What is something that every fat girl has, every fat girl loves and every fat girl hates? You guessed it, her skinny friends (insert Ty’s 400 pound laugh here!). You plus size beauties can lie all you want but the truth is, your skinny friends work your last nerves on occasion…MINE SURE DO!
Now before I go any further, please know that I am not trying to bash anyone, this is just the truth as I see it. You know, my fat girl perspective on skinny girl privilege and the shade that accompanies it.
Yeah, you read right; there is a skinny girl privilege, all the fat girls know it and all the skinny girls deny it but it is there. Many times skinny girl privilege effect our beloved homegirls thought process and it is up to us to snap them back to reality instead of snapping their little asses in half.
While there are thousands of examples of exactly what I mean, I will not take up that much of your time. However, I will share five things that can transform your homie from Slim Goodie to Slim Shady (and I am not talking about Eminem) in no time flat.
“You have a pretty face,” says Slim Shady. Like that is the most sideways comment I’ve ever heard. We are more than a pretty face, we love our curves and extra cushion. How would you like it if we said you had a nice body…ONLY?
Style has no size gurl!
“You dress nice for your size.” WTF? How about I dress nice, period! Like, what does that even mean? Do I only look good in the presence of other fat girls but look like a walking mess when a slim Jim walks in the room? How is this even consider a compliment to you skinny bishes?
Oh you ain’t know, thick thighs save lives!
“Oh, he approached you (in shock)?” Yes honey fat girls are winning, we are not lost in love. A real man isn’t checking a woman’s scale he wants a soul mate with morals and something to offer the world other than a nice body.
How do you think I stay this fat? And no fatter!
“Wow, I didn’t know you workout!” Why yes shady McGrady, I do! Not every plus size woman is sitting on her ass waiting to magically get in shape. Just like not every slim chick is healthy and going to the gym daily. I see you at Fat Burger too!
Quit body shaming me! I’ve got this handled.
“If you lose a few pounds you will have it going one.” Are you assuming I don’t have it going on now? What skinny girls need to know is that our fabulousness is not determined by our size.
