Female Privilege Checklist

I’ve been waiting a long time to say this….Check your privilege,feminists!

As a response to the feminist “Male Privilege Checklist” I’m going to codify the privileges that most if not all females enjoy.

1. From an early age the opposite sex will be instructed never to hit me but I may not be given the same instructions. However, should I strike males I can expect not to be hit back and any social penalties that occur from my actions will actually fall on the male.

2. If I’m not smart, but pretty, I can marry and achieve the social and financial level of my husband without ever working.

3. I can produce offspring. A status which grants me an “essential” status in our species that men can never have and which can never be taken away from me even in old age.

4. Regardless of my mate value society has organized fertility clinics and social welfare programs that will allow me to have children and provide for them should I choose to reproduce without a mate or marriage.

5. I not only have the more valuable and sought after sexual identity, but I also have complete control over my reproductive choice and in many ways over the reproductive choice of the opposite sex.

6. At any time I can abandon my parental responsibilities with little or no social stigma and hand the child over to the state or abort the pregnancy. A male could never relieve himself of this burden unless I allow him to.

7. I am granted all the rights of a democracy without any of the burdens of military service.

8. At age 18 I lose the protective status of the child but retain the protective status of the female. Boys at age 18 lose the protected status of the child and become targets if they fail to gain status after that point.

9. When I marry a man with status I can take his name and become whoever he has spent years becoming. I need not do anything special to be worthy of receiving the reputation he has built. However, if I wish to keep my own name I can do so. Should my husband feel the sting of this insult I can simply call him a sexist for it.

10. People will help me more when I’m in need and I will receive no social penalty or stigma for it.

11. When I’m on a date things will be paid for me.

12. When I search for employment I can choose jobs which I think are fulfilling without concern of whether they provide a “family” wage.

13. I can discriminate against the opposite sex ruthlessly without social penalty.

14. If I marry and quit my job and enjoy a leisurely life with light housework and then later divorce I will be given half of the marital assets.

15. If I commit a crime and am convicted I will get a sentencing “discount” because of my gender. If I am very pretty it will increase my discount.

16. If I am a partner in crime with a man I will likely be charged with lesser crimes even though I committed the same crimes even if I was the ringleader.

17. I have the option to be outraged if my husband asks me if my behavior is due to PMS and later on use PMS as a successful legal defense for murdering that same husband.

18. At age 18 I will not be forced to register for Selective Service and will not be penalized for failing to do so.

19. At a time of war I will never be drafted and ripped from my employment, home, and family and forced to become a military slave.

20. My feelings are more important than men’s lives. Every precaution will be made to protect me from harassment at work. However, males will make up nearly %100 of workplace fatalities.

21. My gender controls 80% of domestic spending. We get to spend our money if we have any and we get to spend men’s money.

22. The majority of luxury apparel is designed, marketed to, and consumed by women.

23. Seven times as much jewelry will be purchased by or for me than by or for men.

24. I have a department of women’s health whereas men have no such department.

25. My gender enjoys more government spending on health than males do.

26. My gender consumes the lioness’ share of entitlement programs while men contribute the lion’s share of taxes.

27. If I rape or molest a child I can expect lighter treatment in court and afterwards receive less social stigma. What’s more, should I become pregnant, I can sue my victim for child support when he finally turns 18.

28. When I divorce my husband I will be guaranteed custody of my children unless I am deemed to be unfit. Even if my husband is “Parent of the Year” 10 years running it is unlikely he will get custody over me even if I am a mediocre parent.

29. When I divorce I can use false accusations of domestic violence, sexual molestation of the children or abuse of the children to gain advantage during court proceedings. If I am found out to be a liar I can expect to get away with it.

30. If a man calls me a slut it will probably hurt his reputation more than it hurts mine, but at any rate the damage will be small and localized. However, if I call him a child molester or claim that he raped me I can destroy him completely and the damage may be nationwide.

31. If I fail at my career I can blame the male dominated society.

32. I may have the luxury of staying home and being a housewife but if my sister’s husband does the same thing I’m likely to call him a deadbeat loser and tell her to leave him.

33. If I “choose” to join the military; the best military occupations providing the most lucrative civilian training will be reserved for me. I will be kept away from the fighting as much as possible to the point that I will be thirty times less likely to be killed in a war zone than my male counterparts. I will be given equal pay for less risk. I will never have to consider the fact that by joining the military and getting a plumb assignment I automatically forced a male out of that position and into a combat role that may cost him his life.

34. If a male soldier injures himself before a deployment he can be arrested and court marshaled for it. If I deliberately get pregnant before a deployment or even during a deployment I will be reassigned and or taken out of a war zone and I will receive no penalty for it.

35. My gender watches more television in every hour of every day than any other group. This along with the fact that women control %80 of domestic spending means that most television shows and advertisement are designed to appeal to me.

36. I can wear masculine clothing if it pleases me however men cannot wear feminine clothing without social penalty.

37. Not only is there a wealth of clothing choices designed for me but it is likely that I will be able to afford or have them provided for me.

38. I can claim that a wage gap exists and that it is the fault of sexism while simultaneously seeking employment without considering income as a priority. I will probably choose my job based on satisfaction, flexibility of hours, and working conditions and then expect to make as much as the males working nights, out in the rain and cold or working overtime.

39. I can be bigoted or sexist against males without social penalty.

40. If I make a false claim of rape against a male in an act of revenge or in order to cover up my own scandalous behavior I may well succeed at both and he may spend years in prison. If I am found out it is unlikely I will be charged, convicted, or serve any time at all.

41. If I abuse my husband and physically assault him and the police arrive it is almost guaranteed he will go to jail.

42. If I am in an abusive relationship there are a multitude of social organizations to help me get away from him. There are few for men in the same position even though women initiate the majority of DV and even though men are hospitalized %30 of the time.

FPC Part 1

43. In the event of a natural disaster or other emergency that requires evacuation I can expect to be evacuated before males. This includes male doctors, humanitarians, politicians, captains of industry, billionaires, and religious leaders. I will receive no social penalty if all of those people died because I was evacuated first. However, should they manage to get evacuated before women and those women died they will all suffer a social penalty.

44. If someone is attacking a person on the street I have no obligation to assist them and I will receive no social penalty if I do nothing.

45. If someone is harming my children and I run away and ask someone else to help I will receive no social penalty for my cowardice.

46. I’m immune to cognitive dissonance.

47. I may denounce the concept of a dowry, however, I still expect a man to give me an engagement ring when he asks me to marry him.

48. I expect a man to ask me to marry me and suffer the potential risk of rejection.

49. If I lie it’s because I’m a victim of a male dominated society forced into difficult circumstances and not because I’m a bad person.

50. If my boyfriend sabotages a condom he can pay me child support for the next 20 years. If I secretly don’t take my birth control my boyfriend can pay me child support for the next 20 years.

51. If I’m uncomfortable exercising around men I can demand a female only gym be made for women. If any male only gyms exist I can demand membership under threat of lawsuit.

52. If my female only gym at the university decides to close early for safety reasons I can scream sexism and force them to keep it open as long as the main gym.

53. If I succeed at keeping the female gym open and I leave late at night and I don’t feel safe I can demand that the university spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for more lighting and police presence.

54. If after getting new lighting and police protection I decide I don’t want to go to the gym anymore well that’s just my prerogative.

55. I’m likely to believe that if a woman is intoxicated she is not capable of giving consent and if sex occurs it is rape. However, if her male partner is also intoxicated he is capable of consenting.

56. If a man is promoted over me at work I have a right to suspect sexism even though I also believe that under adverse circumstances men are more capable than women of making good decisions. (see #55)

57. I can cry and get my husband to do something for me that he might not have done otherwise.

58. I expect people (especially men) to be sensitive to my feelings.

59. I can deny a man’s feelings or disregard them or ridicule him for having them without social penalty.

60. If I lose my job it’s because of sexism or the economy. If a man loses his job it’s because he’s a loser.

61. If I go to a club or bar with my girlfriends and I look my sexy best I have a right to be perturbed when men approach me and hit on me in this public place.

62. Even though men die more from prostate cancer than women die from breast cancer I can expect that twice as much funding is given for breast cancer. The same will apply to any female specific disease or malady.

63. If for some reason I do not get custody of my children I will be expected to pay less child support than another man in my exact same position.

64. If I kidnap my children and I am eventually caught I can successfully defend myself by claiming I was protecting them from my husband–even if my children were given to him to protect them from me.

65. My gender makes up %53 of the voting population yet when I see more men in political office I will call that sexism.

66. If I am married with children and I want to stay home with the kids I’m likely to blame my husband for not making enough to allow me to do that.

67. I think it is my right to work and I am unconcerned if the influx of women into the workforce has reduced overall wages to the point that it’s hard to support a family on just one income, or affirmative action has kept men from being promoted even though they deserved it.

68. I can get student financial aid without signing up for Selective Service (the Draft).

69. I can get employment with a federal agency without signing up for Selective Service.

70. Restrooms for my gender will be cleaner and are more likely to have flowers or other decorations.

71. If I’m caring for a child restrooms for my gender will more likely have a changing table for my convenience.

72. People I’ve never met before are more likely to open doors for me.

73. People I’ve never met before are more likely to talk to me in public.

74. If I go to a bar I can expect that members of the opposite sex will purchase drinks for me.

75. Anytime I find an organization just for men I can denounce it as sexism.

76. I believe that women should have organizations just for women.

77. If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he doesn’t call I have a right to think of him as an asshole.

78. If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he calls me I have a right to blow him off or act like I don’t know him.

79. I believe I have a right to live in an orderly and safe society but I feel no obligation to risk my safety to secure or maintain that society.

80. I like it when bars and clubs have drinks specials just for women.

81. I think that organizations that offer any discounts or privileges just for men is a clear sign of sexism.

82. If I’m white I will live 6 years longer than white males and 14 years longer than black males.

83. If I’m encouraged to get medical care it’s because I owe it to myself.

84. When my husband is encouraged to get medical help it’s because he owes to to me and the kids.

85. If something bad happens to me or just one woman I believe it is an offense against all women.

86. I believe that if something bad happens to a man it’s because he’s a loser.

87. I think that alimony is fair when paid to a woman but not fair when paid by a woman.

88. I’m more likely to believe that women who commit crimes are sick and need treatment or understanding whereas men who commit crimes are evil and should be locked up forever.

89. I can criticize the opposite sex without social penalty, but woe be to the man who attempts to criticize me or other women.

90. I can throw a fit and act like a two year old to get what I want without damaging my mate value.

91. I have the luxury of not being the filter for natural selection.

92. I can sleep with my boss if I want and afterwards I can sue him for sexual harassment.

93. I can wear seductive clothing and perfume to attract a man at work but no one will accuse me of sexual harassment.

94. If I hear a story about Darfur and how men who leave the refugee camps to gather wood are hacked to death to prevent their wives from being raped I am likely to think that is proper but not likely to send money.

95. If I hear a story about Darfur and how women are leaving the refugee camps to gather wood are being raped I’m likely to be outraged. I’m also likely to wonder why these women’s husbands aren’t protecting them.

96. If I ever heard these stories about Darfur it is my privilege not to care or even consider that the reason the second story exists is because all the men in the first have already been killed.

97. It is my right to maintain the belief that men oppress women despite all of the evidence to the contrary.

FPC Part 2

Much as I’d like to claim credit, this is not my work. All credit for this phenomenal list goes to the author or authors.


  1. I recently found your site by following a link from the Counter Feminist. I like what I see so far. Your Female Privilege Checklist is quite interesting. I have linked to it at my site in an article that will be published tomorrow in which I respond to the Male Privilege Checklist. Keep up the good work.



    There are so many more.

    How about male liabilities and obligations to support women while dating, in marriage to support her choices, and should she decide to leave, take his children away from him and guess what……force him by law to support her matriarchal family.

    The day women are independent is the day men become independent from female dependency. In all reality nothing has changed for men since feminism began. What happened was that women gave themselves choices, rights and privileges without having any reciprocal obligations or liabilities toward and for men nor society.

    Thank you so much for starting this blog. The movement is actually growing and we are seeking to create a new academic discipline called Male Studies. Look it up, support it and spread the word. Intellectually Male Studies will provide a think tank and a place for the ideas of the movement to coalesce and become diseminated and expressed.


    • Thank you so much for starting this blog.

      Thank you. I wish I could do more. I wish I could nail a comprehensive list of the MRM’s grievances to the door of the White House,or NOW’s headquarters, or anyplace that man-hating shrews gather,really. But until we can sort our demands out, I will lend my voice and my strategies to any man or group of men capable of making use of them. I feel honored to be able to do so.

      The movement is actually growing and we are seeking to create a new academic discipline called Male Studies. Look it up, support it and spread the word.

      Yes, we are indeed growing,faster than could have ever been expected. Even those who are unfamiliar with Men’s Rights have regardless heard our message,and I predict that soon our message will dominate discourse on gender issues completely. We will win this “battle of the sexes”,as long as we keep up the resistance.

      Though I have not written a post on it yet, I am familiar with Male Studies,and support the effort whole-heartedly.I favor a multi-pronged approach to defeating feminism, using the strategies of modern warfare, and certainly,establishing a mainstream center to disseminate information favorable to our cause figures highly in such an approach.

      I will try to do a post about Male Studies in the next couple of days,if my schedule allows.

      • don’t let the morons get to you, the more we fight their misandry the more they will resort to Ad hominem

      • hahahahaa

        really? male studies?
        History, political science, philosophy and economics isn’t enough male studies for you?
        good luck getting intelligent academic support and peer review for that reactionary “discipline”…

      • …of course there is always masculinity studies in place at many institutions… but it is probably too compassionate and truthful to support your dogmas

      • This list makes the assumption that women don’t have dependents or responsibilities outside of dealing with men. Oh and I’m supposed to feel sooo lucky about the fact that some random creep wants to buy me a drink (usually under the assumption that I owe him something in return) even though nowadays women practically have to carry litmus paper in their purses to make sure their drink isn’t drugged!? And the whole thing about men not having the choice of whether or not to be a parent is total bs. Men choose to abandon their children on a regular basis. Why else would programs like WIC and TANF exist? Also, what if the woman is a lesbian? Does she still hold these so-called “privileges”?

      • MsSmella is an example of a typical female privileges and power whiner (FPPW) troll. She cannot handle anything that points out that females are not perfect because her female power and privilege professors have told her they are, even though they lied.

        Anonymous at 3:#5 on 7/29/2013 is the same way.

        Poor babies. Hopefully 100 years from now their kind will be viewed as the scum they are.

      • Yes José; yes! Men must win the gender war if humanity is to survive.

    • Here’s my view on the whole nightmare that is privilege checklists:

    • Haven’t women for centuries seen male priviledge as female dispriviledge? YES!! the only answer is to finish the feminist movement by embracing a humanist movement…equal opportunity, responsibility and expectations of checking sexism for BOTH GENDERS. This is a woman stating this, BTW.

      • The only way to end the feminist movement is to ensure all men take shit jobs, die on the battlefield, pay for dates and sacrifice all they have of themselves for the coochie and boobies. This is the only way. Ask any woman.

  3. I think that this doesn’t really help the feminist movement as feminism is all about being as self sufficient as men. Most of these point are about the rewards you can gain off a male such as gaining his social status after marriage and getting him to pay for everything for you.

