they aren’t equal though.
i never said thin shaming wasn’t terrible, but if you seriously try to pretend like it happens as often and as bad as fat shaming, you’re lying.
and as unfortunate as body shaming is, at the end of the day, your “too skinny” friend is closer to what is deemed acceptable by society than, say, a plus size girl. there isn’t an entire industry hellbent on eradicating your too skinny friends. your too skinny friends can walk into a store and fit into the clothes without having to worry about spending a fortune. your too skinny friends don’t have to listen to doctors drone on about how unrelated illnesses like a cold could be cured by weight loss.
i’m well aware that overweight people can have eating disorders, painfully so. binge eating disorder is how i gained all my weight in the first place. so uh, thanks for bringing that up but i got it already.
i’m bad at wording things sometimes, but here’s a good chunk of what i’m trying to say from a really good article ( x )
Fat people are consistently mocked on television and in movies. Magazines have whole issues devoted to “Worst Bathing Suit Bodies”. Fat people are told how they should (and shouldn’t) dress, how they should eat. They are judged much more critically, and much more frequently than non-fat people. They are targets, because they are at the weaker end of the power dynamic. That is what makes “fat bitch” a different insult than “skinny bitch” and why fat shaming is different than thin shaming. Neither is positive, and neither should be acceptable. But thin shaming doesn’t excuse fat shaming.
also, as a bonus, please have (and actually read) my favorite article on thin shaming vs fat shaming. it’s written by a woman who is and always has been thinner.
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.
i seriously do encourage you to read those articles, they word very well what i cannot.
i’m not jealous, i do know what the fuck i’m talking about. basically, when people try to compare thin shaming to fat shaming, it’s kind of an attempt at being seen as a victim, or an underdog
and i’m sorry but as a thin person in a thin-obsessed world, you really are not an underdog.
So much truth. Body shaming in general is not acceptable in any form. However we cannot deny we live in a society where it is favored upon and desired to be thin, and frowned upon to be fat or bigger than “normal”.
But at the end of the day, what exactly is “normal”?
