Eh, messages like "girls are not good at math" affect pretty much everyone. I once was amazed to discover my girls somehow managed to learn that "girls can't be smarter than boys". In their elementary school located in progressive Toronto. And that before sexuality is even a factor. Men in power have it the easiest, of course - sincerely, your Captain Obvious. Again, looking from progressive Toronto, all three levels of our government are led by powerful white men, sons of wealthy and powerful white men. Diversity our strength. Also, global warming. How that shows that male privilege ain't real? Uh, OK. I have issues with my mom too. So?
