Dear heterosexual, educated men,

You are often not aware of how much the prevailing social structure privileges you.

You can enter mosques in a tight T-shirt without anyone so much as batting an eyelid.

Your first worry after getting a job is not necessarily about childcare.

You can earn more for said job.

You can walk anywhere without having to think about the time of day and what you're wearing.

You can catch anyone's eye without having to feel necessarily threatened.

Why do you resist women's demands for equality?

William Goode says that "we must never underestimate either the cunning or the staying power of those in charge," because men "view small losses of deference, or advantages or opportunities as large threats".
