Honestly I think this applies to all kinds of things, but:
Some people are just so invested in the cultural narrative that thin is good and disciplined and beautiful and worthy and fat is what happens to bad ugly people who aren’t as good and pure and righteous and fit as they are.
Like, it’s this feel-good-about-yourself quick scheme, where you attribute all these good qualities to this one thing you were born with and then pat yourself on the back for being born with it. And then you’ve got bigger people going “Nah, man, I look great!!” or “I’m gonna go dancing!” or “I deserve the right to exist in a public space by virtue of being human” and those people just lose their shit because if there’s nothing wrong with being fat then being thin doesn’t make them better and special, it’s just a body type like any other body type, so they do everything they can to make you hate yourself for them. Fat hate is especially insidious because they can hide behind doctors, and BMI charts and shit published by the weight loss industry while completely ignoring the real studies coming out that have found that body shape is as inheritable as height and that fat people who are active are just as healthy as their thin counterparts, etc. A bunch of them have been amassed HERE
I don’t mean thin people in general. And while I don’t think ‘thin shaming’ can be equated to fatshaming in terms of its scope, those ‘eat a sandwich,’ ‘you look anorexic’ comments thin people get really piss me off because you can never justify derisive comments about a person’s appearance and they’re almost always misogynistic in nature.
I’m talking about those really really insecure people who insist that being thin doesn’t come with privilege but simultaneously insist that they deserve it. They’ve got such fragile egos. Two songs praise big butts this summer and they all lose their fucking minds.
I like shipping the cheerful one with the grumpy one
