How do you feel about fatphobia, thin privilege and how it may connect with an ED?
I wish that fatphobia weren’t a thing. I wish we could describe someone as fat without it carrying so many negative connotations. It should just be a word.
I’m not certain how directly ED sufferers would connect with thin privilege, because generally speaking ED sufferers do not perceive themselves as thin. They may still reap some of the benefits of being thin, but they don’t typically identify with it. It’s always unfair that people are treated differently based on their weight, but I don’t think we can necessarily blame people for that.
I think everyone fears different things, but for me personally, I fear(ed) gaining weight especially. I was terrified that any changes I made to my routine would result in huge weight gain and that I would become overweight or obese. These fears are often grossly exaggerated and unrealistic.
