astro-zombabe: How can you say that "skinny shaming" doesn't exist when there's plenty of girls out there that get mistaken for having eating disorders all the time? Getting told to eat a cheese burger, or asked if I'm going to throw that up later isn't an attack to you?

Okay please don’t get me wrong, I understand that the occasional negative comment on your weight is personally hurtful to you. I am in no way saying that you are not allowed to feel hurt or victimised by people who choose to be nasty about your weight/size, because you totally are.

You surely understand, however, that no matter how many times you are told to “eat a cheeseburger”, you can turn on any television channel, open any magazine, refresh any social media page, and see your body type upheld as ‘perfect’, ‘the picture of health’, ‘more attractive’ etc, whereas larger women often have to go out of their way to see their bodies portrayed in a positive light, rather than displayed as a ‘Before’ image in a weight loss ad, right?

Once again, I acknowledge my own thin privilege too, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna get mad when Nicki Minaj writes a song for fat girls instead of for me, for once in my life.

I’m going to the Gold Coast for a week for my baby sisters 18th. Any tumblr honeys that can recommend bars/restaurants/activities would have my eternal loveee
