You ain’t got people legitimately denying you job and educational opportunities because of the fact that you are thin.
You will not have people taking your picture in disgust and have them use it as ‘motivation’ to not be like you.
You are represented in all forms of media in an overwhelmingly POSITIVE light.
Plain and simple. There is no place in this world where thin people are not put up as the ideal.
So can we stop acting as if someone being individually teased for being skinny is the same as the systematic way that fat people are told their bodies are always wrong because morality?
"I’ve sold fish in the market for the last thirty years, because I never had the chance to go to university. Recently my daughter graduated from Makerere, which is one of the best schools in the country. When I walked through the gates to attend her graduation, I felt so happy, because I never thought I’d see the inside of a university."
Nothing wrong with wanting a temporary break from your everyday. Even living your passion can be exhausting and a respite or change in pace can help clear your head.
