We believe in the contributor telling their own story, and we do not interfere with it as much as possible. If this means that a contributor does not recognize/acknowledge/check their own privileges, we don’t change it (so long as it isn’t blatantly prejudiced). The intersectionality of identities almost guarantees that everyone is privileged in some way – but this does not mean that a person’s experience facing prejudice is any less valid.
At the same time, we invite constructive discussion on our site, and we encourage you to share stories that highlight privileges in others.
