It fogs the mind somewhat, especially as a teenager. It took time, reading, conversations and learning to untangle thoughts and expectations.

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

I imagine I have, though it’s hard to think of examples: I am thinking of situations where my expectations and behaviours caused empotional pain. Maybe in breakups? Maybe in the early stages of relationships? Hard to say. I feel like iot was there though.

Male pride. I do believe it’s possible to be ‘masculine’ without being a sexist arsehole.
