Thin privilege is thinking people control whether they fit into an plane seat, not the airline.
Thin privilege is getting upset with your seatmate when he/she can’t put down the armrest, not the airline for ignoring the needs of larger, taller, wider-hipped passengers.
Thin privilege is claiming plane tickets buy real estate, not a fare, even though that theory would require larger passengers to pay at least double what thinner passengers do even though they might not need double the real estate.
Thin privilege is, when being asked why you didn’t buy a first class ticket with more space if you didn’t want to be squeezed in next to another human, answering, “I can’t afford first class and shouldn’t have to buy a first class ticket,” while still expecting a fat person to pay double.
this… omg this. I have huge anxiety about getting on planes after my last trip.
