As a white queerish (but not out) cisgenderish (that's... complicated) guy I'm probably not the best guy to talk about privilege, but I came up with an idea about how privilege works.

Privilege is the gift of ignorance (originally I wrote "willful" but BerkRie pointed out that that's not accurate). Having privilege means that there's something that you have the luxury of not thinking about.

What do you think?
