Does patriarchy exist?


How would you define patriarchy?

A ruling class oblivious between the distinction of privelege and right as much as it is oblivious to the distinction between sex and gender identification.

How has patriarchy hurt you?

it hasn’t. Being that I can privilege from its existence it has done nothing to me save for a few inconveniences that those in my position less aware of their privilege may define as “hurt.”

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

I have underestimated those who would identify as women in the past. I’ve come a long way but there’s always room for improvement.

How would you define masculinity?

Definitions change so I would say masculinity is a reaction to how our baser instincts define power as it exists in today’s society.

Does misandry exist?


Misandry exists as an extreme response to a patriarchal power

Have you experienced gender and/or sex related prejudice?

Only in a way that has advantaged me

While I’ve experienced prejudice based on my gender/sex I’ve never had to fear for my life or position in society so I can’t really say it’s done nothing but given me advantages.

What best describes you?

An ally to feminism