    • It doesn’t help the feminist movement because it’s a backlash, and therefore will be viewed as hateful tit for tatting by angry men. It will be ignored and played down. Only when the genders can honestly see each others faults in how they behave and affect each other can humans move onto the next level.

      • But…but…what if its a tit for tat by all men. What if all men stand together and reject YOU. It won’t be played down then, will it, dear? There is no ‘next level’, dear. You started it! We’ll finish it for sure!

    • Feminism seems primarily preoccupied with marketing rape as some kind of valuable prize to young boys, who of course must be told how wrong it is to steal such value from women and that men who respect women (“good BOYS”) would never do that so that valuable prize is offlimits to them. Only “bad BOYS” who dare get to have all that fun.

      Religion played this trick thousands of years ago: “Though Shalt Not”. And there’s been no killing, swearing or coveting since. Thank the Lord!

      Either feminists are really evil or really stupid. Either way, it’s their Rape Culture. There’s no value in rape. But they don’t want that truth getting out.

    • In what universe is feminism about females being self sufficient? Feminists preach that they are perfect and men are trash. Anyone who pays attention to how feminists behave sees that feminism is about extending female power and privilege while avoiding any female responsibility. Of course, the FPPW trolls (female power and privilege whiner) try to convince people otherwise, but anyone with a brain sees right through the lies, which means only females and some fool men fall for the lies.

      • This site and privilege is nothing but women wanting more dominates of the male gender instead of being equal to males. We both live on same planet, and breath the same air. Why must both genders trying so hard to dominate over each other. It’s pathetic and wrong, and cruel. I don’t care what you feminist try to say about males. Because I see everyone as equal, nothing less and nothing more.

        This whole thing is just stupid and wrong. Instead trying to rage a sexes war, why not work together and try to make this world better place for everyone NOT just females only.

  4. “I think that this doesn’t really help the feminist movement as feminism is all about being as self sufficient as men. Most of these point are about the rewards you can gain off a male such as gaining his social status after marriage and getting him to pay for everything for you.”

    And you don’t think individual women benefit from that at all?

    Also, feminism is more about taking what men have worked for away and giving it to women because they have vaginas.

    • There are two groups of men who are affected by this situation. The first group consists of men who are married and/or cohabitating with a woman; the second is the group of single men who don’t live with a woman. The first group is more heavily (and negatively) affected than the second group.

      Clearly, legislative reform can help rectify theses inequities. In the interim, a rational strategy for coping with this would include remaining single and living alone. Guys – especially when your female significant other begins acting nasty, it’s time to get up and get your ass out the door before you get assaulted and locked up for defending yourself. You can’t do that if you live with her.

      • and…this is why you always leave yourself the ability to say “fuck off” to bat shit crazy. Never…ever…leave yourself without an out with a modern women. If you do, they’ll eat your liver…with onions…and laugh at your sorry ass.

    • You can claim that’s what feminism is about, but that doesn’t make it so. I agree that a lot of these situations are fucked up especially in regard to custody.
      However, feminism doesn’t advocate for these things at all.
      I would argue that feminists very much dislike the system of a woman marrying a man and being dependent on him for everything.
      True feminism is about gender equality- NOT female superiority.
      True feminism thinks women should share the self sufficiency and responsibility of males.
      And true feminism is equally aghast at the fact that a beautiful woman can use her looks to her financial advantage over an average looking woman.
      Many of these points are quite valid, but they have nothing to do with feminism.

      • “True feminism is about gender equality- NOT female superiority.”

        Pull my other leg dear. It plays jingle bells.

      • Unfortunately, “true feminism” doesn’t exist. Real world feminism is about female sumpremacy, hatred of men, and the passing of laws to further those aims.

      • As long as anti-feminists pay attention to the people on the fringe, they’ll always reject feminism. To reiterate, “True feminism is about gender equality- NOT female superiority.
        True feminism thinks women should share the self sufficiency and responsibility of males.” That’s it! That’s feminism! Forming your opinions based on the loud minority is like saying all Christians are like the Westboro Baptist Church or all Muslims are terrorists. We have so many great modern feminists! I can’t believe that all of the old stereotypes of feminists are still being used to discredit the movement. Educate yourselves people!

      • Thank you, Selena! You’re one of my heroes who still knows about old ways. Here I thought everyone just crazy or evil. But you, you’re still one of the few who wants nothing more but to gain equal rights as same as males. Nothing more, nothing less. I wish there is more people like you around who aren’t corrupted.

    • I hope you will read my comment for what it is. Please read to understand my view, rather than just write a response which attacks me for things I have never stood for. Things which you believe feminism is about.

      I am a feminist.

      What feminism really boils down to for me is this; I want women to be viewed as a group of people as diverse as men are. I want there to be a general understanding that I am not defined purely by my sex. I want men and women to judge me by my personality and not by my looks. I want to be seen as a person and not as a 4 or an 8.

      My aim in life is not to find a man to be supported by. The idea of “finding a man so that I don’t have to do any work, but rather ‘adopt’ the status he has worked so hard for’ sounds awful to me. What is life if it is not a chance to excel? To learn? To explore?

      Feminism isn’t about female superiority. I know this is something many of the people here don’t believe. But I don’t know a single woman which wants this.

      What most feminists are fighting for is an end to the extremely rigid gender roles which are upheld by today’s society. To move away from these gender roles would benefit men as well. A few examples from the list:

      11. When I’m on a date things will be paid for me.

      12. When I search for employment I can choose jobs which I think are fulfilling without concern of whether they provide a “family” wage.

      -> These two points are not counter-arguments to feminism, but rather support it. Women want to have the same opportunities to earn money, and with that follows equal expectations in contributing to the family economy as men. If feminism got what it wanted, i.e. equal pay, then men would not have to have the main responsibility for paying for things. (And personally, I sometimes pay for my boyfriend and he sometimes pays for me. I would NEVER expect a man to pay for me. Nor buy me a drink – unless we were doing rounds)

      32. I may have the luxury of staying home and being a housewife but if my sister’s husband does the same thing I’m likely to call him a deadbeat loser and tell her to leave him.

      60. If I lose my job it’s because of sexism or the economy. If a man loses his job it’s because he’s a loser.

      86. I believe that if something bad happens to a man it’s because he’s a loser.

      -> All this referral to men as ‘losers’ is a view which I don’t share. But all these points have one thing in common: They highlight how men that fail to meet the rigid gender role of being a successful, rich ‘macho’ man, are afraid of the label of ‘loser’.
      Again, feminism wants to remove these stereotypes! In fact, one move which I support is shared parental leave. This would mean that the father and the mother would take equal time out of work after their baby was born. This would benefit both genders! It would benefit women as it would give them more equal opportunities as men in the work place, given that employers would not think of employing women as a bad choice in case she would get pregnant. It would benefit men because they would have the chance to get to know their child a lot better from a young age, which could help them develop a closer relationship. I understand why men today feel excluded from the child care process, and I think it would be beneficial to both fathers and their children to have closer contact.

      36. I can wear masculine clothing if it pleases me however men cannot wear feminine clothing without social penalty.

      -> Men can’t wear feminine clothing without social penalty because being feminine is seen as inferior to being masculine. This is what feminism is against. Feminism wants equality. If the genders would be seen as equally worth, chances are that men wearing female clothing would not be seen as so bad.

      I am a feminist, but I don’t hate men! There might be people that refer to themselves as feminists that hate men. This does not mean that feminism in any way has anything to do with hating men.

      If you have made it this far, I thank you, and I want to present you with one more reason why feminism is good for men:

      If we were free from the current gender roles, if women were not raised to be passive, dependent wallflowers, then there would be a lot more fun, active and interesting women. This in turn would make you more likely to find a woman which you not only like to look at, but who also makes you laugh, philosophise, learn and live a happier life.

      Feminism is about women being people that are just as varied and diverse as men are.

      • I am all for equality. The only problem is, is feminism today doesn’t allow for that. They want absolute subjugation of men. I’ve always said that women don’t want equal rights. They want special rights. Because, if women actually HAD equal rights, you would be appalled at how poorly you would be treated. And the very fact that women on here are disputing these issues, tells me that listening to and hearing mens issues is something that women are just not interested in doing, and just dismiss it all as childish nonsense. You expect us to listen to women’s issues and take it all seriously, while not providing the same courtesy towards men. The best show I ever saw, was (Jenny?) back in the mid 90’s where about a dozen or so women from every walk of life, lived as men for a few weeks. Every single one of them went in to it thinking “I’m on easy street for the next few weeks”. At the end if the show, every single one of them, even the card carrying feminist, said that they had no idea what life was like for a men, and said that they would never treat a man like that ever again. The reason that they had no idea what it was like for a man in this world? It’s because you are not allowed to speak of mens issues. Only women’s issues. You as a woman, are the one who has to put a stop to the subjugation movement, because they will not listen to men. They will label you as a sexist pig. Only women have the power to fight for true equality. If you do not stand up and say enough, then you are as bad and guilty as the extreme man haters.

  5. #98: I can kill my husband with a shotgun blast to the back of the head as he sleeps and then say “well…he abused me by making me…” and get off scot free.

    • Marissa Alexander would disagree with you. If you are not white you absolutely cannot do this. You and the blog owner are playing armchair lawyers and most of your assertions have no basis in actual case statistics in varying states. I find this to be the rantings of people with little to no experience with divorce case. Come back when either of you have a law degree and 10 years of divorce cases under your belt.

      • You’re right. If you’re Latina, all you can get away with is cutting your husbands penis off like Lorena Bobbit.

  6. This is the stupidest fucking thing I have ever read. Feminism is about equality. We recognize that being sexist is oppressive to women AND men. At least half of your points are unwarranted assumptions about how women think. And the other half, although you have skewed them, are things that feminists are trying to remedy! And seriously did you look at any FACTS when you wrote this. Or did you just base it on your assumptions about what women want in their life.

    “We will win this “battle of the sexes”,as long as we keep up the resistance.” It’s not a fucking battle, we should all be going after the goal of a better society. Together. The idea of Men vs Women shouldn’t exist. This is an idiotically sexist site. I can’t believe I am even taking the time to write this. You aren’t going to listen and that is deeply saddening.

    • you started this war when your kind drafted and published Scum and other how to do lists on killing all men for your lesbian utopias. If this war was a shooting kind it would have been over, but your right to live as a human being is something we honor unlike you.

      • Woah. Dude, You really hate women. I PERSONALLY did NONE of these things to you. Lesbian utopia? Straight women aren’t wanting this. Knee jerk reaction.

      • “Your kind?”
        Enough said.

    • You can claim this time and time again, but your actions to not match your words. As soon as you began to deviate from what you have said, you became a hate movement.

      • Same goes for the men’s movement.

      • Cathy Creswell, there is no men’s movement. There are a small number of men who see feminism for the blight on humanity that it is and a large number of females, like you, who are so blinded by the lies that you hear.

        Just because YOU hate men, does not mean men who despise feminism and the legalized discrimination that feminists created hate females. Get over yourself.

    • Thank you.

    • No there are those who are listening. I agree with you. This finger pointing back and forth by both sexes is CHILDISH and needs to stop. Not JUST women not JUST men but both!
      What is it about this culture that believes that the only way to build up one group is to tear down another. At times I’m embarassed to say,; ‘I’m an American”

    • Listen up, twat. I don’t give a rats ass what you think. I only want to meet you when this society collapses. I want to hear you scream for a man’s protection while you’re being robbed by another woman of your worldly goods. When you have to beg to survive, I want to see the look in your eye. “I need a man’s protection. Why don’t they come?!”

      Nevertheless, you keep on with creating a gender that hates your damn guts. It’s all good in my eye. You and yours will pay.

      Men know how women think, witch. We’re not as dumb as you think. We know all too well what you’re really after. Don’t think your little speech fools the lot of us. You can fool some most of the time, but you can’t fool most all of the time.

      Saddle up, witch. Destiny will come a calling .

      • This is scary, to be honest. Such seething hate based at a group of people. You’re assuming that all women are these evil creatures out to take advantage of men. Sure, some women are like that, but even they aren’t so one dimensional. Some men are like that, too, in regards to women.

        To say you ‘know’ how women think is hilarious. Women are not carbon copies of one another. People are diverse by nature. We do not all think the same, act the same, nor want the same things. Some people want equality. Some want to dominate. Some don’t give a fuck, as long as they’re not greatly impacted. People are different. Not just women, not just men, but people.

        And just to point out, you’re not making any women love you either. So keep on going on and creating a gender that hates you.

        Feminism is supposed to be about equality. That’s what the statement says, that’s what the majority of followers think it is. Sure, there are power hungry, men hating people in it, too. They might want to twist the cause to suit their agenda. But isn’t that the case with anything? Even with a group of people with a stated purpose, there will be opposing sides, both large and small. Feminists are not saints, nor are they all looking for equality. But what they are is a group of people working for varied versions of the same goal. Just like the Men’s Rights movement.

        There are equally as repugnant members of your movement. People who hate women, people who want to stay at/be at the top. People wanting to dominate, etc.

        But my point is that, as previously stated and reiterated multiple times, we’re all different. Claiming that someone is lying about wanting equality, because you’ve seen/read of/heard of bad eggs of their movement is silly. You don’t know them. They very well could, and most likely do believe in what they’re saying. They want equality. They’re in the Feminist movement because they want equality.

        No group is perfect and all have less than ideal followers present, but you should not put down those who believe in what they say they do unless you know for a fact (not generalized, one dimensional assumptions of everyone being the same) that they are lying, or you don’t like what they say they want.

      • When women stop trying to frame [doing what they want to do 10x more than men biological could] as a favour in exchange for men suffering to please them, you can talk about equality. Until then, your diabolical lies and malicious shaming (of biology) must be kept 1000 yards from children’s pristine minds.

        Or six feet under.

    • Feminist, do you ever criticize females who post lists similar to these about men? I bet not. If you do not, you are showing that you are a typical feminist, which is not a good thing. Just like feminists who fail to fight laws discriminating against men or in favor of females demonstrate the lie that feminism is about equality.

  7. How dare you fucking assholes say we are privileged you oprress us and act like we must thank you for it I hope you all get strated!

    • Ok, make that one #99 “I get to cry whenever a man calls me on my bullshit entitlement mentality. Thanks formanboobz I knew one of you would give us another one!

    • BOOOO! Not fair play.

    • formanboobz, you sound like a moron.

  8. This is wonderful to know I must thank you for this so I can use it to assit in my anti feminist works at hubpages and else where.

  9. Brilliant stuff.

    As an MRA, I am very pleased to see a list written by a female that I can link to other females whenever they talk about needing “more equality”.

    Feminism was never about equality, otherwise it would be addressing the very real points on this list.

    • You girls really need to go to school and learn what REAL feminist is. That’s all about being equal to males, not dominating over males. This is all just pathetic and will do the world no good at all.

  10. thank GOD that a WOMAN wrote this list!!!!!! so now i can show this to other women who are always complaining about the supposed “male privilage” …so it’s a male privilage to live shorter, die defending you, get ass cancer and die,be forced into the same gender stereotypes that women are conveniently allowed to ignore…..what about any of these things sounds like “privilage”?????????? but since this was written by a woman, no woman can say “oh this is all a lie some MAN made up to be patriarchy/sexism/wage gap/etc…” NO EXCUSES BECAUSE A WOMAN WROTE THEM!!!!

