This is Thin Privilege

Thin privilege is not having TWO coach fulls of football fans shouting abuse at you.

Yesterday was my first time out of the house in a while, I’m agoraphobic and rarely go out… I had a photoshoot though I was all dressed up and feeling very confident. As I was walking through town two coaches full of fans going to a football game happened to be sat at the lights, they shouted abuse pointed and laughed and banged on the windows to get my attention. quite a few other people made passing comments on my appearance in the street too. I got home feeling very defeated and unwilling to go out ever again.

Thin privilege is not having your mental health damaged by rude strangers in the street based on how you look.
