Thin privilege is not having to use qualifiers to describe your body, even on a tumblr dedicated to showing the discrimination against your body type.You know what, I’m fat. I live a sedentary lifestyle, I don’t go to the gym, and I eat all sorts of junk food. I don’t have any qualifiers. I do these things because they make me happy.
A lot of people write in to TITP to say they’re fat but make a point of saying they exercise plenty and eat healthy, in order to justify being treated like a human being.
I don’t need to justify my weight to anyone. It doesn’t matter whether I do anything to prevent being fat or not, and it doesn’t matter whether I do anything to make sure I’m healthy or not. I deserve just as much respect and good treatment as any other human being.
To clarify, this isn’t a dig at people who use qualifiers when they submit (especially as it’s often relevant) - it’s a dig at a society that makes people feel they need to justify why they should be the exception to being treated like shit.
