This week, Reddit user u/Mburns15 posed a question to the internet: "What is something most people don’t realize is a privilege?" It sparked a massively viral conversation about the invisible ways so many of us carry privilege in our daily lives.
Here are some of the top-voted responses from users:
1."Privacy. I don't mean digital privacy, I mean a room with solid walls and a door that closes. Lots of people don't have that."
5."Spontaneity in your daily plans. If you’re a wheelchair user, that’s virtually impossible. So few places have accessible restrooms. Some public transport needs contact 24 hours in advance in order to accommodate you. The list goes on. I envy people who can just go with the flow."
