You should judge people as individuals, not simply based on their race or gender.

Privilege is not an attribute of an individual. It is a status that society proffers based upon an attribute or set of attributes.

I do not blame you for being elevated beyond your abilities or innate qualities. I blame society. You're just the lucky beneficiary who otherwise wouldn't be able to cut the mustard. And yes, I mean you as an individual. Now I might blame you for lacking the awareness to recognize the benefits you have been afforded, however. Again, I mean you personally.

As a white male with a disability that makes it difficult to keep a job (companies don't follow anti-discrimination laws despite being able to do the work), I consider anyone saying white males have innate privileges for being white and male to be illegal hate speech against me. Please remove all content referencing male privileges and ban the related accounts.

Saying "You are privileged because you are white and male" isn't hate speech, no matter what you pretend.

Saying, "Cripples like you shouldn't be allowed to hold jobs that would be better off with able-bodied people and you shouldn't be allowed to procreate and should just be shoved into ovens which would save society a lot of money, plus you all smell bad and are whiny parasites on the rest of us." is probably hate speech.

Do you see the difference, or does your disability preclude you from having any discernment whatsoever?

It does not mean precisely what you think it does. Trump has total and complete control of all houses of government, plus now the supreme court, and him and his party has complete freedom to quickly ram through their entire, radical agenda, which his appointments make clear he will do.

Right now he barely has control of his Twitter feed. And one thing that people on your side of the aisle are learning quickly, it's that things probably aren't going to work out the way you thought they would when you voted for him.

We'll see what happens.

Second, that popular vote "winning margin" is almost entirely in California...if you subtract California from both candidates' total votes, trump won the popular vote.

And if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle. You wanna start subtracting states? Can we subtract Texas, South Carolina and Mississippi too while we're at it?

The majority of Americans have accepted that the election is over and that Donald Trump won.

They also accept that he got 3 million fewer votes than his opponent. Will he be president? Almost certainly. Will he have a mandate? Certainly not. Will he be considered legitimate at any point in the 18 to 30 months he'll be president? Nope.

One group says "I don't believe in this global warming stuff - it has the same pattern as everything else the left made up to seize power." The experts say "the science is settled, shut up you denier". Result: Trump is president.

That's an interesting take. I guess that means that when Obama won two elections and leaves office with a higher popularity than Ronald Reagan, during those eight years climate change was real?

Or are Trump voters kind of stupid people? I heard Ann Coulter today complaining that Donald Trump is betraying his supporters. She remarked, "It's not my fault".

Despite the fact that she wrote a book titled, "In Trump We Trust". Yes, it appears that Trump supporters make up most of the ass end of the Bell Curve. I assume you've joined their brilliant #DumpKellogs boycott in which they buy Kellogs products and then post selfies of them dumping out those products. That they just bought. Before that, they held a boycott of Starbucks in which they went to Starbucks, bought a $6 coffee and then forced the girl at the counter to write "Trump" on their cup. Not quite clear on the whole, "boycott" concept, but they sure are enthusiastic.

Here are some more enthusiastic Trump supporters:

So here what: Trump and his supporters will not be normalized. There will be no point over the next two years when Donald Trump is accepted as President in any normal sense. And when it comes right down to it, there are 3 million more people who voted for someone everybody hated instead of Trump. He's going to have a hard time claiming any mandate or legitimacy. He's the second Republican president in a row who got fewer people to vote for him than the losing candidate, and he has to make sure to stop any effort to actually count all the votes and audit the election process in order to hold on to power. He's already a lame duck and he hasn't been sworn in yet.

Experts thought the knew the outcome to a 98% certainty at its highest, and on election night, is only went down to somewhere in the 80's and in the end got it totally wrong.

Not totally wrong. The winning margin in the popular vote, which is now approaching 3 million, is almost exactly where most of the "experts" put it.

As for the Electoral College, those votes still haven't been cast and the recounts haven't taken place. Expect an interesting few weeks.

It's the school system that created all this snowflake syndrome we have now.

Let's see who the snowflakes are. In the past week or so, Trump supporters have been triggered by:

1. A Broadway play.
2. Starbucks
3. cornflakes

The main Trump, Donald even tweeted a demand for a safe space at the theater:

There is nobody more sensitive and thin-skinned than a Donald Trump supporter.
