Is this thin privilege?

thisisthinprivilege:

thin privilege is having a two floor forever 21 and not having just one section in the corner that has stuff in your plus size. 

In a word, no. I don’t deny that thin privilege exists, but we also need to stop blaming EVERY SINGLE DAMN THING on it. It is not thin privilege to shop at store that sells cheap clothes, and is freaking designed for teeny-boppers—people who are not yet grown women, and usually have smaller bodies. (Not that everyone that shops at Forever 21 aren’t grown women. However, the store really does cater to the teenage population.)

This is why there are plus size stores. Go to a store that carries clothing that fit you, and don’t complain that some stores don’t cater to your every need. If I go to Baby Gap, it is pretty obvious I won’t find clothing that fits me, but I’m not going to make a scene about it. Also, coming from the other end, as someone who is 5’ 2” and under 100 lbs, I often have the opposite problem: that clothes are usually too big for me. I don’t go around telling people that this is TALL PRIVILEGE or FAT PRIVILEGE. I accept that not all clothing stores cater to me, and that is fine. I will go elsewhere to find clothes.

Hey guys,let’s undermine how incredibly hard  it is to get into med school, develop a thorough understanding of how the human body works and provide the confidence of care to many because we’re bitter and refuse to accept the fact that obesity causes health complications.
Shut up, ATL.

Med school is four years after undergrad.
Residency is 3 years after med school.
If you dare specialise, expect another 3-4 years after that.
We get 4 years of schooling which we pay out of our nose for and then on top of that around 6-7 years of being vastly underpaid interns where we rack up the ever hailed “10,000 hours of experience” (the experience that some old doc speculated would transform someone from just a know it all into a genuinely good doctor). 
Not to mention that we have this thing called Continuing Medical Education, which we have to rack up 45 credits for each year to keep up with current medicine, and have to take a relicensing exam every five years.
So we aren’t special, but most of us work pretty damn hard at our jobs.



YES EXACTLY. 

Also, sure, math is hard. After you come out of grad school, I will defer all of my hard math decisions to you. I will accept that you know a ton more about math than I do, and while I can still know a little about math, I will not undermine that you have gone to school for a hell of a long time to learn about it, and I have not. 

Is it really that hard to say the same about doctors? That they go to school  to learn specifically about the human body and what can go wrong? So maybe, just maybe, you should listen to them when they tell you their opinion.
