White privilege is not having your favorite rapper continuously tap about how unattractive you are because of your skin color even though you are the same color as him and the woman who birthed him.
(But seriously have we been told that the Eurocentric perception of beauty is the only perception of beauty so often that we’ve actually begun to not only believe it but feel it necessary to reiterate it to others?)

I don’t think so!
Vegan and ~*Boricua*~, partner is vegan and Mexican.
(Cis, White) Male privilege is having your art free of labels, or people assuming what things are about. Whatever you are is the kind or art you make, unless you’re cis and white, then you make art that speaks to everyone.
Male privilege is being brought onto a show as a “guest star” and having your character treated with dignity and respect. Far too often, shows cast male guest stars as successful, well-respected and likable while their female counter-parts are relegated to “gold-digger”, “m.i.l.f.”, or “annoying ex-wife” roles.
Charisma Carpenter (Veronica Mars s2)- Hyper-sexualized, shallow gold-digging m.i.l.f. that (*spoiler*) ends up a murder victim.
Steve Guttenberg (Veronica Mars s2)- Nice and likeable owner of a baseball team, runs for mayor of wealthy city. (*spoiler* ends up murderer)
