The image of the two women eating pizza and drinking coke made me think…
Thin privilege is any food you eat being acceptable in the eyes of others.
When thin people have pizza and soda, that food is totally fine and normal.
When fat people have pizza and soda, that food becomes “GARBAGE,”…

On a slight tangent, I get irritated by the number of fitblrs that post images of junk food like this, or crow about eating it. The underlying message seems to be that ‘junk’ food is fine, great, encouraged for them, but woe betide any fat person if they try to eat those foods openly.

(FTR I don’t think that’s the attitude of ALL fitness-related Tumblrs, but definitely a majority)

This is Thin Privilege: “how can you be that fat and still put shit like that in to your body”
