Male privilege is not monolithic and universal

Privilege is a multilayered and intersectional phenomenon. While Dr. Burkett says she does not want to play the oppression Olympics, it is also a gross oversimplification to use Caitlyn Jenner to imply that all men have more privilege than all women. There’s race, religion, wealth, ability, region, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and many more factors at play. Men have more privilege than women on average, but there are clearly some women who have more than some men because of these other factors.
