Originally published on Everyday Feminism

You can’t spend more than a few minutes in a feminist space without hearing people talk about privilege. And if you’re new to feminism, the concept can be overwhelming. What exactly does “privilege” mean? What does it look like in today’s society?

Check out this video from Marina Watanabe for an explanation of white privilege and male privilege and visit her Youtube Channel for her other great videos!

Top picture is a bit exaggerated, don’t you think? Is it a pose?

He’s probably a Mason

While doing rituals Mason wear that apron around their waist (to protect their sacred part) and they tend to get a bit overheated in the crotch.

He probably just came out of a meeting and needs to radiate some heat.

Privilege is any form of inequality. We need a global omniarch NOW.

If i could put my “package” on my lap like the lady to the right then I would gladly sit with my legs together.
And as a rule, any time I can convince a female to accept my package they seem to be doing some spreading themselves?

An injustice has been done here!
Why was my post flagged as rape. As a courier I deliver many heavy packages through out the day and have no time to sit with packages on my lap.
Proper lifting techniques require “Feet should be shoulder width apart” thus any female who safely tries to lift the heavy package has to spread their feet apart or risk back injury.

My assumption is some testosterone charged pervert misinterpreted what I posted and in their own deranged minds made it sexual thus fulfilling their own rape fantasies.
Perhaps it is time all AT staff underwent a refresher in Sensitivity training or you start testing for toxic masculinity. I suggest you start with an all soy diet served in the employee cafeteria.

I didn’t flag your post, but I would have. It’s a clear case of rape. It doesn’t matter what your intent was or whether you actually did anything. All that matters is that you committed a microaggression and that a womyn may have been offended. That is the textbook definition of rape.

My apologies. Of course you are correct.
I’m a bit edgy today as I have consumed a lot of Keurig coffee in an attempt to offset the boycott the right wing Hannity supporters have been waging.

I advise to take healthy doses of our pharmaceutical-industry overlord prescribed drugs with coffee which should help you to calm down.

On another note, AT staff is not infested by toxic masculinity. A green vegan diet followed by prayers to Mother Earth in drum circles, ritual self-shaming and flogging for white male crimes and AT article reading has decreased testosterone levels to a nearly acceptable minimum of close to zero.

Thank you Doctor b6 for your medical advice. I had seen your other posts and had missed the Dr. as it was not in proper context.
Last time I mixed prescriptions with high levels of caffeine and alcohol I had homicidal rage and luckily only hurt myself.
However you being a MD I feel like I can trust your advice and am headed to nana’s medicine cabinet.

You are very welcome. With respect to accredited pharmaceuticals, they simply can not hurt you – would FDA approve anything that could be harmful?

White male privilege is

Not having sickle cell anemia
Not being lactose intolerant
Having a superior ability to produce Vitamin D
The ability to get either freckles or a nice bronze tan
A superior brain

Not having that cranky “time of the month” barring them from Muslim heaven

Blue eyed (or green eyed) blondes (and redheads) also have the ability to go to Muslim heaven without being Whiteyfied.

Unlike the other races who have to get used to a new whiter, brighter body, many white males can enter “as is”

Not that we really want to.

Who wants an endless dong that you can’t find the end of, and thus CAN’T engage in heavenly “bedroom antics”.

What about MEN who are offended??? Except for homos like Barney Fag, this guy is offensive to most real MEN. [I still think this image is meant to rile people and, as such, is posed.]

Your comment is yet another microaggression, and you have revealed yourself to be a “broflake” of the worst sort. It’s like saying, “All Lives Matter” in response to “BLACK LIVES MATTER.” You need to go to a reeducation camp.
