Privilege

I think people have issues with privilege-talk because it’s not comprehensive enough. If we had a total and complete account of the struggles people faced, I think people would be much more on board. But we would have to talk about:

– High baseline happiness privilege
– Attractiveness privilege
– Charisma privilege
– Intelligence privilege
– Loving parents privilege
– Alive parents privilege
– Health privilege
– Mental health privilege
– Height privilege
– Not routinely beaten up mercilessly as a child privilege
– Easy time focusing privilege

(This list is not meant to be exhaustive.)

And because these aren’t talked about, people feel their struggles and suffering are being ignored which unsurprisingly leads to them being upset.
