    Privilege Theory is Racist
    1. Privilege is based on race.
    a. White people have privilege
    b. Non-white people don’t have privilege
    2. People should be treated differently based on their privilege
    3. Racism is treating people differently based on race.
    ————————————————————————————————–
    C. Privilege is just racism once removed.

    Privilege Theory is Sexist
    1. Privilege is based on sex.
    a. Men have privilege
    b. Non-men (women & the myriad of made up Tumblr junk) don’t have privilege
    2. People should be treated differently based on their privilege
    3. Sexism is treating people differently based on sex.
    ————————————————————————————————–
    C. Privilege is just sexism once removed.

    Privilege Theory is Heterophobic
    1. Privilege is based on sexuality.
    a. Straight people have privilege
    b. Non-straight people (LGBT+Tumblr-nonsense) don’t have privilege
    2. People should be treated differently based on their privilege
    3. Hetero/homophobia is treating people differently based on sexuality.
    ————————————————————————————————–
    C. Privilege is just heterophobia once removed.

    What I mean by once removed is that they’re all based on a proxy indicator for race/sex/sexuality. They say their discrimination is based off of X, but X is based off race/sex/sexuality, thus making their discrimination based off race/sex/sexuality by proxy.
