’re starving yourself on the celery diet, Gen X is kicking back and laughing at how stupid we all are. The Ys have become so infatuated with internet culture that it’s more important to follow a ‘thinspiration’ page on Instagram than it is to get a gym membership. Forums and fan pages have provided an online hub for your modern day ‘pussy crushing’ male to talk about how essential ‘the gap’ is when he’s looking for vagina to ‘destroy’. I could be wrong (I’m not), but people who talk about destroying pussy have only ever destroyed their mum’s. Do you really want to famish yourself in order to impress a dude whose masturbation ritual involves waiting until his dad leaves the house to buy him the new Call of Duty?

Real men who like real women don’t give a fuck about box gap. Put down the celery, champ.

I always thought this was something invented by women on Pintrest; I had no idea it was a label though up by a man on Tumblr. Thanks for clearing that up.

Basic Bitch says:

Haha so true. You’re an idiot, pokylogic.

Pokylogic says:

Hahaha Wtf is kzone? You’re obviously in first year uni lacking essential vitamins & bb your response is basic bitch. I rest my case, I’ll head back to vice the media YFH is rippin poorly

Bella says:

Personally, I feel like any media phenomenon that pressures people, who were previously satisfied with themselves (unless they’re satisfied with being a certain way that is likely to shorten their lives or hurt others) to change in order to be attractive in the mainstream is fucked. This applies universally to breast size, butts, waists, intelligence, hair length (on your head/elsewhere), entertainment tastes, careers, body modification, shoe size (hey China), height, and the box gap apparently. Obviously this also applies to masculinity with your corresponding box gaps, muscle size, how you look in a suit, facial hair, scent, financial stability, commitment issues, etc. It’s great if you have attractive traits but the point is that attraction is mostly subjective (or ought to be?). Traits du jour are a really unfortunate thing and probably shouldn’t be FBO.

ap says:

to all the idiots trying to state that the author has no point. he never actually said that the box gap is not implicitly attractive to some men. Of course, given primal instincts, it could be attractive and i’m sure he will recognise that. The point is, there doesn’t need to be social pressures for girls to attain a box gap. Some girls have it, great. Some girls don’t have it (and never will) and they shouldn’t be made to feel any less attractive or sexual because of it. same goes with boob size. same goes with the ‘v’ for men’s abs. the box gap is an EXAMPLE the author is using for the ridiculous pressures that people are made to feel today.

Alana says:

“People who talk about destroying pussy have only ever destroyed their mum’s.”
Gold.

ap says:

YOU. ARE. AMAZING. we really need more people like you.

Matty says:

If a guy made this, you sir are a genuine dickwad. (and nice work Trolling too)

If a girl made this, clearly you are fat and don’t have a box gap….and are just jealous. Ps: if you are not fat, show me your ‘Box gap’.

S says:

“Unfortunately, trying to explain the gene pool to the box gaps target demographic is like telling a vegan refusing to eat meat doesn’t make them eligible for a Nobel Peace Prize.”

love it.

Randy Pan says:

I like box gaps because of everything surrounding the gap ;)

Bianca says:

What if I told you that most of these so-called ‘box-gaps’ are achieved merely by a thrust forward at the hips and sticking yo ass in the air.

M says:

That sounds like something I might be interested in.

S says:

See what you did here, was simply move the demonisation away from girls without Gap, onto men who like Gap.

What you should have done is written an article on how different people can like different things and that nothing is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. There are no absolutes here. But that wouldnt have been inflammatory.

If a guy likes fat girls, would you demonise him for requiring increased risk of diabetes and heart disease in his mating partners?

Sure some girls unfortunately suffer from illnesses that are associared with low weight, but that isnt the fault of men who like that look; there are other ways of being attractive to other men.

Even if a majority of men like skinny/box gap (whch id dispute) its getting pretty old hating on a guy for their personal preference. I hate watching swimming and afl, and at 5’9″ and 75kg im not into bigger girls. So why would a girl who loves swimming or afl or is bigger, want me to be interested in them?

Way to validate yourself through others.

Ash says:

Not all skinny girls have a gap, and not all bigger girls don’t. she did mention it . Yet you are pretty much arguing that any girl without a box gap is fat. You obviously didn’t read the article before shoving your imbecile opinion down our throats. So do us all a favor, keep dating other shallow people like yourself, and shut the fuck up.

Sonny says:

What if I told you, box gap could be achieved through exercise and not just ‘starving’ or ‘dieting’

Firsttimecommenter says:

You seem angry about this.. Why?

Saying box gap is moronic is the same as saying big tits are stupid.

It’s largely genetic and naturally attractive to the majority of men, thus a perfectly normal focus point.

