Straight Privilege: Shining Light on Unearned Advantage
Straight Privilege: Shining Light on Unearned Advantage Based on Sexual Orientation
It’s been some 30 years since Peggy McIntosh’s groundbreaking essay on white privilege. It is as relevant today as it was then. But it also serves as a reminder that privileges manifests in myriad ways. Straight privilege is as pervasive as while privilege and both need to be in our collective and individual consciousness. By sharing some of his own life experiences, John unpacks heteronormativity he has experienced as an attorney, citizen, and husband. He calls “straight allies to acknowledge the power you wield in our personal and professional lives,” and to fight for justice by letting go of “heteronormative entitlement.”
