So, my brother in law is a lineman. Dangerous job. I’m privileged because he’s a lineman? My ex-husband was a cop. I was privileged because he was a cop? Nope. Doesn’t work that way.

My ex’s partner was a woman. Whether they chose to be or not, is not privilege. Women have the privilege to be lineman, too.

More women stay home to raise kids. That’s not a male’s privilege…
