    I'm trying (and progressing) to not be so easily triggered. Upon my initial snarl reaction, I actually agree with both points of view that are presented in the video. I did LMAO at the end of the video.

    But I also think the white "straight passing" dude would be considered soft if he was a Black dude.

    Blame society I can't control other folks perceptions of what my mannerisms should be based off sexual attraction.

    I'm soft masculine and have been most of my life. That hasn't worked well in my favor with Blacks.

    Yes it's a privilege (let's not argue about the obvious!‍♂️) but I'm personally more interested in knowing if there are any downsides?

    Okay here are my thoughts:

    1) The video was scripted, over-the-top and clearly meant to be more of a joke than an actual serious discussion, which annoyed me for some reason.

    2) I feel like we've sort of discussed the whole masculine privilege thing before: Why Passing as Straight Is Not a Privilege

    3) There are pros and cons to both. Not to diminish the struggle, but often times fem gays aren't persecuted, they're just assholes:

    Everyone comes with their certain set of struggles.

    I'd be more interested in understanding what feminine-leaning gay men want from the more masculine gays to help solve their problem.
