  • ***Pointing out privilege is not oppressive*** Posted @withrepost • @drawingsofdogs When a POC points out white people's propensity for racism, they are not being racist.

When a woman points out men's propensity for misogyny, they are not being sexist.

Pointing out privilege is not oppressive.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If someone points out that the game was rigged in your favour, you should use that as an opportunity to learn and grow. Avoid the tendency that privileged people have, to perceive that privilege being pointed out, as an attack.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just so it's clear, I'm a white, cis, middle-class, able-bodied, ostensibly straight, white guy (check out all my privilege). I, like every other highly privileged person, have a lot of learning and growing to do. This particular form of defensiveness is something I've been guilty of in the past, and is something I see everywhere right now. Also, don't get me wrong, I don't think that accusations of reverse racism are ever really sincere and in good-faith. They're just a way to shut down an uncomfortable conversation.

The monopoly dog says, "This game was heavily rigged in your favour from the start!" The monopoly car replies, "By pointing out that the game was rigged in my favour, you are oppressing me."]
