Quote
"I’ve tried desperation: not a pretty color on me.
Everything I touched was left with a streak of grease.
My palms slippery with bargaining and filled with sweet nothings.
Resolve fit better but sometimes it was too stiff;
Starched, rigid, it felt like armor and at times like walls skyscraping,
it became colder. Winds get better the taller you are.
Hunger has been my favorite though.
I’ve been leaving behind teethmarks."

This article is terrible and there’s no need to click on it, lest thoughtcatalog take it as encouragement. The content is reposted below and mocked as all hell because Mark Saunders is a lazy coward. The whole thing is embarrassing garbage, another log on the ‘thoughtcatalog is burning’ fire, but I’m an idiot, so let’s go through it point by point and yell.


"1. Female privilege is being able to walk down the street at night without people crossing the street because they’re automatically afraid of you."

Female privilege is not belonging to a demographic so historically threatening that even its presence can create cause for alarm.

"2. Female privilege is being able to approach someone and ask them out without being labeled ‘creepy’."

Female privilege is the ability to exercise agency over one’s sexuality and only be referred to as really minor slurs, like ‘whore’.

"3. Female privilege is being able to get drunk and have sex without being considered a rapist. Female privilege is being able to engage in the same action as another person but be considered the innocent party by default."

Female privilege is the opportunity to take advantage of someone, which, when us boys do it, looks bad. This is unfair to us boys, who are sick of being labeled rapists for committing sexual assault.

"4. Female privilege is being able to turn on the TV and see yourself represented in a positive way. Female privilege is shows like King of Queens and Everybody Loves Raymond where women are portrayed as attractive, competent people while men are shown as ugly, lazy slobs."

Female privilege is being represented by only the most beautiful, unattainable standards of heterosexual, white beauty.

"5. Female privilege is the idea that women and children should be the first rescued from any sort of emergency situation. Female privilege is saving yourself before you save others and not being viewed as a monster."

Female privilege is having full control over one’s own actions in an emergency scenario, which is a trait absolutely exclusive to women.

"6. Female privilege is being able to decide not to have a child."

Female privilege is the unfair weighing of judgments in favor of the person whose body is actually affected by decisions concerning their body.

"7. Female privilege is not having to support a child financially for 18 years when you didn’t want to have it in the first place."

Female privilege is raising your children alone.

"8. Female privilege is never being told to ‘take it like a man’ or ‘man up.’"

Female privilege is not having your prescribed gender identity most commonly associated with strength and self-sufficiency.

"9. Female privilege is knowing that people would take it as a gravely serious issue if someone raped you. Female privilege is being able to laugh at a ‘prison rape’ joke."

Female privilege is growing up in a society with such a high potential for sexual assault that people might actually have to take you seriously.

"10. Female privilege is being able to divorce your spouse when your marriage is no longer working because you know you will most likely be granted custody of your children."

Female privilege is raising your children alone.

"11. Female privilege is being able to call the police in a domestic dispute knowing they will take your side. Female privilege is not having your gender work against where police are involved."

Female privilege is growing up in a culture that dismisses you as weak, meek, and incapable, regardless of the scenario

"12. Female privilege is being able to be caring or empathetic without people being surprised."

Female privilege is not being rewarded for active participation in a culture that encourages unchecked aggression.

"13. Female privilege is not having to take your career seriously because you can depend on marrying someone who makes more money than you do. Female privilege is being able to be a ‘stay at home mom’ and not seem like a loser."

Female privilege is being financially subservient in the household.

"14. Female privilege is being able to cry your way out of a speeding ticket."

Female privilege is the opportunity to render oneself weak and prostrate at the feet of authority in hopes that they, representatives of the culture they’re a part of, will accept that you are weak, over-emotional, and a terrible driver.

"15. Female privilege is being favored by teachers in elementary, middle and high school. Female privilege is graduating high school more often, being accepted to more colleges, and generally being encouraged and supported along the way."

Female privilege is performing the minimum acceptable amount of work throughout public school, which men are fundamentally incapable of without being coddled.

"16. Female privilege being able to have an opinion without someone tell you you’re just ‘a butthurt fedora-wearing neckbeard who can’t get any.’"

Female privilege is the ability to have an opinion without, I don’t know, being told that you’re being irrational, over-emotional, or undeserved of earnest consideration by virtue of the fact that you’re menstruating.

"17. Female privilege is being able to talk about sexism without appearing self-serving."

Female privilege is being so disadvantaged that, when discussing the nature of a system that diminishes your bodily agency, people might assume you’re sincere.

"18. Female privilege is arrogantly believing that sexism only applies to women."

Female privilege is the capacity to understand that institutionalized hatred is different from someone making fun of your dumb hat online.

"You never named me.
Victor, you never gave me
what little humanity
every person is owed.

I understand there are abominations
and monstrosities that should be forgotten and
erased from history but
even hurricanes have names."
