Mine, selected out:
white-passing, cis-passing, non-disabled, non-mobility-impaired, citizen of one of the western countries, have regular access to the internet, college-educated, a sexual person, legitimate job (when I have one), able to obtain and consume healthy food without struggle, able to avoid the mental replaying of trauma.

Those last two privileges I did not have in the past -- if you have always had these privileges, I don't think it is possible to imagine how lacking them overwhelms your life.


Not comprehensive, and I am in no way implying that all of these are 'equal.'
