LONG THREAD: I am often asked about male privilege. It happened a lot yesterday, because of stuff that happened on the internets, which I will not be directly addressing here. But this seems like as good a time as any to share some thoughts about the topic more generally...
1) I think that the concept of privilege (in general) functions best as a tool to help people in the dominant/majority group see otherwise invisible advantages that they may be experiencing as a result of *not* being a member of a marginalized/minority group...
...one of a million possible examples: do you ever worry about people not taking you seriously, or employers not hiring you, or doctors ignoring your medical needs, etc., because you are transgender? if the answer is no, then you experience cisgender privilege!