    • There are plenty of women who don’t understand the true sexism in society. The fact that this was written by a woman doesn’t mean anything.
      Also…privilage?really? thats what you’re gonna go with for spelling?

      • not understand =/= not agree with you.

    • Again with the looping all women into one category…

  11. Female Privilege Checklist Balance of Power, was a wonderful
    blog title to give this valuable blog post. Exactly where could I read through more
    with regards to this?

  12. Holy shit, lol. U mad?

    I’ve seen some crazy anti-feminist stuff, but this is something else.

    It’s not even coherent. It’s like someone just put a list together of things they didn’t like about women and tried to make it sound like privileges.

    • anon wow pathetic

    • What cracked me up is that half of the items on the list are the result of male oppression and are in no way privilege. Half the rest are just lies. The remaining 25% are “hot girls get stuff. Well so do hit guys, so clean yourself up!

      • hit guys?

      • Result of male oppression? What are we talking about now? It seems like everything men do or say is somehow oppressive to women today.

        Seriously, the fact that feminists keep hitting this dead horse, reading male oppression or results of the patriarchy is not helping anything. That’s suggesting that any policies, thoughts, ideas created by men are wrong and evil. All of the great things men have created throughout history were made to hurt and oppress certain groups of people… and yet, I could’ve sworn modern technology actually liberated people from the hardships of nature. Men never oppressed women. Nature oppressed men and women so much that somebody actually had to get up and do something about it. And most of the time, that somebody was a man who had the heart and balls to risk his life to feed and house his family. And by hitting that dead horse is also suggesting that only policies created by women are inherently good and decent… which reiterates the fact that feminism has only ever been about female superiority.

  13. What? Most of these are completely made up. Did you do any research at all?

    • I’ll confirm that 1-15 are all true I’ve seen those all 1st hand

      • Just because something happens sometimes doesn’t make it true across the board.

    • I’m doing research on this sort of thing for an opinion piece I’m writing (which is how I got here). Some of it is petty, but a lot of it is true. Especially the ones that involve social penalty. I’ve noticed that it is okay to identify the privilege that men have, but it’s not okay to identify the privilege that women also have. There are a lot of cases I have found where women gained custody of children even if the father was a suitable parent. Or if they have shared custody, similar salaries and the father still had to pay child support. I read a handful of stories of women claiming a man raped them, were later found to pervert the justice system and not charged. Even if the man who was found innocent had to undergo decades of injustices… since being a sex offender is one of the most damaging to someone’s name/reputation (as it should be!).

      Drafting is another one that makes me scratch my head… it seems like a privilege to not be forced to go to war. But, it is seen as oppression because the idea is that women are weaker and need to take care of babies. I think there is room for it to be both, since it’s two sides of the same coin.

      I don’t think men will ever have a say in whether or not a woman gets an abortion, puts a baby up for adoption, etc… I think the man should be able to express their wishes, but not force the woman to do anything as it is her body and her decision. However, women will always have that privilege over men, without any question.

  14. oh but its not one time, you seem to think I have only seen all 15 once, I’ve seen 13 done about 3 times to me by three different women I can’t count number 5 anymore. Hell have you seen the male privilege list? That is more mythical than anything here. Where the hell is the male privilege for all the men buried at Arlington national cemetery, or the 70% of homeless men or all the men who are unemployed?

    • Number 5 is complete crap. Do you actually think women have control over their reproductive choices? If that is the case, why is it that incarcerated or institutionalized women are still systematically sterilized without their consent? Or that young women and women living in poverty are denied access to abortion services? Or that birth control is not covered by most health insurance (and yet viagra and other erectile dysfunction pills are)? Or that a young woman can be denied condoms or emergency contraception if she tries to buy it at a drugstore and they decide she shouldn’t be able to have it?

      When you refer to the male privilege list, do you mean the one from “unpacking the invisible knapsack” written by Peggy McIntosh? Or was it something else? I have read the McIntosh piece.

      Also, I don’t understand what you mean by the last question. Are you trying to insinuate that there aren’t any homeless or unemployed women?

      • every anti-abortion bill has failed, as for what I was insinuating is that men are and have always been the majority of the unemployed and homeless. I guess you were just selectively reading.

      • True women have more control over reproduction. A wise partner would get involved, be willing to wear condoms, buy the spermicide, talk about when to have kids, etc. An equal relationship would have both involved, but historically women have been at the mercy of a mans sexual appetite and repeated pregnancies, so the current place we are all at is an attempt to corect this imbalance. The next step is mutual involvement. Anyone want to go the next step, or are we just going to yell at each other across the room?

  15. Yep, so clearly nobody is ever denied abortions anymore.
    Unemployment and homelessness suck. But they’re not only male issues.

    • No but by majority they are male issue more than female issues. denied an abortion, never in my state has a woman been denied an abortion. If these are so bogus you really should see what the feminists call male privileges, being stripped of our rights as father’s that’s a privilege in feminist eyes so basically when men refuse to accept this bullshit and call you out you panic and throw a tantrum. 13 specifically is like Andrea yates she blamed blacks and Hispanics for the cold and torturously slow deaths of her sons. Where was their male privilege? A question you are refusing to answer. Why is that because it doesn’t exist and you know it.

      • No one in your state has been denied an abortion? How do you know this? What is your state? I’m guessing I can find an instance of someone being denied an abortion in your state with a small amount of google searching.

        Since your grammar is so atrocious, I am honestly a little bit confused as to what you are trying to say, but I will attempt to respond. Are you saying that feminists think that men being stripped of their rights as fathers is a privilege? A privilege for who? I’m not totally convinced that you understand what privilege is.

        Also, just to be clear, you are using an example of a seriously deranged woman who killed her children as proof of what? That women are all crazy murderers? That because those children happen to be male, her killing them was an act of anti-male violence? Furthermore, are you trying to argue that any feminist would excuse her actions? Because I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who would think someone who killed her small children was justified in any way.

    • “Since your grammar is so atrocious”

      Maggie, I have to say that I am disappointed in you. I think you make some decent points (although I will argue them), but this kind of petty bullshit almost completely denounces an argument in my books. I believe when people make statements like this, they are trying to make a statement about someone’s intelligence based on something as superficial as language. So, I already have the idea that you are a pretentious, mean and callous. This is the internet, you have no idea who the person behind that computer is or if english is even their first language. So pipe the fuck down and get off your high horse.

      ” Are you saying that feminists think that men being stripped of their rights as fathers is a privilege? A privilege for who? I’m not totally convinced that you understand what privilege is.”

      First, let me define privilege, “A special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to one person or group of people.” If the battle in court is over custody of children, women are usually granted favor in the judicial system based entirely on the fact that they are women and are seen as primarily caregivers, even if the father takes better care of the kids. Even though this is a stereotype of women, it does give them the upper hand in a custody battle. That is why it is a privilege.

      “Unemployment and homelessness suck. But they’re not only male issues.”

      This is true, they are not just male issues. Most of North America’s homeless are male, but we shouldn’t marginalize or ignore the homeless women. That would be wrong, I agree with you. But just for the sake of argument, let’s look at where men tent to be marginalized or ignored. How about we start with domestic violence, where statistics Canada shows that men are physically abused in relationships… although not to the same degree as women in most cases. But Statistics Canada says that men make up a little over 40% of the people who are being slapped, hit or punched by their partner. Who knew!?

      Now, what about rape? Certainly it is seen as mostly an issue of men harming women, and never the other way around. This makes it another issue that marginalizes men or just completely ignores them. The issue affects primarily women, so it makes sense to have the focus be women.

      “No one in your state has been denied an abortion?”

      Actually, men are denied abortions all the time. If they are not ready or didn’t want to have children with someone and it happens anyway, there is little option for men. The easy argument is “well, then don’t have sex”, but the same argument can be used against women who are denied abortions. I believe that women have the right to do whatever they want with their body and the things living in it, a man has no place dictating what goes on there… but, we need to recognize that this is an advantage women have over men. Men have rights to their sperm until it’s inside someone else, then it’s left up to the person carrying the potential babies to make a decision and has the right to have little or no regard for the wishes of their partner. I think this right is a privilege, because men simply cannot have this right because they don’t have a uterus. Unfortunately, not all women in this world are sane or make good decisions. With this privilege can come abuse, I think that’s what she is talking about.

      That’s all I have to say about that. If you have anything to say about my grammar or my general intelligence, please go fuck yourself. If you have something to say about the points I’ve made, I’m all ears (or eyes).

      • Ever watch the news how the women kid their babies over crazy reasons? Pretty fucked up, right?

      • kill* Sorry, typo. I haven’t slept all day, been reading this topic and it just all wrong.

    • Well domestic violence isn’t a female only issue, but by God, it’s sure TREATED like it is.

      • This is the only comment I’ve read that I completely agree with. Many times there is so much shame for a man in admitting he has been abused that they suffer silently. Part of this is true because of social stigmas we place on men to be strong.

        Something must be done to raise awareness that both men and women can be batterers and that its not okay.

  16. I actually Maggie I do recall manboobz justified her actions AS THE HUSBANDS FUALT among others of his brood. As for grammar sorry I am tired as of late. I’m just saying men are tired of being told they have things they actually don’t. men are SICK OF BEING CALLED RAPISTS WHEN WE AREN’T! So are you ever going to answer my question, or just keep up your logical fallacy?

    • Who is manboobz? I have no idea what you are talking about.

      I agree that false accusations of rape are terrible, but they are also much more rare than you seem to think. So yeah, when someone is accused of rape, I’m gonna give the benefit of the doubt to the less privileged person who likely doesn’t have as much reason to lie about the situation.

      What was your question? I thought I responded to all of your questions, but if there is something you asked that I didn’t answer, please remind me what it is and I will try to answer it to the best of my ability.

      • I am not a fan of trumping up false rape charges I am not a fan of down playing them, actually. I am of the mind that 9% is 9% to many, how many real victims get the shaft because one person lies about rape? Manboobz is a male feminist, that excuses misandry. Also you have never answered any of my questions you’ve dodged them yes but that’s not an answer.

  17. False rape charges are horrible. I don’t think anyone is arguing that they’re not. I’m just saying, charges of rape shouldn’t be taken lightly or dismissed until there has been a thorough investigation.

    If you have questions that you feel I haven’t answered adequately, please ask them. I don’t know what questions you are referring to.

    • Okay fine where is the male privilege for the all the men who died in war, or the little boys that got murdered by their mothers, or the men who are killed because a woman lied about rape? If these privileges are so bogus then I think male privileges are equally bogus. Tell me do you think rape cases should be kept away from the media, and false rape accusers should face criminal charges?

      • Okay fine where is the male privilege for the all the men who died in war, or the little boys that got murdered by their mothers, or the men who are killed because a woman lied about rape?

        OK, so, male privilege is an inherent thing–it doesn’t get negated because you happen to have shitty things happen to you in your life. All of those people still had male privilege, it just wasn’t relevant to their particular situations. It seems like you’re arguing that if a man is killed, it’s a misandrist act, which doesn’t make sense at all.

        Tell me do you think rape cases should be kept away from the media, and false rape accusers should face criminal charges?

        I do not think the media has any business getting involved in most rape cases, unless the people involved in the case specifically want the media involved. And yes, I think that if it comes to light that someone falsely accused someone of rape, and this is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, then yes, I believe that they should have to face criminal charges. In fact, I think that there is a case for slander there.

    • “False rape charges are horrible. I don’t think anyone is arguing that they’re not. I’m just saying, charges of rape shouldn’t be taken lightly or dismissed until there has been a thorough investigation.”

      There were multiple women in their 30s and 40s that had sex with me in my mid teens. Why can’t I play the victim? Why is it only women in their mid teens that are seen as victims? I’ll tell you why, sweet pea. Women are taught to be victims. Women are taught to blame everything on men. Women are taught to be vultures, mercenaries and parasites. And all the while, women demand protection and respect from…guess what…men. Do you see the irony?

      • Wow, you had some bad things happen to you. Listen up ‘sweet pea’ anecdotes are not evidence, generalising your experience as the norm has evidence and statistics against you. I demand respect where it’s due, as should anyone of either gender, I also respect, where due. Two way street ‘sweet pea’.

      • You demand respect even as you disrespect men and yourself by peddling your mother’s whore lies which objectified you.

        It’s not respectful to misrepresent [doing what you want to do] as a favour to elicit men’s suffering in exchange. It’s evil. You’re evil. When you stop being evil and start respecting yourself, you will be respected.

        Or you can keep telling yourself that you’re not a whore. Whores will never be respected. Your mother lied to you.

    • If ladies care so much about what false rape charges do to their sons, I want to see protestors. I want to see women, mothers, sisters, wives, daughters in the streets, holding up signs, demanding for change. Demanding that their innocents sons be completely exempt from any and all consequences and that the people who falsely accused them be put on charges.

      Is that going to happen with this insane perspective on male privilege??

      I don’t think so.

  18. Actually I believe false rape falls into a fraud category, as for murder I think all murder is a hate crime. Male privilege doesn’t exist I’ve read the list that most feminists write and its sickening at best and most often misinformed lies. Men do more than 8 hours of work in an 8 hour day women do 7.75 hours of work in an 8 hour day, as such a wage gap is not a result of privileges. Also if males have privilege than this list is perfectly true also, you can’t say this list is bullshit when most of the things do happen for women. Women gain fortunes and status through divorce, a biased court system that favors women because they are women is a privilege. I just wished you would have answered those question when I first asked them.

    • Who declares, has declared, and – as long as patriarchy persists –
      will continue to declare War?

      It begins with M.

      • Well since there is no “Patriarchy by your…ahem…logic this war was over before it started.
        Who the Hell do you think EMANCIPATED women in the FIRST place? Huh?
        IT WAS MEN! This same “patriarchy” that is said to opress women voted FOR WOMEN’S equality. A “patriarchy would vote AGAINST women’s rights, you big bucket heads!
        Gol, use at least SOME since, will ya?

  19. Clearly, nothing I say to you is going to make you change your mind, and I have other things I need to do.

    But maybe you should try educating yourself about privilege before you start making broad claims.
    Start with Peggy McIntosh’s “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack”
    And then read this piece: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/05/15/straight-white-male-the-lowest-difficulty-setting-there-is/

    It’s a really excellent article that describes male privilege in a very easy to understand way.

    If you read those and are still confused, then maybe I’ll talk to you again. But I’m tired to going around in circles when you’re clearly in your own little world.

    • You are the dumbest shill on the net. Men have throughout time praised and protected women. You’re an indoctrinated shill of the feminist left with no mind of your own. Go sell your screed to those men that haven’t yet awoken. Men with half a brain see straight through your shill talk, witch.

    • All you have done so far in this forum, is marginalize men. How do you expect to make any headway, when you are so closed minded to the other side? Men all over N America have bent over backwards to help women in their struggles, and all you can do is stand there and expect princess treatment, while spitting on men, treating us like servants.

    • Incorrect. Low difficulty settings generate lower points in a game. So his comparison fails. If white males are playing the easy setting, they’d score less points.

      Scalzi is a textbook gamma male little bitch.

  20. You seem to be missing a clear and easy point I’ve spelled out for you a few times. Female privileges exist and sometimes void male privilege. Also not all men are given this privileges in life, men are marginalized in our education system which is continuing to fail everyone. If you empower men to have a real chance at life and not be hindered by privileges, that only work if we meet a said requirement in society. What makes you think I’m white and I will say this for white men they are hated for no reason half the time, why because people are projecting what they think white people are, or aren’t.

