This is a wonderful collection of information, so I definitely want to share this through Tumblr. Credit goes to Tami Starlight for the majority of the list, however I’ve modified it and added links. Vulliez also contributed a few terms.
Understanding white privilege:
Understanding cisgender privilege:
Why racism only refers to race-based prejudice and descrimination against people of colour (in North America):
Why sexism refers specifically to the oppression of women:
A pervasive system of discrimination and exclusion that oppresses people who have mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. Like other forms of Oppression, ableism operates on individual, institutional and cultural levels.
Prejudice and/or discrimination, either personally or institutionally, against people because of their real or perceived economic status or background.
The concept that heterosexuality and only heterosexuality is natural, normal, superior, and required. This can refer to any institution or belief system that excludes or makes invisible questioning, lesbian, non-labeling, bisexual, transgender, queer, and gay people, as well as any system that constructs queer sexualities as deviant, wrong, or immoral. Homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia all stem from and are supported by heterosexism. Heterosexism enforces and is enforced by a binary gender system.
The Fear or Hatred of gays, lesbians, or queer-identified people in general. This can be manifested as an intense dislike or rejection of such people, or violent actions against them. Associated with the system of heterosexism
A way of saying that the various forms and systems of Oppression are not separate, and can’t be isolated into distinct categories, to be addressed on their own. Oppression is a network of intersecting and related forms of domination and the Oppression of one group must be resisted alongside the Oppression of others. *edit – In fact that all things are interdependent – especially all living beings.
Prejudice and power. A systematic social phenomenon based on the difference between social groups that involves ideological domination, institutional control, and the promulgation of the oppressor group’s ideology, logic system and culture on the oppressed group. The result is the exploitation of one social group by another for its own benefit, real or imagined.
Patriarchy in its wider definition means the manifestation and institutionalization of male dominance over women and children in the family and the extension of male dominance over women in society in general, as well as the dominance of masculinity over femininity. Patriarchy also oppresses men through the creation of false notions on what masculinity is defined as. Gender inequalities in our society primarily stem from patriarchy.
Kyriarchy refers to connecting social systems of domination (think different bars in a cage) created through intersetional forms of oppression (e.g. racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, etc.).
Systems of power that benefit and favour members of a dominant group over members of a marginalized group. Privilege is unearned power enjoyed by a dominant group, giving them economic, political, social and cultural advantages.
A now-contested term referring to a socially defined group seen by others (or seeing itself) as being distinct by sharing external features such as skin colour, facial or bodily characteristics, hair texture, and/or a common descent.
A system of advantage and privilege based on ‘race,’ in which one group of people exercises abusive power over people of colour on the basis of skin colour and racial heritage.
Sexism is the outward manifestation of an inward system of values deliberately designed to structure privilege by means of an objective, differential, and unequal treatment of women, for the purpose of social advantage over scarce resources. This values system gives Rise to an ideology of supremacy which justifies power of position by placing a negative meaning and value on perceived or actual biological/cultural differences. Sexism is connected with of the system of patriarchy.
The Fear or Hatred of transgendered and transsexual people. Like biphobia, this term was created to call attention to the ways that prejudice against trans people differs from prejudice against other queer people. There is often transphobia in gay, lesbian, and bisexual communities, as well as straight communities. That gender identity is as fluid as sexual orientation and diversity is the foundation of both.
The biological makeup of someone’s anatomy.
The preferred identity/lifestyle of the participant.
Someone who is not a transgender person, and identifies with their sex.
A transgender person who identifies as a male.
