Ellis2D2 Yes, I’m a straight white guy. Yes, the world is easier for me because of that. Yes, if you’re a minority, or female, or anyone else who is regularly discriminated against, it’s less likely that you think the world is a good place. I know my privilege, and I am aware of my biases.


I’m also a human being. And these stories are about everyone on the planet. The name of this list isn’t ‘good things that happened to straight white guys.” Go have a look at the actual stories and you’ll see what I mean.
