Are you be benefitting from Thin Privilege?

Recommended Posts

Another thread crosser. I honestly couldn’t decide which of the obvious threads to stick it in - maybe people with more time on their hands can cross post? 

Anyway, if you care about your health and make sure you aren’t a bloated sack of lard you are apparently benefiting from thin privilege.

The self delusion levels here are enormous. Let’s flip it. So, do people going into most places to eat (where you are never really sure if you are getting healthy food even if it looks like it might be) benefitting from fat privilege? 

The gulf between reality and what these morons want to be reality is getting so great you’d need a vessel capable of faster than light travel to cross it.

A sign of a society so decadent that you can smell the rot.

Basically if you mainly eat food prepared by others all your life i.e. anything from Sandwiches through Ready Meals, Takeaways, Processed Food and Restaurants you will end up as a bloater.

The only way to avoid being fat is to know what goes into your food and you can only do that by not being a lazy fucker and feeding yourself.

This also stops you overeating as you have to put some time and effort in in the first place.

With your roadkdiet and sea swimming, I had you on as being thin as a lat. 

I don't know why I'm not thin but I never have been, I'm not fat, but in winter I'm on the upper side of the BMI zone for normal (so bordering on the fat zone). I always lose some weight in summer from walking, swimming, rowing and I move to the middle of normal. But being thin in winter takes work, although I can be easily thin if I do the 5+2 diet regime, so all I need is to lose about 3000 calories out of a week. But, it's too many crumbles and alcohol in winter and, in fact, alcohol all year, since if I drop those I end up at the middle of the BMI normal zone all year without much effort. The trouble is that too much of our food seems good with alcohol.

The only time I've really had no weight issues and could eat without consideration was when, for 6 years, I ran 3 miles every morning - but that buggered my right knee, well my right knee now overextends a bit giving hamstring tendonitis which ceases the ability to run at exactly the two mile distance.

Actually, I just think that I'm too short for my metabolism. If I was 1 inch taller and with the same metabolism, I'd never have any weight issues :ph34r:

I have had a thin priviledge day today helping a disabled overweight friend of my wifes move house. She had had a quote for 3k to move her stuff off the second floor of a grand Victorian villa she lets so I am helping her out taking the stuff to a barn for storage in the middle of a field ( that's another friend's barn). You see she is a hoarder, boxes up to the ceiling etc. Anyway while I was shifting all her stuff she's been confined to a chair all day resting her ulcers. 78 boxes have gone to the barn and some semblance of order in the flat for more boxes to go over the next few days. Landlady was having a shindig with other divorced women at the Villa, one of them even offered me hand. The farm was full of interesting people too, corn deliveries, joiners, dry stone wallers. Nice drive between the two properties across Lathkill Dale. All unpaid charity, but sooner than be confined to a chair all day. I should be priviledged for lugging  boxes in 30 degree heat all day unpaid, I think.:/

Well, I think I have one to beat them all xD

This evening the GF and I took  4 and 8 yr-old girls to our local quay on the estuary for a 'picnic' supper by the boats, the ducks and to do a bit of 'crabbing'. The point being 'fun' for the children. We were the only ones on the quay.

The public quay is in front of a pub and in prime 2nd home country where you won't find any young locals owning properties.

The pub has outside 'bistro dining' where pink shirts and beige chinos are in abundance

I usually look quite rough, tonight, a polo shirt where the collar is separating on one side, shorts that are blood and fish spattered, very old Tevas, short hair sticking up like a bog brush rigid with salt and blown by the wind - I could audition for Castaway. But I do spend a lot of time at sea. GF not a lot better, although she has had a wash in the last 3 weeks.

While sitting on the quay, I heard someone on the pub balcony say:

"That family must be poor people"

:wanker:

No matey, I'm fekking rich, richer than you.

BBC 3 really is a crock of shit isn't it. That article I linked to on the Deluded Old Scrapper thread with the serial dater was a BBC 3 article.

Don't you get the impression this is all just women talking utter shit to each other in the estrogenic echo chamber that is social media, and then other women 'journalists' giving it credence by writing about it on the state funded news channel. 

If I was to whinge un-ironically about the 'hair priveledge' of those who aren't going bald, I'd be told I was talking shit. And rightfully so.

By not telling them they're being ridiculous, by letting on that any idea is valid, you legitimize it and a load of fat people* will read it and take on that ridiculous mindset which will strengthen their resolve to dodge salad. After all it was on the So-Called BBC wasn't it.

And after that they'll read the article from the chubby serial dater and double down in their resolve not to settle.

Ya know if I didn't know better I'd guess the So-Called BBC was activity trying to make people into bigger arseholes than they are already.

