Not our fault so who we gonna blame? The (scary, scary) patriarchy!

Well the term ‘patriarchy’ gets thrown around a lot by feminists. Apparently it’s like hell for women. Sort of a catch-all for all the bad things that happen to women that can’t be (in their minds) blamed either on themselves or one particular guy.

Wikipedia defines patriarchy as:

“Patriarchy is a social system in which males are the primary authority figures central to social organization, occupying roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property, and where fathers hold authority over women and children. It implies the institutions of male rule and privilege, and entails female subordination.”

Basically feminists claim that men have constructed, and continue to maintain, a social paradigm expressly designed for our own benefit. If that were the case then it’s hard to explain statistics like these and these, showing men at a disadvantage is so many areas. I figure that us guys could build a better paradigm than that.

Yes, there are ruling elites present within our society. And yes, well over 50% of their members are probably men. But a social system created by men for men? A fairy tale. And don’t anyone dare suggest that the ruling coven of contemporary feminists are in fact a ruling elite in their own right (and one that continues to grow in influence).

One thought on “Not our fault so who we gonna blame? The (scary, scary) patriarchy!”

  1. I used to do the same earlier: start off synaig “I’m not a feminist”. That’s because in my mid-teens, the feminists I met were (with hindsight) rabid men-haters, quick to tar ALL men with the tainted brush of many men. And on the campus where I studied, being feminist meant being one of them. Soon, though, I realised that I am a feminist in a better sense than many of them were. So, now, I don’t start with “I’m not a feminist”. Nor do I start with “I’m a feminist”. I just state my view, and if I get a “Oh, you’re a feminist”, my reaction is “whatever label you wish. Now can we discuss the issue-at-hand?” It helps me immensely, in both the short and the long run, to not get repeatedly dragged into a pedantic discussion about other feminists, and others who think they are feminists, and … :-)MM
