I saw this little post from one of The Usual Suspects and although in the main, I agree with what’s being said, I don’t think he understands how the idea of privilege having been corrupted by those same Social Justice advocates that he’s always on about.
What he forgets to mention is the harm the term has caused. Whenever a white, heterosexual man dares to speak about anything that has to do with race, or gender for example, their always told to “shut up and listen” (I’ve actually experienced this).
It’s nice that he admits it’s okay to be such a person but no where does he bother to mention that in some circles (his) those that are outside of that circle are not allowed to speak to issues they perceive in society. Opinions on issues that don’t conform to the beehive are not allowed. They’re often defamed and of course, the “Hoarde” are encouraged to pile on in comments and to even attack on Twitter (not explicitly, but when you don’t actively discourage a behavior, it often occurs).
So really, the point is not being comfortable with your privilege, and using it to better others, it’s others perceiving your privilege as toxic.
