Google, as long as you're pretending my gender lacks "creativity and innovation" I'm gonna keep not using your search engine.

Blizzard, srsly? You're trying to respond to harassment by making it easier for stalkers to find their targets?

Bah. Turning off the computer, now. Sick to my stomach.

I should have realized this before: When people talk about "special rights", what they're saying is that they think *other* people should have no right to the privilege that *they* enjoy. It's the implication on the speaker's part that the privileged *earned* what they're being given. This, however, is generally false, because if they had actually earned it, they'd *say* that, instead of resorting to this kind of doublespeak.

Related to this, the next time says that it sounds like I think they should be ashamed for having privilege, the answer would be: No, you should be ashamed for acting like you somehow earned it.

"I've Got Mine": The inane philosophy that privilege is earned rather than bestowed.