    • Lol. Educate yourself. Then we can talk.

      • Maggie you keep generalizing men as the upper elites of society which some men are, as for the rest we are nothing but cogs or pawns to be sent first for another’s power. You have failed too see the negatives of privilege, men who are abused by women have the privilege of being mocked. Its a really pity your too biter to see beyond what others have told you.

      • “Lol. Educate yourself. Then we can talk.”

        I really dislike people like yourself who argue with such a pretentious attitude because it leaves no room for discussion. You contradict yourself when you say we should not ignore homeless women just because they are a small percentage… but then we shouldn’t make a big deal about false rape charges because it affects a small percentage of men? It’s still damaging, with potential to ruin the lives of a small percentage of men and gives REAL victims of rape a bad name. So, people who falsely accuse and/or convict men of rape SHOULD be convicted for perversion of the justice system, a story which should get a lot of media hype AND INCLUDE a public apology to try to clear a name that has now been heavily tarnished.

        How do you not see this as an issue that needs to be addressed?
        You argue a double-standard… AND HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL SOMEONE UNEDUCATED! You are unbelievable. Do you have no capacity for critical thought or analysis? You can read all the one-sided articles you want, post them all over the internet if it will make you feel intelligent. You can have great spelling and grammar… and even insult people who don’t if it’ll help you feel good about yourself. But I see through that. Female and male privilege can both exist. They can be mutually inclusive or exclusive, depending on what it is.

      • “Educate yourself” is the textbook bleat of the femorrhoid. It avoids any intellectual debate by insisting a male agree with a vagina, or else. It’s is anti-logical.

  21. Seriously, I don’t even know what you’re talking about, dude. Sure, some men have it worse than some women. Does that negate male privilege as a concept? Absolutely not. Now seriously, read the link I posted, because I’m tired of listening to your ignorant ranting.

  22. The only ignorant ranting is coming from you if you wish for it to stop shut off you computer and go read a book like the myth of male power, or the war against men and boys. Lay off the SCUM for once in your sad fallacy of a life.

    • Your insults are cute, but they’re doing nothing to prove you’re not a misogynist douchebag.

      Also, the Myth of Male Power doesn’t blame women for the so-called “plight” of men. So, it’s at least a little more tolerable to read than this checklist.

      • I never said women were to blame, so don’t put words in my mouth. As for your insults I can’t say much good about them, they aren’t original they lack whit and tact. I feel more sad for you than anything else.

      • But in the real world of equality YOUR insult make YOU a Misandrist.
        Oh wait I forgot. this ISN’T the real world of equality. When men argue with women they’re MISOGYNISTS picking on the poor helpless girl, but when women argue with men they’re She-warriors for women, or some other dopey self-appointment.

  23. Cool story, bro.

    • Saw it coming, well at least I’m rating up your comments that should make you feel better.

      • Yep, that’s the only thing I want in life, clearly.

  24. you certainly want my attention

    • Obviously.

      In all seriousness though, I have a ton of work I need to get done and I don’t feel like talking to someone who clearly has no idea what they’re talking about. If you read some things and educate yourself, I’d be happy to talk to you in the future. Otherwise, enjoy living in a fantasy world where men are a disadvantaged group.

      • Thanks but your sources of education are blogs. While you are happy with self entitled morons that can’t help but ignore the facts their opinions are biased and unfounded, I prefer books by scholars and people with degrees. Good luck to you, I mean seriously get a life and stop being such a self entitled bitch.

  25. Want some books?

    Try Conquest by Andrea Smith, White Male Privilege by Mark Steven Rosenkranz, White Privilege and Male Privilege by Peggy McIntosh, Feminism: A Beginner’s Guide (since you clearly don’t know what feminism is) by Sally J. Scholz, He’s a Stud, She’s a Slut by Jessica Valenti…I could go on, but I doubt you’ll read any of my recommendations.

    As for me, thanks for telling me to get a life. I actually am a feminist scholar so this kinda fits in with my life. Thanks though.

    ps. Insulting strangers on the Internet totally proves your self-worth. (/sarcasm)

    • The only person throwing insults was actually you all I did was return them. As for Jessica Valenti I read her books they are total crap hell she thinks men should be held in jail as guilty until proven innocent, way to be about equality stereotyping all rapists and sex offenders as men. I read most of those books all they are is carefully written stereotypes of men, as for my race really why do you think I’m white hell do you not see my avatar picture?

      • I never said anything about your race, but race plays into privilege to the extent that you can’t really talk about one without talking about the other, which is why some of those books talk about race as well as gender.
        I have never read anywhere where Jessica Valenti said that about holding men in jail as guilty until proven innocent…I’m pretty sure that’s not something she ever said. If you can give me a specific quote from her, then maybe I’ll believe you.
        Also, I have been consistently civil and not once called you any sort of derogatory term, which is more than I can say for you.

    • R u educated?

  26. Maggie all the you’ve been spouting off about is white or male privilege. I believe that the former exists since about only 10-15% of the military is white but are very high as well. I mean seriously I once hated white people for their privilege but that’s just ignorant the way you hate men their “privileges”. Whites can’t help their privilege and many don’t even have a way to use it. As for Jessica maybe you should dig into the stuff she’s posted online.

    • When did I say I hated men? I love men, especially men who recognize their privilege.

      Do you seriously think all feminists hate men? Or that just because I recognize that men have privilege, that means that I hate them? That couldn’t be further from the truth.

      • Right you love men; while almost every thing feminists have to say about men is unfounded and vitriol. I stopped being a feminist along time ago because I got sick of having to listen to all rapists/murders/child molesters are men and how useless we are to society as a whole. I also never male privilege doesn’t exist I just said most the things called privileges are bogus.

      • Any one remember that book, “Women can’t hear what men don’t say”?
        Well evidently they can’t hear what MEN do say, either.
        Yeah, love is blind. But HATE is deaf, dumb AND blind.

  27. OK, well I don’t appreciate the generalizations about feminists that you are making. I for one do not share those views and do not think all men are rapists and whatnot. The people who think that do not represent the majority of feminists, just a loud minority.

    • Well I am sorry to generalize although I’m merely using past experiences to draw my conclusion.

    • Maggie, how would you like to debate me on debate.org.

      You can bring anecdotes and I’ll bring nothing but empirical evidence and whilst you quote mine from gender studies written books that can be picked apart with even the slightest hint of critically applied thinking,

      I’ll remove emotion from the argument and cite studies. Not studies on domestic violence where feminists have rang the home between the hours of 9-3 in order to only get females and then cite these results as inhonesto congruens.

      Not some studies on wage gaps where the feminists “assigned” their own values to the fact that men ask for pay raises more, because men are more likely to have to support a family and are under the added pressure that lack of income can lead to divorce for MAN. Or factoring “OUT” that men do more unpaid overtime, so as to seem like paid hours are equal. (yeah they do that to).

      In fact find me one study that either doesn’t work on aggregates or doesn’t bullshit factor away important variables? (Don’t worry, you won’t – They don’t exists).

      Also, opinion sites don’t count as proof (unless you’re a feminist).

      Heck, I’ll even argue any of the points on this list which raise qualifiers like “may” and “can”.

      I’ll even put money on it, if that’s what it will take to thoroughly and convincingly prove that feminism rests on 40 years of unchallenged gender studies opinions, which have been so omnipresent and ubiquitously hammered into gullible subconscious’s, having resulted in typical feminist arguments which are rich on rhetoric and shameful “go educate yourself” type remarks, but very little actual proof.

      Ironically for those who scream the loudest, feminism’s lack of actual, real EMPIRICAL evidence is rather easy to completely destroy one on one.

      So here stands my offer. Debate dot org. Anytime.

      Loser creates blog devoted to winners arguments.

      Fuck it, I’ll even throw in a hundred bucks if you can beat me.

      Any time now?

      • Actually, that sounds like fun, but I’m in the middle of writing my undergrad thesis right now. Can we take a rain check? I’d actually have a lot of fun kicking your ass and winning 100 bucks, but I’m totally swamped right now. Soon, OK?

      • aka she won’t

      • lol she totally copped out. soo busy with her undergrad that she’s trolling this blog constantly. yaritegood1maggie. now git.

  28. Nice list. I’m going to admit as a woman some of those things on the list are either total bogus, nut 100% true, or can be justified to an extent. For example the marketing stuff and clothing is a result of equal pressures on both men and woman.

    Men are pressured to avoid girly things because society views woman to be weak. As a result men going for woman’s clothing or hobbies will actually make them view men as trying to lower their social status. The larger variety of clothing and all that jewlrey is provided for a woman at a price. The media pressures woman to be like this “trophy figure model” so woman feel the need to look good just for men.

    This causes both men and woman to be denied rights.

    However, a large portion of what you said is not only true but hurts feminism (the kind that wants equal rights not the kind that wants men oppression) because it implies woman to be weak and helpless, and this results in woman loosing rights. That thing about false accusations of rape reminded me about something I learned. All the false accusations of rape actually make police not take the REAL accusations of woman being raped seriously and soon will result in a man being able to rape a woman and get away with it.

    It also hurts when feminists fight for something that actually is oppression for a woman and is an issue woman have to face because most people brush it off as the feminists are just being bitches or that woman are spoiled.

    Yah both men and woman are denied rights but unless feminists and masculists can join forces and stop trying to oppress the other gender, and stop trying to diss the other party, equal rights will never occur and its only going to get worse for both men and woman.

  29. Hey “man”–I am actually really interested in doing this–I enjoy a nice debate, and I have, you know, logic and facts on my side, so I’d actually find this quite entertaining. But I’ve got way more important shit to do right now. If this guy can wait, I’d be into it. If not, no big deal. I just can’t focus a lot of my energy on something that isn’t my thesis right now. Sorry.

    • Also how are you Maggie guess what this professor claims I’m harassing her because I have sent her multiple emails asking her to clarify her assignment instructions!

      • I’m good! That’s too bad, did she ever clarify the instructions? =P

        ps. I’m really happy we were able to have different opinions on the internet and end up at least finding a bit of common ground.

  30. Maggie is a nice person “man” she isn’t completely right nor is she completely wrong.

    • more like a backpeddling troll. but maybe she’s less abrasive in person

  31. This guy doesn’t know me in person, he’s actually the person I was just arguing with in the comments. I think we made peace =) He actually seems pretty cool. So, you know, it is possible to have a dispute on the internet and still remain civil.

    • cool a men’s center it would be nice if only the feminists on my campus would grow up and stop seeing things as black and white.

      • Yeah, we have a men’s center and a women’s center, and they tend to do things together. We had a discussion about rape culture last week that was co-sponsored by both centers, and it was excellent. Really interesting and informative.

    • http://factsforequality.wordpress.com/ well I honestly don’t think the theory of rape culture is to sound since I remember as a boy being told not to touch girls unless they want you too, but check out my blog here I plan on covering the rape culture’s sound and unfounded theories

      • Rape culture isn’t so much about the idea that boys are encouraged to rape people or anything like that. It’s much more subtle than that. It’s more like, when people say stuff like “she was asking for it” when someone was raped, or the trivializing of sexual assault…stuff like that. It’s not something that happens everywhere and in every situation, but it is a cultural theme.

  32. Anon, sorry for having things to do outside of the internet? I guess?

    • I’ve been okay I had a change of professor and other than that I am about to finish one course this week. but its never easy college and I wish we had a men’s center

      • We have a men’s center at my college! It’s pretty awesome =)

    • My coverage of rape culture is more like apologist culture rape, child molestation its more like what I call an apologist culture depending on the right setting.

      • I’m not entirely sure I understand what you’re trying to say, but I want to! Can you clarify?

    • apologists basically justify rape or some form of abuse. Manboobz justified women molesting teenage boys, so that makes him a child molestation apologist. When someone blames the victim of rape that is basically a rape apologist. We don’t have just a rape culture, our issues are much worse than “rape culture” lets on. We excuse rape domestic violence, child abuse, the list goes on.

      • Oh, OK. I completely agree with that. I think your wording was just a bit confusing before =P

        I do agree, we as a culture have a problem with victim blaming, whether we are blaming women, men, or children. Some of it fits into rape culture, but it’s much bigger than that.

  33. As usual feminist come to an MRA site fueled up on vitriol based on repetitive confirmation bias and liberal heapings of Argumentum ad nauseam.

    Unfortunately when push comes to shove and it takes EMIRICAL evidence to prove an argument…they don’t have any.

    I know, because I spend a lot of time checking their sources and facepalming at people who cite the mere opinions of bigots, halfwits and clearly, obviously, axiomatically biased gender idealogues.

    Proof is not just a gender professor spouting their uncontested opinions to a class of indoctrinated young children. Proof is not a study that manipulates factors or omits prudent details.

    Proof is the result of proving.

    I’m yet to see the gender studies set prove much of anything.

    The largest study ever conducted (EVER) shows women commit domestic violence at even or greater rates than men.

    The founder of the first women’s shelters started to notice around half the women coming in were violent themselves and were starting the fights they founds themselves in.

    When she started to speak out, feminists killed her dog and sent her death threats.

    Feminists actually try to argue there is a rape culture. You know rape, the most abhorred crime behind only child abuse as the most loathed. Rapists are treated with disgust, hate, ostracism and utter proscription from society.

    You know rape that is empirically proven to occur in 0.03% of America?

    Yeah, somehow feminism’s most brilliant minds have managed to come together and extrapolate that what we don’t know and can’t prove is that rape is 100 times more prevalent than the actual proof.

    Because they say so…and their word is clearly beyond reproach.

    Oh, and they claim rape is accepted in society and rape jokes are prevalent and rape is everywhere you look. So, you know, kinda the opposite of reality.

    Feminists also try and claim a wage gap. Because men work longer hours and earn more. So they try to say men and women in the same job earn different wages. So you tell them men and women in the same job work different hours, then they get angry with you for not accepting their oft repeated, but little proven ramblings.

    So you say hey Mrs, sorry, Miss Feminist – Where is the proof that men and women doing the same job earn differing amounts for the same job?
    Then they provide the same old women’s studies study

    I mean, you can’t make this shit up, unlike them, who in turn make so much shit up it’s hilarious.

    They factor out things like men working more unpaid overtime, or more aggressively negotiating starting salaries.

    Funnily enough when you ask them to publish the differences in pay rates between women, what, who, what???

    Yeah, because women in the same jobs don’t get paid the same as each other either…go figure?

    Strangely, feminists are silent on the fact that the broke women seem to come up with the cash for 75% of the worlds personal luxury purchases.

    Whadyamean, are these women all stealing money from somewhere?

    Feminists try and point to a few male politicians and call patriarchy. They say there need to be more female politicians so that their voices are heard.

    You know…those voices of the female voting majority. The female voting majority that enjoys paying 36% of taxes but consuming 70% of welfare benefits. Oppression?

    The female voting majority that lives 7 years longer than men?

    The female voting majority that has double the money spent on their health concerns…not enough?

    The female voting majority that ensure women gain control of their kids in divorce. Oppression?

    The female voting majority that ensures women don’t have to sign up for selective services to vote, though men do.

    The female voting majority that in the UK means they can retire five years earlier than men.

