Check my privilege?

“Check your privilege” is being used to silence debate on issues where certain ideological factions, including Feminists, feel they should simply rule without question, without debate, without dissent.

The sad irony of “Check your privilege” is that only those with real-world privilege (rather than the hypothetical privilege of some dubious social theory) can demand someone else be silent simply for belonging to the wrong race, sex, or sexual orientation.

Being able to silence someone’s voice because they aren’t the “right” kind of person is an expression of privilege and power, not a protest of it.

In light of that, No White Feather presents the following meme graphics for use in response to the “Check your privilege” fad.
