Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

The systems in place in society which thrive on the subjugation and control of women. Their free labour and lack of autonomy over their bodies and minds.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

It hasn’t, directly. I haven’t benefited very much, as it’s RICH white men that run it, and I am exploited as a low wage worker, but neither do I have to worry about lack of access to birth control or rape culture.

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

Getting the Mrs pregnant three times.

How would you define masculinity?

Working to feed, clothe and house my daughters, and keeping them safe, while preparing them for the crapsack world they will inherit.
