Does patriarchy exist?

Yes

How would you define patriarchy?

Literally the rule of men but I guess more colloquially where there is serial sexual inequality, especially in places of authority

How has patriarchy hurt you?

I was brought up that the sexes had very well defined roles and I am continuing to unwrap that gut reaction to one I can rationally justify.

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

Probably although I am unaware of it.

How would you define masculinity?

Traits that traditionally or generically associated with men rather than women.

Does misandry exist?

Yes

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?

Yes

What best describes you?

An egalitarian

not sure the difference between egalitarian and equalist. I am against positive discrimination though. I don’t like the term feminist because lots of feminism is pro positive discrimination and also I don’t like the word itself because it is itself gender bias.
