“Fat Activist” Claims That Thin People Are “Privileged”

It’s no secret that people who are thin and attractive have certain social and physical advantages over the obese in our society. It’s also widely known that some people, usually due to genetics, have a harder time losing weight than the rest of us. As the old billiards saying goes, “them’s the breaks.” However, some people who are overweight not only find society’s standards unfair, they view them as oppression.
