I hear the children’s section usually carries an excellent selection of suits tailored to fit a developed woman’s frame.
Oh, you mean like being told the guys that date you are “dogs” (because apparently “only dogs like bones”).
Or being told that the guys who date you are “shallow” (because apparently “only shallow men date skinny girls”).
Or being told that the guys who date you are “not real men” (because apparently “real men like curves”).
or gay because “real women have curves”
or pedophiles because “skinny girls look like prepubescent boys”
Anonymous asked: So someone just submitted this to TITP: "I tried to point out that obesity is a result of genetics, and that none of that would really meaningfully impact the size of an individual" - Seriously? Junk food and a sedentary life doesn't "meaningfully impact" a person's weight? It's all just "the result of genetics"?? How deluded can these people be? o_O
either VERY deluded, or very good trolls.
Anonymous asked: here's a fun one: i posted on facebook about having a COLD. Someone actually twisted that to mean that I must have a health condition and that's why I'm so thin.
maybe you sneezed out all of your body fat, you never know!
Anonymous asked: FAs don't seem to understand that no-one would have a problem with TiTP if the focus was on fat people's experiences alone, and not about blaming thin people or claiming oppression over nothing. Simply changing the phrasing from "thin privilege is x" to "my fat experience is x" would make all the difference in the world. I'd love to see a blog like that.
People would still have problems with them giving out medical advice and discouraging people from listening to doctors and whatnot. A blog like that would need entirely different mods, I just don’t think the mods of TITP could manage to run a civil, decent blog.
But yes, 99% of the problem people have with TITP is that they do, despite vehemently insisting they don’t, make their entire blog about thin people and their presumed experiences, not the actual experiences of fat people.
I’ve seen very, very few people against TITP deny that fat people face unfair and shitty treatment.
Anonymous asked: Anyone else hate how any time you vent about thin shaming, someone comes along and says 'what about fat people?'
Anonymous asked: what happened to your adrenal system exactly? are you okay now, or was it permanent?
Honestly, I forget what it was related to in regards to my other health problems (there were so many, with so much overlap).
My body had all but quit producing adrenaline, my doctor was shocked at how low the levels were.
Luckily, I managed to pull through and as far as I know, I am perfectly fine now :)
sophie-marshmallow asked: Apparently thin privilege is being denied the fact anything bad ever happens to thin women. To be told that we are undeserving of support from other women who may or may not share our body type. I have not seen you actively marginalise anyone based on weight, unlike TITP The world is not a kind place to all women, their blog actively harms thin women, it allows for others to disregard sexism, abuse, neglect etc. simply on the basis that we have thin privilege. thin = deserving to suffer.
it’s actually shocking (and completely appalling) the lengths they have gone to to deny thin people’s problems.
I just can’t believe that they actually want “equality” among the different weights; they want to throw it back at thin people until they get over it.
Anonymous asked: TITP's tags are ridiculous. The submission about the 7 year old who wanted another donut is tagged "body policing"! So, apparently a family member can't even show concern over a 7 year old's weight because it's "body policing"? What would TITP rather have parents do? Just let their kids eat whatever unhealthy crap they want? There are many parents don't let their kids eat ANY junk food because its unhealthy. Is that "body policing" too?
my dear, your entire point is based on the absolute MYTH that health is even a thing! who’s to say a large coke is less healthy than water?
after all, the term “health” is so vague and everyone has a different definition, maybe that 7 year old’s definition of health was another donut. if she feels better eating junk, she should be allowed!
trying to teach children how to properly care for their bodies and intervening when they don’t is absolutely body policing. especially in children, not letting them eat whatever they want steals their childhood and fucks them up for life. children need to learn “intuitive eating,” or eating what they want, when they want it, however much they want. Linda Bacon says this (even though she really doesn’t) in her work on HAES. pls educate yourself, bigot.
note the heavy amounts of sarcasm
It really pisses me off when I go shopping at Goodwill and I have to dig through huge, elephant, and whale sizes to maybe POSSIBLY find something that fits.
Oh, you didn’t like those words? I just did what you did, replaced words with horribly rude sounding body shaming bullshit.
Don’t be such a bitch.
Also eating disorders are not sizes, and referring to them as such doesn’t do any good for people dealing with them - fat or thin.
Good job contributing to the misconceptions and stigma around them though :)
