I think the only bad thing about privilege is when you don’t acknowledge all the aspects of it as you just have. There’s nothing inherently wrong with being male or White or wealthy or with having nice things. Not understanding how that informs your life experiences and the ways that others who aren’t those things have different life experiences is the only issue as far as I can see.
