The Male Privilege Checklist

A list derived from a 1990 essay by Wellesley College professor Peggy McIntosh called White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack. Since men usually do not realize the privilege they possess in this society simply by being men, this list may be eye-opening. You can read it here. Thanks for posting it, helix. :-)

Interesting article about unseen privilege - Climbing the White Escalator:

He who wants to do good knocks at the gate;
He who loves, finds the gate open.
- Rabindranath Tagore, "Stray Birds"
