Thoughts on Privilege and Structural Bigotry

A friend of mine who I respect a tremendous amount pointed me to this  SJW screed....approvingly.


The article is actually thoughtful and well written, and I don't mean "by the standards of SJW screeds" either.  I'll elaborate on my disagreements with it in a moment, but I urge you to read the whole thing. 

The article ( by a Laurie Penny) is actually a response to a blog comment by MIT Professor Scott Aaronson . The comment (which the author doesn't directly link to) is here. It is also  thoughtful and I encourage you to take time to read it. 

If you've read both article and post, you've already lost 12 minutes of your life so you won't miss what you'll lose by reading on.
