In what ways are you privileged?

Until I moved to FL I had never seen trailers or imagined people could live in them. People have told me that I'm sheltered, like a friend who "grew up poor" when I didn't believe they've never flown on an airline or experienced summer camp. She also went "boy you're spoiled" when I couldn't find the button to roll the windows down in her car lmao!

I wasn't raised on the poverty line and my health is generally ok (not sense or physical issues). I also don't have any severe issues with my appearance that may cause me to be ostracised by society.

I am privileged to have such supportive parents that made me who I am today. I am privileged for my health for being able to talk and have two eyes to see the beauty of the world.

I'm in a situation were I don't have to worry about money. That might change in the future but for now I am good. The second half of my life so far no problemo with money and stuff like paying the rent, paying for a car, wining and dining etc. To tell the truth, I don't have to pay anything for all of that and I am 34 years old. I use my money for my hobbies or for gifts and presents for the family. The first half of my life, when I still lived with my parents, was different. My father is a loser who could not feed his family and who would rather go into a casino and waste the little money he made. It was like a feast if we [...]

I have a shelter, food on my table, electricity, potable and hot water. I live in a country where we have a great healthcare system. I've been able to travel a lot. I can buy unnecessary stuff just to treat myself, I have a car, I have good friends and my two fluffy babies are saints tbh. Also.. Even when I didn't end my College days, I had the chance to have an education. My family is far from being perfect but I guess I had good foundations. I'm a woman born in a place where I don't have to suffer a female circumcision, or being stoned because some asshole decided to rape me. Either I had to hide my whole body even my head [...]

I may roam 3 countries without border checks or searched by police and asked if my suspiciously "asian" face means I am dealing with cocaine. Also nobody polices me when I'm tanning in the nude on my balcony/rooftop.

I'm white, heterosexual, male, intelligent, healthy, I was not abused at home, I have good friends and i live in a rich country

Born white in America to two middle class people, who were also born in America, and whose parents were born in America. Big ones, they've played a very significant role in the outcomes and preservation of my life. I have a (imo) nice place to live (with clean, running water, and electricity and air conditioning and heating if I need it), and a working car, that I was only able to afford because my parents and step-father helped me. I'm also able-bodied, I can easily do things on my own that people take for granted, like bathe. I can access healthcare (for now !).

I also have beautiful handsome sons that aren't people, and [...]
