Scored +107. Being a straight white male is already +80. The only reason I'm not higher on the list is because France is somehow equated with Spain, which is hilarious and sad at the same time.
I'd rather live in Spain than France.
I personally find that putting the eight world power (or is it sixth? Cant remember) and a country currently selling out 27% of its state ownings as equally non-privilegied is showing a small lack of general culture. Nothing else.

I'm pretty sure that that chart predates the crisis in spain.

Middle class in France and Spain is also the same level of privilege as being an Egyptian trillionaire.  It's supposed to be absurd.

Wait, I actually went back and read the privilege thing. If you think it was meant seriously, I'm honestly doubting that you have basic reading comprehension or critical thinking skills. Go back to third grade, man.

Being ugly makes you oppressed. Jews are more privileged than anyone else. Passing trans people count as privileged. The "social autist" label gives /v/ as an example. The list goes on - there's at least one obvious joke in pretty much every single section.

Note here: "Ugly = oppressed" is too broad a statement, but I will say that body shame is a thing. A nasty thing.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Nuh-uh, body shame is beautiful.  How dare you shame people's shame!


Ok, that's not really what you're doing, but that's not going to stop me from accusing you.

Yeah, but being a thing doesn't make it oppression. You can get ridiculed for being short too, but that doesn't mean short people are oppressed.

The list also fails to mention people named Dennis or peasants. They are very prone to being oppressed, I mean who hasn't heard of at least one of those?

Passing trans people count as privileged.
That just recovers part of the -75 that's already there.

I guess it could be read like that. Also it recovers 10 of the -500. Not very significant, I suppose.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

It's an incredibly interesting phenomenon. Also it's likely Tumblr gained its SJW crowd simply by drawing from the same demographic as reddit [see; no neckbeards].

I'm continuing reading back toward the start of this conversation and wow, this is like a compilation of every single dismissive lie anyone has made up about /SRS/ and a good chunk of the ones about social justice people on the internet in general.

Also I'd really like it if you stopped referring to LGBT people as "gays and traps".

I honestly think it's just a lot of young women who want to be good people and are pretty bad at it right now, and are also learning to explore their sexuality, mental situation and all that after a life of "you must be a sweet, pretty doll to please men.  No, I don't care if you're feeling bad right now, you're going to put on your big girl panties and please other people" (which might be okay in small doses... I... guess... but it's seriously endless).  There's very few tumblr SJW people who are above the age of 25, to my understanding.
