They are equally damaging to the victims. Shutting out victims because of their gender is wrong. It's that simple.

But I suppose I should just take my male privilege to be more likely to be homeless, commit suicide, be locked up for the same crime, be the victim of violence, and so on, and shut up.

Actually, you're right. Shutting out victims is wrong. So we should embrace all the white victims of racism in the 1830s South. All the whites who didn't even own slaves, but got dirty looks from freed blacks when they traveled north. All the slave owners who had to endure so much hate - so many escape attempts, rebellions, and mean letters. For too long, we have ignored these victims. Thank you, Steophan, for opening my eyes to their plight! Because like you said, shutting out victims because of their race is just WRONG.
