Because so many people will judge her and assume she has an eating disorder.
In reality, she consumes between 5,000 and 8,000 a day. She probably eats more than most “fat people” any of you will ever meet.
“I eat small portions of crisps, sweets, chocolate, pizza, chicken, cake, doughnuts, ice cream, noodles and pop tarts all day long, so I get pretty upset when people accuse me of being anorexic,”
She’s obviously one of the most “privileged” people in the Western civilization, right?
Thin-privilege does not apply to emaciated bodies that experience some sort of disability or eating disorder that severely impacts their ability to gain weight.
These bodies are not the accepted “norm”, just as fat bodies are not the accepted “norm”. They challenge society’s perceptions of health and do not fit into the accepted “ideal” and therefore face discrimination and oppression in their own way, separate from the way fat bodies are discriminated against.
