I was thinking about the social privileges certain people enjoy and how they don’t think i’m affected by not enjoying their privileges. I didn’t know how to explain it, and then I found this from sigmaoctans.
People of any race or gender who earn tons of money have class privilege (they benefit greatly from what their money can buy them, even if they still might face racist, homophobic, or mysogynist reactions from the public). You can be privileged in one area of your life while being a minority in another. Its not anyone’s fault that they have a certain privilege, but its their responsibility to recognize what that privilege is getting you (which is, by definition, difficult to do with privilege) , and work to make sure those benefits are afforded to those outside your privilege group too.
I feel like my whole life is a constant competition of “no, I have it worse than you” and instead of having to beg people to see what I go through, I just want to see if there is someone aware and responsible of their privileges in this world.
