Original article and relevant Reddit thread (yeah I know fuck Reddit, I agree).
Whether or not one agrees with Section 1 is irrelevant, but section 2 onwards of the original article has citations and goes over much of exactly what we’ve been saying on this board for ages with citations.
Namely that is women who are hugely privileged in western specify and the various ways in which men are treated far worse — the article also covered how nobody cares about men at all and conveys how much wider the sex gap is vs the race one.
Interesting read, I’m going over some of the articles citations at the moment.
@Gymcelled thought you might find this interesting, you do good work mate.
“This was inspired by a post asking for evidence of "systemic" racism in society. And what I have is, possibly, evidence for that. But with a twist that goes against established societal dogmas and that may be of interest here.
In almost every single area that people traditionally point to as evidence for racism, there is also equivalent and valid evidence for sexism against men and in favor of women.
So someone who buys the idea that there is such a thing as "white privilege" must also buy the idea that "female privilege" is a thing. And the number of people who are consistent here is very small.
Areas looked at include police violence, hiring discrimination, housing discrimination, life expectancy, and a few others.
I'm sure the evidence itself will bring mixed reactions from people. But what I think is interesting is the fact that these studies -- regardless of how they are interpreted (if people think they are valid or not) -- are consistent in also making a case for sexism against men, not women. And often at higher degrees of magnitude compared to racism. Which means, for example, that white men might be discriminated against worse than black women in many areas of society. Something that many people who believe in "white privilege" will probably find uncomfortable, but that is logically consistent with equivalent studies using identical methodologies that are also used to support their beliefs in racial privilege. Making it hypocritical to believe in one and not the other.”
