Feminists
often
chatter
about
‘Patriarchy’
as
if
it
is
an
indisputable
fact
of
life.
Rarely
do
they
acknowledge
anything
to
the
contrary.
It
can
be
time-consuming
and
difficult
to
put
together
a
factual,
adequately
sourced,
eloquent
argument,
especially
since
it’s
so
blatantly
obvious
to
anyone
with
common
sense,
and
your
arguments
will
likely
be
cherry
picked,
ignored,
or
blocked.
So
this
article
is
essentially
a
handy
guide
to
disproving
patriarchy,
very
quickly.

Patriarchy
is
defined
as
a
system
in
which
all
of
the
societal
power
is
held
by
men
as
a
class,
and
is
used
to
oppress
women
as
a
class.

This
is
an
interesting
theory,
but
does
not
hold
up
to
any
real
scrutiny
or
critical
thinking.

For
the
purposes
of
quick
dismantling,
I
will
split
societal
power
into
four
areas,
or
spheres.

The
spheres
are
social,
political,
economic,
and
educational.
The
group
which
controls
the
majority
of
these
spheres
is
the
group
with
the
power.
Feminists
claim
that
the
group
with
control
is
men.
Let’s
see
how
that
holds
up
to
some
critical
thinking.
Hint:
Not
well.

First,
Educational.
In
the
educational
sphere
it
is
clear
that
women
have
the
power.
They
are
more
likely
to
be
in
education,
less
likely
to
drop
out
of
education,
more
likely
to
get
degrees
and
finish
their
education,
more
likely
to
teach,
and
more
likely
to
be
on
decision-making
boards
concerning
education.


Verdict:

Females
have
the
power.

Second,
Political.
In
the
political
sphere,
women
still
have
more
power.
Women
are
the
majority
of
the
electorate
in
the
majority
of
states.
In
a
democratic
system,
the
will
of
the
majority
is
the
will
that
is
enforced
as
law.
Therefore,
women
as
a
class
have
more
political
power
than
men
as
a
class.
Just
because
women
don’t
choose
to
use
this
power
to
elect
other
women
does
not
mean
they
do
not
have
the
power.
If
every
woman
in
America
wanted
a
female
president,
there
would
be
a
female
president.
If
every
man
in
America
wanted
a
male
president,
there
would
not
be
a
male
president.
In
the
UK,
where
Parliamentary
Sovereignty
and
a
lack
of
a
codified
constitution
allow
any
law
to
be
made,
even
ones
which
contravene
basic
human
rights,
women
could
literally
institute
any
law
they
wanted
as
long
as
they
all
agreed
upon
it.


Verdict:

Females
have
the
power.

Thirdly,
moving
onto
the
Economic
sphere.
Despite
producing
and
being
responsible
for
the
existence
of
less
than
50%
of
the
US’
GDP
(Gross
Domestic
Product),
an
estimated
63%
of
it
is
controlled
by
women.
Yes,
women
control
over
half
of
the
US’
GDP,
despite
not
producing
even
half
of
it.
That
means
that
they
control
not
only
their
own
money
but
some
of
men’s
money,
too.


Verdict:

Females
have
the
power.

Finally
the
Social
sphere.
More
difficult
to
quantify,
but
just
as
easy
to
understand.
All
throughout
society
there
are
obligations
for
men
that
place
power
in
female
hands.
The
obligation
of
chivalry,
carrying
with
it
protection,
financial
support,
emotional
support
and
submission to
a
female
whim.
The
obligation
of
instigating
a
relationship,
placing
all
risk
of
rejection
on
male
shoulders.
The
obligation
of
trust,
meaning
that
men
feel
forced
to
believe
women
in
the
face
of
all
evidence.
This,
combined
with
the
undeniable
fact
that
issues
affecting
men
are
given
less
support
than
those
affecting
women,
such
as
domestic
abuse,
rape,
alimony
or
any
number
of
other
things,
shows
a
lack
of
male
power.


Verdict:

Females
have
the
power.

Now,
the
Social
sphere
is
the
only
one
which
I
can
see
being
contested,
as
it
cannot
be
factually
quantified,
but
even
if
the
social
sphere
were
male
controlled,
that
would
still
be
3
spheres
under
female
control,
a
majority.
Thus
meaning:
women
would
still
have
the
majority
of
control
in
society.

So
no,
we
don’t
live
in
a
patriarchy.

One
final
point
would
be
that
just
because
women
have
this
power
does
not
mean
they
all
exercise
it,
as
we
can
see
clearly
in
the
world.
Just
because
women
can
vote
women
in,
does
not
mean
they
do,
for
example.
But
power
is
not
dependent
on
use,
simply
possibility
of
use.
Even
if
women
all
sat
in
the
home
as
housewives
voting
for
men
and
never
exercising
any
of
these
powers,
they
would
still
have
the
power.
