If you’re using your privilege to the fullest extent you can, you’re probably stepping on oppressed people and not doing a very good job of checking yourself.
That said, I don’t think it’s necessarily wrong to enjoy privilege.
also if you do decide to look at strawberry panic read the books before watching the anime the anime is okay but the books are better
I’ve heard of it, but it doesn’t really interest me. It wasn’t really the homosexual romance aspect alone that made me love Utena so much. Thanks for suggesting it, though!

Sexism = prejudice + power/privilege. Men have male privilege. We live in a patriarchal society. Aka, men can be sexist against women, but women cannot be sexist towards men. They can be discriminative and/or prejudiced, but not sexist.
Misogyny exists. Misandry does not.
