those privileged cancer having fucks HOW DARE THEY
God damn that’s powerful.
No it isn’t it’s just a comic by someone who doesn’t understand what privilege in society is.
YEAH YOU KNOW ALL THOSE CANCER PATIENTS WHO ARE GOING THROUGH PAINFUL CHEMOTHERAPY RACKING UP TREMENDOUS DEBT THROUGH MEDICAL BILLS AND FUCKING DYING, OFTEN PAINFULLY
WIELDING ALL THAT SOCIETAL PRIVILEGE FROM THEIR FUCKING HOSPITAL BEDS
I think you don’t quite understand that someone who is cishet white able and male can have an awful life and someone who is trans bi black and disabled can have a great life. But, using men as an example, men benefit from the system and won’t be discriminated against because of their gender. They have privilege because they don’t face the same obstacles women do. Same for all the other examples. A cis person won’t be fired or assaulted for being trans, and has a lesser chance of being killed/raped/assaulted all together.
Hmm, I’ll need to go tell my mother, whose been fighting cancer for the past seven months, how privileged she is.
Mind you, she’s bald, all her fingernails and toenails have fallen off, she had to have half the tissue in her left breast removed, and she can’t go outside in cloudy weather without multiple layers and sunscreen.
You can just feel the privilege oozing off her. Or maybe that’s the radiation and chemotherapy coming out.
1) That’s not what privilege is
2) My mum got terminal cancer in 2009
Alright then smartass, tell me. Tell me what privilege is?
Privilege is any unearned benefit or advantage someone receives in society by nature of their identity. Examples of aspects of identity that can afford privilege: Race, Religion, Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Class/Wealth, Ability, or Citizenship Status. It means you don’t suffer from systematic oppression. A cis person won’t lose a job or be killed for their gender identity, are more likely to get a job, etc.
dang i got a comic based on me
also tumblr user orion-the-oreo you are doing good work, keep it up
I love how they cast you as a tomboyish white girl because of course that’s what All SJWs Look Like
Or they were cast as a “tomboyish white girl” because plebcomics didn’t know what they actually looked like. Because pleb has made comics with SJWs cast as many sizes, both sexes and a variation of races.
But I suppose that’s too logical for you.
My friend has brain cancer, his skull is deformed as a result.
His mother was a psychopath who attempted to kill him several times as a child. Left physical damage that most likely led to the trauma in his brain.
Got beat by his dad a year ago, got kicked out. Lived on the street for weeks. While sick. Poor as hell. Chased by police for sleeping on park benches, starved.
Guess what. WHITE STRAIGHT MALE.
Thank god he got his life together.
But I am pretty sure most of you live a more luxurious life, whining on the internet about SJ and the Patriarchy, from your IPhone or MacBook.
SO MUCH OPPRESSION.
EDIT: The idea of one race/gender having a certain “privilege” over another is not completely unfounded, and can effect all, regardless of race or gender. But they sabotage the idea, becoming racists/sexist themselves.
All these white college kids that probably live in the middle of fucking nowhere need to find something better to do with their time than try to convince themselves they’re making the world a better place by telling someone WHO IS DYING OF CANCER that they’re privileged.
Seriously, shut the fuck up, get off your god damn computer and learn how the world really works.
