privilege as a meme

feel like the concept privilege is getting a lot of burn recently, fundamentally its for sure important for understanding society and so on, but particularly itt im more interested in how something gets chewed up by the internet and people, its interesting how the blog/social network era has popularized academic gender/queer/etc thinking which is for sure the pipeline that brought us privilege, as ideas spread they naturally become broader and i think at some point start to lose their power and degrade, you can see the seeds of this in totemic manner many regard privileges illuminating and deconstructive powers as well as its cut and paste employment as a societal master key

anyway what do you think

Mordy, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 19:48 (eleven years ago) link

I have seen it a lot in blog-comment clusterfucks as a kind of conversation ender/nuclear option. Recently saw it used this way against a dad blogger who was basically saying "I work very long hours and spend the rest of my time on childcare and house tasks. Why am I not referred to as a 'working dad'." And it was a pretty lighthearted, non grudgy column in tone. Somehow his "privilege" made this point invalid because working moms have it worse. Maybe it struck too close to home but I was bothered by this.

Not generally against the idea of privilege or discussing/checking privilege, just don't like it as a neutralizer.

obv there are positions of privilege based on sexuality, gender, race, social class, and beyond, but it then seems hard to accept that the word is used sort of on a sliding scale by someone who faces oppression due to one of those statuses, or two of them, or whatever. i mean, when does one person safely know that they are speaking from a position of complete lack of privilege? even among the same race or sexuality somebody would probably say "well wtf would you know", wouldn't they? it seems like a quest for authenticity of oppression, not sure where that line of thinking ends.

i feel like people should be challenged to check the validity and fairness and logic of what they're arguing or what they believe, not their right to say anything at all given their background. i mean surely if someone is speaking in a way that's blinded by privilege then their views can be taken to task?

Tioc Norris (LocalGarda), Tuesday, 9 April 2013 20:00 (eleven years ago) link

like this column i think is pretty emblematic of popular privilege discourse 2013 http://jezebel.com/5992479/if-i-admit-that-hating-men-is-a-thing-will-you-stop-turning-it-into-a-self+fulfilling-prophecy

its quite good at what it does imho and could be useful if it reached the right eyeballs in helping people understand where feminism is coming from, but on the other hand its pretty rote and doesnt particularly radiate passion for the subject matter, and this sort of thing just always rings a little hollow:

It's not easy to swallow your own privilege—to admit that you're a Fleetch—but once you do, it's addictive. It feels good to open up to perspectives that are foreign to you, accept your complicity in this shitty system, and work on making the world better for everyone instead of just defending your territory. It's something I had to do as a privileged white woman, and something I still have to work on every day, because it's right.

like every day you work on it really like a half an hour before you blog or what, theres a sense that having discovered this magic key to understanding everything you better genuflect in its presence holding your vile animal impulses deep within

lag∞n, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 20:00 (eleven years ago) link

I mean tbf, people do the same thing to working moms who blog about trying to balance career and parenting -- inevitably someone drops "first world problems" shtick which is the same thing.

reminds me of a recent letter to dan savage scolding him for saying that being polyamorous was not a "sexuality" on par with being gay. it was an... arrangement. or a hobby. or a kink. or a need. or some other thing, he said (i forget). hoo boy were people pissed! mr "monogamy is a myth" himself! everything has to be at the level of fundaments of identity. in this way i think this intersects with american language of the rights of the self in constitutional-legal term but i haven't thought that through yet really

goole, Tuesday, 9 April 2013 20:06 (eleven years ago) link

There was a thing maybe posted in some ILX thread about the "privilege" enjoyed by primary vs. non-primary partners (sorry if this is the incorrect term) in various kinds of polyamorous relationships. I thought this was kind of a narcissistic usage -- being a "non-primary partner" is not a trait, it's just a status in a particular arrangement.

i like privilege as a concept insofar as it makes people self-reflect on their own circumstances, and if it makes people think more about the experiences of others, especially those of a different race/gender - i hope that ultimately it leads to empathy, which i think is what will save us all

generally i think anything that makes people self-reflect / become more self-aware is a good thing

I don't have a problem with delivery per se. I usually do pickup when ordering food because I have a car and it's often quicker, but different strokes. That said, if I needed to have food delivered, I'd rather just go through the restaurant directly than use an app like Doordash or Grubhub.

it's for food delivery, not merely groceries, and services like this were extremely important to my mother and I when she was home alone and couldn't leave dad in the house by himself, or when we were emotionally drained after a long day of caretaking and didn't have the energy to leave the house. I imagine there are plenty of others who use the service for similar reasons who also aren't rich.

This is all I could find. Not sure what the privilege angle is:

It’s a pretty wild clip, and when combined with Streuessnig’s glowing words it ignited a firestorm of discourse about whether or not the film, which stars Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx, was any good. Detractors said it was just another bro movie, dismissing it as fodder for straight men. Supporters, including our very own Carolyn Petit who has been singing Miami Vice’s praises for years, said otherwise. But I had never seen it, so I sat down this weekend to watch it. And guess what? Miami Vice rules.

brony james (k3vin k.), Tuesday, 9 July 2024 20:53 (one week ago) link

the thing about, like, message board/USEnet/chat room etc flame wars is they used to eventually burn themselves out because other people occupying the same space got tired of it impeding their ability to discuss things and eventually things just dissipated.

meanwhile Twitter is like this wide open sandbox that everybody has access to/shits in, so just when things die down, a bunch of bots/agitators show up and stoke the flames again, and those with Calum-esque impulse control can't ever free themselves from the temptation to respond to every tweet/quote tweet, and it begins an endless cycle.

so you can be some obscure dude with a Suzuki and a large collection of vintage Pogs and wind up in a USA Today article because you lost your mind after hundreds of people reacted critically to your insensitively timed dick joke.

the other thing is that like, this entire thing kind of illustrates how it's a breeding ground for learning how to DARVO the fuck out of people.

like after all of the well-intentioned people noped out, of course the people replying now are largely misogynists, racists, and people who should touch grass, because they pretty much turn up to all viral twitter threads to pick at the bones, but she's now retroactively using this to legitimize the bullshit, unhinged heteronormative toxic garbage she posted at the beginning. like you don't just get to broadly spray the area and hit innocent bystanders just because some awful people showed up, that was kind of the argument against the Covington Catholic School kids that invaded that Native American protest - the Black Israelites shouting homophobic shit didn't make it ok for them to invade the Native American presentation and act like smug, entitled white kids, cos they were two different things.

but then again, the people that are needling her now aren't doing so out of any good will for anybody and keeping themselves amused, so....fuck them too.
