the problem with the patriarchy is it doesn't know it exists

"The Patriarchy" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward The first step to correction is to recognize you are incorrect and admit it. Many men in power fail to discern that their privilege is the result of a male-dominated ideology rather than by equal opportunity and fairness. They will never level the playing field because everything works to their advantage as it is. They think they've earned it and expect women to earn it. But the game was always fixed. Still is! My friend Stephanie Drury met the patriarchy in this storify thread that exposes its blind presumption. Come join me at The Lasting Supper where we discuss this stuff. Read The Liberation of Sophia, my story of a woman who beats the system first by escaping it.
