This is an important message on how privilege really works.
a very good post.
privilege is not a sin or moral failing that you have to correct, nor does it mean you have nothing relevant to say; tumblr uses the concept completely wrong most of the time.
the actual sense of the term is more like ‘defaultness’ — being the baseline in society’s eyes, not standing out, not being the sticking-up nail or the squeaky wheel. and the reasonable response to realizing this is not to apologize and feel bad — and it’s certainly not to try to be less default, that goes to really weird places — but to consider your new level of awareness and apply it to the society around you. it’s a useful tool. it’s like a UV camera that shows up fingerprints and bloodstains so you can investigate a crime scene. it’s like a polarizing camera filter that cuts out glare so you can see details. once you’re aware of what society deems ‘other’ or ‘exception’, you can see where to focus change to fix it.
the theory of privilege is a lens for seeing society more clearly, not a hammer to hit people with.
Reblogging for this comment here. Thank you.

The coyote who carries the river is a piece of headworld folklore I’ve developed surrounding Ruanhai’s main waterway.
In a time of great drought, there was a coyote who was so confident in his ability to find water in the ground, he boasted to the sky he did not need to rely on the rain for his drink.The coyote who cackled at the god of rain was made to carry a river on his back. Cursed by this god of fertility, wherever he ran Ruanhai’s river was left in his footsteps, and as he paced its canyon was worn into the earth itself.
Kind of a cheap ‘ahaha look we can explain desert geography’ sort of myth. It originated in Ruanhai’s Marazuli culture and is shared by many storytellers as a piece of local lore. There is a bit of superstition surrounding the coyote of the river, many nomadic traders believe him to be an angry spirit of some form or another. Often storytellers from their troops will weave their own tales of him as they tell the original legend. Those who claim to spot him have often mentioned glowing orbs and glimpses of a coyote by the water with heavy cataracts in each eye. Some say he had the river strapped to his back, some say tied, others claim it has been fused in place of his missing tail, and many just leave it up to imagination. I say the hell with it let’s strap this baby on with bark and moss/algae and shit, we’re by the water anyway this is fertility god stuff.
Anyway this was a fun little muse! I might draw him again in the future c:
If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.
Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite
This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.
I was ready to be mad and then I was not hah
Someone actually took time to sign up to comment on my website for the first time in response to this strip for the express purposes of responding with “meh.” That is exactly how indifferent and apathetic they were to this strip.
I presume someone has already made the ‘Take me on’ by a-ha! video joke already?
Nothing that I can write will replace the impact of watching this 4 minute video, produced by ABC News 7 of a Bloomfield, NJ police department’s arrest of Marcus Jeter: Particularly rich were the r…
Brilliant marketing campaign to make the American populace not just welcome, but embrace MORE surveillance by militarized authorities.

I initially reblogged these without commentary because I liked the art, but something made me uncomfortable about them, especially the Ursula one. After discussing with Rooyena, they helped pinpoint what it was - the inherent misogyny and homophobia in such a depiction. Misogynistic because Ursula is /supposed/ to be a fat, voluptuous, highly sexual-in-the-feminine-sense character, and genderswapping her to be a thin, muscular man destroys those attributes. She’s all about how curvaciousness can be sexy and how that sexiness is threatening to the virginal Ariel and the chaste Triton. Saying that she’s somehow more appealing as a thin man is fucked up. And the homophobia is apparent in the idea that a feminine man cannot be attractive or feminine unless he’s conventionally attractive (read: slim and/or muscular). Could a fat man not be depicted as being attractive? Why not? That shit is fucked up.
