ok so this just hit me
humidifiers fill the air with water molecules from a source of water.
so what if someone filled a humidifier with holy water. would this essentially cleanse a room of all evil?
Either demons aren’t real, or demons are afraid because humans keep coming up with $40 solutions to demon problems.
I really dislike how some people act as if privilege is always black and white. I really dislike how they try to enforce this by dismissing people that don’t fit into their reality. I dislike how they dismiss that privilege, like almost everything in our lives, is a wide spectrum and we can be privileged in some way why being underprivileged in other.
I am an homosexual woman, and also a member of a minority religion (which can be a problem in France). I was bullied for being homosexual during high school. Homophobia and misogyny is still pervasive in French society. But I am also an able white Western European (French), middle-class cis person. I have a roof on my head, I am able to study abroad with the help of my parents, I am supported by my family.
Compared to someone like a homeless white heterosexual cisman, I am still heavily privileged, even if, for some people on Tumblr, a white hetero cisman can’t have any problems in his life. I have food in my pantry and clean water whenever I want. I don’t have to worry about the cold months because I have somewhere warm to live.
It doesn’t erase the fact that I could be attacked for what I am and that people fight to strip off my rights. But it does highlight the fact that each situation is different and we can both privileged and underprivileged. Every one of us can be, even in small ways, more privileged than someone else.
And that’s why using privilege in a black and white way can be extremely toxic. Pushed to its extreme, like some people here do, we deny that bad things can happen to those people who have some kind of privilege over us. We dismiss their being, their humanity, to put them in a small case and then say “you are this, you can’t experience anything else than what I say you can”.
And this, for me, is not social justice.
It’s just trying to gain power over others to feel better about oneself.
