Does patriarchy exist?
How would you define patriarchy?
Any society where men lead and do most of the work, ie, every society that has ever succeeded in the entire history of mankind.
How has patriarchy hurt you?
It hasn’t. The oligarchy, however, by getting people to divide themselves over trivial nonsense like gender roles and privilege, has seriously damaged nearly every aspect of society. Through usury, the oligarchy has destroyed my future job prospects. Through their influence over the laws, they have made it nigh impossible for me to raise a family. Through their ownership of the media, they created a generation of useless idiots. Through Marxist college courses, they taught women to scorn the life of a responsible mother and wife and believe that their only worth to men is their vagina.
How have you hurt people in a way influenced by patriachy?
I’m sure this question is something that makes sense when you redefine words to mean things they don’t actually mean.
How would you define masculinity?
The courage to do what is right, the strength to make that willingness worthwhile, and the wisdom to understand right from wrong.
Does misandry exist?
Yes, of course feminism exists.
Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?
“Suck it up, you’re a man” “You’re a guy so you should carry heavy things for me” “Hey you’re a male so you’re good with computers, fix my computer” and endless other trivialites, but also things like “mansplaining” and that my voice and opinion does not matter because of who I am.
What best describes you?
None of the above
a literal facist far right neo-nazi racist sexist conspiracy theorist shitlord omg
