what is your privilege doing to you?

This is a question I get often- kind of the “what’s in it for me” response…. I’ve always thought the answer was rather obvious, in that systems of oppression also harm the oppressor…. on that line, I’ve included two items here- one is a blog post on white privilege, that if you read to the end, will make you shiver…. the other is an image of a quote that captures how men are harmed by patriarchal systems, even while being privileged within them.
