rzrwiresunrise: If their history and political science courses aren't already getting them to examine "components of race, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, ability, religion, international status, and power differentials", then WTF are they actually learning???This makes me glad to say I went to a state university.Power and privilege training. W. T. F.
Kumana Wanalaia: not_an_indigo: hasty ambush: I Checked My Privilege, And It's Doing Just FineThe proper response to the privilege gambit is laughter. The super-serious zealots of progressivism hate being laughed at, but there's really no other appropriate response outside of a stream of obscenities. The privilege game is designed to circumvent arguments based on reason and facts and evidence, so the way to win it is to defeat it on its own terms.Call: "Check your privilege!"Response: "What you call 'privilege' is just me being better than you."They won't like it. It will make them angry. Good. Because tactics like "Check your privilege" are designed to make us angry, to put us off-balance, to baffle us and suck us down into a rabbit hole of leftist jargon and progressive stupidity.Check my privilege? I just did, and it's doing great. If you want some privilege too, maybe you ought to get your sorry behind a job.You sound white.He's probably white, but he's definitely an asshole.
Fark like a Barsoomian: UrukHaiGuyz: Before you go on another creepily race-obsessed and irrelevant screedDo you know what thread you're in? Did you RTA?
Kumana Wanalaia: hasty ambush: Check my privilege? I just did, and it's doing great. If you want some privilege too, maybe you ought to get your sorry behind a job.Right. Because 5 years at a McJob will catapult you right to the top.
meyerkev: Yeah. Oh, and even funner/scarier is that Harvard grads run the country. So 30-40 years from now, the people who believe this crazy shiat will be in charge.
