I truly do believe that the fatties are right, thin people are treated better. We're given more respect, we're given more opportunities, people are nicer to us, I definitely get hit on more than my chubby friends do. The fatties aren't wrong about all that. This world is a much better world to live in if you're thin.
The thing is, being thin is not a privilege. If only certain people could be thin, then yes, the fatties might have a point, thin privilege might actually be a thing. But every single person on this planet has the ability to be healthy, to be fit, and to look good. There isn't a single exception to that.
So as far as I'm concerned, every little benefit of being thin, the way people treat me better because I'm not the size of your average solar system, I've earned that. I earn that every time I go on a run, I earn that every time I say "no thank you" to a donut, I earn that every time I cook a healthy meal rather than stopping at McDonald's. And privileges aren't things you earn, they're things you're born with.
So that's why thin privilege doesn't exist. Thin benefits exist, but they're not privileges, because they're things that everyone is entitled to if they just put down their forks and go for a goddamn run.
And the idea that being thin is a privilege just supports the lie that fatties love the most: that they're not responsible for their weight.
