Explaining White Male Privilege to the Average Straight White Male

June 22, 2012 

I love this. From the annals of Whatever, this is how you would explain the idea of male privilege to the average straight white male of the world. It makes use of an RPG metaphor, and I love it. :)

Please do read it!! Here's an excerpt:
"So that’s “Straight White Male” for you in The Real World (and also, in the real world): The lowest difficulty setting there is. All things being equal, and even when they are not, if the computer — or life — assigns you the “Straight White Male” difficulty setting, then brother, you’ve caught a break."
