So, I’m an asshole on two counts. (I’m sure more, but these two I am well aware of.)
- I want to be able to caption my pictures “Fatter and cuter in person” but I’m actually smaller in person than I look in photos. People who use that caption have to deal with being called liars if they meet someone online and haven’t “warned” the person first that they’re fat. I don’t have that problem, yet here I am wishing I did because the phrase is so dang cute. I know this makes me an asshole because I’m… romanticizing what fatter people go through? I can’t wrap my head around it, but my gut tells me I’m being a dick.
- I want a shirt that says “That melanin though,” but I’m a light skinned biracial person, which means I have a butt load of privilege, both in and out of the black community. I feel like being openly proud of my melanin when in fact my lack of melanin is a societal advantage is a dick move.
Anyone able to help me out? Is there a word or expression to describe being an asshole in this sort of way?
