I’ve come to the conclusion that patriarchy sucks no matter how you think about it.
On the one hand, patriarchy sucks because it is a hierarchal system that runs on the premise that men are superior to women; therefore, oppressing women.
On the other hand, even anti-patriarchy sucks because in the fight to gain equal rights for men and women, there is still a level of oppression simply due to the fact that we have to fight for this equality. It shouldn’t be something that women have to fight for; it should be something that just happens. Even efforts to end patriarchy have some basis in patriarchy. Its madness.
