Robot Hugs explains privilege (and what to do about it) in an easy-to-understand way.
I know, these privilege conversations can suck but we really need to have them. The idea is simple: there is an uneven power distribution that makes life easier for some of us (like me: a white cisgender-female), while making life more difficult for other people. People who may suffer from a disability, may identify as non-binary or transgender, or may belong to a different community of color–and that’s not an exhaustive list. Still as people who occupy privileged positions in society we forget that our experiences are considered “normal” and that they aren’t the only experiences people have.
What I really like about this infographic is that it goes beyond lecturing people about their privilege it offers examples of what you can do to subvert your privilege. Awesome.
