Does patriarchy exist?

No

How would you define patriarchy?

If I thought patriarchy doesn’t exist how would I define it? I am hoping you wont use your survey to bash men and mock their “stupid” views for a few laughs. In reality aspects of life is unfair for women (I would list them but I’m sure you know) and other aspects of life is unfair for men. Some examples for you. Suicide rates are higher among men, boys are falling far behind girls in education, is it because the push to raise standards in girls has come at the expense of boys? Are boys just more stupid? Life expectancy in the UK is lower for men. There are many issues that need to be made fairer for men. If you point these things out you are labelled as a “MRA” (Mens rights activist) which is often used as a slur. The whole thing should be framed as equality for all not a men versus women fight which ends badly for all as it succeeds in entrenching positions. Focus should be on making life better for everyone, we are all humans after all.

Women can be as bad as men, I have often been groped and touched by women when at a bar or club (often hen parties are the worst). I am a man so it’s perfectly alright for me to be groped though…
