I really fucked up with today. I just noped it right out of the park.
Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?
And does that suck?
But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.
And that’s not the same for fat folk.
When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.
And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.
That’s thin privilege.

When did I become that old cranky lady who can’t handle awards shows? I mean, this is the emmys for god sake, I am a Television Person. But idk, tonight I’m just not up for the manufactured spontaneity, and all the hate/commentary.
That being said, I couldn’t be more thrilled about Janney winning for Masters of Sex. If you’re not watching that show you are beyond silly. And AJ gives the most incredible, devastating performance I’ve ever seen. Seriously. She is beyond brilliant. And I’m so glad she is getting the recognition. Now I just want my girl Lizzy to win as well. She is a genius and deserves it.
Absolute favorite daycare pup, Nika. I just want to take her home with me….
Selfie because I’ve been up since 5am, haven’t showered in…a long time, and have a bruised nose because a MinPin leapt at my face.
I’m sorry but, I don’t think there is anything I care less about than the VMAs.
