A common misunderstanding is that male privilege means your life is great, you never had to work hard, nothing bad ever happens to you. This isn't what male privilege is. Male privilege is almost everything in Peggy Mcintosh's Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack. Male privilege is being the archetype of leadership and power in our society. Male privilege is not having to think about personal safety as much as women do. Male privilege doesn't mean that we don't face hardships, that we're not interrupted, that we're not taken advantage of, nor that we’re denied opportunities that we deserve. Your life can be objectively horrible and terrible, you can be dying of an incurable disease in the hospital, and still have male privilege.
