Compendium | Ask The Weekly: Check your privilege


Dear Weekly,

People keep telling me to check my privilege. It’s so fucking frustrating to have my opinion undervalued just because I’m a straight, white, middle-class guy with a not-unimpressively muscular (and abled) body. Right?

The other day somebody told me I that I was being “kind of a huge dick” for saying that poor people are a burden on the rest of us. Like, earth to poor people, I have feelings too. Check your poverty, gawd.

Any go-to snappy responses to knock people down a peg?

—Not an oppressor

Hey asshole,
