    So sexist. Women can do MANY jobs men can do.You must be a troll if you think women are less adapted than men at this. Also, I only included FEW examples, like gas&oil businesses which you forgot to mention. Get your life together, dude.

    That's why I said "on the whole". Women are more compassionate, better multi-taskers than men so excel in certain professions (e.g. Nurses, Doctors that aren't surgeons, teachers etc.) you can argue all you like but it's Biology.

    My point is I agree with some of your points, but not all. Anyways, we can argue all day but I don't have time for this so let's agree to disagree

    Here's my thoughts people who go on about privilege of a certain sex or race are inane, people looking for someone to blame why they don't get handed everything idiots.

    Money brings privilege and that's it.

    Oh I totally agree but some (other not you) users do use these examples for men.

    Would you, personally, advocate radical feminist thinking, such as killing all white men, and keeping men as nothing but objects?
    Obviously because that isn't feminism that's insanity.

    - less likely to be assaulted apart from, yenno, sexually (although men face problems with this too)
    - less likely to be murdered more likely to be a DV victim, though
    - more spent on their healthcare only really with specific cancers; there's also a massive problem, which has been in the news the past couple of days actually, with doctors focussing on boobs and genitals and missing massive things like brain aneurysms in women because they concentrate on the gender-specific areas
    Today, obviously white women are a lot better off than they used to be (women generally in the UK). However, most privileged group ever? Nah.

    Really agree with hoping4Astars and paul514. Somehow despite being a white female I don't feel this privilege on the daily basis. Studying a STEM degree at uni I received much sexism from the male professors; one incident included when I stayed behind after a workshop to get extra help and a male professor claimed me and my friends were staying for the male PhD students... He even told them and now they ignore me and my female friends whenever we raise our hand to ask for help. Where's my female privilege here?
    Where's my race privilege when a black girl who's a good friend of mine introduced me to her other female black friends and they disliked me just because I'm white? Never done anything bad to them but they often tried to separate me and my other white friends from this black girl and get extremely bitter when some black dudes hit on me? Ain't feeling it over here, I must say.

    Most privileged group at this current time? On average, I'd say, yeah. I still think the top percent of the most privileged are still white men, but they're a minority. The most well off white men are the most privileged. White women have a much larger percentage below them.

    Using that same logic do you believe that OP thinks every single white women is more privileged than anyone else

    No, OP is saying that as a group - so the majority - are. You implied that straight white women as a group - or the majority of said group - sleep with their boss for promotions. However, I'm sorry if I misunderstood.

    Privilege is just a word the equality groups use so that they can use it to campaign

    Advantages would be a better word
