    Do you suffer from thin privilege...

    ...not you, Dilly...

    &, while we're at it, we'll make it a poll.

    Personally, I believe that everyone should be respected whatever their body type and there certainly exists an insanity in the fashion world where tiny ladies are foregrounded as the normal size; this does cause real anxieties and issues for growing ladies, teens, so that should be addressed and to some extent has and is being addressed.

    On the other side, some folks that claim to be victims, rightly or wrongly, are rather aggressive in their attacks on others who are also just everyday human beings, and these folks very often use cliches and labels to dehumanise others. One could suggest, and I would agree, that if you're a member of a 'disadvantaged group' and you attack others with labels and dehumanising discourse then you become part of the problem rather than the solution.


    Here we go, a new term to me: thin privilege:

    How do I post these pictures???

    The victimhood sweepstakes are in high gear. Claim yours today!

    Name your oppressor, win a prize! It's all the rage.

    I speak from experience.

    Wow! That's an achievement. Well done. It's worthy of congrats because healthy is better. It's not about body shape.

    I wonder what the bint in the vid (and do I detect a kiwi accent in her past there?...or is that Canadian? ) would rail about for people with uneven eyes and non-symetrical faces.

    ^ were you talking about the Welsh lady or the dual-passport Aussie/'Merican?

    The 'skinny'/'thin' lady is actually quite a stunner with a great figure - hardly skinny or thin, imho.



    (Of course, I'd need a bikini pic [front and back] to be absolutely scientifically certain...)

    Some are born all 3.

    Some are born none out of 3.

    Lucky ones could be said to be 'privileged' but it is hardly a sufferance.

    In any case, it is not the responsibility of society to try and put their finger on the scales at every turn to try and ensure that unlucky fat ugly dumb fucks end up with the same outcomes in life as the lucky fucks.

    If you are unlucky at least you are luckier than being born a chimpanzee or a seahorse or a tardigrade so its a glass is half full situation.

    I could not pull wear a figure-hugging tank top as a skinny guy, I'd look ridiculous; so I think it goes both ways. Skinny or large, people should be able to wear what they want free from harassment/ silent but obvious judgment.

    Look if they are happy that's all that matters.

    Me.....well seeing stuff like that on a regular basis and them nursing a 32oz 7/11 big gulp coke and a basket full of processed food makes me wanna say "Y'all need to put a food reduction gizmo over your intake hole"

    You need to check your common-sense/logical privilege (and appreciate that some people are simply fukcing misfits looking for excuses).

    "Thin Privilege" naught but a fad...

    http://www.healthdata.org/news-relea...-new-data-show

    SEATTLE—Today, 2.1 billion people – nearly 30% of the world’s population – are either obese or overweight, according to a new, first-of-its kind analysis of trend data from 188 countries. The rise in global obesity rates over the last three decades has been substantial and widespread, presenting a major public health epidemic in both the developed and the developing world.
