Well, I’ve been going to different places in the blogshpere and getting in a few arguments here and there. On thing that keeps coming up, people will say, “Oh, your so privileged, go educate yourself.” Then they will tell me “privilege” is something I just have and that I am blind to my own “privilege.”
Being a little confused, I went to an online dictionary and here’s what it read: a right or immunity granted as a peculiar benefit, advantage, or favor : prerogative; especially : such a right or immunity attached specifically to a position or an office
Strange, so someone tells me I have privilege, but I am blind to it. They get mad if I suggest they have privilege. Isn’t it, however, equally possible because according to their rules, they would be blind to it. I don’t know, it just seems like another cheap tactic to shut down a legitimate point of view…..
