Currently campaigning to become President of the United States, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand explained that an acknowledgement of white privilege was not a denial of a white person’s suffering. “We just need to acknowledge suffering in all its forms.”
I would like to expand on this: An acknowledgement of the suffering of the Male Labelled is not a denial of the suffering of the Female Labelled, or any other gender identity. It is for the benefit of all society that we acknowledge the suffering of every part of that society.
Let me know if you have any thoughts on this. And if you didn't see Gillibrand's comments on white privilege, check it out here
