The kidnapping of 186 teenage boys in Syria on 30 May has gone largely unreported in the wider world, a curious omission given the outcry over the teenage girls in Nigeria.

When it's girls, the news reports "missing girls!"

When it's boys, the news reports "missing students!"

LOL

Same thing with minorities. Whenever you hear about "youths rioting" you know it's minorities.

And "urban" is a poorly-disguised synonym for black and latino.

And when you hear "minorities", you know it's black and Hispanic people.

Male psyche is probably screaming I want to have sex with those girls. But nobody will ever admit that.

Men are disposable. You have to get to terms with this.

Men are intrinsically disposable. You have to ultimately create value in yourself and create value around yourself to remove that disposability. Females by default have this value in our society and white females even more so. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_white_woman_syndrome

Call me crazy, but on the whole, I say western white women are the most privileged group of people on earth.

Sure, many upper class men have slightly better opportunity to avenues of power, but those are a minute subset. The rest even face stigma on their behalf. The benefits of being a white woman though... they're pervasive and most are automatically conferred just for being a member.

Now I'm not American or European so I've never personally encountered women peddling the concept of privilege. But I wonder if their own ever got brought up or called out. When I traveled to Canada and the UK, I heard vaguely about that debate and group divides... I understood the idea... but if you really think about it, they are the top of the racial ladder. The epitome of automatic birth privilege.

Maybe that's why upper middle class white women project so much shit about white male privilege.

Hmm... very interesting to think about... could it be a form of unintentional power talk?

It wouldn't be very comfortable to admit their own privilege. So they just don't mention it and imply they're victims. Perhaps they see it as better to point at another party. It'd fulfills the three main distinguishing features of power talk at least.

It is used to get something for oneself, rather than to convey information.

It can be truth or lies, according to the needs of the speaker.

It is plausibly deniable.

The Clueless(white knights and other women) absolutely follow the rhetoric and don't lead the movement feminism into attacking its own engine(white women free enough to complain) or call out their self-serving bullshit.

EDIT: Either that or I'm misinterpreting power-talk and you should ignore this attempt.

Personally, I think this is a great post and spot on. Wonder if you should make a front page post about it.

Ideas like privilege emotionally resonate with women, and there's a reason - it's because they're surrounded by other women. And in a nebulous social system where privilege isn't really based on something concrete, what's the only way to get those women to stop? Convincing the women with privilege to "check their privilege".

It's projection. Five more gay words.
