As you can see in this picture, the difference between an “acceptable” large for men is vastly different than an acceptable “large” for women (read: large women aren’t acceptable at all) in video games. The narrator of this video goes on an on about giving players the chance to play with features to a great extent, but I see just more of the same.
Thin privilege is being able to create a version of yourself in the character creation portion of a video game.

dasananda asked: 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

thisisthinprivilege:

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?

Anonymous asked: My favourite SJW fad was "gaslighting".

demisnowflake:

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.

Doge is Racist

erasingprivilege:

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.

Wasabi Candy Canes - You know they’re Wasabi Candy Canes, but to everyone else they look like normal mint-flavored green-striped candy canes. Of course, when they grab one, instead of the minty goodness they’ll be expecting, they get a mouthful of horseradishy heat!
Buy them here

oh that is positively evil

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THESE THINGS. My mom literally brought these home today and didn’t tell me. sO I JUST WALKED UP AND SAW THESE CANDY CANES ON THE MOTHER FUCKING TREE AND THOUGHT THEY WERE SOME SORT OF WATERMELON OR GREEN APPLE AND I GOT WASABI. MY MOM WAS LAUGHING AT ME. ALL I COULD TASTE WAS COLD HARD BETRAYAL

I WANT
