"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?
-Let’s Talk About Thin Privilege — Everyday Feminism (via samanticshift)
And does that suck?
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."
I am obviously white and I can say that I never really got the “need for representation” before. I used to think that it wasn’t a big deal because there are some types of representation out there, but I was ignorant to it as a whole.
I was bothered by the fact that I didn’t get it though. I also tried to think of media/tv/movies etc. that I watch that have more than just white people—and the list was pretty small.
I thought, “Oh shit, am I being subconsciously racist?!” And then I started to think of WHY I didn’t watch shows that had more of a diverse (or non-white) cast and I really didn’t have an answer other than “I can’t always relate to these people and their issues” and DING DING DING.
I finally got it. I FINALLY GOT IT.
White people don’t get it and I’m not even trying to make an excuse for us because we have no excuse. But I do get it now. We need representation in the media because not everyone is going to relate to “white peoples problems”. Hell some white people don’t even relate to white peoples problems.
I love British TV because that’s where my family comes from and I feel a sense of connection to it. As bland of a culture it is, we will gravitate toward the things that remind us of home/family/etc.
I know this might see like “duh” to most people, but some of us are slow to catch on.
This whole Shane Dawson, Sam Pepper, Jenna Marbles foolishness wrapped up in 5 minutes. ( although the focus is on Shane the message applies to them all)
This vlog is EVERYTHING. Why doesn’t he have more subscribers?!
at this point the youtube community is a glorified bunch of teenage boys who are known homophobes, rapists, racists, and awful people using their Internet fame to hurt young girls. Putting these people up on their fucking pedestal does nothing but hurt victims who are constantly shamed for “lying” because people love these boys so much. It’s disgusting and it makes me all kinds of angry and mad.
