Okay you guys, I just came up with the best analogy for privilege.
Have you ever had a bladder infection or UTI? (I guess this might work for kidney stones as well.) If you have, you’re currently cringing. If you have, you might sometimes feel grateful when you pee that it doesn’t burn like fuck, because you’ve dealt with that horrible shit before.
And privilege is never even thinking about what it feels like to pee because it’s always the same and has never been the worst thing about your day.
“I don’t even get how trans* people know they ‘feel’ like another gender. I don’t feel like a man, I just am one!”
“Merry Christmas! How could anyone be offended? IT’S THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.” (As if there are NO OTHER HOLIDAYS.)
