If you’re not going to read the blog carefully enough to see the many times I’ve responded to why thin people experiencing some of what’s shown on this blog (or being called names or told to eat a sandwich) doesn’t negate their thin privilege, then don’t expect me to answer asks or publish comments that rehash that same exact thing.
Thin hurt feelings because this blog isn’t making that thing that happened to you as important as the systematic and widespread things that happen to fat people (typically much worse than being called names or having to take in a baggy pair of pants) is an example of thin privilege. Everywhere, all over the place, people are talking about thin hurt feelings. Thin love. Thin hopes and aspirations. Thin success and failure. Everywhere else you’re the lead character in all the stories worth reading or watching.
But not here.
If you aren’t interested in learning what privilege means and specifically what thin privilege means, then I’m not going to let you derail this conversation.
Any reblogs and comments that try to marginalize the systematic oppression of fat people with, “That’s not thin privilege because it happened to me once, and I’m thin,” are going to get you blocked, period.
You’re not going to derail this conversation and make it about thin you. Me not letting you derail this conversation or making this conversation about your thin hurt feelings and experiences doesn’t make me a bigot. It makes you a bigot to expect a blog about fat discrimination is yet another stage for your well-stroked ego.
Finally, if you’re not interested in reflecting on how most insults fat people get are a direct consequence of fat hate and discrimination, especially as indoctrinated in women, then don’t expect me to educate you.
