Class privilege is the only form of privilege. If you disagree with this statement, unfollow me.

Yeah you’re wrong bro.

No, he is right. Race privilege is transient, gender privilege is relative, class privilege is constant.

So it’s more complicated than racial, gender, sexuality, ability hierarchies all being applied in the same way across all places.  But even in the way that you describe it, there still exists discrimination and subsequently privilege.  The argument can also be made that the nature of how this discrimination is applied is determined by capitalism, but that doesn’t mean that class is the only privilege.

Not least because there’s a massive issue of using class oppression to ignore other forms of discrimination.  The language used here erases such struggles rather than working with them for liberation of all.
