thin people: no, thin people don’t have “every clothing option in the world”
thin people: *walks into mall where there might be one plus size…
If it falls off that’s not the same as being able to wear it. That’s not a privilege. A privilege is being able to eat enough food to be able to become obese. (excluding those that are disabled and can’t exercise.)
I’m not the one that’s whining, that’s you and the other fat activists. Don’t freaking tell me I have it easy. You have no idea. ^_^
If plus-sized stores made a ton of profit than you’d bet there would be a lot more. It’s not oppression or fat-shaming, it’s economics. As for like Abercrombie and Fitch, they sell smaller sizes to cater to middle school girls that shop there. Not for thin adults. If younger girls didn’t shop there, I’m pretty sure that they wouldn’t have small sizes.
If only there were actually XXS-sizes. Too bad XS is pretty much always the smallest. And even then, there’s only like…1 or 2 available in a style. A lot of other thin people have found that too. You know, we actually sympathize with you fat activists on the clothing thing a lot if you all would care to listen instead of always saying, “shut up, sit down, you’re privileged, at least you can wear it, who cares if it looks terrible or like you’re wearing a tent, so oppressed, blah blah blah.”
…..But the average woman is a size 14. So there is OBVIOUSLY a market for plus sized clothing. So I’m not sure how your “economics” shit really plays out.
Like again, there’s a major difference between clothes not fitting to your liking, and not being able to find any clothing that will even fit your body at all.
One of those problems is a bigger issue. I don’t care to listen to people who are trying to silence me.
"Who cares if it looks terrible…." because at least you have clothing that you can actually put on your body.
Obviously fat oppression is a joke to you, so let’s have a quick run down of some thin privilege/fat oppression that isn’t about clothing:
“Research documents that fatter people face discrimination in employment (including lower wages), barriers in education, biased attitudes and lower quality of care from health professionals, stereotypes in the media, stigma in interpersonal relationships, and, overall, are judged negatively and treated with less respect. “
"Examples include being denied a job promotion or fired from a job because of one’s weight; being denied certain medical procedures or provided inferior medical care because of one’s weight; or being denied a scholarship, a bank loan or prevented from renting or buying a home because of one’s weight.”
“Even physicians specializing in the treatment of obesity harbor significant weight biases, according to more recent studies. The problem has been well documented among other types of health professionals, nurses in particular. At least 11 studies focusing on nurses’ attitudes toward overweight and obese patients have been published. They consistently show that many nurses harbor negative biases toward these patients and, in some cases, would prefer not to care for them or even touch them.”
“Overweight individuals don’t just find themselves at a disadvantage when applying to grad school. Research has shown that people with high BMIs areless likely to get hired and more likely to have their potential for career success and leadership judged poorly.”
So yeah, I’m gonna keep talking about fat oppression, and I’m gonna keep telling you you’re privileged, and I’m gonna keep telling you to sit down.
Now sit down.
oh oh I got I idea! Why don’t you stop shoving food in your gaping maw for 5 minutes, and try to loose weight so you can fit into normal clothes. So you can do your job instead of living next to the vending machine. You are fucking lazy cunt! The world will not change for you, it will not be kind and that not because you are fat. Its because that is how the world is. Suck it up shut you mouth and do something with your life!
And shut the FUCK up about fat oppression! I don’t have big feet oppression because I have size 10 feet. (You know how hard finding cute shoes is?!)
