Are ya privileged?

People respond to the word ‘privilege’ in a variety of ways. Now more than ever are we seeing a differing of opinion, or sometimes no opinion at all when it comes to this word. Some have never acknowledged it. Some are just starting to consider it. Some have extreme views about the privilege they do/do not have. And some have different definitions of it.

Using this as the definition of privilege: “a set of unearned benefits given to people who fit into a specific social group” (Sian Ferguson), with open hearts we’d love to hear the ways in which you consider yourself to be privileged. Our responses are truly an eye-opening thing to behold!

And if your definition of the word ‘privilege’ differs than what we’ve written here, please tell us how. We’re curious to hear what you think.
