This is Thin Privilege

This blog promotes self harm and is against tumblr guidelines.

Just because you people are insane and cult-like does not mean you can promote self harm. See the community guidelines:

Promotion or Glorification of Self-Harm. Don’t post content that actively promotes or glorifies self-harm. This includes content that urges or encourages others to: cut or injure themselves; embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or commit suicide rather than, e.g., seeking counseling or treatment, or joining together in supportive conversation with those suffering or recovering from depression or other conditions. Dialogue about these behaviors is incredibly important and online communities can be extraordinarily helpful to people struggling with these difficult conditions. We aim for Tumblr to be a place that facilitates awareness, support and recovery, and we will remove only those posts or blogs that cross the line into active promotion or glorification of self-harm.

[Removed this bottom part bc I already took a screen shot of this]


I’m going to be completely honest when I say that I have absolutely no problem sending tumblr the 3,000 troll message I have collected since last may which include death threats, threats of physical violence, threats of sexual abuse, threats of future death / disease / sickness, and people hoping that all of the above happen to us for running this blog.

I also have absolutely no problem sending tumblr the hundreds of messages I have from people telling us that we saved their life, changed their outlook on their body and their wellbeing etc.

You are engaging in trolling behavior, aside from the examples you gave are ridiculous. We didn’t make up intuitive eating. It has been used by dietitians, nutritionists and eating disorder clinics for decades to teach people how to have a good relationship with food. Just an FYI binge eating, which is a behavior that is mostly done by thin people, is not having a good relationship with food. 

We didn’t write the post about the doctor but yeah, she was fat shaming and ignorant. I would also like to note how trolls continually tell us people with PhDs don’t count and only MDs know what’s really going on with bodies, until someone with a PhD agrees with you. The third post you point to is a person with a BMI of 31 who has high blood pressure and instead of a doctor looking into possible causes for why they continually go to the doctor with high blood pressure, their doctor assumes it is due to their weight. Even when research shows people with a BMI between 30-35 have a lower mortality rate and risk of disease than someone above or below that range.

Basically. Have fun.


PS. I just want to note if this blog was to be pulled I would do everything in my power to make sure it was started up again somewhere else. We aren’t going anywhere.
