What to say when some trilby-wearing troglodyte trumpets on about "female privilege"

Yeah. You're right. Women are definitely privileged in this world. They are so privileged that women make up nearly 70% of the global illiterate population. They are so privileged that the US State Department states that between 600,000-800,000 people are trafficked across international waters each year for domestic slavery, farm slavery, factory slavery, and sexual slavery; 80% are female and 50% are children. They are so privileged that within just one year in Pakistan alone, 1000 women were murdered by their own families to "restore honor" to the family name. They are so privileged that 70% of the global poor are female. They are so privileged that in Somalia, 98% of women have had their genitals mutilated. They are so privileged that there are 700 million child brides THAT WE KNOW OF in the world. They are so privileged that in Zimbabwe, women are fined PER SCREAM for screaming or crying during child birth. They are so privileged that in South Africa alone 10 lesbians are "correctively" raped every week. They are so privileged that women in Nepal are legally not allowed to eat until all of the men and children in the family have eaten. They are so privileged that in 90% of countries it is legal to rape your wife. They are so privileged cthat in several countries women can't own property and in several other countries they can be legally forced off of their property if their husband dies. They are so privileged that by the end of the day today, three women in the United States alone will have been murdered by male intimate partners....that means by the time you finish reading this, one has probably already been killed.

....but we live longer, fewer of us die as soldiers, and we are more likely to get custody of our kids if we are one of the 20% of divorces that actually uses the court system to settle child custody, so I guess everything really is catered to us.... Pin It
