That video from Laci Green about fat shaming and stuff is really cool and all.
But I’m pissed off because those are things that fat people have been saying forever, but when a thin-bodied person says them, they are praised for it. And all of a sudden, other thin folks are like OMG SHE’S SO RIGHT~
Agree 100%. Laci Green is fantastic and her videos are fantastic and I am so incredibly glad that she posted this video. I don’t want anyone to misconstrue that I think otherwise, but yes, isn’t it silly that the world will listen to a thin person telling them to stop fat shaming, but when all the fatties tell them to knock it off, we’re just, I don’t know, making excuses for our lazy jiggly asses and deserve to have those jiggly asses shamed off.
Before I had even seen this video, I actually found myself thinking today, “If I were just a little bit smaller, people would take me seriously as a fat advocate.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the state of our society.
Reblogging for agreement. It happens with all oppressions - oppressors will listen to one of them before deigning to bend an ear towards those who are actually being oppressed. And it sucks.
