"I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me."
"i’m into everything that irritates my soul, confuses my mind, and twists my head."
"Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?
And does that suck?
But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.
And that’s not the same for fat folk.
When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.
And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.
That’s thin privilege."
Let’s Talk About Thin Privilege — Everyday Feminism (via samanticshift)
I’ll be sure to remind every person that suffers from an eating disorder that they are actually privileged. And to every child born with the genetic code that leaves their body thin that actually they don’t deserve to look how they look and should feel guilty about it. How about instead of perpetuating ignorance, and putting people in small boxes, we look at how everyone with difference in shapes, sizes and colors should be just how they are. No privilege, no minority, just people. Stop this martyr bullshit and grow the fuck up. You want society to be different, then be different in society.
