This is an important message on how privilege really works.
a very good post.
privilege is not a sin or moral failing that you have to correct, nor does it mean you have nothing relevant to say; tumblr uses the concept completely wrong most of the time.
the actual sense of the term is more like ‘defaultness’ — being the baseline in society’s eyes, not standing out, not being the sticking-up nail or the squeaky wheel. and the reasonable response to realizing this is not to apologize and feel bad — and it’s certainly not to try to be less default, that goes to really weird places — but to consider your new level of awareness and apply it to the society around you. it’s a useful tool. it’s like a UV camera that shows up fingerprints and bloodstains so you can investigate a crime scene. it’s like a polarizing camera filter that cuts out glare so you can see details. once you’re aware of what society deems ‘other’ or ‘exception’, you can see where to focus change to fix it.
the theory of privilege is a lens for seeing society more clearly, not a hammer to hit people with.

Wait no this wasn’t supposed to get notes
so i have this headcanon that sometimes and i mean ONCE IN A BLUE MOON when nepeta is feeling very sad or very lonely she will ask equius to finger her or like eat her out and he doesnt question it he just does it because hes so flattered that she trusts him enough to let him do that and hes so fucking gentle with her for sure and he whispers sweet things in her ear like how much he loves her and how he’ll always be there for her no matter what and how she looks so so beautiful all the time and afterwards they’ll cuddle for hours and touch foreheads and whisper to one another and maybe cry a little because it gets so intense and emotional sometimes and equius might even apologize because he feels like maybe he overstepped his boundaries as a moirail but nepeta is so good to him and he knows that shes okay with it and they both wake up the next morning feeling really really nice and they drink coffee and play scrabble
i just love meowrails a lot okay
