Men are afraid women will laugh at them or won’t have sex with them, women are afraid men will kill them. Rich people are upset that everyone else is calling them “greedy” instead of “job creators”, everyone else is upset that they can’t afford health care. White people are afraid of being called racist by people of color, people of color are afraid of being killed by white people (especially white people in positions of authority, like police). Straight people are afraid of having their “marriages ruined” by other people getting married, queer people are afraid of being beaten to death. Cis people are afraid of having to share a bathroom with someone different than they are, trans people are afraid of being murdered.

This is really just a perfect X, Y statement to sum up the most basic tenet of privilege: if you are privileged, the majority of the time you don’t fear for your basic survival.
