“Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege.” Let’s Talk About Thin Privilege — Everyday Feminism (via samanticshift)

Meanwhile in Florida, the alligators have developed sign making skills.

Clearly those gators made that sign themselves.

Does it bother anyone else that the only show where we can see a wide, diverse representation of women of color and queer women is when they’re all in prison?
