First world problems

Benedict Cumberbatch has complained he suffers from ‘class-typing.’

‘I was brought up in a world of privilege. It can ostracise you from normal codes of conduct in society. Being a posh actor in England you cannot escape the class-typing from whatever side you look at it.

‘I realised from quite early on that, although I wasn’t trying to make a class specialty of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals.’

He has a point. But whinging about the problem only serves to exacerbate the problem.
