How exactly is being thin a privilege? Of course some people may be born with a bit of baby fat they might have to lose, but weight can change depending on what you do. For instance, if I started eating a lot of food, I would probably gain weight because of it and if I began exercising to lose weight, I would lose weight. There ARE people with problems losing weight but things like that are extremely uncommon. So if weight and size can change depending on your actions, how is it a privilege?
Being thin GRANTS YOU privilege. Have you never encountered the any phrase of “X privilege” before? This is what it ALWAYS means. People with privilege have systemic and structural advantages over people without it, which are granted to them based on whatever group they belong to that is specified in the fucking phrase. Being white is not a privilege, being white GRANTS YOU privilege. Being straight is not a privilege, being straight GRANTS YOU privilege. Work on your fucking reading comprehension.
Also, every single fucking study says that you are wrong, that very very few people can lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off long term. Do you fucking research before you make blind fucking assertions based on what “everyone knows”.
Not that it would matter if it COULD be easily changed, BECAUSE NO ONE DESERVES TO BE TREATED AS IF THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO DESERVE ALL THE RIGHTS AND ACCOMMODATIONS AND ACCESS THAT ALL HUMAN BEINGS SHOULD GET.
How the fuck hard is this to understand?
If you’d like a reason very few people can actually keep off weight consider this: there was a time when food was scarce. Unlike today, people couldn’t just walk down the road and get it from the store. People had to live off of what they could forge. So if you could genetically hold on to more weight you’d be more likely to survive. Only recently has being able to keep off weight something people want and that’s only because in places where it’s easy to obtain food this genetic trait most people have is unessasary and in some cases bad for their health.
You Have to Live To Have A Life
The important thing about life is that in order to get anywhere in it, you actually have to go somewhere. Too many times do we sit and act as though life is just going to happen to us. We sit in our rut and expect that the opportunity will just make itself. Sometimes it does, but a lot of the time you have to make an active role. You have to live.
You hate school but you like what you’re in school for
just push through it. You’ll regret not doing it if you really love it
You hate school and you don’t have a personal felt reason to be there
Then leave because you’re wasting your time
You want to make friends
Try sitting where people are and examine people to see who you might get along with, then introduce yourself; join a club
If you want to get fit, go to the gym or finding an active activity you enjoy
like sports, dancing, martial arts, ect
if you want to stop feeling depressedmaybe find people who feel the way you do, write about it here on tumblr, if you must talk to your school counselor or someone else qualified. You may not get better quickly but at least you’ll have people to talk to and support you (Talk to me, I’d love to chat)
If you want to see the worldfind a job, save some money, you’ll see it one day
I’m saying these things because I’ve been there. Complacency breads complacency, laziness breads laziness, happiness breads happiness, activeness breads activity, living breads life. You have to live life if you’re going to have life. It’s not easy, but it’s possible….
