Apparently now "equality" means "preferential treatment"
@fettman1138, that’s what I said about chivalry when I hear women asking for equal rights.
@fettman1138, you only see it as preferential treatment because you’re used to privilege
@griffinstorme, what privilege is that? I am a white Male between the ages of 20 and 55.
There are no special scholarships for me, no affirmative action, no race card to play, no sex card to play.
I put myself through college for two different degrees, worked in my field hard as fvck to become a manager.
No one has handed me a goddamn thing in my life.
Oh but, just cause others are a different race or sex they should be given advantages?
@fettman1138, you should read some literature on intersectionality. No doubt you’re well educated with two degrees, but this is definitely an area I think you could look into. I’d highly recommend “so you want to talk about race” by ijeoma oujo.
@fettman1138, but like u said you’re a white male as am I so we r both privileged... I just can’t wait for mine to finally kick in so I can start getting handed everything I want and life will be easy street forever
@sgc6610, Well when you get yours let me know so I can head on down to the privlage offices and apply.
@sgc6610, that’s not what privilege is. At this point you’re just being obtuse. If you want to remain ignorant, it’s your choice.
@griffinstorme, I’m not trying to be obtuse green mouse fava juice I’m trying to be acute but y don’t u explain what white privilege is so I can better understand it I’m sorry for being ignorant but it’s just hard to understand something that doesn’t exist
Also lmao everyone downvoting me for suggesting someone read a book.
@fettman1138, oh shït I didn’t know u had to apply for it maybe that’s y I haven’t gotten mine yet
@griffinstorme, I honestly wish there was a different word for what you’re describing. People take in the word “privilege” and act like if they didn’t get a golden spoon shoved in their mouth then they couldn’t possibly be “privileged.” I’m white, I’m male, and I’m straight, and I’m an engineer who worked my butt of to get where I am. I’ve had 17 bone surgeries due to a bone disease and I fully understand that I am still “privileged.” Personally, I think people disconnect when they can’t align the word “privilege” to their uniquely difficult life in a concrete, observable way. Thats just my opinion though.
@airguitarpro, I completely agree with you.
@sgc6610, it’s a very broad topic. That’s why I recommended you read a book about it instead of expecting me to explain it with a character limit.
Privilege doesn’t deny at all that you’ve worked hard and faced your own hardships. But as a white person, you’ll never have to experience racism in the forms of segregated schools, police brutality, and media representation. You’re more likely to get hired to a job and get housing or a loan than a person of colour. As a white child, you have vastly more examples of positive representation. And those are just scratching the surface.
@griffinstorme, me and my friends have been victims of police brutality b4 in my union they pretty much say they’re trying to hire blacks and not whites so during my apprenticeship so many ppl were surprised to see me and idk how many times I’ve heard “they’re still hiring white guys?” Also the first job I was on I was the only white guy and I was subjected to lots and lots of racial discrimination only difference is if I even suggested filing a complaint about it I’d get laughed at and like the guys at work said you’re white nobody’s gonna take u seriously so yea I love my privilege maybe instead of reading a book u should live life and learn about ppls experiences b4 u claim something stupid like white privileged
@sgc6610, oh no, someone was mean to you one time because you’re white 😢😢😢
@griffinstorme, yep I know right everyone think it’s don’t happen but the reason ppl don’t think it happens is because we don’t bitch about for the rest of our lives we just say yea sometimes life sucks now let’s move on
@griffinstorme, what happened did u realize that u proved my point that when bad things happen to white ppl everyone thinks it’s a joke but if it happens to a black person it’s the crime of the century
@sgc6610, again, if you could read a book, you’d understand the difference between someone being mean to you and institutional racism.
I’m so sick of dumb people who just talk without thinking
@celtics313131, you calling me out here or something? Because I'm feeling kind of attacked right now.
@mas2de, please don’t......*not sure who you are*.....
@celtics313131, this is Funny Pics. It don't matter who I'm is.
@mas2de, it matters to me
Because nothing says equality like getting paid more based solely on your sex
@Sexy Homunculus, you mean you can't fight sexism with sexism?
Don’t forget any pawn can become a queen.
I cracked up when I first heard about Ms Monopoly. It's like when they had the Nerf Rebelle line, like holy shjt guys, sexism is over because we sexualized our product the other way! It's not like we could easily just put girls in the marketing for our product that doesn't need to be gendered in the first place, and that girls engage with anyway cause they don't give a shjt. Except this is even funnier because the only aspect of OG Monopoly that's gendered is the Ace Ventura 2 cameo on the front of the box.
I refuse to discuss the politics of Ms. Monopoly. However I do want to say this analogy is poor at best. Sure the queen can move more, but if the queen falls you can continue. Heck you might get another by promoting a pawn. If the king goes you lose. Therefore the king is the most important piece.
Kinda always wondered why the king is such a useless piece I mean I wouldn’t use it to attack but maybe having the ability to move two spaces instead of one would help with retreats
@eleven, because the king shouldn't be attacking. Also because it makes it so much harder to get a checkmate if he can run two spaces
@18bluecat, I did say I wouldn’t use it to attack and isn’t avoiding checkmate kinda the point
@eleven, yes, but chess is a game of strategy. You have to strategize how to keep your second weakest piece alive while attempting to capture your opponent's. By giving it the power to move two spaces takes away a lot of the fun. Especially in the end game when the king is the only one alive and you can perpetually run away if the opponent has lost their queen
@18bluecat, I guess that’s a good point if the king could run two spaces at a time chances are without a really good trap the king could run indefinitely
In chess the Queen is the most powerful piece but feminists need something to complain about so they look at it as oh yea of course the king gets to sit back and relax and he needs to be protected while the queen is out there doing all the work
