People Now Whining that Extroverts Have ‘Social Privilege’

I am fascinated by the litany of BS that flows out of the social justice warrior mindset.

Between time spent checking our privilege and avoiding all microaggressions and mansplaination, we're inundated with the sad sounds of the world's smallest violin.

And there's a new tune, it seems, with every passing week.

This week, the victim of the hour is the introvert. Pity her and imagine the many ways we can compensate her for the privilege she lacks.

Quote:
Social Justice Warriors have found a new thing to be upset about: the institutional oppression that introverts endure because “this culture has been built for extroverts” and that gives them “social privilege.” No. I’m not kidding. It’s a thing, and apparently such a big thing that an Everyday Feminism contributor named James St. James felt the need to write a whopping 1,700-word piece about it, titled “6 Examples of How Extroverts Benefit From Their Social Privilege.” In plain language, those six “privileges” are: 

1. Not having to “forsake your basic needs” like food and going to the bathroom because your roommate has company over and “when [your] daily person quota has been filled, hunger is the lesser of two evils.”
2. Not having to leave a store empty-handed because you can’t find what you need after looking for several hours and are too afraid to ask an employee.
3. Not “risking bodily harm” because you walk so fast in order to get away from the crowd and close your eyes every time you turn a corner and so are “pretty much guaranteed to smack into somebody.”
4. Being able to find a job more easily, and if you think it’s just because you’re a “great worker, and all that,” St. James clarifies that that’s just because “extroverts don’t seem to understand the amount of privilege actually helping them,” like being able to socialize.
5. Being able to make friends more easily because you talk to people.
6. Not having to be as tired as introverts are all the time because having to be around other people (something that St. James refers to as “daily socialization demands”  and “human chores”) leaves you “ready to collapse.”  “For the longest time – like, at least 25 years of my life – I thought something was wrong with me,” St. James explains. “Turns out I’m just an introvert.”

Why do you assume that the introvert is a woman? You sexist jerk!

I am so glad I live in the mid-West where I do not meet freaks like these people on a daily basis!

What is sad too is that at least 19th century leftism was focused on helping the masses.

And mid-20th century leftism was concerned with large minorities.

21st century leftism seems increasingly concerned only with small minorities with ridiculous grievances.  Take transgender people, for example.  What percentage of the population do they comprise?  Yet look how much energy the left expends on their 'rights'.

DAILY BASIS.???.   I've never met anyone like that in my whole life...

I imagine if we read the article that inspired the rant it would come off quite different.

Welcome back and shame on whoever banned you considering how much of a blind eye gets turned on our rightwing trolls. It seems the rules don't really apply unless you're left of the dial.

True..  They are easily offended.  All of one individual has written an article about what it's like being introverted you know.
