"Unpacking the invisible messenger bag"

How does anti-speciesism interact with other anti-oppression work?

"Unpacking the invisible messenger bag"

Courtney Martin over at Feministing has been writing the past couple weeks about what to do beyond naming privilege. First was this piece at American Prospect, followed by a Feministing post that elaborates a little and gives some suggestions for action.

I found these really interesting, as I've lately found myself frozen up in acknowledging privilege, but unable to apply tools to move beyond it because it seems so monolithic and immobile. I'm curious to hear others' thoughts- do you find these problems in your activisms? And how do you move beyond it?
