I believe the word privilege is also used to be dismissive of peoples struggles. Like just because you are able bodied, white, cis, male, straight, you better check your privilege because someone out there has it worse.

So I make fun of the word too and it's hilarious when some people get upset when I tell them they are privileged like they have fat privilege because at least it won't hurt when they lay on their backs and they won't need to dress in as many layers in the winter. The irony of it is they don't see their own hypocrisy when they go on about thin privilege. But but but, having fat privilege does not mean you are struggling and not suffering, it just means you benefit from it. That is what they say about thin privilege, even if you are struggling with an eating disorder or have cancer so you can't eat so you are very skinny as a result.

Trueno -

"There's plenty more fish in the sea"

Landlubber's lack of privilege...

(both can be true at the same time)

Hey Fnord, here's a little exercise for you...try googling the the term "racial privilege" and see what it comes with?

I understand you are making up this concept to "fit in" to your world view...the fact is white privilege is "global" and trumps whether Tutsis were once upon a time kings or whether Han CHinese look down on Tibetans..or whether Burmese look down on Rohinga,...all the latter are examples of discrimination not privilege

Can't get less right wing than me and I think the notion of global white privilege is bs.

Global oppression of people with dark skin is true. In Africa, this looks like the (severe) after effects of colonialism. Also it looks like colourism.

It was better in the 60s and 70s when oppressed groups worked together globally for tangible goals.

'White privilege' when generalised that much really does sound like someone hates someone for having pale skin. We're not going to stop having pale skin. Work against the oppression of people with dark skin instead of working to scapegoat people with pale skin. Better yet, work against the oppression of minorities and occupied peoples regardless of their physical appearances.

KT and Cyberdad I have difficulty with any of these privilege categories being accurate.
I'll suggest another one for the list Fnord, though again it can't be universally applied.
Colonial privilege or what native Americans might call settler privilageRef, it allows for differences in the stereotyped ideas about race?

I "made up" these terms to cover every aspect of each specific category. For instance: "Racial Privilege" covers White Privilege, Black Privilege, Asian Privilege, First-Nations Privilege, et cetera, and at least one race enjoying benefits that at least one other race does not.

Your obsession with Tootsies is irrelevant to me.

Yes, the concept of an intrinsic privilege does seem to be a matter of hypocritically subjective perception -- who is more privileged than who else is dependent on the person pointing out another person's privileges while ignoring their own.

By illuminating the many different ways people enjoy the benefits of their particular 'privileged' status, maybe the rest of the world will finally see that the concept of intrinsic 'privilege' is exactly as you described.
