why would a dominant group with all the privileges in the world need special rights separate from the rights of marginalized groups?

rights are a ridiculous concept anyway. the only people who can grant rights are the people in power i.e. men

No one rules the world. The world political power is divided among hundreds of states.

Who decided that states are meaningful concepts?

They are people running the world, mostly the people who own the big companies and are at the top of governments as they are the ones who do the decisions for everyone else. Men represents ~87% of the top 0.1% income in the world and 71% of the top 10%.

In terms of political decisions: only 25% of all the national parliamentarians are women and just 26 women serving as head of state or government in 24 countries.

How many states are headed by women? How many nuclear capable states are headed by women?

OH NO! Look, it's SureShot who just a week ago was policing how black women reflect upon their oppression and now, so bravely -- so valiantly -- stands up for black men! How curious!!

And you know what's even more curious? Out of literal gazillions of documented cases of black men (or really any non-white/non-wealthy men) being killed on the spot just because a white woman batted her eyelashes in their direction, you chose the extremely rare case of a white woman being punished for her racism by losing not just her job but even her fucking dog!

Do us a favour, SureShot, and please take your bigotry somewhere else. It's really pungent!

Okay, I'm not particularly sure why I brought it up. But one way or another, I find the idea of all men in general ruling the world and having all the privileges to be very odd.

Of course, you do. You are a misogynist.

Look at statistics, men almost always own more property, are in more positions of power, get more money, etc. And this is not even taking into account the time women spend on unpaid work like taking care of children and the house which is also disproportional. There are many more contexts in which men are more privileged than women, but I'm not going to list them all.

So yes, men are dominant and privileged in this society.