    Problem is there is not a single law – Not one the gives men any advantages. None. Nilch. Not one single inkling that there is a patriarchy giving men more advantages.

    BUT there are documented legal advantages women receive.

    How can that possibly happen in a patriarchy?

    How much more work would feminists like men to do, in order to pay more tax to fund more set in stone legal advantages to women?

    How many dead men littering the pavements will be enough for the diamond rings and cartier watches these women scramble to procure.

    Every road you drive on, every bite of food you eat, every piece of technology you use is built on the back of the death of men.

    97% of workplace fatalities.

    Is that enough for feminism?

    • I know how you feel its total bullshit that feminists are so successful as a hate group

      • JD, why do you have the same profile icon as yoursexymaster?? Are you the same person, use the same pic or what? It makes people think you are the same person commenting. Confusing.

      • Yup. JUST like the Nazis. And I mean JUST like the Nazis.

    • Actually, she wasn’t ‘fired up’ in the begining. She was very patient with JD. He was already here with a huge angry chip on his shoulder. He was rude and short tempered right out of the gate. It took an entire page of comments before he could talk civily with her. When either side has an angry defiant posture it makes for an impossible situation for dialog. Men have male priviledge, females have female priviledge , how aboutr laying down the weapons, guys? Does it make it any easier talking to an angry, man hating feminazi when she does nothing but hurt abuse and insults? No! Learn to check your self righteous anger and maybe women will listen to you. Otherwise your just some woman hating, angry dude we avoid.

      • I know you feminist types are delusional but why does it never shock me how far you can take it?

  34. This is just laughable. Many of these complaints are actually issues with the patriarchy, not with feminism.

    This list of grievances is replete with complaints about the gender dichotomy and frustrations with double standards for men and women. That is what feminism is about: removing the gender dichotomy. These complaints are incredibly misguided and misdirected. This list is largely at odds with the patriarchy and the current gender climate. Educate yourself on the cornerstones of feminism before you go attacking it. But that may just be male privilege speaking again, i.e. men blaming women for problems men created.

    • THANK YOU!!!!!

    • Exactly.
      Feminism doesn’t advocate for female superiority. It advocates for gender equality.

      • Oooof course it does.
        Just like the KKK keeps saying it doesn’t hate minorities, then goes on to say how much they hate minorities…!

    • Are you retarded? No-one “created” gender roles/ the disposable males vs child bearing dynamic, it emanates from our fucking biology & quite frankly human biology favours women as the child bearers.

      Isn’t the whole backbone of feminist ideology the fact that men are supposed to be ‘privileged’ & women ‘oppressed’?

      Yet as soon as you realise men suffer many problems it’s suddenly our own fault, while the problems women suffer are the fault of men?

      Then feminists have the nerve to turn around & claim they’re about ‘equality’? So if this were true then why would it matter who creates the problems (even if you are misguided into believing they’re men’s fault), they’re problems none the less right? So shouldn’t you be trying to help men? Nope? Of course not…

      Can’t have it both ways sweetheart, typical brainwashed argument of the feminist, lacking any integrity & honesty.

      The fact that feminism even has a public face & political influence in the first place screams at female privilege, because none of the feminist ideology is based on fact or reason & in turn is also a proud male hate movement.

      Imagine if the genders were reversed, & men made up a bunch of lies to benefit men & then at the same time vilified & suppressed the natural femininity of the female, those men would get nowhere, hell they’d even be seen as cowards. Just like you feminists are,

  35. i have a quick question about #46, could someone please explain exactly how only men experience cognitive dissonance? i never assumed it was affected by a persons gender.

  36. https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/strawman

  37. All of these stem from male privilege and placing women into gender roles. That is not a privilege.

    • That doesn’t make them any less valid or beneficial to women over men.

      • Ehhh, it kinda does though.

    • Riiiight.
      And men are NEVER placed in gender roles, are they?

      *sigh* why do I even bother? As my teacher once told me;, “It is pointless to show light to the blind…”
      I guess you could add; ‘especialy those blinded by hate.’ As they are always blind to the OBVIOUS!

  38. sorry maggie thats bullshit I don’t see how a woman taking more than half a man’s property or getting away with child molestation is harmful to the woman in question. How is it bad that a woman who molests a dozen kids 200 times and get 9 years in prison is harmful to her. How is either of those really bad for the woman and not the victim. I mean you only love men who submit to a conditional demand you want them to meet, and that is pretty bad I mean what if you had a son who denied he was privileged you’d stop loving him, you already said yes to that.

    • I have no idea what you’re talking about but a) You’re putting words in my mouth and b) making really crazy assumptions about my life. Both of which are not OK.

      Obviously child molestation is not OK–I just don’t think you understand that these things that you’re complaining about are caused by patriarchy and male privilege.

      I never said I wouldn’t love my (theoretical) son, I have no idea what you’re talking about. If I had a child, they would be aware of all of the ways that they were privileged, but if they refused to acknowledge them, I would obviously still love them, and I don’t see how that’s relevant…

      • You said you love men so long as they admit they are privileged, so if you had a duaghter you’d tell her how privileged she is too? I see no point in forcing my ideologies on a child, is it healthy for them? I doubt that very much. If men are privileged and its harmful the very same is true for women. Although how is America a patriarchy as a federal republic the voters hold power over who gets in power. Plus the way men’s issues are silenced through threats would say more of a feminazi system is in place.

  39. I’m going to ignore your ignorant accusations of me not loving my future children, as we both know that’s ridiculous.

    If I had a child–no matter their gender–they would be aware of their privilege. My partner and I are both white, so they would have white privilege and they would be able to recognize that. If I had a boy, he would be aware of his male privilege. Almost everyone has privilege of some sort, but “female privilege,” as you are defining it and as it is stated here, does not exist. It’s not a privilege if it’s caused by the patriarchy and serves to benefit men.

    • Maggie you said “I love men, especially men who recognize their privilege.” its on this very page scroll up. I merely I am not accusing you of anything didn’t say. Racial privileges certainly exist, I never said they don’t, but you keep trying to deny female privilege exists.

      • I said “especially” and I was referring to friends and romantic partners, not potential future children. I would (and this should be obvious) love my child no matter what they believed. That is how it works. However, I would never choose to date someone or be close friends with someone who had such differing views on issues that are so important to me. That’s what I meant by that comment, and I assumed (incorrectly, apparently) that you understood.

        And yes. I am denying that female privilege exists, because it doesn’t. If it’s harming women and benefiting men, it’s not female privilege. All of those examples you have given of so-called “female privilege” are really just symptoms of a culture that gives men privilege over women–privilege that, whether you care to acknowledge it or not–exists, and is hurting everybody, regardless of gender.

    • instead of just being aware of your white privilege you should do something about it, like, stopping it maybe?

  40. Maggie everything on this list benefits women and harms men, are you even reading this list what are you talking about!? In anycase your conditional love is abusive to men in general, if they disagree with you they are probably better of dead huh? I swear this is just pathetic I am trying to show a white woman reason. Female privilege is real, when women molest boys they have the privilege of the fact society will say loudly that the boy in question who reported the sexual assault is a “fag” for ratting her out or that he is lucky even if he ends up taking his life.

    • Wow, OK, so I’m not going through this gigantic list of things and telling you why they’re all harmful to both men and women. But like…pick one. They’re basically all caused by the patriarchy. Also, you keep bringing up shit that’s objectively bad and then like…expecting me to defend it? I’m a human being. Obviously I don’t think sexual assault is good, regardless of who is the abuser. But the fact that some women get away with sexual assault (a miniscule percentage of the men that get away with it) doesn’t mean that women have, what? The privilege to assault people? Or that that even is a privilege? I mean, come on.

      Also, I can guarantee you that if the Stubenville case had been two girls raping a guy, there would not have been so much disgusting support for the abusers. And that, right there, is an example of male privilege.

      Also, seriously, you think I want to kill people that don’t agree with me? When did I say that? To be clear, I don’t. That would be horrible. I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion, just not their own facts.

      Please, if you reply to this comment, try to actually read it first and respond to what I’m actually saying as opposed to what you’re assuming about me, because I can assure you that your assumptions are ridiculous and untrue.

      • Stubenville has hundreds in not thousands of outraged groups doing something about it, and there are very questionable things that are in use by the prosecution which is a violation of American justice. I can with 100% certainty tell you if it was a man that got raped well there would probably be a load of idiots calling the girls their hero kind of like the man in Torronto that was kidnapped and raped just recently. Twitter and face book are alive with praise for the three suspect women. I am sorry but if you think this list isn’t beneficial to woman I can’t gauge you to well.

        these two are pretty beneficially to women
        18. At age 18 I will not be forced to register for Selective Service and will not be penalized for failing to do so.

        Now did you know if to this day if a man without a medical disability doesn’t register with Selective Service and registers to vote he can face thousands of dollars in fines and jail time.

        24. I have a department of women’s health whereas men have no such department.

        Men make up the overwhelming amount of uninsured men and women have just recently been given even more health benefits prostate cancer doesn’t even have a quarter of breast cancer research. Hell if I got breast cancer the medical system would probably turn me away for treatment. I honestly thought you’d be smart enough to accept that this list has valid claims, I guess I was wrong. No need to reply to Maggie

  41. OK, but you’re mot realizing that the reason women don’t have to sign up for selective service is because of the sexist ideas that women aren’t able to be in the military. It’s an outdated and unfair practice. Now, I’m in favor of abolishing the selective service altogether, but does it benefit women? On the surface, sure, but that’s completely ignoring the deeper meaning behind it.

    As for the department of women’s health–do you understand vaginas at all? They’re complicated. There are a lot more things that can go wrong that are specific to a woman’s body than a man’s–that’s just true. So, yeah, we get women’s health doctors…I’m glad we do, but it’s not denying health practices to men. If you had breast cancer, you would not be turned away from the medical system, are you serious? This is a ridiculous argument. Women have babies. We kinda need doctors for that shit.

    • I actually lost a friend to breast cancer of all things the thing is the military wouldn’t cover him, in fact he was denied treatment programs that are common to women. I’m not disputing OBGYNs use I am saying you have access to breast cancer treatment options that can help men but we are denied them.

      Now you still think its sexist that you aren’t forced into a legal contract that can result in coming home in bag, well I think its sexist that men are only required for selective service. Its a privilege to vote and not have to serve in the wars of your nation

      • First of all, I’m sorry about your friend. That really sucks, and honestly, I’m not surprised about the military treating him that way. But I am saddened. That’s horrible, and it shouldn’t happen, ever. I don’t see how that benefits women, however. Having our husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, and friends dying is not something that benefits anyone.

        Secondly, you clearly did not read what I said at all. I think the selective service is bullshit. I don’t think ANYONE should have to sign up for it. I’m glad I don’t have to, but it is sexist. It’s sexist because it sees women as less able than men. Luckily for us, the result of that means we don’t have to sign up for the selective service, but it’s still sexism and it’s still a result of a culture that sees men as stronger and more able than women. That is all.

    • What did women do before doctors existed.

      • Usually, they died in childbirth.

  42. Maggie you keep missing the point how is voting without military service anything but a privilege? Women could vote as far back as 1929, yet never served in WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Grenada, and remained in the very safe support and command roles during desert storm. Only 1 woman was taken POW and she got 5 star treatment by the Iraqis, that’s privilege. Hell Jessica Lynch hid until the men in her unit died in combat and was treated like a national hero for it. That is called cowardice not heroism, but she is a pretty little white girl playing soldier so yeah the brass awarded her, but she never turned that award down either which is completely possible. Also a man got turned away for a treatment for breast cancer that is given to women if he got turned away because he was a man that’s much more solid evidence that men have no privilege, than what you are suggesting.

    • “that men have no privilege”

      Are you seriously arguing that men have NO privilege? Because if that’s what you’re trying to say then this is completely pointless.

      Also, none of what you said is wrong, you’re just confused about what I’m saying, which is that sure, certain things seem to be privileges on the surface, but are in fact caused by the patriarchy. I don’t think the argument that sexism–which is the root cause of women not being allowed in the military for so long–is an example of so-called female privilege is a sound one. Sorry, but that’s just completely ridiculous.

      • you are arguing away female privilege on much less, as though it is totally nonexistent by merely saying a benefit is sexism. If you can join the military and let an entire unit fight to the death while you hide and get dubbed a hero, that is a privilege. Personally the bar for women in the military is too.

  43. Right…you clearly have no idea what privilege is, and I don’t have time for this shit. If you develop the capability to understand basic concepts, let me know. Otherwise, have fun with your misconceptions.

    • you are such a good joke to laugh at

    • check your double standards, the day you can honestly sit down say that you don’t consider an ugly guy with bad skin flirting with you “creepy” or “uncomfortable” or “not appropriate for the place” when a hot guy said the exact same thing to you, at the same place, in the same way and that wasn’t any of the things i mentioned. Or the day you get married and directly plainly refuse to take a single copper cent of your husbands money or his paycheck for anything at all in the relationship, regardless of how much you make. Or you stop bitching about women’s rights and start focusing on HUMAN RIGHTS as a thing guaranteed to everyone. Support a law requiring that men have a say in whether or not a pregnancy is aborted or continued (think a guy who doesn’t want a pregnancy but the girl says nooo i won’t have an abortion, and then expects him to pay child support.) Actually vote a female into office as president (yeah you make up 53% of the vote in the united states, more actually in most of the states with larger than 8 electoral votes so saying male privilege in politics is bullshit, women vote those men in.) join the military in equal numbers to men without expectations of separate showers, tents, doctors, uniforms, pregnancy leave, or special treatment for complaints of harassment (guess what there aren’t any for men unless it falls under abuse of command structure), or any other non-standard regulation AND suffer the same number of casualties as men. Vote for, and remove, all laws granting special privileges to women including, but not limited to, the right to vote, gender equality hiring requirements, tax benefits/reductions, unfair laws regarding divorce leaning toward the benefit of women.

      Then, and only then, does any fucking thing you have to say matter even slightly to this discussion.

      So check your privilege? Check your fucking double standard.

      And were that not bad enough feminists and feminist supporters are the biggest hypocrites in the world since they demand fair wages for women for example, but blithely ignore the plight of workers in the sweatshops making their gucci-faberge-silk-designer-random bullshit that makes it fashionable-purse. You want equal rights? then stop supporting your group while ignoring all the others that are important.

    • I tell you, Maggie. One of these days you’re gonna go to FAR.
      And when you do, I hope you STAY there.

  44. Where’s the one about screaming ” check your privilege !” Every time their argument falls to pieces ?

  45. Cedric/maggie http://factsforequality.wordpress.com/2013/05/26/patriarchy-feminisms-conspiracy-theory/ this one is for you and your tin foil life style. As for the hats you are not protecting your brain your actually cooking it like a potato.

  46. They will debunk your list by saying that is the patriarchal system’s fault anyway and they actually call this “benevolent sexism”.

  47. Holy fuck, the lack of simple logic in this list amazes me. Complete disregard of economics, poverty, and class issues. Sweeping generalizations about the motives of women and what they apparently think about very specific situations (women’s gyms? Darfur? Are you fucking serious?).

    “12. When I search for employment I can choose jobs which I think are fulfilling without concern of whether they provide a “family” wage.”

    – talk to literally any single mother (or low income family where both partners are working). Single men also have this “privilege”.

    “10. People will help me more when I’m in need and I will receive no social penalty or stigma for it.”

