Thin Privilege is Bullshit
I was talking about this in a forum earlier and I just wanted to share my point of view with tumblr.
I am a fat woman. I am actually over 100 pounds overweight so I think I know what I am talking about here. Thin privilege is bullshit. Let me tell you why (fellow fat people please pay attention). Fat people have never been oppressed for being fat. Yes, being fat is a hell of a lot harder than being thin, but thin people have several problems of their own that have nothing to do with being fat. I am not gonna sit here and preach that if you’re fat its all your fault blah blah blah. I’m not going to tell you what your situation is. But here is the thing: it doesn’t matter if you are fat because you choose to be, because of genes, because of addiction, whatever. Fat people have never had to fight for equal rights, fat people have never been enslaved for being fat, and if fat people have any other obstacles to overcome because of their weight they can lose weight. You are not born fat. I actually hate the whole “privilege” movement for the most part but if you can accuse anyone of being privileged, “thin privilege” is probably the least credible concept. Another thing to consider: thin people often get accused of having eating disorders and also have people talk shit about their bodies (i.e. “real women have curves” “nobody wants skin and bones” “skinny girls aren’t real women” all mean, hateful things said about thin people) ALSO, men get a lot of shit for being thin so consider that as well.
Redrew some old art because how could you get tired of one otp cosplaying another
TWO OTPS IN ONE I EXPLODED
But seriously this artist is a fantastic human being for this
No, you don’t understand.
This actually happens.
We got a 16 year old boy on our unit once, because Pediatrics was full, and it’s about 1 in the morning and all the nurses are at the nurses station having a break and we’re all talking and having a laugh and then all of a sudden this kids heart monitor just goes CRAZY.
So we call the code and I grab the crash cart and about 6 of us just take off running down the hall and we bust in the room and this kid is just sitting there with his hand around his junk looking MORTIFIED.
So we just sort of backed out of the room quietly, walked calmly to the stairwell, and had a total and complete hysterical breakdown.
It was the funniest shit ever.
Omigod so many nurses have told me stories like these.

Xander would probably masturbate in the hospital tho, even after losing his left eye.
