Um... you just fulfilled your own prophecy: you literally just chose to shut down in the presence of a word. Talk about being triggered
Yes, after running any counter arguments I might have had and doing simple analysis (based on previous posts in this thread) leading to the conclusion that anything I say, counter to the position of 'they did the right thing', was going to result in 'you are a white male; you are privileged, your opinion is wrong' response.
When someone pulls the 'privilege' card in a discussion their mind is made up; they are right.
Do not pass go.
Do not collect £200 because you are privileged enough already.
(Also 'triggering' is a bullshit phrase too frankly... 'waah! someone said a thing I don't agree with! they have triggered me and should be made to go away!' is all I see when someone pulls that word out too...)
