Does patriarchy exist?

Yes

How would you define patriarchy?

A deeply entrenched system that favours an (enforced) mascline ideal over all other genders.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

Self esteem issues due to percieved inability to live up to “normal” masculine norms of body type, interests, etc

How have you hurt people in a way influenced by patriachy?

God, probably. Can’t think of any specific times, but I did once spend an hour arguing that the patriarchy didn’t exist. I was old enough to know better. What a fucking idiot.

How would you define masculinity?

I’m not sure I can or should.

Does misandry exist?

No

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?

Maybe

I’ve no doubt benefited from it but I can’t think of a specific example, which is probably the problem

What best describes you?

None of the above

I’m wary of claiming labels like feminist or ally but only because I feel like it’s easy to say but hard to live up to.
