I’m not here to tell you that your personal grievances don’t matter.Rather, I’m here to put those feelings into perspective. Dominant or privileged groups benefit, often in unconscious ways, from the disempowerment of subordinated or targeted groups. What pisses people like us off is people like you who make excuses for everyone. It pretty much boils down to the amount of calories you eat and how active you are. You all should be held to the same legal punishment. Not everyone is fat because they stuff their mouth with unhealthy food and most of you don't seem to tolerate or accept that either. To be quite honest, a lot of people don’t actually care about your health or whatever you do with your own body. Hyping people up to kill themselves just to save your personal feelings is just as wrong. When a doctor misdiagnosed a patient, they can be sued, fired, fined, jailed, and lose their license. A lot of people who are anti-fat acceptance and anti-feminist aren't bad people; they mean anti-feminist not as "women suck" but as "certain feminists have shut down men's abuse shelters, been against male rape victims being legally recognized as being raped, and are against gender neutral custody laws, they suck." If that's your only problem (not outright sexist/racist/homophobic things) try talking to them anyway and they might turn out to be totally decent. Everyone is entitled to their own belief/opinion/point of view but it seems like no one in the "Anti-fat-phobia" side is aware that some people are fat simply because their condition doesn't allow them to be anything else or their treatment at the moment keeps them from losing weight efficiently. He kicked me, punched me, restrained me, used his weight on me, grabbed my hair and drug me across the pavement on my face and elbows. I swim for my highschool team Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and all the days in between I run 2 miles and other small exercises. Should I still take a "rest day" and relax once a week? I have never experienced a doctor dismissing my concerns with a “lose weight, feel great! And I can open an article with my measurements without fear of judgment. And as such, I have never experienced fat discrimination. I am writing this article from a privileged perspective; and 2. And I’m only thin anyway because I have an eating disorder, and trust me, that is not a privilege.” And I hear what you’re saying.I am not here to damn, guilt, or embarrass thin people. Because it’s so easy to fall back on tired old excuses for why we’re not privileged—and I see this a lot when the topic of thin privilege is broached. But I think it’s time for us to look at these excuses (and how they don’t hold up in the grand scheme of things) a little more closely. Oppression Let me start off by saying this: Having your feelings hurt sucks.

I will be taking the time to choose my replacement, as I have been here since the blog’s inception and am the longest standing admin.littletinypancakes-deactivated2 asked: You clearly missed my point and I wasn't throwing any shade or trying to create any sort of argument. The fact that some people have no option over whether they're fat or not at a particular moment needs to be taken into account before assuming they're fat because of poor nutrition. There are no medical illnesses that makes you gain 200lbs for example. Where have we said that people are only fat because they’re stuffing their face? From what I've seen so far these blogs always go the second and never even consider the first option. Before you come slinging any shade, I suggest you go pull up some receipts of us saying so. I’m not even going to continue with that, but you catch my drift. My daughter has been in between Georgia and New Jersey from since May. Many proponents of "thin privilege" also make claims that there are no adverse effects of being extremely overweight or obese.400-lb woman: I can't fit into an airplane seat so I can't go to the All-You-Can-Eat Convention unless I buy two seats! It is with great trepidation that I have made the tough decision to leave TNTP.
