I need masculism because women may get blamed being raped and grow up being told their physical appearance is their only measure of worth and no matter their accomplishments they will always be less valuable because of their gender, but they also get free drinks and doors held open for them and that’s just not fair.
examples of female privilege
-cindy lauper’s “girls just wanna have fun”
-the hbo show “girls”

-“girl with the dragon tattoo” (men have dragon tattoos, too, god)

To those who believe in "female privilege":
Privileges are not random advantages. An advantage that a group has only qualifies as a privilege if they’re the group in charge that created and enforce that advantage.
The problems that women face just for being women are caused by men trying to keep them in their place. The problems that people of color face just for being people of color are caused by white people trying to keep them in their place. The problems that LGBT people face just for being LGBT are caused by cishet people trying to keep them in their place.
The problems that men face just for being men (which do exist) are not caused by women trying to keep men in their place. They’re caused by the side effects of the male gender role, which was created by men to maintain male superiority.
The belief that men are violent was created by men as an excuse for men to normalize the violence they commit, and is enforced every time a woman is blamed for being a victim of violence committed by a man. When the belief that men are violent causes men to be distrusted or to be given longer prison sentences for the same crimes, it’s a side effect.
The belief that men are stronger than women was created by men to enforce women’s submissiveness. Every time a man complains about being “emasculated” when a woman is stronger than him or beats him in any sport or game, he’s enforcing that. When it’s assumed that men can’t be victims of rape or physical abuse by a woman, it’s a side effect.
The belief that women are better caregivers was created by men to enforce the belief that men belong in the workforce, and women belong at home cooking, taking care of the children, and being obedient to her husband. When women are more likely to get custody of children, it’s a side effect.
The belief that certain jobs are for men was created by men, and causes women to be raised to believe that they can’t handle those jobs and should instead look for jobs that are made for women. When men are more likely to get injured or die at work, or when men are expected to pay for dates, it’s a side effect.
The belief that women don’t belong in the military was created by men who believe that women are too weak for the military. When men are forced to risk their lives to defend their country but women are not, it’s a side effect.
The belief that men have a duty to protect women was created by men’s own hero complex, and is enforced every time a man tries to protect a woman who never said that she needs protection. When men are assumed to be disposable, it’s a side effect.
Also, every single one of those examples of “female privilege” existed long before the women’s rights movement. So how the hell is the women’s rights movement responsible for men’s “oppression”?
A lot of men’s issues are real issues. They’re caused by the male gender role, which feminists are actively against. If you simply didn’t like the male gender role, and you wanted to show other men how the patriarchy also hurts men, feminists would not have any problem with you. However, by referring to the male gender role as “female privilege”, you’re blaming women, and that’s why feminists say that you’re misogynists.
