Activist warns against non-fat privilege

TURLOCK, Calif. — (TG) Even as many Americans struggle to come to grips with the responsibilities they bear for centuries of devastation wrought by white privilege, a new socioeconomic scourge has been identified – that of non-fat privilege. While neither as pervasive nor shameful as white privilege, non-fat privilege is still a dangerous threat to fairness in society, a new study warns.

Peggy “Pink Lady” Fuji, a fourth-year sophomore majoring in self-hatred at the University of Post-modern Affairs in Turlock, California, is pioneering research into the latest ignominy to disgrace Western Civilization; she outlines her sobering findings in a paper published this semester called “Non-fat privilege: the emperor forgot to unpack his invisible knapsack.”

In her pronunciamento, surprisingly terse and concise for academia, Fuji declares that any American who can answer yes to one or more of the following markers is benefiting from non-fat privilege:

I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper, see a food or restaurant ad, and not feel exploited.

Airlines don’t expect me to buy two seats for myself

If I wish, I can arrange to be in the company of people of my weight class most of the time

My food lifestyle is not being targeted by the First Lady

People don’t eye my suspiciously or otherwise profile me when I’m in line at a buffet

Waiters don’t assume I want a diet drink

A fourth- year sophomore? Majoring in Self- hatred? At the University of Post- modern Affairs? ?? In Turlock, CA?
This just must be a spoof. Any job interviewers are going to break out laughing (And then singing: Turkey’s from Turlock). Hey, maybe she can add a minor in “Community Organizing?! “. That will give her exactly what she needs for a nice , comfortable life on the dole in Transformed Amerika”. Yippee!

Some people are absolutely DESPERATE to find oppressed people. When their search goes frustrated they MAKE THEM UP.

Years ago the UN had some weird global feminist meeting that really showed the difference between the USA and the rest of the world:

Chinese woman: “I wanted to have another baby but the nasty policeman came and gave me an injection that KILLED it..!”

Muslim woman: “They won’t let me drive a car..!”

Indian woman: “See my burned face..! My dowry wasn’t big enough and THIS is what they did to me..!”

American woman: “They won’t build a special church for me and my fellow WITCHES at Westpoint..!

(room suddenly falls silent and everyone turns around to peer at last woman)

SEE HOW WEIRD IT HAS BECOME..?

“wait...what is a fourth-year sophomore?”

Someone who takes three years to complete freshman requirements.

I think it would be a good background for White House spokesmouth.
