2. thanks, and thanks some more for not actually starting one more

 

futile spitball contest. This thread is strictly for vanity, and to ease this group's reputation as outcasts

3. As long as we are conflating privileges, why not go with....

white male Christian first-world straight cisgender rich attractive able-bodied tall above-average-intelligent privilege?

I mean is there anyone who has more privilege than a white male Christian first-world straight cisgender rich attractive able-bodied tall above-average-intelligent person?

5. I'm kind of on the fence on that one

I don't know what it's like, so obviously I have no business even mentioning it, but it is worth pointing out that Yul Brynner did not become significantly famous until he shaved his head.

Then again, one of the other so-called privileges on that list really doesn't have a shit end to the stick, so I suppose that opens up the Pandora's box for all sorts of bases.

6. However, that severely restricts the group that's to blame for the state of the world

 

if we were blaming your listed sub-species, these daily flame wars wouldn't have nearly the staying power they now enjoy. And then what would the warriors do with all that free time?

13. You left out

Anglo-Saxon, and instead of "Christian" it should be "Protestant".

(can't have us Catholics thinking we have "privilege" )

11. Back in the day, the all-purpose "checker" was:

 

Liberal Straight White Racist Male.

Trouble is the highly leveraged pithyness of the description need's a better acronym to save time when a quick smear is needed. All I can come up with is LESWORMs Can anyone improve on this? You can re-arrange the adjectives.

Or it has me? Never quite sure of the possession position given lack of choice in the first place.
