Using Societal Privilege

In our society, many of us carry value based on our status. Some examples include being male, wealthy, heterosexual or white-skinned. Has your partner ever:

  • treated you like a servant
  • made all the “big” decisions, telling you what to do
  • acted like the “master of the castle” using that to justify abusive behaviors
  • used heterosexism or homophobia to put you in fear
  • threatened to “out” you to family or coworkers
  • said you aren’t a “real” LGBTQIA
  • threatened to tell your children or former partner that you are in a relationship with a an individual of the same gender.