Seems hypocritical to label pushers of ‘this phenomenon’ as misguided, then write about it yourself. Don’t get at people, calling them a waste of space then do exactly what you’re criticising them over; writing/talking about appealing female bodies. Which would be a normal hetero male activity anyway

Jen says:

Honestly, it’s nice to see some one just letting girls out there know that there is much more important things than having a few CM of air between their thighs. Whether you are opposed to it or not (or whether you think it’s sexy or not) in some cases it does promote unhealthy eating habits in girls and I am glad that some one is pretty much saying “who the fuck cares”… Thank-you!!

C-dawg says:

How is this any different from girls talking about when a guy has a “V” shape in his lower abdomen. You’re clearly just attention seeking and if it bothers you that much just don’t look at it, problem solved.

Hattie says:

I think the message here is that it shouldn’t bother girls so much if they don’t have one… which it does alot of the time. Maybe if guys didn’t put so much emphasis on the “sexiness” of them, then this discussion wouldn’t even exist, problem solved.

C-dawg says:

It’s a two way street, males are attracted to attractive women. The gap is just a bit of fun anyone that takes it seriously is an idiot.

Steve the pirate says:

Hahaha Bravo sir, bravo

NAK says:

all of a sudden everyones a gynocologist

G says:

The presence of the “box gap” has very little to do with the actual width of the hips and more to do with the angle that the leg bones sit within the hip (called the q angle).

Timothy says:

also looks like someones a lil jealous of the girl who stole your boyfriend , Sammy.

Stuart says:

“I know skinny girls who have don’t have box gaps and fat girls who do” – then wtf is the problem with the lust over it, this dissproves your point about having to have eating disorders to achieve box gap, which you previously state earlier in your rant. Before you start having a shitty day and start yelling and screaming about anything and everything (i understand i have those days), please think through your arguments before contradicting yourself in sequencing paragraphs.

Brrryyyyannnnnn!! says:

Too true!

A says:

dooooood. did your mum give you shitty genes and now no one likes your face?

yay for hips.

PaoloPardo says:

LOL.

Jimmity cricket says:

Its a hot part of a womans body.
Go get laid or something

Ah. Such a refreshing thing to see it here rather than us fems railing over ourselves to shun this page into light years away from here. The thing is with these images of women (and the mighty popular addicting time of porn by young uns and old uns of both genders), it can deflate the erectile and woman-boner in real life. One minute on the computer you’re buzzed up on dopamine yet when it comes time to play Barry White and lather up with baby oil… the brain seems to pack up shop, leaving all no option other than to keep being in instant-love with images instead of the real thing. Not to mention body-shaming… that’s a whole other cup of tea conversation. I’ll leave it there.

Jennifer says:

Did you write this because your girlfriend doesn’t have a box gap?

Gemma Clarke says:

Bitch, please. Grace has a box gap so big you could park a semi in it. Shoulda seen how many likes her ass got on insty this one time.

M says:

I’m a guy and box gaps are sexy. You mentioned wider hips = higher likelihood of the illusive gap. However, wider hips also = greater ability to birth healthy children (roughly) which triggers a primal attraction in men.

box gap = wider hips = healthy children = attraction

My logics probably flawed but you get the drift.

Maybe not so moronic and more biologically predetermined?

But fuck, who am I but another guy.

Sammy says:

Fuck I like intelligent replies, even if they disagree with my opinion. Keep coming back, M.

B says:

Beat me to it. Wider hips are arguably THE most important thing in base level physical attraction. The gap being in direct correlation with that would clearly indicate its a desirable trait. Which of course is what attraction is all about when it boils down to it.

tgmn says:

MAKES SENSE on an evolutionary basis, but that doesn’t mean there needs to be a facebook page, which gives young girls the idea that they need this thing to be attractive, or young boys the idea that they can make the young girls sweat about it if they don’t, actoively or passively.

What i mean by passive is that we should all remember those moments on facebook when you see in your news feed “17.5thousand of your chauvinist friends like ‘BOX GAP $W4G’” or some gay shit like that”

Skinny Longlegs says:

*Elusive

P.S. I’m a fella and when I stand with my feet together you can see an inch of daylight between my legs all the way from my ankles to my junk. Do your raging genes make you want to squirt a baby into my belly too?

ben says:

i think appreciation and labelling of the gap or box gap has been around for far longer, and I for one am a fan.

Eric says:

You realise that girls don’t have to be skinny to have a “box gap”, don’t turn this in to a weight related issue.

Bangers says:

Didn’t he say that exact thing in the article?

E says:

As the writer stated – “I know skinny girls who have don’t have box gaps and fat girls who do”

Gavin says:

Did you read what you wrote?

Tom says:

Learn how to read Eric you stupid prick

tommy says:

oh thank god i thought there was something i was missing about “the gap”. turns out there are other sane people out there. box gap is dumb

Anna says:

Sammy/hugo/laurent whoever the fuck he is… kills it… every time.

Someone says:

Yes. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thank you.
