Emm, that is a very powerful statement, thank you. It was precisely what I meant by unexamined privilege.

I have recently been on the receiving end of some people reacting badly against being told they have privilege, personally I think they were entirely ignorant of the term but I have seen people get defensive about it before because they take it as an accusation, rather than it just being, what upsets me would be people who deny it and get hostile.

The situation I am referring to hurt many women (myself amongst them) and denied them a safe space, I was gutted. I still get a bit emotional when I think about it.
