Thin Privilege

I’ve lost the link, but yesterday I saw an article about "Thin Privilege." That's like "White Privilege" but only for thin, white people. I'd say this to the author (female); wait a few years, honey, and you won't need to feel guilty about being thin and getting all those privileges. I know many women who were drop dead gorgeous and slender as teens and 20s, and by the time the 40th or 50th reunion rolls around, they were all comparing diets. What's next? "Nice skin privilege?" "Great teeth privilege?"

Two of THE skinniest girls I went to high school with are now both portly as I see in their Facebook photos. I was stunned to see this; I mean these two were anorexic looking way before anyone ever used that word.
