It’s kind of exciting to watch my brother slowly become more socially aware. He’s the epitome of privilege: white, upper middle class heterosexual Christian cisgendered male whose parents bought him an education and supported him until he landed a well-paying job in his field. Stereotypical high school jock wrestler/football player that went to a big football school afterwards.
But he’s super supportive of health at every size and generally against fat shaming, always been very supportive of LGBTQ* training, as an RA at Texas A&M was part of the group that insisted that RA’s get training on being sensitive to trans* needs in dorming situations. And now he’s finally stepping into the race game and is asking/talking more about white privilege and peeling back the layers that he hadn’t even had to think about.
Aaah I love my baby brother. ;; <3
He’s still a libertarian though so we obvs have some work left to do.