(* I say fat people, we all know it's fat women here. No fat bloke has ever felt fat shamed, nor will you ever fool a thin bloke into being thin shamed.)

It's another one of those "turn one segment of society against another segment" all hidden behind the soft cuddly comfort blanket of making everyone "equal".

How much longer can the good people of the UK put up with this shit before they explode in an uncontrollable rage?

want that the reason BBC3 went online only? cos it was tripe in a can, and the viewing figures showed it?

I could be wrong, but popular successful things surely dont get hidden away.

The poisonous thing is that this tripe is often promoted to the front page of BBC news - a page that no doubt gets millions of views a day.

Start spreading shitty ideas at that scale for enough time and you can influence a country in a big way. A country that's fat enough already.

Privilege is the new discrimination.

Once the SJWs realised that nobody was being discriminated against any more they lost their purpose in life.

Then somebody invented privilege and you have a whole new set of targets to rally against and this time you get to discriminate against them!

 

White - privileged

Man - privileged

Thin - privileged

 

The whole ideology is as mad as a box of frogs and as Joe said it would be laughable were not the So-Called BBC splashing all of this across its front page as if it were a genuine issue rather than the utter utter bollocks which it is.

to me that says more about the So-Called BBC than it does about the crackpot screaming vaginas and man cucks.

I could do with some thin privilege on airline fares. If they charged by weight we could save a lot on travel costs.

You should visit Uzbekistan or Samoa; their airlines both charge by weight.

      I know that we have similar BBC threads but this looks like something new - a whole generation waking up to the way that means testing is impoverishing people who have worked and enriching those who haven't.
      The over 75s have a vast latent power in this country owing to their voting numbers and their very vulnerability giving them near-immunity from heavy hamded policing and custodial sentences.
      If there becomes real traction to this protest - a mass refusal to pay - then the So-Called BBC will have no choice but to back down.  They are not going to drag hundreds of thousands of over 75s through the courts because they will become genuinely hated by the population and the government will have little choice but to strip the So-Called BBC of its official status.

      There was an example on the radio yesterday, though I don't have a link, of NHS Cornwall now means-testing transport for elderly wheelchair users going to non-urgent medical appointments.
      The means-testing comprises whether you are on pension credit; if you aren't then you are paying for your transport and that means £160 a pop.
      If you have worked for 35 years so you have a full state pension - coincidentally £160 per week - even if you have no other income or savings then you are paying that £160 yourself.  So no food or heating that week.
      However if you have not worked or only worked a few years - freebies all round.
      For anybody who hasn't read about pension credit on other threads - it brings you up to the state pension level if you have no other income.  So they have as much coming in as anybody whose only penson is the state one.  And then get all the freebies on top so will be a lot better off.
      Why work?

      Anyone who watched Eggheads before 2016 will remember him.  I confess I could find him irritating but he brought something different to a programme that coudl be a bit staid.

       
      In 2016 he was accused of sexual assault, which the story records as being "false" rather than his merely being acquited.
      However on the basis of this false allegation he was sacked by the So-Called BBC from his main source and went bankrupt in 2018.
       
      He has AIDS for thirty years and now thinks that the stress of the legal cases, bankruptcy, and potnetially becoming homeless on top of the disease means he feels he hasn't long left.

      This is shocking treatment by your caring Auntie Beeb.  Potentially an employer would suspend you whilst the case was ongoing, for both their benefit and yours, but who fires you on the day you are exonerated? 
      They are an absolute shower of self-serving bastards so here is another reason to refuse to pay the licence fee.

      A good news story for a change.  Whilst of course cancelling doesn't necessarily equate to a permanent opt out, as is the case for the moe discerning DOSBODders like @JoeDavola, @Harley and, well modesty prevents, some of these will be that and that looks like the obvious reason for the upward trend - in a world of on-demand streaming who needs a licence?
      So how many don't pay the television tax?
      Well the figure quoted below is 25.8m licences.
      Per the ONS there were 27.2m housholds in the UK in 2017 https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/families/bulletins/familiesandhouseholds/2017
      The best estimate I can find for over 75 licence housholds, so currently free, is a fifth of licences.  But I'm not linking to it as it was in the guardian. Say 5.2m.
      So that adds up to:
      27.2m households 1.4m without a licence - 5% 5.2m with a free licence - 19% 20.6m with a paid for licence - 76% And they're losing them from that 76%; nobody with a free licence is likely to just give it up.
      It used to be that the ONS didn't even collect data on TV licence holding as so few didn't have them.
      The charming threatening letters I get from the TV licensing people used to quote the number of households with licences but have ceased to do that as the number is falling.
      5% withouta licence is significant and that figure is only going to go one way as the current crop of schoolkids rarerly watch TV.
      Hurrah!
