Not to mention how a thin/average weight individual can dine out and indulge on desserts without hearing criticisms or being stared at like an overweight person may be.
You are young. Give it a few years. Genetics are huge, those of us that have to fight those genetics, it's a huge battle. I hope you can stay successful, or have great genes yourself.
@lavarule Of course genetics play into it. My genetics include a metabolism that has slowed down drastically, yet I've still managed to stay thin, as have the rest of my family. It might be harder for a certain group of people, but with self-control, it's still very possible and nowhere near a privilege.
Many things are possible with enough self-control and effort. It would be safe to say that those that are naturally thin, beautiful or athletically gifted are privileged, or at the very least have an advantage over other people. That's not to advocate that we make any big deal over it. Yes, these people may have hit the genetic lottery when it comes to their body, but we all need to play the hand we are dealt the best we can and not agonize over what others have.
@lavaruleYou can control you weight even with genetics facing against you dumbass. My best friend struggles with a family line of diabetes and his father is borderline obese. He's got shitty metabolism and has a hard time losing weight that he packs on. Yet you look at this guy and aside from a small patch of flab on his gut his body is built like a brick house. Someone can prevent themselves from being fat and they can prevent themselves from being thin. It's your CHOICE, not your privilege.Also if someone can't achieve something because they haven't put the effort to achieve it. That's a fault of the said person, and shouldn't be sending the blame to the people who work hard to achieve their body related goals.
@ThatItalianBastard Absolutely. It can be done. Lots of things can be changed if you want to bad enough.

Some people become obese because of bad habits but you shouldn't forget some are because of illnesses and can't get a normal wheight
Sure there are medical conditions, but how should a stranger know you have it? So everyone has to assume its because of the chosen lifestyle.
what about you
What about me?
U look good
Preach. I love this answer
You are absolutely correct. I used to be overweight, and then one day I changed everything and haven't looked back. ✌
@fantasticass @ThatItalianBastard Thanks both of you. :)
Thin people doesn't really have any advantage on the dating side. they usually have problems finding someone real that likes them for who they are on the inside, also tends to have more mental shit going on on the female side.Get judged much faster to be fuckboy fuckgirl with no interest in serious relationship.Assumption they are already taken.You also have the to good to be true factor.Unattainable assumption effect that you aren't good enough for such a person.
But isn't beauty subjective? I get that there is a standard of beauty depending on where you live but don't people have a different preference on what they find beautiful?
Yes thats entirely true

I disagree. I find harder to pay for unhealthy food then too cook a meal of my own. My mother lived in poverty for about 6 years and she needed to penny pinch like hell, and in doing so she stuck to home cooking with essential ingredients to survive.
Well, then you couldn't possibly know, could you? Only someone who has experienced both firsthand would know if there's privileges of one over the other, right? Either that or some compilation of empirical data that strongly indicates privileges of being thin.
@Chaz269There are documented health risks for being to thin (Anorexia). And there are documented health risks for being to fat (Obesity linked ailments).There are advantages to both sides, and there are disadvantages to both sides. But claiming one more privileged then the other doesn't help anyone it just makes the other feel bad about existing when it reality both can coexist. As long as they are both HEALTHY.You shouldn't bash people for having a certain type of body. Whether thin of fat. But you should be fucking concerned if someone is too thin or if someone is too fat.
ThatItalianBastard. ... . you are absolutely correct, great answer. ✌
hey dont be a hater
Gotta love fat acceptance.
lmao raising something up dragging another done is just layme
I'm not hating, just saying my opinion, I don't like skinny, but what is important is to love yourself,
"lol ur shapeless and boring but rmr to love urself hunny <3"
You actually such a dumbass, how does this 17 year old have more sense than you? Looks someone need to go back to health class because someone obviously failed.
Stupid fucking phone. So many typos😱 but you get my point.
@The_FallenOne im 16 actually : p
How is that seen as privileged exactly? A curvy woman is gonna look just as well in that dress as the thin woman.Also even if the woman was even bigger (which is what I assume you ment by curvy.) It's a formal dress, if it is in her size she is gonna look good in it. Formal dresses are made for woman to look classy and no amount weight changes that, the only thing that changes in the dress size.
not that they dont look good, but they might be seen as flirty because they have bigger boobs or hips, more sexualized is what i mean.
