[YouTube] The Truth About Male Privilege

Recommended Posts

 

Male Privilege is a term for social, economic, and political advantages or rights that are made available to men solely on the basis of their sex. Feminists tend to believe that they are living under patriarchy - where men hold the power and women are unfairly exploited. Stefan Molyneux looks at the statistics and data in an attempt to answer the question - what is The Truth About Male Privilege?

At 1:18:09, Stef talks a bit about the Milgram experiment.

1:18:25 "Not all men - a significant proportion of men - refused to obey and apply this lethal force in the simulated - although they didn't know it was simulated - environment but, in many of the studies, all the women complied with those in authority, and again the biological reasons for this..."

 

Could you please provide a source for this? My own brief research so far has only found statements that the men and women were EQUALLY compliant.

Great episode. At 18 mins the information on boy's success in school got me interested in finding out how I did. Do public schools maintain grade records and standardized test scores that are accessible by past students?

Some of these statistics are mind blowing. 

 

Have any feminists publicly rebutted it in any way? 

 

It's only been published for a day, so not yet. That being said, I already have plans to create The Truth About Male Privilege II - with even more statistics.  I'd also be interested in doing a presentation on issues that women legitimately face which don't get enough attention. It would be nice to be able to have an honest discussion about improving gender relations without all the nonsense.

I have no idea, but that's an interesting question. I'd imagine it's different for every school system.

I would be disappointed if a second salvo aimed at the expected response was not already prepared. As my instructor, er, instructed, "Know where the attack will come, and have an appropriate counter in place." This is Breitbart territory.

great work, astonishing in general. My keyboard is water-broken so I didn't get a chance to post my first reaction, prob will rewatch. But I shared it on the mashable post of the femenist wage "equality" highschooler quote. Hopefully it gets some extra clicks and views. Quite a few people in the comments pointed out the myth and other points so that's good too.

Karen Straughan, who uses the pseudonym GirlWritesWhat, posted the following on Reddit.

 

http://www.reddit.com/r/PurplePillDebate/comments/35qu94/what_should_women_do/cr7ga25

 

I don't think there is a universe that could exist where men, in general, hate women.

 

So maybe the first thing would be to stop accusing men of hating women? And to call out the women in positions of power who accuse men of hating women? And to call out the women like Quinn Norton who claim that men are raised to hate women, or Chloe Angyal of Feministing who claim that our entire society hates women?

 

Honestly, the Nazis hated the Jews. The Hutus hated the Tutsis. The KKK hated blacks. And yet this male dominated society, where men hold the majority of the positions of power, somehow HATES women despite not a single lynching of a woman for wronging a man, despite NOMAAS and the White Ribbon Campaign and HeForShe and a male feminist president, despite Boko Haram's sparing of girls while burning boys in their dormitories, despite the unbelievable (and unbelievably unspoken-of) gender gap in executions and criminal sentencing in Islamic countries, despite males being the primary receptacles of violence by both males and females from infancy to old age GLOBALLY, despite not a single genocide in history that DIDN'T begin with the

systematic extermination of almost exclusively men and boys.

 

And you think men hate women. If men hate women, then how do men feel about men? On any given day, any given male is more likely to assault a male, undermine a male, ignore a male in need, murder a male, celebrate the suffering of a male wrongdoer, hit his male child, make a decision to mutilate his male child, arrest a male, convict a male, and sentence a male to incarceration or death, than he is a female.

 

And yet women--yes, women--have allowed a narrative to become entrenched in all our systems and institutions that males favor other males at the expense of females. That somehow, there is a "team men" that has been oppressing, subjugating and subordinating women since the dawn of human history. That men have waged a "war on women" since we descended from the trees and first tottered on two legs on the African Savannah.

 

Men have bled for their women, fought to protect their women, died for their women, and admonished each other for millennia to love their virtuous women as Christ loves the Church, to treat their honorable women as queens and as jewels, to present to them the heads of the men who displease them, and to duel to the death to defend their honor. The literary canon, written primarily by men, has always lauded a masculinity that protects women--the villains identified by their willingness to harm women, and the heroes identified by their willingness to avenge those harms.

 

And you think men hate women?

 

Men have never hated women. Men will never hate women.

 

What you see as hate is fear and frustration. Fear of what you have the power to do to any given man on any given day, just by virtue of being female. Frustration that no matter how far men bend to your whims, it's never enough to prove to you that they don't hate you and have never hated you.

 

For god sake, have you ever gone on a conservative website and seen what the people there write about Islam and misogyny? These men couldn't care less that for every 1 woman executed for adultery in Saudi Arabia, 500 men are executed for less serious crimes. They couldn't care less that 80% of women in Saudi Arabia DON'T want the driving ban lifted, because it would mean giving up the privilege of being waited on by male family members. Those conservatives say, "OMG, look at how those horrible Islamists treat their women! They objectify and sexually exploit them!" And what do you think the Islamists are saying about Americans? "OMG, look at how those horrible Americans treat their women! They objectify and sexually degrade them!"

And somehow, a minority of women (feminists) have convinced all of society that men hate women.

 

No wonder men are afraid of you. If you [women] can convince society that it hates women, in the face of all the evidence to the contrary, then you have a power that is unfathomable to the average man. A power that is unfathomable to the most powerful man. You have the power to convince society that men hate you because they don't love you 10 or 100 or 1000 times as much as they love other men, and you have the power to convince society to enact legislation an policy based on that completely stupefying false belief, and these powerful men who supposedly hate you and are in charge of everything will do it. They'll lie and they'll cheat and they'll throw less privileged men under the bus just to prove to you that they're not misogynists.

 

Putting your foot down and saying, "what you're doing is abuse" is not hate. Drawing a boundary and saying, "this far, no further" is not hate. Saying, "I choose not to have anything to do with women unless necessary" is not hate.

 

It's self-preservation, HSW.

Both sound great Mike. I'd be interested in hearing thoughts about "micro aggressions" as well as issues women face in the workplace such as "bro culture" and sexual harassment.

I'll be tough to top Stefan's comments on micro-aggressions from this video:

Could the next part focus slightly more broadly to include other parts of the world? I find it hard to identify the data which may not be relevant to the European tax farms.
Huge thumbs up for this rational approach!

If folks in other parts of the world have some good information in mind, please pass it along -  I'd be happy to include some international examples.

 

I'd also like some good examples and data on actual injustices against women. It's tough to sort through the fog of propaganda, but if anybody has ideas on that subject, please do let me know!

About the preference for women in STEM fields.  I have heard the opposite, in a study done with fake applications for doctorate programs I believe.  Are there conflicting findings in different studies, or different interpretations of the same data?

News is reporting of relevant current events by interviewing or presenting primary sources, in context with historic events and relevant situational details. Aggregators curate news from others, but do little original work of their own.
