FEMALE PRIVILEGE: Assholes Come in Two Flavours: Male and Female, Part II

In her post “Assholes Come in Two Flavours: Male and Female” Typhonblue outlined the rim of the issue* by flipping the genders to show how outrageous the young woman’s sexism was.

Let’s look at this now as an example of female privilege in a little more detail and list the ways it is.…

MISANDRY – Dismissing women’s rape of boys

Commenter MaMu1977 left one of his very powerful comments in Typhonblue’s post “Male Privilege: Slut Shaming”

“Got lucky”?
In my 33 years on this planet, I’ve known 7 boys who have killed themselves as the result of adult women/young boy relationships.

TALES OF THE RED PILL – Occupy Misandry!

Here is a very interesting article from someone in an interesting demographic. This is the same demographic that is plastering Vancouver with MRM posters and provoking and exposing a very nasty, violent backlash – anarchist men and “goth punks”.

MISOGYNY – Hypocritical Accusations of Misogyny on MRM Sites and Neutering the Misogyny Bomb

One very familiar silencing tactic in gender discussions is the accusation of misogyny. Given the gynonormative value system of our culture, a charge of hating women is a scathing accusation. People have been seeing through it more and more, but it is still matter of some concern among MRM commenters.

MISANDRY – The Stereotype of the Man-Hating Feminist

Feminism and feminists get accused of misandry all the time; it’s a major accusation for a movement that claims the moral high ground and claims to be about gender equality.

Harassment in Gaming: Too Much Focus On Women?

JDCyran made a thoughtful and long comment on the “Tropes vs Women” thread that I thought was worth lifting as a post unto itself. Please forgive any proofreading errors, as it was originally just a comment after all. Here is JDCyran’s comment in full:

Speaking of women in gaming, The NY Times printed (digitized?) an article today on harassment in the gaming community and directed it fairly specifically at women (though it does mention other things as well), even mentioning Sarkeesian’s kick starter.

GYNOCENTRISM – Hearth and Home

This entire post by GirlWritesWhat is good, excellent point after excellent point and all flowing in a clear sequence from one point to the next, but there’s one litle point I don’t quite agree with. The whole rest of the post is loaded with good points, enough to write ten posts here exploring, but there’s just this one litle point I want to address, because it’s important in gender relations.
