Hi, I'm Stark! I'm a genderqueer unicorn otherkin with aspergers. I am an abuse survivor. I love animals. I am interested in social justice, voluntering with animals and writing.
Ask me anything
I like with my mother and older brother and I have a cat called Amos. My mother has two dogs called Truffle (yorkshire terrier) and Tiger (short for Tiger Lily) a maltese cross we think poodle. they're cute but not like real dogs.
If you want to know anything else let me know. I'm happy to share!
dasananda said: I don't want to seem like a jerk, so I hope I don't unintentionally say anything triggering or callous when I express confusion over the notion of thin privilege. fatphobia has never been directed towards me, but is thin privilege a problem to the extent that white privilege is? Like, to the extent of refusal of employment because of weight (when weight does not limit ability to do a job) or hate crime? Again not trying to be rude but I had never heard of thin privilege or fatphobia before now
Didja read the blog? Fat people are denied jobs are promotions, make less over their lifetimes, are denied vital services like medical care, are treated literally as a disease themselves, are harassed and assaulted, and indeed DIE of fatphobia.
As bad as racism? No, probably not, inasmuch as you can compare these things. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a real oppression and a real privilege.
You doubt it because you hadn’t heard of it before? Well, there are always things you haven’t heard of in the world, and they still exist. For everything that you hear of, there’s a first time to hear of it. That doesn’t mean those things don’t exist before you hear of them.
Yes, fatphobia is still a word that’s little known. The reason for that is that most people still think it’s perfectly normal and reasonable to discriminate against fat people. Once upon a time, people didn’t know the word racism, either, because oppressing black and brown people was normal and reasonable. This is how it works.
why the fuck don’t people just research stuff?

OH GOD, don’t bring up that dark time again.
"Disagreeing with me and/or calling me out? ARE YOU TRYING TO LITERALLY PSYCHOLOGICALLY TORTURE ME?"
What the fuck? gaslighting isn’t a joke.
I can’t believe I am the only person to notice this, but the meme “Doge” is deeply, deeply problematic. The dog is never particularly intelligent (not to mention not human, poking fun of otherkin) AND speaks in broken ESL Asian language, if not complete ebonics. I refuse to give this meme any more credit because it is just so deeply problematic.
THANK YOU! this has been upsetting me for a while nowl.
