Privilege...What?

:iconhumanknotgirl:
humanknotgirl Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
More confused than ever now. Seriously.

So I'm a frequenter of /pol/, /b/ and /d/. However, for the sake of this discussion, the ones that matter are /pol/ and /d/. See, about a month and a half ago I was on /pol/ minding my own business when I saw a thread pertaining to a certain video. It was a GQ individual ranting about how cisgender individuals need to "check their privilege." Privilege, in this case, means the privilege of having your gender and sex correlate.

My first thought was, "Alright...somebody's trying too hard," but of course the video itself spread like wildfire. So for several days threads would pop up with people parodying it and satirizing it. This led to the mindset of "Oh, all transsexuals must think this," and despite many attempts to dispel this ridiculous idea, it stuck.

Fast forward to the present: On /d/, someone makes a thread asking about transsexual girlfriends. The term "cisgender" comes up (for the record, it is the biological term for natural males and females; look it up). Shitstorm out of nowhere by people claiming political/indoctrination bullshit. And everybody's getting mad.

Seriously, the "privilege" thing is stupid and the people who are clinging to it either want attention or want something to get pissed off about (depending on which side of the argument they fall upon). The rest of us have better things to do.

Bonus Complaint: I have the stomach flu today. FML.

Let me guess. /pol/'s privilege is nonjewish white guys or asian chicks banging black dudes, /b/ has a hardon for ponies and /d/ strokes off to dickgirls. Am I right? I know I'm right.

/pol/s' gotta be the worse out of /b/. I don't know which I find more offensive to the internet; Racists and end timers claiming WW3 is about to happen, or bronies talking about which pony ass they like most and photos of black tribal men fucking dissected torsos.

I really don't know.

/b/ has charm; the potential for lulz will always remain. /pol/, on the other hand, is nothing more than edgy conspiracy nuts. Seriously, in other transgender related news, someone made a thread in /pol/ claiming that the Jews were the reason for their transgenderism. :confused:
