    favoured in schools Erm how? The system was changed from more linear (i.e exams at the end of the 2 year GCSE/A level period, which suits boys, to modular, which suits girls, causing girls to now get higher results)

    - favoured when applying to university Once again, how... Far more scholarships for women.

    - favoured when applying for jobs Depends on the job sector There's a 2 to 1 female advantage in STEM subjects. I can't find any stats for the general job market but I doubt it's enough to overturn that STEM difference.

    - less likely to be assaulted Sure, sure Tell it to all the rape victims who are being assaulted & raped by THE REFUGEES atm "Sure, sure", lol it's a fact... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_di..._United_States

    - less likely to be murdered Right... Again, a fact. See above link


    It's not "correcting" me to disagree with statistics, lol.

    The claim was to include the whole of history.

    I think it is absolutely absurd to claim that white women today are more privileged than any of the thousands of Royal families the world has seen over the last few millennia.

    I suppose I could have used a better word than "group", but I thought it was pretty clear that I was meaning a larger demographic than just one family, i.e some combination of race/sex/nationality/sexuality/location/time period.

    Look mate...
    Honestly I'm having a ****ty time right now and I'm a straight white female!
    Why you would go along with some antifeminist nonsense to make yourself feel better is beyond me?

    I am a feminist in so far as it means I want women to be treated equally well to men. I care about men too! I care about people in general. I don't want people to suffer.

    Why on this earth are you wasting your energy on hate? Not every straight white female is fine. Also middle aged white men make up a portion of society that is highly privileged then a few blocks up the road the same age group and gender is suffering poverty and mental health issues. There are no hard and fast rules. Stop being divisive.

    About linear/modular exams. Last time I checked they are changing it to 'linear':
    http://www.cife.org.uk/article/the-n...nd-gcse-exams/ And even if you're right, how does it relate to white women only........

    Nah, men are more likely to become surgeons in many, many countries. Even when oil business are trying to employ more women rn because of lack of female workers in those businesses, other male employees are not making their lives any easier by making up rumours about them how they are sleeping with bosses when lots of them aren't doing that actually. Same goes for many other job sectors:

    What a strange response. There's no hate here, I'm just discussing something that seems to be so often ignored.
