so, i know we have two different prvilage threads going right now, so let me know if i'm overdoing it here, but i think straight privilage is also something that is important to examine. here are some examples that i've mostly noticed a few i've experienced firsthand.
as a straight person there is no reason to keep your sexual orientation or identity a secret.
you can be sure that your parents and family won't disown you or think worse of you simply based on your sexual orientation or identity.
you can be sure that people through out history and in the mainstream media with the same sexual orientation as you will be widely represented, and if they maybe wern't that fact is largely questioned and debated.
you can be sure that your sexua orientaton won't be a disadvantage to you in your everyday interactions.
you can be sure that your legal rights as a straight person arn't going to be constantly debated politically and tried in a court of law.
you can be sure that you won't be judged and harrased based soley on your sexual orientation.
you can be sure that you sexual orientation won't effect how you advance in the work place, it won't be an issue when applying for a job.
if your spouce of the opposite sex suddenly dies without a will you can be sure that you will be able to inherit some of their wealth or valuable belongings. and you can collect social security if they die before you.
if your spouce of the opposite sex dies, you can be sure you will be mentioned and acknowleged in obituaries and eulogies and during the funeral or memorial service.
you can easily get leggally married.
you can be affectionate (hold hands, kiss, cuddle) with some one of the opposite sex in appropriate public settings without worrying about people staring at you, rude comments or harrasment.
you can be sure that your sexual orientation is the "norm" and is never considered, sinful, wrong, weird, strange, trendy etc.
you will most likely not be told your "just going through a phase" when discussing your sexual orientation.
i know theres many more i'm not thinking of but thats some off the top of my head.
