Reviewing my old twitter posts…

I thought I would review my old tweets to see if I had anything that is now embarrassing (didn’t find anything).  I did discover that none of the short coded StumbleUpon links work anymore.  the only thing worth reposting is my little song in code

if (You==Sunshine && Me.IsExclusiveSunshine==true){
if (Sky.Color==Color.Gray) {

The notion of privilege

I think much talk of “privilege” is actually false modesty on the part of the speaker – probably 90% of it actually.  However, Arnold Kling has a list of other factors, particularly

  • being tall
  • having attractive features (or at least not being extremely unattractive)
  • being naturally outgoing (extroverted)
  • not having mental disorders, such as autism, depression, or schizophrenia
  • not having debilitating physical ailments or physical handicaps
  • growing up with your biological father (particularly if you are male).
  • having artistic gifts

There is no political advantage to either side for these so no one ever talks about them…
