The Good Ole Male Privilege Shows Up on Our Side This Time

Victory is Ours especially the Fellas: James Lee Scott and his lawyer

So A Texas Judge rules to validate a transgender man’s marriage to a woman. The case is the first win of its kind. This without a doubt a victory,  but this victory has a bittersweet tase to it. As we all know , well should know, Nikki Araguz is in the process of long appeal after her marriage to her husband was voided by a Texas judge after the death of her firefighter husband. Also in 1999, Christie Littleton’s marriage was deemed null and void as well after se attempted to go against a doctor for malpractice which resulted in her husband’s death. So that is two transgender women denied. Yet here we are another marriage case but with a transgender man, and his marriage is deemd valid and therefore respected. Is this just a coincidence? I dont think so. This that male privilege tat we all have discuss subtle. You hear its while watching FTMs talk about how they feel more empowered to speak and and be heard in the mist to other moreso that when the were living a sthere prior selves. That same male privilege that allows Ftms to get there top surgery to remove breast paid for under insurance because gynecomastia is cover by insurance. It is not consider cosmetic because God formid a male have breasts. That just have to be a medical condition that needs to be fix. Yet top surgery for MTFs are consider cosmetic and are not covers by medical insurance. Now this blog is not to imply that MTFs dont have some form of privilege that come with transition because we as well. I just want to bring it to the attention of my reader to show how full of shit our justice and social system is. Male privilege, bio or not, and misogyny shows up in the most obscure forms and situations. Anywho Like I said this a victory and I will looking at it as a step in the right direction hopefully toward many more.

    Is it really male privilege as much as different people ruling on different cases? This judge may have been very liberal and interpreted the laws in a way which produced this outcome while the law was determined a different way Nikki’s case. I don’t know the reason for the differing results, since I haven’t kept up with the cases but I don’t know if one of the reasons would actually be male privilege.

      Thank could be the case…..could not be….I just find it interesting that the win precedent would be the transman case of divorce and marital dysfunction….and the two cases dened prior were two transwomen cases of unexpected deaths. Seem fishy to me

        Yeah one woudl have to look at the 2 cases and see where things were different. I honestly didnt even read the facts of the current case so maybe be alot of considerations to take into account for the different results.
