is being able to eat like a pig when most of the world is starving to death. lolol.
is being able to eat like a pig and claim fit people are like “animals” for working out and caring about appearance.
-yes that was actually said by a “fat acceptance”…
Lmfao I don’t seriously believe in fat privilege. There’s NO SUCH THING AS FAT PRIVILEGE AND THIN PRIVILEGE. Everyones got problems in life, both sides need to stop complaining that others are ‘privileged’ because they don’t have to deal with the same problems as they do. Also, I said EAT LIKE pigs, figure of speech lol.
Thin privilege doesn’t mean that you don’t have problems in life. Thin privilege means that society treats you differently because you are thin and that’s the truth. Thin privilege doesn’t mean your life is always sunshines and rainbows.
Thin privilege means that
- Your eating disorder will be taken seriously, and not brushed off with “You can’t have an ED…you’re fat.” OR ENCOURAGED “But…you’re still fat, Keep going!”.
- Thin privilege means that any store you walk into will carry your size, even though the average size is a 12 to 14.
- Thin privilege means that when you are sick your doctor will genuinely try to find out what is wrong with you instead of attributing your problem to your weight and telling you to lose a couple pounds.
- Thin privilege means that no one lectures you about healthy eating when they see you eating junk food in public.
Because thin = healthy right? Let’s completely ignore the fact that HEALTHY HABITS MAKE HEALTHY BODIES. Notice I said healthy bodies and not thin bodies, because they’re not the same thing.
Lol let’s just ignore the fact that people whose socioeconomic status exists in or around the poverty line are more likely to be overweight because cheap food is usually higher in calories, fats and carbs. Let’s just ignore the fact that one doesn’t have to “eat like a pig” to be fat because, ya know, differences in metabolism and body structure/distribution of adipose tissue don’t really exist. -_-
Oh, and can we just ignore the fact that a thin can eat whatever they want, when ever, and not only not be judged, but actually be congratulated?
Yeah, let’s just pretend that the only reason people are ever fat is because of a lack of self control and a huge desire to eat everything in sight and that all thin people are automatically beasts of self control and the moral authority on what can and should go in another persons body.
Seriously, people need to not speak.
Sorry for the lack of activity. Things have been really busy for Sabrina and I with going back to school and various other things in life.
Plus my camera broke. :C
But we will be back to it as soon as we can.
We love you all.
I’m trying to find an eloquent way to say this, but fuck it:
I’m getting really fucking sick of seeing the same shopped pictures of size twelve, cis gender, white chicks with hour glass figures, huge tits and slamming assess. Or horribly done porn sets of women larger than a twelve in garish…
[Image Description: A “Health At Every Size” poster. An image of a naked fat white person with a curvy-ish figure sitting with their back to the camera. Their hair is pulled to the side so that the tattoo between their shoulders is visible; they also have a tatto on their lower back. Text at the bottom of the poster says, “I stand for decorating your body as you like, no matter how much there is to decorate. Stop weight bigotry.” End description.]
NO MATTER HOW MUCH THERE IS TO DECORATE
I want to “like” this ten billion times. Cause I love tattoos - love them SO MUCH - and have easily a half-dozen sort of nascent ideas for ink I want in various places, but even if I could afford them, I am still unsure. Because 99% of all the tattoo photos out there are of thin people, so I always wonder, will this look even close to how I picture it in my head, when it’s on my skin instead of a skinny person’s?
So I kind of think I need to adopt “no matter how much there is to decorate” as my mantra re: tattoos for myself.
Thin privilege is never being asked if you’ve considered Weight Watchers or another “slimming” group.
Being thin isn’t a freaking privilege. It’s something I have to work at to maintain every day of my life. I know it’s harder for others to keep their weight down. But don’t downplay those of us who work our asses off to be thin.
Thin privilege is being able to shop at more clothing stores than I can, whereas I am either sequestered to a special store of forced to shop online. Thin privilege is having options when it comes to cute underwear, because God forbid a fat person ever get laid. Did you know that American Eagle won’t hire a person if they’re over a certain clothing size? Have you ever had a complete stranger come up to you and tell you to change your body because it’s “unhealthy”, when this person does not know you from fucking Eve? THAT is thin privilege. Thin privilege is not being told every goddamn day of your life by countless media outlets, so called professionals, and loved ones that you need to change how you look, in one way or another, because you don’t fit in. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN MOOED AT? NO? THEN YOU’RE FUCKING PRIVILEGED!!!
