This is Thin Privilege

Scroll to Info & Navigation

Me and my boyfriend make an odd pair. He is seven foot tall and plays for the college basketball team here. I am five foot 180 lbs. I’m a “smaller fat” but still fat non the less.

Most of the other men on the team have girlfriends as well and we all like to get together and go out to lunch or have a sleep over. We like to bond. But I am always the odd one out. All of these girl are tall and stick thin and what most would call “beautiful

My BF is going to be a senior and in MARCH is senior night when on the last home game of the year the players family and friends go out on the court after the game and honor them. They tell me  I should lose weight because I’ll be on camera and according to one “The camera adds on ten pounds and you don’t need anyone in the nation to think you’re fatter do you?” 

I can’t take it anymore. I’m afraid my bf is going to leave me for a women that looks like the rest  or I’m going to be made the joke of the nation because the hunky seven foot basketball player has a short fat girlfriend. Thin privilege is never having to worry about a whole nation of sports fans laughing at you.
