Talking about privilege is tricky. People become very defensive when you bring it up because they feel like you're invalidating their experiences or telling them their pain isn't there.
But that's not what privilege is about. It's about pointing out the societal benefits you've had in this world because of basic facts about yourself (like being white, cisgender, heterosexual, etc), and understanding that others who are not in the same position as you have not had those same advantages.
Not all experiences are universal which is why it is so important to listen to the underrepresented and less privileged when they share their stories and talk about the things they have faced. You do not get to silence the words of hardship when you do not live those hardships everyday. Let those voices rise so we can be better.
My privileges include being white, cisgender, middle class, having a Christian family (though I am agnostic, myself), being thin, and conventionally attractive.
My hardships include being a woman, bisexual, and disabled/chronically ill.
None of those things make me a better or worse person, deserving more or less respect. They are facts, plain and simple.
