i know every single woman feels pressured to look a certain way and thin girls can get bullied and told to change themselves too but they suffer so much less than chubby girls and UNDENIABLY have thin privilege
As a former fatlogician I’ve called people skinny bitches before, and constantly gave them the “omg you need to eat more” speech. Just knowing what I personally handed out in thin-shaming, I can say thin people have been going through shit like this too. So please do not think that fat people are the only victims here.
In fact, I think people with eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia need legit mental help, whereas fat people who don’t exercise or watch what they eat just need to get off their fat ass and do something about it.
(And please no using hypothyroidism as an excuse. It’s manageable with meds, that is if the illness was PROPERLY DIAGNOSED by a doctor, not through self diagnosis)
Sorry for the rant, but shit like this makes me angry. It negates the stress that bulimic or anorexic patients go through, making their struggles not as valid as a fat person’s.
In a really bad mood now. Gonna reblog anything cumberbatch as therapy.
