Privilege is a dynamic that exists when people who feel unwelcome are made to feel that their concerns are unimportant. As evidenced in this thread.

And that's not the issue. Feel free to defend and make welcome who you want. But just understand that this place is not welcoming for many. Apparently the response to that is, "so what?"

I prefer to be a bit more inclusive, that's all.
I did not say people are not welcome. *You* read into that. it, people feel unwelcome. That's too bad. I do, some don't, I can't do much about that.
@ygirl-got it, you can take care of yourself.
