Thanks for the comic- it's a point that needed to be made. I'm trans, female and bisexual, and this kind of hate towards those trying to support us really disappoints me. Hate + hate = more hate. Break the cycle with simple love and acceptance of everyone. That's it. That's all that needs to be said. I will refuse any 'solution' to equality that includes hate, because it would make things worse. Simple as that.

THIS. While I admit that my orginal comic wasn’t exactly love and rainbows, generally all I want is peace and acceptance. You’re completely right. This is the message that needs to be conveyed. What’s the point of discriminating in movements that supposedly preach equality? I don’t get it.
Thanks for the kind words, friend.

i hope you don't find this rude but pointing out privilege is not a personal attack. acknowledging inequality is vital in a movement. if you are a privileged person than it is perfectly fine for you to support a cause. it is just not okay for you to speak over the marginalized who have the actual experiences with the struggles of oppression. no one is saying 'you are straight so don't support gays' they are saying you need to take a back seat in the movement bc you don't have the experiences

1. I am aware, but it’s exhausting to constantly hear it.
2. What I don’t understand is so many people claim that privileged peoples speak over the under privileged one. I’m not even sure what merits “speaking over.” Honestly it seems like even if someone says “Hey gays should get married” it’s considered “speaking over”
3. It’d be nice if we could just not discriminate over who has had experiences and who hasn’t and just work together. Goddamn.
I mean I do agree with what you’re saying but at the same time I can’t help but shake these observations.

So what happens when those who dont know what its like stops supporting those who do? We cant discriminate others like that. it defeats the purpose behind it all

Thank you thank you. And I wish more people would realize that.

I know it doesn't mean much from a stranger on the internet but I really respect what you did knowing the back lash you'd get. *brofist*

Psh you kidding? It means the world to me. Thank you. I was at first scared of the backlash but then I realized the irony of it all and laughed it off. I’m sure soon enough everyone will find something else to get angry at.

Okay, but the problem with a skinny woman holding a sign that says "All Bodies are Beautiful" would be that---although all bodies ARE beautiful-- thin women often derail conversations about fatphobia by suggesting that people are prejudiced against their thin bodies to the same degree that people are prejudiced against fat ones. While thin people might be teased or have health issues related to their weight, this is not the equivalent of the oppression that fat women (and men) face. (cont..)

I do appreciate your input, though.

(pt. 2) I would encourage you to check out the site "this is thin privilege" in order to help you fully understand the way in which fat people are harassed, degraded, and denied adequate healthcare because of their body size. As a thin woman (who has suffered from an ED) reading that site made me realize that although I have many problems related to my body, I am not systematically oppressed the way that fat people are.

Yes, I’ve checked that out before. As an overweight person, I am aware of the struggles fat people have to go through. And I’m also aware thin people are the dreaded p-word. I mostly added the thin girl to show another opposite to a commonly oppressed group. Honestly, I wish we could all just throw these labels out the window and accept everyone but, as aforementioned, asking for that on this website is a bit much.

My biggest concern here is the whole emphasis on “recognition”. People claim that the privileged do it for recognition whereas the non-privileged get none. I find this very hypocritical. Recognition shouldn’t be important at all. The world shouldn’t revolve around anyone; gay, straight, bi, cis, trans, black, white or otherwise. I thought the point here was to support a cause and let it be known to the world, try to bring about change, and be at peace with one another or even, y’know, get along since they all support the same thing? It’s super simple stuff, really.

i have no idea why you'd do what you did, but you have an opinion, and regardless of whether it's crude or whatever, people should still respect it.

I did what I did because I find it ridiculous that oppressed people get upset that “more privileged” people support them and then bitch about it. Maybe I’m bitching too though. But the responses to my comic are just appalling, and are basically proving my point. I know it’s crudely drawn too but that’s just my style.

And thank you for being civil about this. But sadly tumblr is a bad place for respecting others’ opinions. It’s practically world war III here.
