This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Thin privilege is seeing a so-called feminist post an anti-prostitution image depicting clients as fat and therefore unshaved, unwashed, ugly, and sexist. Because of course, thin men can’t be sleazes, pimps, or misogynists and fat phobia shouldn’t be a feminist issue, what with the intense policing of women’s bodies and all…….

Thin privilege is seeing another feminist promote revolutionary action by “showing” that while the people of Egypt is rising, the French are fat men literally lying on their couch in front of the television. (The same person had also attacked former National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen because he is blind in one eye and did not understand why I thought this was ableism and had nothing to do with, you know, his being a huge hateful bigot.)

I’m still a feminist, I just dissassociate myself from such people.
