We currently live in a society where simply being a man is openly considered a bad thing...
While at the same time we are told that this hate is warranted because we are "privileged" and therefore somehow deserve it.
Here is a quick break down of "Privilege" for those who are unaware of it...
Privilege is invisible to those who have it.
SHELTER: MEN are the majority of the homeless (Due to lack of shelters & support for men in need)
LIFE: Men are the majority of combat deaths (Male lives are see as disposable)
Men are the majority of suicides (Due to lack of support for male issues)
Men are the majority of homicides victims
Men generally die sooner overall (Due in part by a biased health care system)
SAFETY: Men are more likely to be physically assaulted in the streets.
Male victims of physical abuse by women are generally ignored, ridiculed, or blamed.
(Even though it happens EQUALLY and 70% of non-reciprocated violence is female to male.)
Male victims of sexual assault by a female are generally ignored, ridiculed, or blamed.
Men are expected to put their lives last in a catastrophe. ("Women and children first")
(We are taught from childhood to always put women's lives before our own.)
EDUCATION: Males are most of school drop outs. (Due to massive bias against males in school)
There are NOT hundreds of scholarships, grants, etc. for males only (unlike women)
Males are generally marked harder
School system is mostly female and teach a female minded curriculum.
"Quota's" prevent males from fair and equal options
There are no male only classes, groups, or study
The schools run shaming campaigns aimed directly at males only ("don't be that guy")
Schools have a bias of believing false accusers without investigation
FREEDOM: The majority of prison inmates are males (and not because "men commit more crime")
Males are given harsher sentences for the same crimes as women
Males are often incarcerated for false purposes due to a bias legal system
Males have little legal/societal help when falsely accused of a crime by a female
FREEDOM of SPEECH (& Responsibility):
Male are held accountable for every word/action they make, even when black out drunk.
(Unlike women who are given carte blanche generally, especially when alcohol is
present or "hormones/chemical imbalance/depression/stress/a male" etc can be
FREEDOM of EXPRESSION:
If is not acceptable for a male to wear certain clothes in the workplace.
(Women generally can wear what they want... even if it exposes their genitals.)
It's ok for a female to openly hate men as a gender.
SEXUALITY: Male sexuality is shamed simply for existing
Male masturbation & orgasm is generally considered gross.(not used to sell shampoo)
Male sexual fantasy is generally shamed (not glorified and celebrated like 50 shades)
Males are expected to be ready when their partner is, or be physically or emotionally
punished. (Sleep on the couch or get silent treatment for saying no)
Male rape victims are simply ignored all together.
Being a PARENT: A male has ZERO parental rights.
If a girl gets pregnant and he wants to keep it but she doesn't... IT DIES.
If a girl gets pregnant and he doesn't want to keep it but she does... IT'S happening.
- If she keeps it against his will, she can still make him pay for it.
- She can also choose if he is in it's life or not.
In a divorce... (80% initiated by women)
- He has a 6-8% chance of custody. (She has a 80% and 13.4% Shared.)
When it comes to "Privilege"... making an apex fallacy about all males having privilege because a majority of the 1% happen to be male, is not only wrong... it's pathetic.
* The most privileged group of humans to ever exist on our planet are white western women.
Quotas, scholarships, groups, government funding, medical funding, protective agencies, shelters, support, legal system biased in their favor, school system biased in their favor, etc.etc.etc.etc...
So if you hear a women claim a male has "Male Privilege"... chances are she is spewing hate against a male based on her ignorance and is using her actual "Privilege" to say what she wants without fear or punishment, knowing that he does not have the "privilege" of being allowed to criticize her back, stick up for himself, or generally do anything but take it.
