Not content to just Photoshop its models to look thinner and younger, megaretailer Forever 21 is now airbrushing out their kneecaps. Kneecaps! Sooo gross right?
Ironically, this is called a “Bodycon Skirt.”
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why this is so douchebaggy. As if women didn’t have enough to feel self-conscious about when it comes to our bodies (stomach, hips, boobs, butt, arms, legs, chin, nose, anything covered in skin, etc.) now we’re supposed to feel weird about our kneecaps? And not just how they look, but the very fact that we possess them in the first place?! Is Forever 21 passing memos around the office that say things like, “Out this season: Floral prints, leggings, KNEECAPS”?
Thanks Erica Schreiner for the tip!
