    Just as Rights are balanced by Responsibilities, so privilege is balanced by noblesse oblige.

    But today all we hear about is Rights and privilege. We hear nothing about Responsibility and noblesse oblige.

    White women are still white, and therefore have white privilege.

    Having a vagina does not cancel your whiteness, or provide a "get out of jail free" card for any possible racism.

    You voted for Obama, but it's been eight years now. Time to stop patting yourself on the back for that.

    And yes, perhaps I cannot know what it's like to be black, and therefore, should not talk about it, but, by the same reasoning, neither should you.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Good heavens, female authors write male characters and male authors write female characters. And black authors write white characters and white authors write black characters.

    The simply fact is we are an inter-subjective species. We are able to share our minds, male and female, black and white, rich and poor.

    I'm inclined to agree, actually, but for some reason a lot of people don't consider that politically correct anymore.

    But, if it were to be true that I could not understand someone different from myself because I have not lived their life, I do not see why women would have this special power that I do not.

    Yes, inter-subjectivity is not politically correct as long as we engage in identity politics.

    To play identity politics it is necessary to deny our inter-subjectivity.

    To play identiy politics it is necessary to deny our very humanity.

    And we know from experience that to engage in totalitarian politics it is necessary to deny our inter-subjectivity and our humanity.

    And you're right: inter-subjectivity is politically incorrect today.

    People who have experiences of things can relate best to it.

    Of course this does not mean empathy cannot be extended.
