Does patriarchy exist?

Yes

How would you define patriarchy?

Structural inequality benefiting and privileging men in relation to women.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

It does constrain men’s options & (particularly emotional) expression. ‘Boys don’t cry’ is the cliche grounded in painful truth. I have learned to be quicker to anger than to show vulnerability.

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

Too painfully many to detail.

How would you define masculinity?

Ooh. Not sure I can easily. Perhaps as a social construct of God it is acceptable for men to behave.

Does misandry exist?

Maybe

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?

Yes

/Mostly/ in ways that have benefited me.

What best describes you?

An ally to feminism

I suppose.
