I just wanted to open a thread about the disadvantages women and children face because of Male Privilege.
The following sentiments echo my personal views.
"Privilege, at its core, is the advantages that people benefit from based solely on their social status. It is a status that is conferred by society to certain groups, not seized by individuals, which is why it can be difficult sometimes to see one’s own privilege."
"Privilege is: About how society accommodates you. It’s about advantages you have that you think are normal. It’s about you being normal, and others being the deviation from normal."
Men are the norm, women are the deviation of normal.
I feel sad when I see women automatically privileging men.
Women (and children) make up the majority of the worlds poor. They are far more often to be left holding the baby. Women recieve less pay for the same job, Women are more likely to be assualted or sexually assaulted. the list goes on.
Where do you see male privilege?
