Perhaps it would help to realise that being told you have privilege isn't an accusation. If I say that water is wet I'm making no value judgement on the virtues of wet vs. dry, I'm simply making an observation. Similarly, the use of the word "privilege" is not intended to imply that (generic) you have done anything wrong or have deliberately sought out a privileged position, it's just pointing out the fact that in one very specific area and probably through no fault or virtue of your own you're playing the game on an easier setting than is the default for some others.
