Examples of Male Privilege from a Trans Guy’s Perspective

What happens when a trans man compares how he’s treated now as a man to how he was treated when he was viewed as female? The patriarchy that we live in and often don’t even notice becomes clear. Here are his observations, please read them! He wrote two articles, there was so much that he observed in how differently he was treated once people started seeing him as a white man (that they likely also presumed was straight and cisgender since that’s supposedly the “default”).



Of course this is one person’s experience and it doesn’t happen this way for everyone, and he mentions that. But it shows a problem that many people would like to pretend doesn’t exist.

Have you observed or experienced any of these privileges?
