Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.
The Sociological Cinema
There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)
Because men respect another man’s property (and that’s how they see us) than a woman’s autonomy.

I'm proud of you
Thank you. I’ve worked really hard to get where I am today and still have a long road ahead.
I honestly had no idea. I'm so sorry. Fuck.
No don’t be sorry for me. Life kinda sucks right now. But honestly I am the happiest I have ever been. I have no money, I pay a car note, insurance, and a phone bill - which I realize actually isn’t a lot compared to what most people pay, but going from $100 a month to almost $600 is a lot when you only work part time. But I have the greatest support system I could of ever asked for. And I’m doing this. I am loving my life and living out the choices that I made for myself. I stood up for myself for the first time. And I could not be happier
