@horseman6: @bocam: @karkarov:I'll help you guys make sense of this: a straight, white dude generally isn't in the minority in most online communities. Straight, white dudes aren't vulnerable to bullying and harassment that targets them on homophobic, transphobic, racist or misogynist grounds. That makes it easy to either deny that such a thing exists or decide that it's no big deal when it does happen. That's privilege: not having to worry about how unchangeable aspects of who you are can be a liability. There's nothing about straightness, whiteness or maleness that makes people turn out rotten. But, those things will help shape a person's perspective. When people allow themselves to be trapped in their own perspective, they tend to get all riled up when it's challenged. So, if you didn't know, now you know.
