This is Thin Privilege

Thin privilege is not having your co-workers question your breast reduction surgery. 

Tonight at work, I excitedly told my co-worker (who is also big, with bigger breasts) about how I finally for an appointment for breast reduction surgery, and she looked at me and said, 

"You know, Sophie, I hate to say it, but maybe if you just lost ten pounds, it wouldn’t be a problem…" 

When she saw the look on my face, she slipped out a “Just kidding.” Too little, too late.
