Well this just looks painful. Don't know what we're talking about? Look closer. 

 

Companies committing Photoshop fails - this is nothing new in an environment in which models must always look 'perfect' - but we think this is the first time we've actually seen a young woman's crotch cut in half (the fact a piece of her hip is shaved off seems like nothing new). 

Affordable, everyday American clothing brand Target has come under fire after the store's website featured a photo of a teen model showing off a bikini meant for 'juniors'. But, the thing is, she was also showing off a shorter-than-anatomically-possible crotch.

 

It seems the brand has chopped almost half of her crotch off in an attempt to make her legs look longer and her pelvis shorter. Is this a thing that's often done? Do we really need to add 'length of crotch' to our long list of body worries?

Definitely the most disturbing part of this whole debacle is that these possible tactics are being used for the brand's junior line - which markets to teen girls. Yes, the model is 23-year-old R'el Dade, but they're sending a message out to girls far younger.

Tsk tsk. Long live long crotches.

DOUBLE OUCH: It seems someone may have also taken issue with the form of her armpit (or, to be fair, is just really bad at cutting out images).
