What I Learned From the Privilege Meme|
Something like this illuminates some differences.
*nods head enthusiastically*
I'm all for illumination. At this point in my life, I tend to think the most valuable a person can have is perspective. It can show you a more objective truth about where you are in life than all of the programmed doubts and misgivings and expectations we all carry in our heads. You learn what beliefs are good and healthy and what beliefs need to be kicked to the curb. You also learn to be more tolerant when you encounter beliefs that seem counter to everything you've ever been taught about life. So yeah, I appreciate illumination, even if you also discover what well and truly squicks you in the process.
"most valuable asset a person can have" is what it should read.
I hate when my fingers and my brain get out of sync. It happens all the dang time. ;)
