Anonymous asked: I worded that horribly. I didn't mean "go out of my way," it's not out of my way. What I meant was I'm consciobetwus of my actions. I just don't want to be part of what that poster said, just another part of the problem. I guess I'm not though because what I'm doing is treating normal people like normal people.
Being aware of your privilege can be challenging initially, but really the trick is not be a giant dick about it. You will probably make mistakes, and fuck up, and say shit that is hurtful sometimes. And you have to understand that happens. When it does, own it. Don’t say, “I’m sorry you’re offended” say, “I’m sorry I said something offensive, I’ll think twice next time.” and then let it go. Read, listen, learn, don’t invade conversations that aren’t about you.
I’m not really entirely sure what you’re asking, so I’m answering the best way I know how. :-/
