Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

I wouldn’t

How has patriarchy hurt you?

1. exacerbates body dysmorphia/eating disorders 2. Keeps assigning me male mentors even though I learn better from females/don’t do well with male authority figures (note: actually, hard to say patriarchy does this since male/female superiors tend to sort themselves this way, but a higher density of female bosses, professors, etc, would alleviate this.

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

Well, when I break up with girls they usually interpret something I say re commitment or freedom as “wanting to have sex with other ladies” which is really often not the case, but that impression of dudes probably comes from decades/centuries of dudes always having sex with other ladies all the time. Also I domineer conversations but I mostly do that to other men because talking to girls is scary!

How would you define masculinity?

It mostly involves death & self harm. For a cause or for its own sake. Radical pursuit of glory. Solitude, strength, seriousness, and self reliance etc are not separate or distinct concepts from this imo.

Does misandry exist?


I’m a damn misandrist! it’s honestly more ameliorable to extremely masculine dudes than feminism! misandry is not far at all removed from egoism/narcissism/self destructive pursuit of glory type stuff!

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?


sometimes disadvantage, ie the female mentors thing, sometimes advantage but that’s mostly assumed since its hard to pick out times you got by unfairly just as a thing of human nature

What best describes you?

None of the above
