People Now Whining that Extroverts Have ‘Social Privilege’

Social Justice Warriors have found a new thing to be upset about: the institutional oppression that introverts endure because “this culture has been built for extroverts” and that gives them “social privilege.”

No. I’m not kidding. It’s a thing, and apparently such a big thing that an Everyday Feminism contributor named James St. James felt the need to write a whopping 1,700-word piece about it, titled “6 Examples of How Extroverts Benefit From Their Social Privilege.”

In plain language, those six “privileges” are:

1. Not having to “forsake your basic needs” like food and going to the bathroom because your roommate has company over and “when [your] daily person quota has been filled, hunger is the lesser of two evils.”

2. Not having to leave a store empty-handed because you can’t find what you need after looking for several hours and are too afraid to ask an employee.

    So the solution is what? Make everyone act like introverts; heavy fines and jail sentences for those who don’t comply?

      I’m not a hard core introvert.
      From the movie Barfly: I like people. I just feel better when they’re not around.

        Great movie!

      • FactsWillOut

        Wasn’t that “I don’t hate cops, but I feel better when they’re not around?”

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I didn’t quite get the quote right, either.

            I’m watching it right now.

          • FactsWillOut

            It’s been years since I watched it, 15 or more.
            No time for movies during the week, with my 9hr days and 2-2.5 hours of commuting.
            I bookmarked it, may watch it this weekend.
            Mickey Rourke had some great movies, like Johnny Handsome, and Angel Heart.
            Thanks again! 🙂

            At thirty minutes she says, ‘Don’t you hate cops?’
            And he says, ‘I seem to feel better when they’re not around.’
            I forgot about that one.

          • FactsWillOut

            Good to know that my pickled brain still works.
            I was sure I remembered that line referring to cops.

    Ordinarily, people try to achieve power through force or elected office. This crowd does it with whines…

    • tom_billesley

      Their social negotiating skills are stuck at “canine”.

        Why insult man’s best friend? Stuck at “lemming” seems closer to the mark.

      I think we can be pretty sure they’d still not be happy.

    I’m an introvert, and I still wanted to smack the sh*t out of that guy! He’s not introverted, he’s mentally dysfunctional…

  • FactsWillOut

    I’m an extrovert, aka a loud-mouthed shnook.
    I flip the bird to at least one co-worker a day.
    I ask storekeepers questions like “So, you don’t sell uninsulated work-boots, even in the middle of July?”.
    I have no problems with introverts, per se, but if someone can’t pee because other folk are around, I would still laugh at them when they wet themselves.

    • Justin St.Denis

      It isn’t rocket science. Most people inadvertently wife their feet on those who behave like doormats. During one of my brief periods of employment, a colleague alleged inappropriate “ogling” on my part. When I was asked about it, they learned (this is true!) that I was completely unaware of the person in question, having presumed that the cubicle the alleged victim occupied was as empty as it had been when I joined the company two months prior. You see, beige cubicle dividers, beige upholstered office furniture, beige metal filing cabinets, beige sweater set, beige hair, beige face, bulbous beige knitwear body – I honestly had never NOTICED her there or that she even existed. And THAT was precisely the problem. She was still “on probation” and was let go. Head cases come in many guises…

      In the book Lucifer’s Hammer, the author made the statement that Feminism died 2 seconds after the comet hit. We can only hope that political correctness also dies that same death.

    I wish the Shiny Pony and Mulcair were more introverted, much more introverted.

    • Canadian

      For all I care, they can introvert one another as much as they want.

  • Frau Katze

    The guy sounds a bit strange.

    James St. James is a Contributing Writer for Everyday Feminism. He isn’t particularly fond of his name, but he has to admit it makes him easier to remember. When he’s not busy scaring cis gender people with his trans gender agenda, he likes to play SEGA and eat candy.

      Sounds like an asshole, doesn’t he?

    Well, the introverts might whine but, well, I have my own cross to bear… I have a sense of humour. In a world run by the po-faced and the tone deaf I find stories like this one side splittingly funny. Well you can imagine how that goes over in the more caring circles I aspire to. Bad enough that I am a balding middle aged, Middle class, WASP male who can’t help thinking that global warming is a crock and there are delightful differences between men and women and that Islam may not be entirely a religion of Peace: I have to try not to laugh when the plight of the introverts or the triggered are discussed in polite company.

    And, people, you don’t know how much it hurts to suppress the belly laughs, choke the chuckles, garrot the giggles. Tears roll down my face. But reading this madness a smile will cross my face. SJWs are very perceptive. They can detect micro aggression at long distance. And laughing in their faces counts.

    No vegan lentil stew for me. No hand fermented, non alcoholic, nettle wine, no fresh goats milk and, sadly, no chances to make jazz hands. So check your privilege anyone who can read these stories with a straight face and a heart of earnest stone. Feel my pain as you reject me.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I share your affliction. I am droll to a fault. I also burst out laughing when things get absurd and/or surreal. I find people who demonstrate symptoms of Histrionic Personality Disorder to be an absolute panic, no pun intended. I find cross dressers hilarious, especially the little lesbos who do themselves up like Puerto Rican punks or run-of-the-mill wannabe thugs. They never expect to be LAUGHED AT like queens have become accustomed to, and react hilariously when it happens.

      And ANYBODY who does the JAZZ HANDS thing will likely be greeted with bursts of loud laughter from my quarter.

      Laughing at idiots and idiocy is not only HONEST, it is LIBERATING and EMPOWERING.

      “You are a JOKE, and what you say or think is completely irrelevant to me, everyone else and even carbon itself.”

      Ah, the good times!

      • David Murrell

        I’m an introvert, and up until Frau K’s post above. I had no idea I was oppressed. All you extroverts in BCF land — you are micro-aggressors, you!!!

        • Justin St.Denis

          Bow low, inferior social pariah! And praise my superior feet! 😉

          That felt good! I think I just connected with my inner despot! 😉

  • Kim Hanson

    Hilarious. Perhaps next they will stand up for libertarians and anarchists being shut out of political power because they have no interest in running other peoples lives.

    • FactsWillOut

      There is no “privilege” like state-backed “privilege”.

    • Frances

      Don’t you mean “ruining other peoples’ lives”?

  • Xavier

    I rarely get angry and have not been in a fight since grade school but stories like this make me want to beat the living shit out of the author.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Yeah, I know how you feel. I go the gym at least four times weekly and work out a lot of that aggression, otherwise I likely would punch out a couple of assholes a week. God knows, they never fail to provide me good reason.

  • El Martyachi

    I was gonna leave a comment but feel too oppressed now.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Extroverts are more likely to die in fights, more likely to be killed or injured in accidents or as collateral damage in someone else’s fight. So there’s that.
