Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

A male dominated society where women are not equal.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

Being a man I am in a position of privilege. However, patriarchy does not exist in isolation, all sorts of groups of people are treated unjustly and unequally. Personally, despite being in a well paid job I find it difficult to live comfortably due to economic injustices.

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

I don’t think I have taken advantage of my white, male, western privilege. Apart from my mere existence in a position of relative privilege, I try to treat everyone with the same degree of kindness and respect. I find this most challenging with men who wholeheartedly embrace white male dominant society.

How would you define masculinity?

Andy Warhol said that every strong woman wants to be dominated by a weak man. I aspire to be that kind of man. My girlfriend describes me as a sex-positive feminist lesbian with a cock. She loves cock.

Does misandry exist?


I see it as a reactionary symptom of patriarchy.

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?


Sexist comments from reactionary women. I forgave them immediately as I could see they were only being defensive due to previous injustices perpetrated by patriarchal men and didn’t take it personally.

What best describes you?

None of the above

I’m a sex-positive feminist lesbian poet with an average dick but with a higher than average knowledge of female anatomy.
