Loathe: Old Navy’s Camel Toe

I am sorry that this post is slightly vulgar, but this made me laugh out loud yesterday when I saw it. You would have thought, given that Old Navy is a very big, powerful, and professional company (who probably has access to great photo retouchers,) that the camel toe would have disappeared from this swimsuit shot. Alas, no.

I am presuming this was not intentional, which should raise questions about their editing process.

And again, I am sorry for the vulgarity. I makes me uncomfortable just to look at it. But it did make me laugh very hard yesterday, and for that, I thank Old Navy.

    And what I loathe is the camel toe phobia. Right, I get it, it shouldn’t appear in an Old Navy shot, but…  Is the female body really sooooo embarassing and vulgar, that everyone is making a huge deal of it?

    ya, whats a cameltoe? (not literarlly asking). i don’t think of it as anything, it happens, whatever. sure it’s not the most lady like thing to occur if you’re the queen of england, but women have vaginas and it happens. AND IF IT CAN HAPPEN IN A PHOTOSHOOT, it will more than likely fosho happen in real life.

    yesterday i was just at the beach with my friends, and they had cameltoes that i thought were funny, but they acted non-chalant about it, as i think they should (granted my friends and i are 20 and were high as a kite)., so who needs people to be like OMGAWD YOU HAVE A CAMEL TOE GASSSSSSSSP. camel toes simply happen, and as long as other people or society doesn’t make nothing out of something out of it, then i think it’s perfectly fine! 

    i kinda appreciate a good camel toe.. on young/attractive people anyway. it is almost sexy, an embracement, and exudes a good carefree/genuine attitude. not to say people should purposely force a camel toe, but if it happens, it’s not a big deal.

    Yes, it shouldn’t be in an Old Navy shot, that is precisely the problem, not the fact that the female body is vulgar. It is like a nipple, when the nipple is intentionally visible, it looks fine. When it is blatantly on display but shouldn’t be, it looks a bit offensive. Also, I don’t think everyone is making a huge deal out of it, I think it is just me having a good laugh at a Photoshop fiasco.

    Ok, now you are being hypocritical. So, cameltoe is ok on young, attractive people, but it is not on an unattractive, old person? Hmm… The point is, the cameltoe was not supposed to be visible here, and it looks bad. On a beach, anything goes. That’s a whole different story.

    i’m not being hypocritical. it’s like… i wouldn’t want to see an older lady with saggier tits go braless as opposed to a young model. STILL that’s not a perfect analogy of what i meant. i simply oddly appreciated my friends camel toes OK

    And that’s fine. But the whole world shouldn’t be exposed to this girl’s cameltoe.
