All it means when people say “you’re speaking from a place of privilege” is that you’re likely to underestimate how bad the problem is by default because you are never personally exposed to that problem. It’s not a moral judgement of how difficult your life is.

and the same person who rightly calls you out on talking out of your ass from a place of privilege on THIS SPECIFIC PROBLEM, might well turn out later to be talking out of their ass from a place of privilege about some other problem that impacts you personally but not them. And then you call them out in return, and if they are good at this, they say ‘thank you’ and correct themselves. That’s what the community is for and about, and there is no hierarchy ❤
