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?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

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)

You ain’t got people legitimately denying you job and educational opportunities because of the fact that you are thin.

You will not have people taking your picture in disgust and have them use it as ‘motivation’ to not be like you.

You are represented in all forms of media in an overwhelmingly POSITIVE light.

Plain and simple. There is no place in this world where thin people are not put up as the ideal.

So can we stop acting as if someone being individually teased for being skinny is the same as the systematic way that fat people are told their bodies are always wrong because morality?

lukesos:

why do people assume birth control is only for women wanting to have sex/unprotected sex? birth control regulates menstruation for women with irregular periods or problems like anemia, birth control helps with cramps, it helps with other hormone related things like acne, and it helps women with endometriosis, which if left untreated can cause infertility?

why do you use the debate over birth control as a way to slut shame women?

Idk it looks more like Albert’s just sick of explainin shit to people over and over again

Actually you’re probably right. Einstein was a huge critic of the act of committing things to memory that could easily just be looked up.

He thought it was a waste of time, effort, and mental resources that could be out to much better use.

Einstein would probably be the type to just ask you to Google something. Hell if for no other reason than if you asked him something he would say that he didn’t remember it himself.

besides people — like Einstien — would have to discover things to make them ‘googleable’ jfc

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.
