wulfhunt said: wow imagine being fat and losing weight, and being proud of it, you're not allowed to do that in the world of 'thin privilege', like, if you do something good for your own body and health, and dare to fucking speak about it. you will be crucified by these fat lazy fucks who look at it as an insult upon themselves when they're too fucking fat to do anything about them. fucking pathetic.

So according to titp, 5’6 and 215 lbs is a small fat. That is a bmi of 34.7, well into the obese range. So would someone that is simply overweight not be considered fat at all?

idk, I’m 5’6 and 200lbs (post baby) and I don’t think…

noooo, muscle is denser than fat, meaning it weighs more. Like how iron weighs more than wood.

Um what? A pound of iron weighs the same as a pound of wood….

How is it that no one understands this. A pound of iron weighs the same as a pound of wood, but they’re not the same size, are they? Same as muscle and fat. A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle, but a pound of muscle takes up less space than a pound of fat… a piece of iron the same size as a piece of wood will weigh more, because iron weighs more than wood. Same applies to muscle and fat.

Hey thanks for repeating exactly what I just said.

idk, I’m 5’6 and 200lbs (post baby) and I don’t think I’m anywhere near obese. Haven’t you said before that BMI doesn’t tell you shit? The well known fact that muscle outweighs fat is still a thing right? Pretty sure if someone’s got a 6pack and can squat 400lbs at 5’6 they could easily weigh at least 200. (I totally agree that “thin privilege” is a load of shit, though. I’ve been skinny now I’m overweight..people treat me the same!)

That’s not a ‘well known fact’, because it’s a myth. Muscle doesn’t weigh more than fat. It takes up less room. 

Stones weigh more than feathers, but they aren’t measured in volume, like fat and muscle.

Anonymous said: So being called anorexic constantly and being told that I'm too thin isn't skinny shaming? Being told that no man would ever want me because I don't have curves like a "real woman" isn't skinny shaming?

No, it’s misogyny. Misogyny places a woman’s value entirely in her attractiveness which holds all women up to impossible beauty standards. 

Thin people will never face discrimination like fat people do. Society collectively discriminates against being fat (media, fashion, medicine, public places like the beach, etc.) while society places thinness on a pedestal. 

Can thin people feel bad about themselves? Absolutely. And that really sucks. But that’s where it ends for thin people. Calling it skinny shaming, and saying it is just as bad as fat shaming derails the focus on the actual problem that is fat discrimination. 

No, the actual problem is that society feels like it has the authority to dictate how a woman should look, regardless of being appealing to men. Fat people don’t hold exclusivity on this issue. 

Your argument assumes that being thin automatically means you have the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, which is both factually and contextually incorrect. And so is the concept that fat people’s discrimination is the only thing worth fighting for when we talk about bodies. 

The message should be that nobody gets an opinion on anyone elses’ body, not just fat people. 

And you don’t even realise that by segregating us, you are actually making it okay for people to comment on thin people’s bodies.

Good for you!
