This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Thin privilege is not having your high school crush (who you know has feelings for you too) tell his friends that he has a crush on your best friend (who happens to share your first name) because confessing to liking your thinner best friend (even though it was untrue) - is less “embarrassing” than admitting having a crush on you.

Thin privilege is not having that same guy (who you did get together with briefly, but not sleep with) tell you years later, he dumped his latest, slim girlfriend because she was “too flabby” when naked.
