She's right though. Shy nerdy boys tend to think that because they aren't receiving the female attention that other guys do, that must mean they don't have privilege. It's about a lot more than just dating.
Man I just don't even give a shit anymore. They're right, I'm a horrible awful depressed anxious and neurotic monster. My whiteness, heterosexuality and maleness entitle me to not only the easy ticket in life but the title of true monster and oppressor.
I really truly do not care. They're right, I'm a bad person, fuck me.
>>26073793 The greentext in that pic is a product of the patriarchy. If society didn't put so much pressure on men to be masculine and macho (the same way women are expected to be feminine and dainty) there wouldn't be stories like that. Masculinity is toxic.
>>26074587 That makes zero sense. Being obsessed with sex is unhealthy. The only reason it's so important to you is because you view it as a status symbol. The sooner you let go of that, the better off you'll be. Plus desperation typically isn't attractive to anyone.
>>26074740 Having privelage does not make you a bad person. What's problematic is refusing to recognize your own privelage. Privelage can be used in a positive way to break down the institutions that uphold and dictate privelage in the first place.
>>26074938 Privilege itself is not bad either and the kind of ambiguous privilege SJWs harp at is not some zero sum game. One person's privilege does not contribute to someone else's oppression or lack of privilege.
>>26074941 You aren't understanding what privelage is. Having privelage doesn't mean you live a life free from any obstacles or hardship. Privelage means that people look at you as an equal in situations where others would be seen as lesser. Also privelage had many different flavors, it isn't universal. White privelage, male privelage, regional privelage, etc. Privelage doesn't dictate how good your life is, it's about access and the resources available to you.
>>26075277 Because any privelage that those boys in the story had that the writer didn't was rooted in adhering to the heteronormative status quo. He was bullied for not being masculine enough, because he didn't conform to the gender standards put on boys by the patriarchy. It didn't have anything to do with race or social class. That's what I mean about privelage not being universal. White males aren't the only people with privelage, just like POC and queer folks aren't the only people who are oppressed.
I was a little kid when I got introduced to "oh you have so much privilege" and it's what started my suicidal thoughts It started with "why should I breath or have anything when those more deserving have nothing". I've spent the majority of my life with suicidal thoughts and a slew of mental issues but this is what started it all I fucking hate SJW'S, not because I'm racist or sexist like most of /r9k/, but because it always reminds me of this. It reminds me I should kill myself and in the same blow makes me feel invalidated in any suffering mental illness has put me through Fuck everything
>>26075515 Most people have some sort of privilege Your patriarchy bullshit isnt fooling anyone. Females get pampered and people will basically swarm to aid them, even if they arent the victim. Blacks get to pull the race card if anything happens to them, many minorities can. How is everything 'the patriarchies' fault when so many people get privileges?
>>26075515 "Privilege" is bullshit, and it is literally stereotyping. Just because you see someone is white and male you assume they had it easy. What is even more ironic is if someone stereotypes a black man he's a racist, but it's perfectly fine to stereotype a white man. These double standards man.
Usually the "privilege dialog" is harmful especially to depressed people. A fairly common (yet undiscussed) symptom/behavior of depressed individuals is to "feel bad about feeling bad". These people often think they have no right or reason to feel as terrible as they do, and the concept of them being inherently shielded/invulnerable to sadness by way of their birth characteristics is incredibly harmful to their depressive inner monolog.
From first hand experience, it's taken me a couple years of therapy and medication to overcome this, and I still battle with it. It's a war every single day. Right now I can't tackle the worlds problems because I think about walking into traffic or swinging from rafters. It's gotten a lot better, trust me, and I'd never act upon these urges, but still.
It was a triumph for me to give myself "permission to feel bad."
You realize this is mostly pop-psych pseudoscience that was cooked up over the past few decades so that the ruling class could pretend they weren't morally accountable for fucking over the rest of us, right? There's a pretty big, varied body of actual peer reviewed work about this stuff done by actual scientists (protip: economics is not science). This is a pretty good one to start with:
