I wasn't sure where you was going initially but I really like Ragen's post on What's This Thin Privilege Thing. It takes a few paragraphs to get into but I recommend reading the whole thing and reading some of the interesting comments.

Most of the weight problems we see come from what we hear about weight in general. It starts at a very young age and it is always counterproductive. It seems it is a terrible sin to be overweight. We are all born different and we limit ourselves if we believe we are somehow less worthy. We all have the right to be who we are. I was always overweight, but I never let it limit me. I had a full social life, lots of friends of both sexes, held elected offices locally, provincially and nationally. I backpack hiked, cross-country skied, trekked, swam, gardened and did whatever I wanted. I knew I was overweight, but I looked at it as part of who I was, like tall, redhead and blue-eyed. That's all. And don'y diet. Most of my weight came from dieting. If the diets touted worked, you would only need one, not the thousands published every year. And remember, anyone who hurts you for your own good, is only building their own ego. Glory in who and what you are. Stand tall and face the skinny-sticks head held high.

gud article, there have been individuals suffering from obese. We should not forget every personal has it's own character. Though i am not very fat, but have got fat individuals in my kinfolks. Have also seen my one of my second cousin getting operated only for reducing weight. One question always drives my thoughts; Why do we actually create fun of obese, they should be given equivalent honors; insurance policies, marriage, outdoor games, jobs etc. We should never ever pity on obese. Anybody indulged in making fun of obese individuals should be snubbed completely. I have personally observed fat individuals being more amorous by heart, have also experienced this. Though am not against slim, just want everybody's privileges to be secured & well known. It's really sad today's age & generation also has these prejudice opinion. Have also seen people making fun, if not ahead, then behind the back, here in India the scenario is more intense, here if you are fat even your family will avoid support, the riksha & taxi drivers will avoid getting in obese. It becomes also very challenging to travel in trains. Hope this discrepancy will end one day. Will always support obesity.

You are so very on point in relation to how you feel about yourself and your body; people take note! Everywhere we go we experience a society that indicates how heavy or thin women need to be. It starts when we are children being measured on a chart that does nothing to individualize a person, moves forward onto school, and than adulthood. Heavier woman have been made to feel that it is a crime for putting a little meat on our bones. I do believe though that society is moving forward with these thoughts. As more and more woman of substance are standing up for who they are and telling the world, Hey, this is me, you can love it or leave it. As long as a woman is healthy, comfortable in her skin, than nothing anyone says or feels is important.

I agree that we face a lot of negativity toward bigger sizes in society in general, but I read an amazing post the other day about self acceptance that use the quote "The call is coming from inside the house" to remind us that often we are our own worst enemy. I know this is true for me. No one has fat-shamed me to my face since I was a teenager, but I still do it to myself, all the time, and in brutal ways. I know that part of why other people do not see me as sexy or pretty is that I do not see myself that way.
