This challenge started in China but has made its way to the US.
This is a new internet challenge that makes the challenger, mostly females, hold a 8.5 X 11″ piece of paper horizontally over their waste. If the paper covers their waste then we say that they are “paper thin”. Obviously, this challenge can lead to body shaming of contestants as well as unhealthy tactics to become “paper thin”. As if young girls didn’t have enough pressure from their peers and the media on how they should look, this challenge comes along which could push them over the edge.
