Cue the people whining about skinny shaming being the same thing
Skinny shaming is, in my opinion, not a big problem. I've seen hundreds of posts on social media: "Real men love curves, only dogs go for bones!", but they do not compare with "MAN THE HARPOONS, GUYS! WE'VE GOT A BIG ONE!", followed by a picture of a heavy woman. Here's some examples of thin privilege, http://everydayfeminism.com/2012/11/20-examples-of-thin-privilege/
If you're not convinced that thin people have a shtiload of privilege, think about this:
If I go to the store and fill my cart up with cookies, soda pop, ice cream, etc. I will get so many looks, "No wonder she's big!" If I go to the store and fill up my cart with celery, juice, and fruit, I will get so many looks, "Like that'll help."
However, a thin person who buys junk food, "Good for her! She can eat whatever she wants!" And a thin person buying health food: "Good for her! She's taking care of her body!"
I'm a bit overweight, and you know what? I used to hate my body, I avoided mirrors, and I wore clothes that hid me. But now, I don't really care anymore. Now, I know that it doesn't matter. Yes, my risk of certain diseases is increased; so what? It's not your place to tell anyone what they should do with/for their body.
I like my body shape, and if you don't, look the other way.
