When someone says “check your privilege” the correct response is not

bonesandbirch:

  • I have freedom of speech
  • You’re just stating your opinion
  • Stop harassing me
  • I’m not sexist/racist but…
  • Stop being such a bitch
  • Everything you say is just opinion anyway
  • well you’re just wrong
  • omg bitch

The correct response is:

  • Thank you for pointing that out
  • I will work on that
  • Can you point me in the direction of some articles or resources?
  • I’ve not thought of it that way before
  • I will be more conscious from now on
