Thin privilege is not being told you’ll never find love or romance until you change your body size.
This is such a common experience in the fat community, and I’m holding everyone who’s experienced it in my heart tonight.

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.
