This will be the only extra credit opportunity offered throughout the semester and I do not bump up grades that are close to the cut off because I offer this opportunity. So please introduce yourself to the class! Some points you may want to discuss include:. This is also in the interest of getting to know a little about the context of our class. We all have areas of privilege e. It is important that we are aware of our own sources of privilege, and how they affect the way we interact with the world.
For example, in the context of this class, I have educational privilege. That means, in this situation, that the material we read is familiar to me, and the academic style of writing is fairly easy to understand.
Why is this important, and what does it have to do with developmental psychology? Rather, the purpose is that we start each conversation from a place of awareness, which breeds understanding and compassion. We are going to be debating some potentially heated topics in this course.
Literacy, rational thinking, introspection would all seem to be viable sources of privilege per the rubric…. How about good genes — born with good eyesight, good hearing and native immunities. Born to a family that is intact and taught me and demonstrated empathy and humility and respectfulness in engaging with others. Those are both things not within your control. People ought not blame their parents or others for their lives after they are 18, but what the heck — talk about what you started with.
Gratitude is never out of style. Bob Armstrong View Comment :. Oh, yeah. I can certainly agree with that one, as well as some people talking about how they grew up in neighborhoods without violence.
I really like this. You can express gratitude for all the good things that you got in life without using their code words. This is getting ridiculous. EODmom View Comment :. Your professor expects you to self-flagellate. Show gratitude instead. Headedwest View Comment :. Sometime during my teens it became very real to me that not everybody else had these privileges. Do they not have any sense of personal responsibility for their own safety? I have white male heterosexual cisgendered able-bodied Christian privilege.
This is a huge advantage. I am openly discriminated against in the law, in education, in employment, and in virtually every institution in society. When I win anyway, I know that it is because I am the very best, despite the playing field being tilted in favor of everyone else.
This must be very annoying to other people. She knows that she is favored by an unjust and hypocritical system. This would be true even if she might have legitimately won in a fair competition.
But the competition is unfair, and everybody knows it, so her achievement is inherently suspect. I am privileged not to face that problem. Each factory has 2 fully operational machines, as well as half the parts to build another one. If the two factories were joined into one and the two halves of parts were built together, there would be 5 total machines.
I do understand that most of them are going along with obvious lies in order to obtain special privileges. And explain why you think these are advantages and not privileges. I should have known what it meant when you treated me like a sex doll, with no intimacy or connection and as if you owned my body.
Or when you made a frightening comment about rape during sex. Or when you groped me in front of others, including your own mother, like you were showing off your sex slave as proof of your virility. It makes me shudder now just to imagine it. How did I let you do that to me? I should have known what it meant when you were violently possessive if another man showed interest in me and I had to give up male friends to keep the peace.
I should have known what it meant when you wouldn't listen to me, did not respect my intelligence and credited others with things I had actually said. You were dismissive of my opinions and feelings in so many ways. This was how you wore down my self worth so I would accept mistreatment. Then there was the silent treatment. The stonewalling. The gaslighting when I tried to bring any of these issues to your attention.
There was the arrogant refusal to do any work on the relationship. All of this was telling me a terrible truth I could not see for 32 yesrs; the truth of your covert malevolent intent towards me.
I was afraid of you at times. I had nightmares about you. A single was not issued at that time, but in , the song was released as a B-side to " Yesterday ". As part of the film contract, United Artists acquired album rights for the American market. The songs were also later released by Capitol on the Hey Jude compilation album in The song is performed in the train compartment scene of A Hard Day's Night.
It was in fact filmed in a van, with crew members rocking the vehicle to simulate the action of a train in motion. Paul McCartney is seen lip-syncing in the song, both in the train scene and in the live performance at the end of the film, despite not singing in the actual recording.
