Male privilege is MarkWatches, the “safe space” where it’s okay for a man to talk about being violent to women and to ban the women who disagree.
Can somebody please substantiate or disprove this? I’m really, really confused here.
Okay, I’ll admit I haven’t been following Mark Watches for a while because I’m waiting until I’ve watched all of Buffy and Angel to read those posts, but…source please? I’m not saying Mark’s perfect by any means, but he’s generally pretty awesome about acknowledging when he’s done shitty things, and this really doesn’t seem like a thing he would do.
I’m not saying I automatically don’t believe the OP on this, but I’d like to see where this happened.
Just wandered thought Mark’s IntenseDebate profile to see if I missed something, and can’t find anything like this? I think this might be about the Great Spuffy Meltdown, concerning some stuff that happens in the season 6 reviews that spawned a huge dramabattle in the comments, but what’s confusing me about this is that… Mark was doing like the opposite of this? There’s an argument to be made that he went too far with the banninating, but he was talking all about how violence against women wasn’t okay and was criticizing people on what he saw as their victim blaming and rape/violence apologetics when they disagreed about the violence shown and whether it really was abusive.
So, like, he was saying violence against women is never okay? Like, so much so that he got massively criticized for it?
Like, whether he went Too Far is an actual point of debate, whether he was silencing people just for viewing things with a different lens, but like, if that’s what happened, it happened because he is That Bothered by violence against women so.
I am genuinely confused how this is male privilege.
But I didn’t pay super attention to that so maybe I missed something? I would really love a link or something, because it’s totally possible that I missed a comment somewhere.