    – elections have been won on the point of degrading single mothers on welfare or social assistance – no stigma my ass.

    “15. If I commit a crime and am convicted I will get a sentencing “discount” because of my gender. If I am very pretty it will increase my discount.”

    – tell that to Jodi Arias

    “26. My gender consumes the lioness’ share of entitlement programs while men contribute the lion’s share of taxes.”

    – hmmm, extend this a little further…who uses entitlement programs?People in poverty. Who contributes tax money? People who actually make money. Thanks for the privilege of poverty and reliance on social assistance! So sorry you have the burden of making enough money to contribute taxes. Though many MRAs, MGTOW or whatever-the-fuck you call yourselves seem to be ardent libertarians and Ayn Randians, so the idea of any kind of social programming is anathema.

    “43. In the event of a natural disaster or other emergency that requires evacuation I can expect to be evacuated before males. This includes male doctors, humanitarians, politicians, captains of industry, billionaires, and religious leaders. I will receive no social penalty if all of those people died because I was evacuated first. However, should they manage to get evacuated before women and those women died they will all suffer a social penalty.”

    – what kind of hypothetical bullshit world are you living in? Do you really think that “captains of industry” (I burst out laughing at that fucking phrase) or billionaires would be left behind in order to save a bunch of middle or working class females?! Get real! Please, give me real life examples of this happening (enough examples to prove that it is a systemic issue). So many industry captains and politicians left hanging during Hurricane Katrina, eh?

    “36. I can wear masculine clothing if it pleases me however men cannot wear feminine clothing without social penalty.”

    – who enforces this double standard? I don’t think it just women – transphobia runs deeps in both genders. And do you really think women/girls who wear masculine clothing aren’t stigmatized in some way?

    “79. I believe I have a right to live in an orderly and safe society but I feel no obligation to risk my safety to secure or maintain that society.”

    – uhh, female police officers? Do nurses, doctors, social workers and teachers not help “maintain” society? Or is this another jab at how women are not forced into military service?

    I could go on and on and on. Seriously, I’ve seen better argumentation from 10th grade essays.

    • 26. I have issue with social programs so long as everyone regardless of gender can use them. Largely men do not have any domestic violence shelter programs to aid them when they are victims of women, and the fact the police will largely arrest male victims makes reporting abuse a catch 22, who do you want to abuse you wife or the cops?

      Jodi Arias- committed a crime that would land a man the death penalty she only got life seriously, that is a lame argument. Hell she even begged for life after claiming to want death. Her crime is wroth of death but no she got life after asking for life. Seriously she asked for life and just got it.

      I could go on but I know your only response will be “fuck you” in an overly worded passive aggressive manner.

      • Ok, let’s talk about the domestic abuse thing, cause this one is interesting. I agree, domestic violence against men is an issue and there’s a large stigma around it – but who has created this stigma? Why is that men don’t report it? Does it have something to do with traditional notions of masculinity (the whole idea of “boys don’t cry” and what have you)? Cause that’s not something that females have created or enforced on their own.

        And the police are more likely to arrest the man? Are not the majority of police men? That’s man on man crime! Or is the shadowy board of feminist oligarchs declaring from on-high that all men must be arrested in domestic disturbance cases? ….no. It’s due to a (false) societal notion that men are always the perpetrators of physical abuse that is held by many of BOTH genders.

        Jodi Arias – yeah, that was a weak one. Just saying, women do not get off scott free in criminal cases – lots have been put to death even. Don’t make sweeping generalizations about a subject and expect me to take it as hard fact.

        When it comes to the criminal justice system, I’m a little more concerned that majority of those incarcerated are poor people of colour. How about that for some injustice.

  48. Jodi Aris committed 1st degree murder, and got life of all things she murdered a man so brutally that I can’t come up with a proper description of the crime beyond sadistic. She got off easy hell she has the nerve to post on twitter that the judge was unfair. You want to know something about male DV. In my state there are 100 places for men to go, but there are 350 shelters for women in my tri-state area. Thats unjust to have 3 times as many shelters in a county. As for feminists you’d be surprised at some of the double standard I can’t link you in a comment but BBC feminist talk show stated that most male DV victims are in fact perpetrators. Not to mention feminists are one of the largest lobbyist groups for liberals. I never accused feminists of doing it directly although they do help spread misinformation of domestic violence. I can’t seem to link you in a comment so I’ll tell you where you can find this go to tumblr and search for permutationofninjas. They maybe a blog on tumblr but they are very professional.

  49. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own
    blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what
    you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!

  50. So glad I’m homosexual!

  51. What a load of whining crap.

  52. I am a man. And this list is beyond idiotic. It’s filled with so many factual inaccuracies (i.e., a blatant misunderstanding of federal law as well as common state law) that it isn’t even worth dissecting piece by piece. It’s the deep-rooted misogyny in the men who believe what lists like this spew that create the conditions we have today that requires a strong feminist movement and the dissolution of male privilege that has permeated human history.

  53. I would just like to point out: number 3. I can produce offspring. A status which grants me an “essential” status in our species that men can never have and which can never be taken away from me even in old age. *once women reach menopause, their periods stop and they aren’t able to produce eggs to make babies. please check your information before you write a list of crap.

    • Menopause?
      That’s NATURE, my friend! NOT “patriarchy.” Do NOT bring THAT s#!t in here! Take it up with your creator(if one even exists) not the male gender.
      It is no HUMAN’S fault, women go through menopause! female OR MALE.

  54. Seriously just choke on vomit and die you sack of shit.

  55. 2. If I’m not smart, but pretty, I can marry and achieve the social and financial level of my husband without ever working.

    #2 is as idiotic as everything else on that list.

  56. any fact checks can show you that women pay higher sentancing for crimes. and marrying a man to achieve his social and financial status is what feminist are fighting against
    this site sounds like it was written by a guy who couldn’t get laid and refused to pay for it

    • HOLY F#@K! You have GOT to be KIDDING!!!

      “WOMEN pay higher sentancing for crimes”?

      Look again, dumb @$$. Yeah there are FAR more women on death row than men. (just ONE instance) I can not believe the number of people (Mostly feminists) so BLIND to simple, SIMPLE reallity.

      Jeeze. Don’t smoke crack before posting here, will ya?

  57. This list is just a mind game. You seem to be asking women to acknowledge receipt of a lump sum: (1) all of what feminists fight for (like they ever get it) PLUS (2) what the upper 1% of women USED to get (all that leisure time in exchange for reproductive servitude!… working class women got the servitude *without* the leisure time–newsflash–from agriculture to the industrial revolution, women have ALWAYS had to work). Lots of bitter old men think women already won the battle for reproductive rights, and against sexual harassment … fine, let ‘em … but only a self-loathing beta-male joffer gets angry at a few Waspy women in push-up bras climbing the corporate wedding ladder. Those TV gold-diggers you vilify are what those utterly ridiculous men WANT. But it’s pure hatred, plain and simple, mixed with some historical out-of-touch-ness that has you thinking this is an actual thing that women in general “get to do.” You sound like someone who has never had a conversation with a woman without peeing his pants. As for the rest of women (read some goddamned statistics!): you want them to pay for the cheap linguine and a movie ticket, renounce chivarly, and to be culpable for their own violence? And then you’ll treat them like actual human beings? I’ve never met a feminist who wouldn’t take that deal.

    Read an article or two. Do women do 70% of the world’s work or just 62%? It ain’t 49%, that’s for sure. Do women own 1% of the world’s property or is it as much as 11%? I don’t know. Bottom line: Women do more work and men get more stuff. Unless you don’t like economics and math, nothing on your list matters as long as that’s true.

    • “Women do more work and men get more stuff”

      That’s patently untrue and I suspect you know it.

      Women simply do not do more work, there is no evidence to prove this. There is a massive amount of evidence to support the FACT that men work longer hours.

      Women spend more and are the majority of consumers of almost all products, services and luxury goods, but I take it you’ve been to a mall or seen an advertisement?

  58. The male privilege checklist is based on research and statistics. This checklist was the most hateful, sexist, and uneducated rant I’ve ever read. Most of his points are inadvertently arguing against his own cause. “Seven times as much jewelry will be purchased by or for me than by or for men.” Yes, because there’s more social pressure put on women pertaining to their physical appearance, which is in the male privilege checklist. An intelligent way for him to word it would be “I can wear jewelry without the fear of being discriminated against or having people make assumptions about my sexuality.” … “I can cry and get my husband to do something for me that he might not have done otherwise.” wtf did Rush Limbaugh write this? It’s like a list a middle school bully would write. “Women have periods gross, women cry a lot because I see it in movies, also I don’t understand women or Darfur so they’re probably related.” I half-expected one of his points to be “I have the right to cheat on the the author with his best friend WHY KAREN WHY”

  59. This is fucking stupid. I’m not surprised that men support and defend this, especially ones that call themselves “MRAs”; but I feel sorry for women that support this. Internalised misogyny is so rampant, and I feel sad that these women (even unknowingly) are supporting people who are intent on oppressing marginalised groups.

    PS, take your Men’s Rights, and shove them up your dicks.

  60. It’s so funny because all those “privileges” about women not having to sign up for selective service or not being on the front lines of the war were decisions made by MEN. FUCKING MEN SO SHUT THE FUCK UP

    • Hmm. Well then by your logic if a black man kills another black man, it’s not murder.
      Then I guess to further the thought if a woman kills another woman it’s not murder.
      Injustice is injustice no matter who is acting unjust to whom. MORRON!

  61. A few more:

    * I can openly lust over younger male celebrities or fictional characters of almost any age without being labeled “creepy” or “a pedophile.”

    * I can attend preschool and elementary school and expect it to be filled with adult role models of my own gender, who will consciously or unconsciously give me special treatment that results in a decade-long educational advantage for my gender.

    * If I wish to get a job in the early childhood education field, I can do so without being automatically suspected of being a pedophile. Once there, I am unlikely to lose my job on suspicions of pedophiliac behavior.

    * If I do engage in sexual activity with a minor child male, even if he’s a student of mine, I can expect lighter treatment by the criminal justice system and may even escape the sex offender registry.

    * (mainly Asia-specific) I can demand train cars allocated for my gender, thus having my ride in a more comfortable, less-crowded space subsidized by males.

    * (mainly Asia-specific again) If I do decide to ride in mixed-gender train cars, I can levy mistaken or false accusations of molestation against men for fun and profit, since my story will be instantly believed by the authorities without question

    • Those are some great additions to the list.

      But, according to some, those are all consequences of male dominance and privilege. Yeah, we want to go through hell. lol

  62. Well this was clearly some shit written by someone who lacks a number of chromosomes. What I enjoyed most was how personal many of the items on the list were, as though they were trying to work out personal issues: “28. When I divorce my husband I will be guaranteed custody of my children unless I am deemed to be unfit. Even if my husband is “Parent of the Year” 10 years running it is unlikely he will get custody over me even if I am a mediocre parent.”

    In the future, it may be nice to use spell check or at least proof read it. 8/10 troll factor.

  63. You’re not accounting for the fact that a woman might not want to do half those things. She might want to be the breadwinner or have a more dangerous position in the army, but she won’t have that choice. This is why feminism is so important. It’s to reduce the privileges in both male and female lists.

    Btw, are you resentful because she divorced you? You probably shouldn’t be such an open book when talking about a political issue.

    • Priya.
      I wish that were, truly the case. Un-fortunatly, it isn’t.
      Even if the so-called bad feminists are a minority, they are a minority with nearly un-limited power and a lot of clout. They have indeed become that which they CLAIM to oppose.
      Yes they may want to reduce the “male privilage” list, but they also want to increase the “female privilage” list.
      All one has to do is listen to their rhetoric, and see the laws and statutes they have gotten passed with the help of wussie-poopie males who think it will help them get laid. These feminists CONSTANTLY preach “equality” while at the same time claim superiority. Anyone who cannot see this PLAINLY is intentionally blind.

    • What a patently idiotic argument. If a man does not want to be a breadwinner he’s called a lazy bum or irresponsible man child or some such crap. Shaming tactics. If he doesn’t want to have a more dangerous position in the army he’s branded a coward. That is why masculinism is so important, because of this pathological one sided gynocentric view. It’s about giving women choices and maintaining male obligations. As an aside the arguments that Maggie presented regarding the draft are more of the same lunacy.

    • Let me make this clear for you, because it seems to be impossible for most feminists to understand this. If women decide to work to support her family, that doesn’t automatically make her ruler of the castle. HOWEVER, feminists would have you believe that men must chip in and help their breadwinner wives or else, they’re no good, they’re worthless or they’re patriarchal misogynists. I’ve heard stories of women as far back as the early 1900s actually running their own businesses and then, coming home to serve and take care of their families, including their husbands (deadbeats by today’s standards). Did they have to? Did the husband have a gun to her head?? NO. She did all of that, because she loved and cherished her family.

      Men are seeing less and less of that incredibly attractive attitude in modern women – who have it much easier than women before the industrial revolution and we’re SICK OF IT.

      Haven’t you ever heard of or seen women gets mad at their husbands for spending more time bringing home the bacon than spending time with their families?? Well, it works both ways.

  64. Ignorance. Read a book.

  65. Women are bat shit crazy. I’ll have nothing to do with them outside of uncommitted, casual sex. To think like a woman is to become criminally insane. I love women. What I hate is that dark, evil side of women. I swear they’re all possessed. What’s worse, any man that gets attached to these emotional vampires finds himself criminally insane, sooner or later. I hate women, but yet I love them. I need help, as do you, dear reader. You must both hate and love the couchie, for the couchie rules you. Oh – I also hate biology.

    • You hate objects. You love women. Most men who are led to believe they hate women actually hate objectified ‘women’.

      Objects are the only true misogynists. Objects hate women _for being women_. Women make objects look bad.

  66. Most women around the world don’t have all those options. It looks like your just talking about highly attractive middle class white women.

    Also if you want to wear feminine clothing, and have flowers in the mens bathroom. Then get on with it. Not all men would consider all the things on this list as a privilege. Do you want to be a woman?

    • Most men would not consider any of the things on the list a privilege because of a combination of feminist brainwashing and chivalrous delusion.

  67. I agree that many of these things are true but many of them are petty and some are opinionated. It also mariginalises women to all think the same. If I was an unfit parent but was to have to pay child support I see no reason why I shouldn’t have to pay the same amount a man has to.

  68. Thanks for your marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it, you happen to
    be a great author. I will make sure to bookmark your blog
    and will often coke back someday. I want to encourage one to
    continue your great job, have a nice holiday weekend!

  69. But for the purpose of why we did the shoulder press, we’ll move to the push press.

    They did not know him, and in endeavoring how to find a single man to rise to that standard, we constantly
    keep ourselves poor; all the way down to 3. I belong to the
    how to find a single man latter class; I never had a chance to go back?
    Nanji has come out of your pain; come out of your mouth like a syrup.

  70. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog
    writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner
    blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  71. What you mean is benevolent sexism. Female privilege does not exist.


    • Why because a feminist says so?

      Oh well, that’s basically gender studies in a nutshell.

      Feelings are more important than facts will ever be.

      Gender Studies Feminism: Where anecdotes are the plural of data.

      • Nice one. You stole that from Bill Mahr, didn’t you?

