It's so damn silly. These people have no authority to tell you what you can and cannot speak about. It just triggers them that a white male can actually have hardships. Since it conflicts with their world view, they make up arbitrary rules to silence you.

This.

This supposed authority to be the arbiter of legitimate suffering is self-granted. Ignore them.

Best being to be physically much tougher and openly act like a complete scum that clearly doesn't give a fuck, at all

"You can't be racist/sexist against white men" is called a thought terminating cliche. The left uses them a real lot. They are off the cuff comments/quotes designed to stop further thought on issues.

Yeah, I've been there, too - at my worst point, using a walker to get around, barely (and I mean barely), in excruciating pain, due to a brain trauma, spinal cord injury and maimed leg, homeless, in a years long fight for disability, so zero income, watching others getting put up in motels for months and the like while the shelter in town gave me all sorts of shit because of my ambulatory difficulties and because I was "so articulate". That unto itself was an unspoken barrier in getting a lot of aid - if you're an intelligent, educated white male, at the DHS, Social Security office, and other local aid agencies, as soon as they see your face, and hear you speak in a clear manner, you are shut out. "I'm sorry, there's nothing available. Here's a form."

Yeah, thanks ma'am. I'll just head out here, and get a six figure job then, after I spend the next two days bed ridden, recovering from the agony tax this trip will incur thanks to my broken fucking back. I will an asset to wherever I work, as I do most of my work lying on my belly at home, typing about a page every hour, struggling to keep focus, forgetting who my coworkers are, and otherwise being the office sideshow. Maybe they can construct a gibbet cage for me to lay around in, in the middle of the cubicle farm, that I may be a spectacle as I earn my white privilege moneys.

Sorry guys, heh - I am seething with bitterness over the days back when I truly believed in the system, and that things were fair, that need was what mattered. I had to learn the worst way that gender, race and a lot of other discriminatory and identity politique factors poisoned the system, and that the people involved in the bureaucracy were the heart of the sickness.

I would entirely understand if someone did so, and would not shed a tear for the one they killed, back then I was just numb inside though. I'd lost everything, my life, my dreams, my house, virtually everything I owned, in the foreclosure and forcible eviction, my ability to drive, my basic mobility, even my dog, my best friend (though a friend still has him thank god). But the evil, the bigotry, it's systemic. In the end, pulling the trigger would just bring one's life even lower, and the system would get even stronger and steadfast in its ways.

Somewhere, somehow, a force of evil took over movements like civil rights and feminism, and turned them from being about the equality the suffragettes and Martin Luther King fought for (and died for in the case of Dr. King), into exceptionalism, where being different from the "norm", that being the white male, is equated with somehow better, or a higher caste. This is just horrifying.

Egalitarianism, not exceptionalism. That is what hope is about, that is what a better world is about.

I'm surviving. I can't say I'm in a great place, but after that three year period, where I had no money, I was struggling just to prove I was disabled, while I was dealing with the disability and pain and psychological ramifications of the loss of so much (I had been taking care of my mom in her last stages of Alzheimer's too as my own physical condition worsened during it all), it was just ... it was bad. Now, I have that disability income, which means I can pay rent. It's a pretty bad place, a rented room in a house in a really bad neighborhood, run by a shady, exploitative landlord, that pretty much costs me all but about 60$ of my disability income, with some tenants who make me very worried whenever I have to leave my room unattended, but it's a roof over my head, and some degree of stability, and that is golden compared to the hell years. I guess my life isn't good, but I'm doing what I can - I just have to survive til something happens the stars are right and I get Section 8 housing or something. On 690 a month, I can't afford pretty much any decent apartment in this State, to even get out of this dive, it was just my only choice after getting out of the nursing home. If the damned landlord'd let me have my dog, it'd all be so much better, ya know? It's just a rented room in a house though, not a separate apartment though, so even though I've got a doctor's note for him and all, no dice.

But it sounds like all I have are complaint's - really I mean I've accepted what lot I've been dealt. My future's not bright, but I have a future, at least, and I've got to struggle to make it as bright as I can. And given what a wreck my body is, that struggle is virtually all in my mind. Unfortunately, in that realm I've got some mountains to climb, and storms to weather too, but a good life is an adventure, or at least it's an adventure to find the good in life.

I couldn't really operate a manual one (range of motion in my right arm is too lacking) and had asked for an electric but my doctor just kind of blew me off (my physical therapist once I got out of the nursing home set me up though - he was pretty outraged about my PCP - actually my PCP was quite lazy and aloof throughout to the chagrin of a lot of the other health care professionals I dealt with later). I have an electric one now - heh - the hand controls on the right side, which is kind of a pain, it just takes a lot more concentration/focus to use my right hand. But it's okay, I need to keep working with it, I really don't want to let it slack, I am right handed, impairment or not.

Where is this, because in my state, not that it isn't a struggle, but it's not all that common for me to see white men on disability.

Massachusetts. It's not getting disability - though that is an ordeal. It took over three years. Three years without income - and pride had made me wait probably two to three years too long to apply, where I had lived off of savings hoping for a miracle. It's getting any aid in that period where you have no income, you've lost your home (because of the no income), you're homeless, penniless, with just EBT, trying to get a bed, and anything, any sort of help. The only way I got help was because I got lucky. "Lucky". My condition worsened to the point my legs were so weak and the pain so high so frequently that walking was just impossible, so I ended up in the E.R. I explained my situation to the doctor and he admitted me until he found a nursing home, where I got a roof over my head and some peace of mind and care until my disability case finally was accepted.

Same here. Moved out at 17 and couch surfed my homeless ass through high school and then moved to a shitty trailer with no central heating/AC through on of the most brutal summers and winters that Texas has ever had while I worked my ass off 24/7 at a shitty flood restoration job while everyone I knew went off to have a grande old time in college.

I've worked for everything I have alongside my loving wife and together we've built a semi comfy life for ourselves. Now I finally get to go back to school for IT and work part time as a late 20 something paying cash for my schooling.

Nothing was handed to me and while I had some help from some amazing people along the way, I certainly know the gloom of being homeless and the sadness of being an unwanted stranger in someone's home with no other options.

I know what struggle is like and yet I've had rich minorities tell me I'm privileged while they go to medical school supported by their rich family. Shit drives me insane and I'm so fucking tired of this white privilege myth.

I'd say I'm pretty fucking qualified to talk about hardship.

that preference should be given to people in poverty the most qualified candidates, regardless of sex, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background.
