I'm swimming in it.
White male scum!
How the hell is $65k /yr considered affluent?
The average US income is 50k.
I wish I didn't even know this was a thing.
I spend too much time online.
I get it.
If you're female, you have the "privilege" of not being forced to sign up for the selective service, etc.
If you're male, you have the privilege of getting passed out drunk with very little fear of getting raped.
If you're black, you have the privilege of being able to join black only groups, display black pride, etc, without being labeled a racist.
If you're white, you have the privilege of seeing yourself represented across the majority of movies, TV, government, etc.
The thing is... all of these privileges are essentially canceled out by wealth. A wealthy, successful black doctor has much more privilege than a white trash methhead. Also, a lot of this "privilege" isn't based on bigotry, but actual behavior. White people have the privilege of people not being as afraid of them as black on the street, but that is more to do with crime statistics - and so on.
You put tall and 10/10 handsome, didn't you?
i put 7
Wow you really need to check your privilege
I put in I am retarded
its good to see youre being honest
Tall is a big one if you're male.
Women have this visceral hatred for short guys. Disgust really. Darwinism triggers something in their DNA "this manboy is weak, pathetic, unworthy of reproducing". Men sort of feel the same way about obese women, but they have the option of changing that.
I sort of feel sorry for these shorties but since I'm not one of them, it just means more for me so I'll take it.
It's not even a woman thing. I'm over six, and my whole life I'm not accustomed to anybody fucking with me. Little dudes have probably had a whole life of getting shoved up against walls and not picked for teams and shit. A big part of privilege is respect, so think of all the situations where some people won't get it compared to other people. Like if you're poor and your gear is bummy, or if you're a chick and you're getting 60% of what your male counterparts make.
