    Apparently I’m ”privileged” because I’m thin. Cause when an overweight person talks about their flaws they’re brave, but if for some reason I randomly talk about mine or dare to love my body, I have a privelege. Little these idiots know I’ve been overweight and I have IBS and anxiety that doesn’t let me gain weight now. I hate fake body positivy movements.
    We all have a different body type, deal with it. Don’t create a bad movements with fake intentions of being good, to simply bring people down due to your own insecurities.
    I’m not privileged. I go through alot, however I eat healthy, I workout, I take care of myself and I love my body. And that is not wrong.
    Also these people apparently think petite or think women don’t have stretch marks or celulite, like… every human has it. Just grow up please.

    • You are beautiful and amazing inside and out, don’t let anyone tell you differently @marikofujimoto, embrace and love every part of yourself Mariko, be positive about your body and appearance sweetie, look in the mirror and smile at the wonderful person you see looking back at you hun, you are more than a number on a scale Mariko, you are unique in your own incredible way, always believe in yourself and keep going forward with brightness in mind, body and spirit, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent Mariko, stay strong, you are never alone :) <3 (hugs)

    • @marikofujimoto yeah, that’s one of the points of that discussion, as a society we see a fat person and assume they are unhealthy while thin people are assumed to be healthy, with some overlooking of serious problems due to this bias, but the people who talk about that kind of privilege don’t necessarily erase your own experience (e.g. http://thisisthinprivilege.org/faq#eatingdisorders)
