Male privilege on Tumblr (and the internet as a whole)
One of the most prominent examples I’ve seen is pretty much the ability to say whatever the fuck you want and unless you are literally telling people you hope they get killed, kill themselves, raped, bring slavery back, support genocide, or anything along those lines no one is going to call you out over anything. Hell, there are times when you can do that still find a support ground around you and propping up those viewpoints/reactions as completely legitimate.
I’ve seen women here are the other hand constantly questioned just because of the type of material they choose to right regardless of how “hysterical” they are with it. They’re far more aggressively questioned about her single thought that they float out. Even things that are incredibly well research and have dozens of situations laid out at the bottom are demanded to be re-explained or typed out in very specific words and phrasing in order to not have to deal with “offending” the person making the demands. I mean this goes towards everyone speaking to women regardless of if they share they same sex or gender.
That’s not to say men don’t face harassment. It just is never coded because because of their sex. It’s always to a fair lesser degree though. That very much includes my fellow Black men who may be called Nigger constantly here for a day or two, but will probably go quiet for weeks or months on end insofar as racial comments. The women I follow, particular the Black women, do not go a week without being constantly attacked even if they don’t have a large following base. I mean I’ve seen maybe 2 or 3 days max for the women that on her regularly. That’s not even including all the shit that they delete that I could never know about.
As a male, I have leeway to discuss pretty much anything without being constantly attacked. Not only that, but my arguments are going to given some sort credence (even if only a little) based just being a male before even a single word is read.
