Do you believe that there is Male Privilege despite the advances of the Women's Movement in America?
Yes, male privilege still exists in many occupations and subcultures of the U.S. It is less of a problem than it once was, but pretty much any woman who has spent much time in the workforce has encountered it to some degree.
Of course, male privilege exists. Women encounter discrimination on a daily basis, either overtly or covertly. Girls & women are treated as the other. The right-wing, fundamentalists, & extreme conservatives are trying to take away women's reproductive freedoms. Women still have to endure discrimination in higher levels of education e.g. campus assaults where rapists, if they belong to fraternities or money-generating athletes, are treated with kid gloves while the victim is shamed, even castigated. Women have to face assaults in the army & other places where there is a male majority & men are in powerful places.
No, women have the same opportunities as men. If not more.
I think more of the power struggles are perhaps personality related , Why in some marriages is the male dominant while in others it's definitely female domination ? I have seen the same thing in family owned companies , very strong female positions in power and the male as the weaker partner. There is a male dominance overall I think , but one has to wonder about personal choice or at least the existence of some a scale of self -choosing ?
Last month in the UK, a rep from the Green Party categorized its members as "male" and "non-male."
No mention of females or women. Females are simply "non-males" with male being the default human.
Are you talking about this Tweet?: https://twitter.com/ygwomen/status/713708838919282688
It clearly states women and non-men i.e. anyone who does not identify as a woman but also not a man (for instance, non-binary or genderqueer). This was an attempt at inclusivity, but who cares? Far better to get the pitchforks and torches.
No, it doesn't exist.
(That's how this works, right? We just assert things without providing evidence?)

“Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?” Harris asked.After a long pause and a bizarre back-and-forth in which Kavanaugh asked for a more specific question and then claimed he thought Harris was “asking about medical procedures that are...

Things Are The SameTo all feminists and neofeminists out there, the status of women have improved gradually over 4 decades since the advent of feminism in the late 1960s. Feminists such as Betty Friedan, THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE, and Gloria Steinem made women that there were roles outside...

Women. God’s afterthought and man’s curse to rule.I think it quite ironic that God, who tells us to reproduce as his first commandment to man in Genesis 1, does not give us something to reproduce with till Genesis 2; 18. Further, only after a severe chastisement without correction, even to...