  72. How convenient that you don’t talk about things that actually affect men, like men getting raped in prison. It must be convenient to overlook such issues while blaming everything else on women. When it’s actually men who made the rules that women couldn’t serve in the military, which was overturned in recent years. It’s also men that say men can’t wear feminine clothing, unless they want to be viewed as weak because apparently women are viewed as inherently weak and that isn’t true.

    • Men don’t make rules. They are mouthpieces echoing their mothers’ values. Read about capture-bonding.

      When the victims of abuse believe the same values as their abuser, they cease to become a threat.

      Men don’t give birth. Only mothers control values

  73. […] Let’s consider these additional male privileges disguised as female privilege: […]

  74. Girls are oppressed. Men betrayed them by siding with their mothers. As a gender, men deserve their suffering. As a species, humans deserve all their suffering for being so stupid, they can’t realise the fortunes of this species has to rise and fall as one; malice is shooting yourself in the foot.

    As individuals, men are expected to endure untenable levels of degradation and insulting infantile lies. But you can’t help girls. They may know nothing worth knowing, but they know they Know Best.

  75. Is this a fucking joke? A fucking satire? I am beyond baffled. You address this to feminists…. The actions described on this list do not even apply to true feminists. I treat my boyfriend to lunch all the time, as he does for me, feminism is about a balance. I do not see a man as a lesser being if he is a caring, supportive stay at home father. And as far as your jab a legislation that beats you down, take a look at who created those laws… WEALTHY WHITE MEN. You sir are in dire need of an education, what the hell would your mother/grandmother/sister think of this?

    • What if it’s not his choice to be the stay-at-home dad? Most modern women refuse to let men feel free to be the men they want to be. That’s the problem. Modern psychology and gender studies keep trying to teach people that masculinity is evil or it’s a social construct. Some of these ladies actually think they know what it’s like to be men. If men started assuming how women think, women would be up in arms. But, there were and are women who assume that men are all about sexual gratification. Feminists on a whole assume that everything that goes along with the patriarchy was inherently evil by design… as if a group of men gathered together weekly to discuss how they can better oppress women… as if the ladies were ever endangered. Men lost life and limb to make sure their wives and children from tyranny. But, according to feminists, those sacrifices were wrong in nature?? That’s worse than saying “That woman deserved to be raped because of what she was wearing.” You know why?? Because death and dismemberment is WORSE than rape.

      No, the patriarchy was put in place to guide and lift women up. It was put in place to govern men and women, making sure that we both stay together and not split off into chaos. It was put in place to make men strong so that they could lift their families, including their wives out of the gutter, so to speak. We’ve only been this technologically advanced for less than 200 years. Before that, men and women had to work together to SURVIVE.

  76. Hi , i m trannssexual , i v had to live first 20 years of my life as a guy in the eyes of society , and since then i v been able to live as a girl , altough not for long ( just a fews years ) , i do understand and agree with that list , and wouldv prefer to be born a girl and be raised as a girl can be , and treated as a girl can be , and now that i m on that side i notice or feel that kind of privileges i get that i didnt before in thoses 20 first year , and i rather enjoy it, and i do not feel like i have less “privileges” ( maybe its because i need to give it time or that i dont really personnaly care about the ones i couldv lost, somes that i saw more like a “burden” or the right to fight in the wolf pit wich i didnt really like ) , altough i have gotten scared of abusing it , because i grew scared of hurting the ones who would have the position i once had and who could suffer from it as much ; also i v had problems with this feelings from some womens not all , that “my kind” shouldnt be considered a woman at all , its makes me feel as if theyr some sort of aryan womens because of what they got at birth and in their childhood , and that i m some lesser thing because i v not been gifted as much as they have been .
    Sometime it feels like there is some laws or rules or should be in the unconscious of peoples about that gender and that sex , and that i m in some way violating theses laws because i do not really fit thems .

  77. It’s a matter of wording: it is correct that you should never hit a *lady*. But not every woman is a lady; a woman who attacks you is a bitch. And in case of bitch, apply bitchslap.

    • Speaking as a woman, I have no argument with this position. If I hit a guy without an extremely valid reason, I fully expect him to hit me back! He probably ought to! If a gal is such a delicate flower that she can’t handle a taste of her own medicine, she should be keeping her hands to herself.
      (Fyi, valid reason might include: guy grabs my ass/breasts without permission, guy hits first, guy threatens physical violence against me, steals my purse, etc. NOT he makes a dumb remark, or he breaks up with me, or because I have pms.)

  78. Are men actually turning into women? Is the wheal of sexes turning ..

  79. […] looked at Men’s Resistance, and the occasionally valuable Thought Catalog. They seemed ridiculous. TC: 1. Female privilege is […]

  80. Hurrah, that’s what I was seeking for, what a
    data! present here at this web site, thanks admin of this web page.

  81. Some of this list I agree with, some I don’t, buy on the whole I think both genders have privileges and problems. I think everything that gives power to men, has its dark side. The same goes for women. Lists like this may seem hurtful, but really they are a necessary counterpoint. It sucks being a girl sometimes, but I wouldn’t trade places for a second!
    I think the list is missing a really important one though. As a woman, I can ask for clarification or information if I don’t know something, or don’t understand something, without being mocked for it or being told I’m not feminine enough. Of course, the other side to this is that some people EXPECT that I won’t know or understand things, which is frustrating at times, but the privilege of being able to ask for help is valuable enough to offset the annoyance. :)

  82. I think one or two of the things on this list doesn’t apply to ALL women, but for the most part, I not only admit this list is accurate, I am not even offended by it.
    Are women not given fair treatment compared to men in some ways? Absolutely. But I find too many feminists are staunchly against sexism…unless the sexism benefits them (i.e. Woman injures male genitalia = funny; Man injures woman’s genitalia = HORRIBLE CRIME AND HE’S WORSE THAN TEN HITLERS! Come on, admit you’d feel that way in these circumstances).

  83. […] Here’s some examples of what MHRAs consider female privilege: LINK […]

  87. It is also possible that Zynga’s chosen advertising network is to blame if we kgaeedddeddd

  88. I feel very sorry that these are the only kind of women you have ever known in your life.

  89. we live in a society where natural selection does not apply. People would not survive in the wild survive and reproduce in society. Also, if we lived in the wild, explain to me how natural selection would eliminate the female, the only gender who can actually reproduce. Good luck making a new baby in the wild without a women.
    P.s. this is idiotic

  90. I am reminded of a reality show in India.
    One female contestant was asked by the anchors of the show to slap a male contestant. She was hesitating. The anchors kept on insisting that she slap. Then she lightly touches the male contestant’s cheek because she did not want to hit anybody without any proper reason. A female anchor insulted her and asked her very rudely to move away.
    Then another female contestant was called. She slapped the male contestant real hard. The female anchor praised her as if she did some act of bravery.
    After that the male contestant was asked to slap that female contestant. He did not want to do that. After continuous provocation, he slapped her. Immediately the female anchor started screaming at him how dare he hit a woman. Then the male anchors also joined in humiliating him. He was kicked out of the show. The most senior anchor (a man) said, “Never hit a woman. If a woman hits you, give her the other cheek.”

  91. […] This list could seem sexist in itself, but it does display some of the privileges we do have. I so appreciate the effort that went into this quite large list! […]

  92. Thank you for being so truthful in the hiedious hierarchy that our society has carefully crafted against the gender of men. I believe it. Lets stick together and rebel!!!

  93. I love that you have edified the reasons i should be happy to be a woman….it’s hard to remember with all the sex slavery and strip clubs around. Women are suppose to put up with their men’s perversions cause in the past we relied on you for money! Not anymore! All of my girlfriends outearn their husbands and still do most of the housework. Women now outnumber men in medical schools. Military service is your thanks for being born….where would most people be without the work of their mothers? Sounds like the men on this site have been badly burned by some girls, and I empathize ’cause I’ve been badly burned by men.

    • That’s the typical, privileged, feminist attitude for you. All of a sudden, men aren’t doing their share. But, history was written by men 97% of the time. We created the automobiles, the equipment, the technology necessary for women to graduate and work in all of these fields. We wrote the textbooks, we did the research. Women CHOSE to live a life of luxury. It’s not that they couldn’t. But, most women couldn’t find any interest in learning about science and technology. The feminists have brainwashed so many women for so long into believing that men purposely held you all back from achieving personal greatness. BUT, it was actually women that held themselves back. Either they were too lazy or too scared. If giving women all the luxuries in the world makes them too lazy to become scientists and philosophers themselves, men are the devil… I guess. But, then again, I think that sounds like a sick, twisted, insane perspective.

  94. […] Netreaper hatte es auf Twitter. Er hat den Link auf die “Female Privilege Checklist” […]

  95. Women can produce offspring by themselves? Really? Huh…must have missed that scientific announcement.

    Men also don’t have “complete control” over their reproductive choices? Seriously? Last time I checked guys had 100% control over where they stuck their d**ks. Conception isn’t a mystery.

    Most of the “privileges” you list in the top 10 are directly derived from value men place on women. That’s kinda not how privilege works but the thinking here is so blinded by politics and self pity and so lacking in rigor I doubt this comment will even make it passed the moderator.

    • You sound like someone who hates intercourse with men so much, you seem to think it’s a one-way street. I want to see more women just come out and say, “I don’t want sex anymore.” It makes things a lot easier for men. We’ll grab the lotion and the Sports Illustrated or Jugs magazine and go into the bathroom. Men found ourselves to be much more reasonable anyway.

  96. Misandry in Canada via the public education sector

    Female administrators are given the proverbial slap on the wrists for explicit misconduct.

    The National Post reports, “Penny Mueller’s problems began in July 2009 when the educational leader of Crestomere School posed for a photo in which she simulated fellatio on the phallic-shaped Washington Monument while in the U.S. capital for a taxpayer-funded conference.

    Another teacher from the K-9 facility was reprimanded and fined $500 by the Alberta Teacher’s Association for posting the picture on her Facebook page where it was seen by shocked parents and former students.” (Source National Post)

    One point taken is that Penny Mueller was paid to operate her job, but instead used her time to allegedly pose for inappropriate pictures. Imagine if the principal was a male
    teacher of longstanding work ethic; the consequences for the male teacher would have been harsher.

    The Toronto Sun reports, ” But, in fact, almost no one would defend the sexual abuse of a young girl by a male teacher.
    But many people do when the roles are reversed — when the teacher is female and the student male.
    The case in question here is that of Tania Pontbriand, who taught gym at a high school near Montreal. She has been convicted of sexual assault.
    Judge Valmont Beaulieu wrote, “The accused dominated her victim who had become completely dependent on her, and trusted her blindly, isolating himself from his friends, losing interest for his studies and causing arguments with his mother.”

    In other words, the young boy suffered as we might expect a young girl to suffer in the same circumstance. (Source: Toronto Sun)

    The Marxist government places feminists on a pedestal and allows perverts like Tania Pontbriand to interfere with her students for sexual exploitation. Because the matter

    CTV News Montreal states that “Judge Valmont Beaulieu rejected the defence’s argument that the young victim was unreliable in his 150-page judgment”. In other words, Tania Pontbriand’s defense lawyers [ probably a representative of the public school board or teachers unions] tried to discredit the male victim, thereby causing the risk of defamation and slander if anyone claimed she had an affair with the student.

    Mary Gowans was alleged to have exchanged over 2,000 text messages with her 14 year old male student, but the evidence was rejected in the feminist-friendly Canadian court of law.

    Inefficient and incompetent female administrators and senior teachers pose a professional liability to the supposed reputation of Canadian public school boards.

    Jacob Serbrin of Macleans [ Article: Free speech under attack in colleges and high schools Schools should be teaching students how to participate in society, not giving lessons in petty tyranny] claims that female administrator Varla Abrams suspended a male student over his disapproval of the school’s sports team. Quote “High schools have a critical role in ensuring that young Canadians are prepared to be engaged citizens in our free society. I’m not the first person to think that they’re failing that duty. But maybe part of the problem is administrators like Northern principal Varla Abrams, who would probably be better suited to running a school in Pyongyang than Toronto.”

    Female Canadian teachers have privilege. They can conduct unprofessional, illicit, inappropriate and illegal conduct without fear of social and legal consequences, and they can enforce restriction on civil liberties if their students complain about a sports team.

    Canada is the world capital of misandry and the feminists know it.

  97. Post #98 is misogynist, untruthful and defamatory. Kindly remove the offending post. Hate speech is not a grounds for free speech. Women are victims of cyberbullying, and we should
    not tolerate the bashing of innocent white women.

  98. […] While I am not re-publishing it here, here is a link to a corresponding  Female Privilege Checklist. […]

  99. Great weblog here! Additionally your website so much up
    fast! What web host are you the usage of?
    Can I am getting your associate link on your host? I wish my website loaded up as fast as yours lol

  100. Thanks for the laugh.

  101. I do hope that you know you are being very stereotypical of females and basing some things off the idiotic gender roles so many of us feminist reject.

  102. I’m still learning about feminism and equality. I know it’s about the equality of men and women, but since the feminist movement barely talks about male issues and female privilege. I’m not speaking for all feminists, but I’m normally more sensitive to my own wounds than to the wounds of others, so the only time I really talk about issues that men face, is when I’m talking to a guy.
    I was hoping for an actual list of undeserved things women get on the basis of their gender alone.
    All I got was a giant glob of assumptions. A few of them did shed light on inequalities, and I’m going to discuss them with my friends and colleagues, but the rest are just assumptions.

    I know that I won’t be able to write a comprehensive list of female privileges, ’cause privileged people barely notice their privilege.

    • Are they inequalities, because women didn’t create them?? In order for there to actually be peace between men and women, women have to concede that by making up these gender roles, the patriarchy did so at the behest of women or for their gain.

  103. I always understood the feminist movement as a social force to create equality for woman. I was always raised to respect women. And, honestly, I always put women on pedestal. But, now I find the experience that women (not all) feel very entitled to everything and anything they want. I find that their disposition as if they believe they are better than men, by virtue of being of woman.
    Our society does not hold women accountable for the same acts which men are held within eyes of the legal system, for example.

    On regular basis, I see this: Women flaunting their cleavage (sometimes implants) by wearing the lowest (sometimes see through) shirts. Women adorn the clevaage by wearing the tightest pants, that appear as they have been vaccummed on to thier camel toes and buttocks. They do not care if they are children in thier proximity, or whoever sees them, just as long as they assume they are the center of attention. I rarely see guy wearing shorts without underewear or walk around shirtless, flaunting his penis or chest nipples around. And, I think because our society want men to behave and censor their sexuality as if they were frozen in time warp. If man exhibits part of his anatomy, he will undergo both verbal condemnation, such as being called a wierdo, a psycho, as well as exiled and suffer criminal charges.

    Mother’s would be quick complain about a guys penis head sticking out from the side of his pants. It would fuel a potential arrest. Because he is a man. And, a man is not allowed prod down the mall with the crack of his ass popping out of his pants. Only, women are allowed because, she (thinks it is) sexy, when in fact it is just as nasty and uncouth as guy with walking around with his fat pot belly bouncing around.

    We all could agree that there are many positive aspects of feminism. Though I believe it has become an entitlement card, special privileges card, as well as exemption card. Feminism should also mean respect as well as social, political, and economic equality. Except, I think many women lack respect for men because they believe that they have an upper hand on men (like you need my pussy, so pay for it), inclusive of having the modern day feministic umbrella to protect the special priviledges of the princesses. Whom harrow about life being unfair, yet those princesses have more wealth and out live thier male counter parts by many years.

