when I’m made to feel like a bad person just for following someone else’s blog (someone who i’ve never even met before), then there is something very real and wrong going on
“This is Clean Privilege” showcases examples of clean privilege in order to illustrate the systemic filthphobia and filth discrimination inherit in our society. Its purpose is to show that those who bathe and clean themselves are living life on ‘easy mode’ compared to those who do not. The nature of privilege is that it is invisible to those who have it - by listing examples on this blog, we hope to raise awareness of clean privilege to those who have it and change society for the better.
It aims to expose the culturally constructed definitions of beauty constructed by our culture, mainly the notion that clean = attractive and unclean = unattractive. These standards have no basis in biology and are the invention of the media and billion dollar hygiene corporations who profit from attacking the self-esteem of those unable to meet their impossible and ridiculous standards. Ever felt oppressed because you were mocked for skipping showering that week? Ever endured nasty and hurtful comments based on your body odor or the texture or appearance of your hair and skin? You don’t need to. The only thing you deserve is respect.
Angry? Feel cheated and lied to? You should. Join the fight.
This is clean privilege.
Did I ever mention this is my favorite blog btw
fun games I like to play in public to stop myself stessing out from anxiety: secretly assign fursonas to strangers around you
