Arletta explores on ArlettaUNLEASHED Blog 'Sexism and Male Privilege: A Former Black Feminist Perspective' This Sexy Self-Love Series video from the Sensual UNLEASHEDment Expert ArlettaUNLEASHED.
In this provocative blog ArlettaUNLEASED explores the existence of the mass antipathy towards feminism in the black community.She highlights that whether conscious, muslim, christian, spiritual or neutral in most cases the opinion towards feminism is negative.
She discusses how ridiculous the wholesale denial of the existence of patriarchy and sexism in the black community especially by black men and the general denial of the existence of male privilege is.
She notes the faults of feminism and how it has primarily benefited upper class white women and discusses how at the same time thanks to feminist scholarship many of the universal aspects of being female in relationship to patriarchy are documented, articulated and explored.
ArlettaUNLEASHED cites how in many cases men defend the privileges that patriarchy accord them and oppress women as what is normal or natural or ordained by God.
She addresses the specific example of male privilege in terms of the division of labor in household and that women still of perform and have the majority of responsibility of the household.
She equates the amount of responsibility women have of maintaining a household, raising their children, working full time at a 9-5 and taking care of their man as equivalent to women having 3 or 4 full time jobs in terms of responibility.
ArlettaUNLEASHED suggests that even an appreciation of the full extent of the work and labor that the majority of women do on a daily basis for their entire lives and acknowledgement that this work is not something they are supposed to do because they are female but choose to contribute would result in a huge shift in relationships between men and women and women's life experience and satisfaction. With the hopeful outcome of a more equitable and fiar distribution of labor in the household.
She cites that women...Black women in particular concerning unfair division of labor in the household
1. Complain amongst themselves and maintain their discontent, overwhelm and resentment in silence
2, That to question male privilege is to challenge black masculinity and be accused of not supporting Black men
