This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

I wanted to say thank you for making this blog, it really motivates me to stay fit, healthy and lean; to take responsibility for my own actions and to never blame others for my weaknesses. Reverse thinspo FTW!

How are you “taking responsibility for your own actions” by relying on what you’ve defined as external validation (reading a blog about thin privilege and fat oppression) for what you believe keeps you “healthy and lean”? 

If you really want to “take responsibility for your own actions,” then don’t use the acquisition of privilege as motivation. Do it because you have sound, objective evidence on your side, or else realize that you’re just another jackass masturbating over a perceived surplus of social currency and this has nothing to do with health or responsibility.
