Feminism, blogging and privilege

This Guardian article is a few weeks old, but I've only just caught up with it.
Feminist blogs are booming. But are they globalising emancipation - or just playthings for the rich and well educated?
Gendergeek acknowledges that feminist bloggers are privileged:
It can't be denied [...]that the power structures evident in the 'real world' are also obvious online.
But as one of her commenters points out:
I never seem to read any angst by male bloggers that they only represent the privileged.