    Men I have to see things more objectively. It is a competition for labor (who has the most money; who has the best job) and who has the most economic and political leverage. Often, if as a man you have that financial clout, then, your manhood is increased ten fold and your are immune to being treated as a second class human being; for as long that your money keeps you on the flying carpet.

    My position: Men should speak thier mind and niether be allowed to be censored, nor ridiculed for expressing thier frustations about the war against men, contrived to de-emasculate and marginalized the importance of being a man.
    Do not stand for it, not for a piece of tuna.

  104. I’m sorry but this list is very stupid, not because sexism but because it has very little to do with the term privilege. It’s mainly just a list of butthurt opinions that are mostly untrue and very exaggerated. IMO female privileges does exist but only a handful of what you listed here pass as that, the rest are just BS. If you really think female privileges are a problem and should be discussed more you’ll have to do better than this, this is just mocking your own cause.

    3. Since being able to produce offspring is merely a physiological result of your gender this is not a privilege, please google privilege to check.

    22. This has nothing to do with privilege, one could discuss whether this has to do with culture, but the fact that woman spend more money on apparel than men has nothing to do with privilege

    30. Again, not a privilege, just someone listing really malicious ways of punishing the opposite sex, wtf?!

    • Cool, I bet you feel the same way about the male privilege checklist right?

      Yeah buddy!

  105. […] right to maintain the belief that men oppress women despite all of the evidence to the contrary. http://mensresistance.wordpress.com/female-privilege-checklist/ 0 Replies   GA_googleFillSlot("a2kTopicLeaderboardEnd"); […]

  106. You have maybe 5 good examples of sexism but afterward it is clear throughout the article in the language and tone you used that either you are biased due to a relationship of some level that has caused you to be angry or feel subjugated by someone of the opposite sex or are simply too ignorant of the struggles of both sexes to make any form of reputable list of entitlements of either sex.
    Yes some men are abused and can have their children taken from them in court regardless of the state of the other parent. However, some children have abusive fathers that manage to stay out of the system and can very easily escape any form of punishment. As for the abuse there are groups now that do handle male domestic abusive cases.
    If you truly take offense as you seem to in your writing you should work towards a goal of no entitlement for either sex and reach an equal middle ground rather than pushing what is essentially a long rant that cannot honestly being taken seriously.

  107. You guys missed one, a woman can masturbate and its seen as attractive, but the moment a man does the same, its seen as disgusting by society. also, screw all you typical bitches who say this is a lie, if you are a actual woman, you would realize all of this is the 100% truth, and you just dont want to accept it, because you’re to stubborn. by the way, not so lady like ladies, i am a girl too, so dont hate on me, i will hate o you for your narrow minded views.

    • ‘a woman can masturbate and its seen as attractive’ – yeah, by men. and if for you ‘society’ means ‘men’ I have bad news.

  108. I don’t understand how you can possibly say the “patriarchy” is responsible for all the laws decisions that benefit women and hurt men. Are you not familiar with feminist lobbyist. That along with some female voters, some female politicians, and the few men who go along with whatever their wives or girlfriends say, are creating the some of the laws that largely benefit women. Those groups collectively are your “patriarchy”, and are mostly women.

    And to whoever said that the selective service is sexist because it is saying that women are not capable of military duties, that is complete bullshit. Women excel in the military, but the draft isn’t about people picking and choosing what jobs they want in the military. Its about getting as much infantrymen as possibly. And you would have to be completely daft to argue that women are just as physiologically suited to be in the infantry as men. It’s not just about pointing your weapon and shooting it. Someone mentioned vaginas being more complicated then any medical issue a male might experience, well I cant argue with that. Lets see how many UT infections you can get after a couple weeks of only bathing with baby wipes for a couple weeks as an infantryman. It’s not practical.

    • Humans got along pretty well for a long time before we invented indoor plumbing. Also, the draft is about pointing your bullet hose at the other guys and catching their bullets with your face so the guy behind you can keep using his bullet hose. Females are perfectly well suited to catch bullets with their face in combat.

      Complete checklist:
      1) has face with which to catch bullets.

    Female Privilege Checklist | Balance of Power

  110. Many of responses provided by the responders have interesting premises.I tend agree with many of the perspectives. It is true. Our society provides special entitlements and unfair protections to women. I understand that women are all princesses. Princeses do not derserved to be sent to Syria to fight for the United States Of America, and get thier pretty face and limbs mutilated by a phospherous grenade in combat. Because they can send a 18 year old male, whose life is not as precious as a woman life. So, a woman does not even have to submit her selective service. She can go to school, get a nursing degree.
    Make 85k plus a year. Drink Lattes, paint her nails, cheat on Facebbook with other men or girls, and shop at Khols. Meanwhile her husband gets his legs shot off. She gets the financial compensation, perhaps the emotional pain. But, you know that woman has a vagina and our country’s priviledeges to help her do anything that she feels like it because she is a princess.

    At her place of employment, she gets her special entitlements and protection from sexual harrassment, too. Even, if the there was not any sexual harrassment during unsuspected bump down the hallway or somewhere in a close quarter entry. She can complain. Alert the authorities of her victimizaton, while disparaging the true victim to give credibility to herself. And of course, our system plays into the woman false claims. Then there is that problem that women lure you in with their tight spandex pants and low cut spandex shirts, flauting thier camel toe on thie gentials. Or, her spandex shirt displays her pointed nipples. The guy looks. She smiles because of the attention.
    Then, women complains of being oppressed and harrassed. Yes, the guy gets fired. Loses his employment for absolutely nothing. The women gets personal satisfaction through revenge.
    Same, a woman wants spit on man, hit him, kick him the nuts without any consquences.
    Because, it is all about being one-side, prejudiced, and forcing every political correct rule against men. It is not about equality. It is about punishing the male species due to Caucaisian Superemacy that has existed in our country since its inception.
    Now there has been attempt (mostly successful) to over power the male dominance by using pro-feminist laws, de-emasculating men in social media, as well, in as our educational system.

    I do not opposed feminism and social justice. Just the feminism feigning to stand for equality when it is apparent that they want it all-fame, glory, respect, admiration, money……All on thier schedule and demands. I cannot agree that men in this country must be careful.
    What can be trusted? Who can be trusted? Look past the red lipstick and big mamallian breast implants and spandex camel toe between thier legs.
    And, stand together for true social justice found through the correct social consciousness that is helpful to all the children of our creater, to our society, to our future.

  111. This is list is kind of only true in North America/European/developed countries… it’s definitely not even close to true for the other half of the world…

  112. Dont forget that ladies bicycles are made with a step through design for easier mounting when were the ones with nuts to rack if we hit a pothole.

  113. Hi i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere, when i read this post i thought i could also create comment due to this good post.

  114. Feminism will work if every female is on board. I mean 100% of females on this planet give men a reason to respect every female. Unfortunately males see women as a place to put their penis and quite simply don’t respect them, and have no reason too.
    Men are genetically programmed and have been for thousands of years to be hunters and gatherers. Now women are saying they want to be too and it is disrupting the natural balance. Why do u think the divorce rate has increased exponentially over the past century? Why do u think kids are committing suicide at such an alarming rate due to a high rate in mental illness? Keep going ladies your movement is really benefiting humanity.

    Female Privilege Checklist | Balance of Power

  117. So many neck beard fedora tippers here :( y’all are damn pathetic as fuck lmao

  118. I stumbled upon The Male Privilege Checklist lately and immediately after that I wanted to search for the female counterpart to be able to see both points of view. sadly, most of the points here are far from being objective (not to mention far from being even real) so it’s very hard for me to take this post seriously. does anyone know a more adequate equivalent than this laughing material?

  119. I could not help to notice the way many women treat men with skepticism and as degenerate dumb sloths hungry for piece of pussy.
    Many are bullies, conceited, and wear an attitude as if they have special entitlements because they have a vagina and mammalian glands.
    Many American women believe they are God-princesses who walk on water with their high heels. This neo- American society has intentionally social engineered hatred against men. Put men on the back of the bus. Attempted to censor and emasculated men to achieve the goal of female superiority at all cost. Well, I am still young, single, good looking and with accomplishments. But, everything I learned in my religion, upbringing, about loving and respecting women is turning out to go in reverse. Marriage with American woman with selfish values into American feministic framework, I do not think so.
    I rather rebel! A decade ago a good friend doing his undergraduate in political science questioned: “Who is your real true enemy?”
    I say, American’s can make of a better America by focusing on less unnecessary hatred over gender superiority.American’s need families that will produce babies, that will become great leaders and put this nation in a better direction. Oppression against men is a loss cause that will not serve humankind any good.

  120. Before I start, a lot of these are legitimate concerns, although this list is highly repetitive. But here are some of the ones I find to be bullshit and why:
    2. It is progressively becoming socially unacceptable to be a SAHM. They are looked down upon and people think they should work.
    3. Seriously, you’re complaining because women carry the baby? There’s nothing you can do about it.
    6. “With little to no social stigma?” More like everyone thinks you’re a horrible person and going to hell. From protestors outside abortion clinics to telling your friends, everyone is going to be frowning upon you. Shut the fuck up. You don’t know what you’re talking about.
    8. Not really sure what this means
    9. 90% of women take their husband’s last name. The other 10% that don’t are feminists who generally have degrees and careers and lives and statuses of their own prior to marriage and keep their name because they don’t wanna lose that.
    11. This is a direct result of patriarchy. Feminists fight this. Same with 48 and 59.
    12. This is disregarding hardworking single moms and mothers in marriages where the woman makes more money and works more hours than the man does. Oftentimes, women are the breadwinners. 38 is a repeat of 12.
    13. I’ve never heard of this happening. Can you give me an example? 39 and 89 are a repeat of this.
    17. This example is retarded. Nobody treats pms like alcohol.
    23. Men generally don’t wear jewellery as often as women, so that would explain this.
    28. This is simply not true. So long as the woman isn’t a crazy motherfucker (and there’s a lot of them out there that screw over men in this exact category, don’t get me wrong) and the parents live in the same state, custody is generally awarded to both parties in divorce court. Again, that’s not to say many men don’t get screwed; they do.
    30. Not due to sexism, it’s due to the fact that child molesters and rapers have lower status than sluts. If you said she raped you she’d probably be looked down on just as much. I personally think there’s nothing wrong with sluts so long as they’re responsible.
    37. This is generally because fashion is a female-dominated field in which men take little interest in.
    42. Im sorry, but the facts aren’t right. Women do not initiate domestic violence more than men, unless you think “she was bitching so I slapped her” counts. That’s not to say that it doesn’t occur with men; it does.
    44. Bystander effect is not gender-neutral.
    46. This is insultingly sexist towards women, and is the only thing on the list that is.
    51-54 are retarded and overly exaggerated. This never happens.
    57. If you don’t want to do something for your wife, don’t. You don’t hear women saying a man raped her if he cries because he wants to have sex with her; if she later complies, that indicates consent and is called a sympathy fuck.
    61. The problem isn’t being hit on at bars. It’s being hit on everywhere you go, and not being able to escape it, even if you dress conservatively, walk swiftly to indicate you are going somewhere and need to get there quickly, and wear headphones to indicate lack of response if approached. Men choose to ignore all of these signs, simply because some men think women are sexual objects.
    67. Inflation is not because women are working.
    73. Yeah, because they wanna fuck me.
    78. I do have that right. Men have the right to do that to women also.
    90. That’s your fault if you pick a girl who’s an entitled brat.
    93. How the fuck is this sexual harassment?

    • Also, women are starting to go directly to gaol for killing children in the US, so at least we’re making some headway.

  121. 98. Feminist favorite position in the book Kuma Sutra is “Doggie Style”. 😜

  122. You idiot(!) Ye can’t exactly produce offspring on your own; ye need a boy’s sperm!

  123. Although “most” of these points are valid, some are plain stupid and does not call for an “excellent list” as you say. There are a lot of women who use their looks to get what they want and manipulate men for status or money but that doesn’t mean ALL females are the same so it’s kind of annoying that women have to this read these statements starting with “I”.
    Don’t generalize! I’d guess men don’t like the “all guys are same” statement, do you? Assuming all men are bad because some rape or abuse women. Just so you know, it’s the same here.
    And regarding reproduction, yeah right! Maybe you need to be reminded that we didn’t ask for that “privilege” just as you didn’t ask for yours and since I’m the one who has to CARRY and give birth to a child, I do have a right to not want children. Honestly, IT IS MY BODY. Now using that to blackmail a guy is wrong but again, not ALL of us do that! Regarding the abortion part, again, my body! And the whole thing about men not having the choice of whether or not to be a parent is total BS. A lot of men choose to abandon their children on a regular basis. How convenient.

    ” If I’m uncomfortable exercising around men I can demand a female only gym be made for women. ” Oh yeah all us girls love it when creepy guys stare at us. We also love all the “look at her butt” comments fyi!

    ” If I go to a club or bar with my girlfriends and I look my sexy best I have a right to be perturbed when men approach me and hit on me in this public place. ” Yeah I feel SO very lucky when some random creep wants to buy me a drink (usually under the assumption that I owe him something in return) even though nowadays women practically have to carry litmus paper to make sure their drink isn’t drugged! Well I guess that’s such a privilege

    “I think it is my right to work and I am unconcerned if the influx of women into the workforce has reduced overall wages to the point that it’s hard to support a family on just one income, or affirmative action has kept men from being promoted even though they deserved it.” YEAH I’LL JUST STAY HOME AND MARRY A GUY WHO EARNS because that’s what this whole list is about! IRONY MUCH!? Make up your mind!

    ” Restrooms for my gender will be cleaner and are more likely to have flowers or other decorations. ” Maybe your gender should learn how to aim and use the flush.

    ” If I’m caring for a child restrooms for my gender will more likely have a changing table for my convenience. ” Or I could lay my baby on the bathroom floor. No big deal.

    ” People I’ve never met before are more likely to open doors for me.”
    People I’ve never met before are more likely to talk to me in public.”
    I DO THIS (I’m not a guy) and a lot of other women do too! Its called being polite. Look it up.

    ” If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he doesn’t call I have a right to think of him as an asshole.”
    ” If I meet a man that I like and I give him my phone number and he calls me I have a right to blow him off or act like I don’t know him. ”
    Unknown, creeps totally don’t ask for our numbers all the time and call, text, spam without revealing their identity and call us bitches with attitude, proud, *big people* if and when we don’t reply right?

    ” I believe I have a right to live in an orderly and safe society but I feel no obligation to risk my safety to secure or maintain that society ”
    No I should definitely quit everything I’m doing and start patrolling.

    ” I’m more likely to believe that women who commit crimes are sick and need treatment or understanding whereas men who commit crimes are evil and should be locked up forever. ”
    I’m pretty sure none of us think that.

    ” I can sleep with my boss if I want and afterwards I can sue him for sexual harassment ”

    One word “slut”

    ” I can wear seductive clothing and perfume to attract a man at work but no one will accuse me of sexual harassment. ”
    I can wear whatever I want. Or do you prefer your women stinky? We don’t like most of the retarded clothes you guys wear either.

    This list makes the assumption that women don’t have dependents or responsibilities outside of dealing with men. Also, what if the woman is a lesbian or asexual? Does she still hold these so-called “privileges”?
