Does anyone take privilege discourse seriously anymore? Or is everyone taking that “How privileged are you?” quiz salted heavily with irony and self-awareness? 

I hope that’s the case… 

Either way, I think privilege discourse has basically outlived its usefulness, for a variety of reasons, but most important to me, it’s no longer being used, like it originally once was, to describe ways in which your access to power and your material reality is limited or distorted by structures through the law, culture, society, and other apparatuses of power. 

I think that became obvious to me after I heard about “tall privilege”.
