The Male Privilege Checklist

Found this link in my cyber-meanderings. The author admits it is pretty US-centric, and i find it to be mostly heterocentric and eurocentric as well. Its still a great idea, and the author has included people's amendments and suggestions. In the grand tradition of Peggy McIntosh's "White Privilege: Unpacking The Invisible Knapsack" essay, I present to you, The Male Privilege Checklist.

I'm bored at work. . .pardon this late response.

This list is cool, but honestly, I feel like these are issues and concerns for white women. While I recognize my gender is a factor that heavily influences the way I'm treated and perceived, my pigment precedes me. I will be treated as a less than simply because I'm a woman of color.
