The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

A thin person is trying to tell me thin shaming exists. When I told her you can’t be shamed for a privilege, she responded, “why does it bother you to know thin shaming exists, and that women’s bodies are scrutinized and objectified?” Ugh jfc those are not mutually exclusive! Apparently this woman…

Why do you get to decide who experiences what? 
You have no idea what thin people experience. You can only guess or assume.
I have experienced no privilege for being thin, but I have experienced a lot of bullying, threats, incompetent doctors, denied jobs, and a lot more. and yes, BECAUSE I WAS THIN. 
To think only fat people are body shamed and thin people are “at most” told to eat a sandwich is completely asinine. 
You have no right to tell people what they may or may not experience.
So please, stop talking about something you shouldn’t be talking about it. 

omg you again, gosh you get more and more annoying every time you talk to me

Actually I do know what thin people experience? I had an eating disorder and was thin for a number of years.  I was even underweight, and received harassment because of it.

It’s hilarious when thin people tell fat people WHO KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE THIN that they don’t know what they’re talking about.  I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum, and um, you’re the one who has no idea what you’re talking about.

Your body remains the ideal and default body. The vast majority of celebrities and famous people look like you.  Cartoons’ and fictional characters’ default size is yours. You can go into any “regular” mall and find clothes that fit you. You are not encouraged to starve yourself or purge your food. People believe your body can be natural. You are not believed to be lazy, poor, stupid, or a defect because of your body size. You are not told to kill yourself, that you’re a disease, that you should be shipped off to an island to be destroyed, that you shouldn’t be able to reproduce, that you’re a plague on humanity. People don’t say you’re what’s wrong with the world. People don’t make assumptions about your health.

"I’ve received no privilege for being thin" wow I can’t even begin to understand what that kind of denial might be like. Do people regularly compare you to animals? Do you have to pay twice as much for clothes that are twice as ugly? Are you regularly looking for representation of your body size in media, only to see it when people like you are the butt of a joke? Oh right. Nope.

If thin privilege weren’t a thing, the diet industry wouldn’t be making 80 billion dollars by convincing people they could be thin.  If thin privilege weren’t a thing, people wouldn’t be killing themselves to reach that goal. If thin privilege weren’t a thing, fat people would be equally represented in media, in government and politics; clothes in department stores would be available for all body types; cartoonists would stop equating fatness with laziness, greed, and corruption. But you’re right, your hurt feelings are so much more important than this.

So only YOUR hurt feelings matter? 
Alright then. 

Lol no? Hurt feelings don’t matter at all. Systematic oppression is what matters.  Which fat people experience, and thin people do not (in this one aspect, not to say they can’t be oppressed in other ways).  I love tho how I show privileged people about oppression and they see it as hurt feelings… because that’s all they can understand.


Whenever people say they’re surprised to hear that a certain kind of oppression still exists, what they’re really saying is that that oppression is invisible to them, and they’d really rather not think about it.


I’m really tired of hearing people who haven’t experienced a type of oppression say how they’d feel if they were in my position, experiencing that type of oppression. How do you know you’d feel that way, when you don’t know what it’s like?

Exactly. 

Imagine a wall full of circular holes, that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.

Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.

Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality —  comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.

“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries.

“I helped you get the drill!!!!” the circle shrieks.

“Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.

The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion. 

“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”

“YOU’RE BEING UNEQUAL AND HURTING MY FEELINGS!” the circle wails. “I DON’T SUPPORT YOUR HOLE IF IT DOESN’T FIT ME TOO. GIVE ME MY DRILL BACK.” 

“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”

“I ONLY CARED WHEN I THOUGHT YOU’D MAKE A HOLE EVERYONE COULD FIT THROUGH. YOU’RE PERPETUATING INEQUALITY!!!”

“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”

“I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN A CIRCLE, OMG. I’VE HAD TO WORK HARD ALL MY LIFE TOO. YOU’RE JUST BEING BIGOTED AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I CAN’T CONTROL, JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU.”

“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”

“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”

“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.

It’s kind of sad

I’m continually surprised by goyim who don’t know that they can’t call us Jews. Only Jews can call each other Jews. The rest of y’all need to say Jewish people. Just saying Jews if you are not a Jew is anti-semitic, and we will give you dirty looks (and feel v uncomfortable).
