thin privilege is not having to look at weight limits when purchasing a groupon activity

I am going to be showing someone around Washington DC and was looking for something fun and unusual to do.  I was upset to find that Segway tours, paragliding, hot air-ballooning, and flying lessons have weight limits well under 300 pounds.  Even if I knew what I weighed currently, I don’t know what my friend weighs and I shouldn’t have to ask in order to do something like this.

I know damn well that they can make a motor that will haul my fat ass up a hill or into the air.  They choose not to use a bigger motor which makes it accessible only to people who weigh under a certain amount.
