Hello,

You're not familiar with the pains and the frustrations of the marginalized community.

Is the above okay?


Also can we skip 'the' before frustration, or is the repetition of 'the' the second time also necessary?

Thanks.

Is the above okay? Yes. You could skip the contraction if you want a touch more formality. (You are not . . . )


Also can we skip 'the' before frustration, Yes, but keeping it makes the sentence a tiny bit more rhetorical., ie like it is part of a speech.

Yes, and I would. It sells the drama too hard.
