2. I don't think you mean that headline

at least not as I understand it

to say that people are victims of the CONCEPT of male privilege

is to say that it is a false idea that harms people

I might agree with that, but I only find the concept midly annoying and politically harmful, not so much materially harmful.

Instead you seem to be saying that the REALITY of "male privilege" is harmful, but not just harmful to women, but also harmful to men.

Which seems to be kind of a bizarre thesis. If it is a "privilege" then how can it be harmful?
