    I love Peggy McIntosh's articles on white privilege. I have written a list
    of my own about able-bodies privilege, however, as a physically challenged
    person, I wrote it in the NEGATIVE, about the privileges I DON'T have. I
    know of friends who have written straight p. lists, and Christian p. lists.
    Basically, anyone in ANY minority group could write a list of privileges
    for the majority group, because they know what privileges they DON'T have.

    If anyone is interested in swapping lists, I would be most interested. I am
    interested in the sociological study of the dynamics of minority groups, or
    those labeled "different", and what they have in common, as well as what is
    unique to certain groups. I believe, for lack of "hard evidence", that
    there are more similarities than differences in our experiences.

    Thanks for the great conversation!
