Should they have photoshopped her body? Absolutely not. Not only does it not need it but the crossfit community has always been supportive of a more muscular female figure and being a magazine about crossfit you would think they would get it. In the grand scheme of things is it a big deal? Not really. I didn't even know the magazine existed until now and I have a feeling that a majority of people commenting saying they are canceling their subscription don't have a subscription to begin with.

Sometimes I feel like we just need to push the keyboard back, take a deep breath, and focus on things that really deserve our outrage.

Exactly. Enough with all the bandwagon indignation.
