Thin privilege is not having people say you’re carrying ‘extra’ weight, like your ‘real’ body is a thin body wearing a coat made of fat or something.
A fat body IS a body. The weight on it isn’t ‘extra,’ it’s a part of the body.
This disassociation of a body with its fat has to stop. It frames fat people as broken thin people, as semi-people who will someday become real people once they shed that horrid ‘extra’ weight like caterpillars turning into butterflies.
It’s gross. Stop it.
Can we talk about something for a hot minute?
So this Australian company is run by some kick arse ladies who are pretty much the fatties gift to the world. I can’t actually dress myself anymore without a 17 Sundays element in my outfit.
