I’ve gained a little weight (thyroid — oh, joy!), and I realized I’m dealing with fear. You see, I wear size 26-28. If I gain much more weight, I won’t be able to find hardly any clothes in a brick and mortar store — any at all (not just the expensive, poorly made ones I get today).
If I gain a little more weight, I will not fit into a single airplane seat any more. (I fit now with an extender.)
If I gain a little more weight, I will not fit into chairs with arms any more.
Thin privilege is being able to do any of these things! I’ve known I have privilege for a long time now, but everyone once in awhile I really GET that I have some thin privilege even though I’m a pretty fat person.
