Q:i get the significance of this tumblr and i commend the attempt to teach people about privilege - but some of the stuff you post here make no sense. like the short skirt one you posted a few days ago; how is that a male privilege? how do men benefit from longer skirts?
If you’re talking about the quote, you missed the point of it.
The quote is about how governments will police bodies no matter what women wear. It is about men constantly reminding women that their bodies are not theirs, in a sense.
It’s not “male privilege” per se, but the ability for men to police women’s bodies like that is very real, and very much a product of male privilege. Tying into the fact that pretty much wherever you look, it is a male majority making laws for women.
In short: It’s not about the laws as much a the fact that men make laws to control women.
