#Privilege means you’re given unearned advantages based on a social norm or value. #Race, #gender, #class, #disability, & #sexuality are all major social systems which value certain bodies & behaviors over others.
Fatphobia & slim/size privilege are produced by systems of gender, race & class. How? By the production of beauty norms & medical standards of health which are based on middle class whiteness & directed mostly violently at women.
Thought big booties are recently valued (notably most when they are not on the bodies of black women, especially fat black women), the bodies historically most celebrate were/are thin white women. This is an ideal that harms all women & encourages us to all hate our bodies.

It’s best to start talking with #children about sexuality early. You may ask, “How early?” For young children, you can start by teaching them the names of their body parts or asking if they know why girls and boys look different #FPFriday
When we talk to children about sex, it’s important to keep our conversation age appropriate #FPFriday
