This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Thin privilege is your sister not lording her ‘healthy diet’ over you and how she’s so much healthier because she doesn’t eat bread or pasta despite me having a much healthier lifestyle than her.

It’s her not saying “oh, chips are so bad for you” when I was trying my aunt’s homemade salsa.
It’s her not crying that she needs to lose 40lbs by her next checkup or else god forbid the doctor be unimpressed, while I’ve always been bigger than her despite my best efforts.

It’s not being mocked by your family and doctors when you don’t have an apple or vegetables, when they know I have bad allergic reactions to practically every vegetable and raw fruit under the sun.
It’s not your substitute teacher suggesting you become a vegetarian just to lose weight, not even for health or animals.
