It’s always worth revisiting Peggy Macintosh’s “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” just because it’s good, and has the potential to actually create apathy. I’d like to add a few things from a feminist slant:
- You have the ability to sing a popular song and have the love interest’s gender match your preferred gender.
- You can dress as almost anything for Halloween, not just “slutty X” or “that obscure female sidekick nobody remembers.”
Seriously. I love Thor, so I’m going to go as. . .Natalie Portman? And sorry guys, but unless I want to get mistaken for Jackie O or dress in a skintight black vinyl suit, there really aren’t any Venture Brothers costumes for me.
