This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

thin privilege is not being embarrassed in gym class when they did the Presidential Physical Fitness Testing - especially the flex arm hang

fat discrimination is not putting a multiplicative addition to time based on weight

because a 145 pound person holding himself up for 60 seconds is somehow an “A”

yet a 230 pound person of the same height holding himself up for 30 seconds is an “F”

even though anyone with knowledge of how muscles work and energy consumption would know that the 230 pound person exerted almost the same amount of energy and muscle control and thus should have gotten that A (i might be a bit bitter)
