Some people really are just that stupid.
So, when you have a friend who achieves a major life goal, do you…
(A) Congratulate them?
(B) Share in the joy of the moment?
(C) Give them a guilt trip?
Well, for ONE sociopath, the answer is a solid ‘C’.
But it boomeranged. HARD.
Since the names are obscured, we’ll just use red and yellow to identify the speakers.
Red: Thank you eveyone for all your support!!! I’m so happy to say after years of hard work I have been accepted into Yale Med School!!!
There’s a long road ahead!
Yellow: Good job. Might I add a shout out to your white privilege for you
Red: ?? LMAO you just have to insert your opinion everywhere?
Yellow: Just saying you come from a white privileged background you make it seem like you did all of this yourself, but I’m just keeping things real by giving a nod to your privilege
Red: Melissa, I grew up in a foster home. Both my parents were alcoholics and gave me up when I was 5. I had to take care of my brother for 2 years until we got adopted, and then we were both abused by that family and had to go back into the orphanage for another 2 years.
I spent long nights studying and working part-time in high school just to support myself and my brother. I was lucky enough to have good grades to get into a decent undergrad. After 8 years of late nights, study groups, no dating, no partying, weekend studying, working, and applying to scholarships and loans I finally got accepted into my top choice. I understand the concept of privilege but it sounds more like you are trying to condescend me rather than be helpful.
Yellow: Umm, Ok sweetie, you claim to understand privilege, but you can’t even self-crit. buh bye.
And this is why privilege is a bogus term.
We’ve got girls like this one who had to slog through hell to claw their way to a ‘normal life’ will be called ‘privileged’.
But others with a silver spoon in their mouths — say, the Obama girls — will not.
Would this be a bad time to mention that Ivy League schools are a really dumb place to invoke the ‘privilege’ argument? Maybe they missed this story? LMAO: Ivy-League School Gets BUSTED For Bizarre Racist Application Policy
You want to raise girls with the kind of drive and tenacity that this Brand New Med Student has?
Give them this:
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
