Is it “thin privilege” if you earned it?

Hi friends!!

First of all, thank you so much for your feedback and support about the changes I’m making to these Tuesday emails!

The response to Stefanie’s guest post two weeks ago was phenomenal (!!) so I’ve decided to hire her to write the first Tuesday email of each month.

Which brings me to the newest update: video content!

On the third Tuesday of every month I’ll be exploring a topic in-depth #TransparentTuesday style, just in a video instead of in writing.

Today’s topic is:

>>Do you still have “thin privilege” if you worked your ass off for that body?<<

 

People often express confusion about the term “thin privilege” because they understand that privilege is supposed to be about advantages you didn’t do anything to earn, like being born white, or a man— and the perception is that a thin/fit/lean body is *earned* through hard work.

Check out today’s first ever #TransparentTuesday video to see me unpack why I still consider it privilege, and how we can all better approach and understand the whole concept of privilege in the first place!

I hope you enjoy the video! Please feel free to hit subscribe, like, or leave me a comment over there, or to come on back here and let me know what you thought. 🙂

Talk soon!
