This is Thin Privilege (by diana1nicole)
The video is a must-watch! I love how down-to-earth diana1nicole is, talking about how marginalization (and the intersection of marginalized states) affects her life negatively. I just want to say to her in response to this:
I get bashed, and people think that’s okay, and people think that’s okay but it’s not. I get bashed just walking out the door, but it’s okay — it’s NOT okay — but it HAS to be okay because I have to ignore it…
—that we hope very much at TITP to help transform the haters and trolls that shame people like us just trying to go about our business into the people who are shamed or considered shameful. Because that’s the truth, isn’t it, that the good people don’t deserve to get shamed and the haters are the ones who should be taking the societal heat we get every fucking day (and in the case of folks who deal with the intersection of more than one marginalized state, more and hotter than that).
I also love this line so much:
How could you even trust the opinion of someone who watches TV…they don’t know what they like. …every ad out there is lying to you. They tell you you have to have this type of hair, this type of skin, but you don’t…
Love this video. It’s beautiful.
