Opinion: Checking My Male Privilege

   My goal is not to make you feel stupid because you believed in this. I did too for a very long time. If you are reading this and currently believe in Male Privilege please keep an open mind. These points are based on evidence and reality. If you have any issues with the article feel free to contact us.


    Here is what everydayfeminism.com (an extremely popular feminist website) has to say about male privilege “Our current cultural expectations, legislative system, and social programming work to sustain a hierarchy that constantly places men on the top. Consequently, men consistently achieve, succeed, and benefit at the expense of every other gender. That’s called male privilege.” Male privilege is the foundation of many Modern feminist issues. From the little gripes like man-spreading to some of their biggest issues like division of labor and their Piece De Resistance, the infamous wage gap.

     The fact is that there is not a single right that a man has that a woman does not possess In the US or Canada. This leaves the cultural expectations and social issues. In our society, women face issues and men also face issues. If you’re reading this from a feminist perspective I hope to expose you to some of the male issues that you may have been kept in the dark about.
    • 80% of suicide victims are male
    • 93% of workplace deaths are male
    • 61% of homeless people are male
    • 84% of women win custody
    • 77% of the victims of violent crime are men
    • 60% of bachelor’s degrees in America are held by women
    • Unmarried, childless women make 8% more than their male counterparts
    • Male prison sentences are on average 68% longer than female sentences
   
    Being a man in today’s society is not all peaches and cream. Neither is being a woman. Each gender experiences unique struggles as well as advantages. Our society needs to focus on each gender’s problems equally instead of sweeping men’s issues under the assumption that they have it easy because this is simply not true.
