Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

A system in which men hold the majority of public power and means to affect their environment to their advantage.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

It has pushed me into roles I cannot subscribe to and I find detrimental to my wellbeing (and that of other men). It has also left little room for women to affect their surroundings in a public and straightforward manner, imbuing their role with many issues and behaviors that have been harmful to me (and themselves).

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

By proxy, most likely. It’s a subtle thing sometimes.

How would you define masculinity?

I don’t. I see no value in historical behavior prescriptions based on gender when I can derive desirable traits in people from rationale and personal preference alone.

Does misandry exist?


Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?


What best describes you?

None of the above
