Today my brother and I were talking about feminism and male privilege. I am fortunate to be surrounded by many men who are feminists including my brothers and my partner. But being a feminist and supporting gender equality doesn’t wipe the slate clean on years of marinating in a male privileged culture.
Tonight, my partner invited me to meet him downtown, not even thinking that me walking two miles alone in the dark would make me incredibly uncomfortable and even scared. He said it without even thinking, because being able to walk downtown is something that is normal for him.
