"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

A transman on "male privilege"

"Most transmen will laugh, some quite loudly, at the notion that we transition in order to achieve male privilege. I’ve been transitioned for many years and still don’t know what that is. I’ve looked around, but the concept is as elusive as the winning lottery ticket that I’m sure I purchased but now can’t find anywhere. Transmen transition because of a gender incongruity, and if male privilege comes with it, it’s only a side effect. But most of us will attest to the fact that there isn’t much male privilege out there to be had."
