You know how we feel about the "thigh-gap" trend. (Spoiler alert: not good. While one body type definitely isn't "better" than any other—so of course there's nothing wrong with naturally having a thigh gap—going to extreme measures to try to create space where you don't have any just isn't healthy.)

A new Kickstarter campaign apparently feels the same way: The idea behind Barbell Denim is that it will be "designed for athletes…made to fit comfortably over muscular legs by accommodating your quads and butt without forcing you to buy larger sizes for the small waist you work so hard for," according to its Kickstarter page. "These are the anti-thigh gap jeans," Barbell Denim co-founder Hunter Molzen told  ABC News. "Athletes work hard for their strong, meaty thighs, and they should be proud of them. It's how human beings were built to function."

The jeans will come in women's and men's sizes and will be made with a flexible denim fabric and "high tensile-strength stitching" so that you can move around comfortably in them, per the Kickstarter page.

They're not available yet, but get this: Barbell Apparel named a $15,000 goal when they created the campaign, but backers have already pledged $358,673 (at the time of publication), with 30 more days to go.
