Bad, Baseball, and Desk: sandersstudies My sociology professor had a really good metaphor for privilege today. She didn't talk about race or gender or orientation or class, she talked about being left-handed. A left-handed person walks into most classrooms and immediately is made aware of their left-handedness - they have to sit in a left-handed seat, which restricts their choices of where to sit. If there are not enough left-handed seats, they will have to sit in a right-handed seat and be continuously aware of their left-handedness. (There are other examples like left-handed scissors or baseball mitts as well.) Meanwhile, right-handed people have much more choice about where to sit, and almost never have to think about their right-handedness. Does this mean right-handed people are bad? No Does it mean that we should replace all right-handed desks with left-handed desks? No But could we maybe use different desk styles that can accommodate everyone and makes it so nobody has limited options or constant awareness that they are different? Yes. Now think of this as a metaphor. For social class. For race. For ethnicity. For gender. For orientation. For anything else that sets us apart madamedraconis WHY DOESN'T THIS HAVE MORE NOTES?

Bad, Baseball, and Desk: sandersstudies
 My sociology professor had a really good
 metaphor for privilege today. She didn't talk
 about race or gender or orientation or class,
 she talked about being left-handed.
 A left-handed person walks into most
 classrooms and immediately is made aware
 of their left-handedness - they have to sit in a
 left-handed seat, which restricts their choices
 of where to sit. If there are not enough
 left-handed seats, they will have to sit in a
 right-handed seat and be continuously aware
 of their left-handedness. (There are other
 examples like left-handed scissors or baseball
 mitts as well.)
 Meanwhile, right-handed people have
 much more choice about where to sit, and
 almost never have to think about their
 right-handedness.
 Does this mean right-handed people are bad?
 No
 Does it mean that we should replace all
 right-handed desks with left-handed desks?
 No
 But could we maybe use different desk styles
 that can accommodate everyone and makes
 it so nobody has limited options or constant
 awareness that they are different? Yes.
 Now think of this as a metaphor. For social
 class. For race. For ethnicity. For gender. For
 orientation. For anything else that sets us
 apart
