"I want first to thank you, watching/reading you advocate is an inspiration. I hope to one day be as articulate and hard-working as you. If you're able, could you point me to some favorite writings on privilege/intersectionality/feminism? I'm interested to see what's inspired/informed you. Thank you!" Writer, feminist (and crafter) Ijeoma Oluo provides ten solid links to educational resources online (caveat: she does state, though, that these links barely scratch the surface.)

Great timing. I spent some time last night trying to have a thoughtful, kind-minded discussion with a guy who insisted "nobody takes white privileged cis males seriously". So kind that I didn't even point out that the phrase "nobody takes white privileged cis males seriously" uses the word privilege. It's good to have somewhere to send him when I get tired of hitting my head against the wall.
