Thin privilege doesn’t make you a bad person or one with super special benefits.

Thin privilege doesn’t make you a bad person or one with super special benefits.

The super special benefit is not facing the obstacles placed in the way of fat folks. Your body size is mostly or always included, and you don’t have to constantly think about it.

Privilege is unearned, but it’s not something you need to feel bad or guilty about. Let’s work to extend those privileges to the most marginalized bodies, too.
