YES! We do!! We are really going through the ringer right now in the U.S. with the bricks of abuse and sexual harassment falling out of patriarchy. This is going to be a short blog because I have just one thing to say;
Even though I do believe that on the whole women tend to be the dominant species in terms of civility, ability, reason, intuition, communication, and leadership, I very much like and respect men as a species. Many women don’t! Like most people, I hold gender equity as an ideal and I shoot for that in my personal life. I really don’t want to live with a male partner that I can trump in most ways, yet, that has been the case for me and it sucks. I don’t want to trump! So, I’m looking for an exceptional man who won’t fear my strength but won’t take advantage of my weaknesses or call me names.
Patriarchy has essentially been a chance for males to catch up with females and I think they’ve done a pretty fair job. I am definitely one of the women that don’t want men to get any more “feminine” than they already are, nor do I think women need to get any more “masculine” than they already tend to be. Let’s have a stopping point here before we stop lusting for each other.
