#29 Privilege (Check Your Privilege Before You Wreck Your Privilege)

So many discussions in the queer sphere today find themselves in a discussion of 'privilege'. But what is privilege? How do you get it? What does it mean for you and do you really want it?

Should Daria, Jillian, Louise, Nicky and Nida not talk about privilege in case they have it? Or is talking about what you don't know one of issues with privilege in the first place?
