    Default The Male Privilege

    Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

    I'll bet the boys don't have the privilege of playing with the girls' Barbies, either.

    Perhaps Boys will be Boys and Girls will be Girls?

    Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
    It's a mixed up muddled up, shook up world
    Except for Lola, L-L-Lola

    I have great respect for Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, and Golda Meir (just to name a few!), but if I am forced to choose between only the two extremes of Latino machismo and the radical androgynous metrosexual genderless cultural ideal, I'll pick the machismo any day. As the French say (or used to say!): Vive la difference!

    [O]nce [differences in class, rank, and gender] are muddled or set aside, nothing is more unequal than so-called “equality.” Pliny
