I'm a single straight white male. The same kind that has wrecked havoc on other races and sexes. I don't deny this, I don't deny that being white has given me some privilege in life. How much is up for debate. But yes it is there.
However anytime I've perceived some injustice I've been met with the same response. "Life's not fair". My female boss hired another female for that promotion and I have to train her? Life's not fair. I'm not being paid enough? Life's not fair. Someone else is doing better than me? Life's not fair. Got rejected by a woman? Life's not fair.
So why is it I have to go out of my way to make life fair for everyone else when it's not supposed to be for me? I'd point out how this isn't fair, but then again, Life's not fair.
