'Male privilege may be more obvious in other cultures, but in Western culture it's .. so ubiquitous that it’s invisible. It is so pervasive as to be normalized, and so normalized as to be visible only in its absence. The vast, vast, vast majority of institutions, spaces, and subcultures privilege male interests, but because male is the default in this culture, such interests are very often considered ungendered. As a result, we only really notice when something privileges female interests.'
This seems to have been happening a lot... and for it to have happened a lot, there really needs to be some subculture to it all that continues to foster this thought. We need to ask ourselves how we can start to combat this, because there's a difference between leaving room for other opinions, and saying things that hurt other people. Suffice to say, this doesn't help anyone in the abortion fight!
