To the women on this board: If you want to skip this post down to the asterisk line, feel free; you know what life is like, already, so you don't need the education.
Alright, Kchoze, let's address this:
Kchoze wrote:About the text at the origin of this thread. Basically the author is saying that she's getting a lot of sexual and romantic attention that she doesn't want (plus some of these expressions are just nasty, but let's put that aside for a while). How many men think the exact opposite? That they desperately want romantic and sexual attention and aren't getting any? You spoke of your experience, this is mine. Who is better off, the one with a surplus of attention or the one with a complete lack of it?
This is not what the writer was talking about. Did you actually read the examples given?
I want you to imagine the following:
For starters, we're going to cuff your hands behind your back. Now, every woman in the world is going to be given a large baseball bat with nails in it, that they carry around all day, every day. Furthermore, the cops will respond to complaints about getting hit with those bats by asking what you did to deserve it. And if you shouldn't have maybe been wearing a cup, or at least thicker pants. And really, shouldn't you have stayed home instead of going out to that club? Or maybe stuck with your friends instead of going back to that girl's room alone where she could get a better swing at you without being interrupted? Or kept yourself from drinking so your defenses wouldn't have been down?
And are you sure, for that matter, that you didn't ASK to have that bat swung, not in a figurative sense, but in the literal sense of the word "Ask"--are you sure you didn't tell her it was alright to swing, because that's what SHE said happened, and since none of us were there, it's hard to know the truth. And of course, some women will tap you with a spike, almost gently, and then tell you that if you just spread your legs, they'll use the handle-end with no sharp bits instead, but of course then it really is gonna look like you wanted it and just changed your mind afterwards, but isn't that better than getting the nail-end?
Oh, and there'll be lots of comedies and jokes based around women who wind up like they're going to swing and then don't, or who just casually tap your crotch with one of the nails, just to make the point that they have the ability to do so, and that there's not really jack shit you can do about it until afterwards, if you can get the cops to believe you, that is? And if you complain, you'll just be called a humorless shit who can't take a joke, and maybe you just need a woman to give you a real shot to the sac so you can get the difference?
Also, if you file charges anyway? Then you'll have to hear from everyone about how that girl is such a great gal, and you should've made it more obvious that you didn't want to get hit with a bat. And that really, she is probably sorry, and you should just drop the charges because otherwise you might ruin her life.
Now, the vast majority of women, obviously, would never even THINK of swinging that bat. But the small group who do get away with it, a lot. So much so that somewhere between 1-in-6 and 1-in-3 men (it's hard to get good numbers, because a lot of men just don't report it, because of the way they get treated) get hit with a bat least once.
That's what a world where 'female privilege' is a thing would be like, Kchoze. It'd be a world where you can never, EVER be certain that at any moment, a stranger, a friend, a family member is going to haul off with a spiked bat and crush you in the nuts, AND GET AWAY WITH IT, and maybe even get you blamed for letting it happen. And if it sounds ridiculous, then you'll understand why it really is "male privilege" pretty much exclusively.
BTW, folks, you've all been giving Kchoze's point re: father's rights and bogus pedophile concerns too much credit. It's a standard distraction technique for Men's Rights Activists to whip out that, or ask about male prison rape, or one of the other handful of issues that would, in fact, be vastly IMPROVED by a more feminist society--but they use that as a way to derail the discussion, usually as a means to avoid actually addressing a valid and otherwise infallible point about male privilege.
