A myth fabricated and spread by feminists, primarily liberal and progressive ones, to use as the excuse for why women are not dominating every aspect of life including politics, STEM, and other jobs. This conspiracy theory automatically assumes all men are not only successful as a whole, but that they have only earned what they have because of their gender. To believe in the existence of male privilege one must also believe that the world is controlled by the patriarchy.
Cora: Women aren’t politicians as often because male privilege let’s men succeed more
June: Yeah, politics is kind of a sausage fest but women make up the majority of voters so…

Becky: Male privilege is being able to walk down the street without having to worry about anything.
Lauren: Men are actually more likely to face street violence. Society just doesn’t tell them to worry or protect themselves.
