Despite any lack of official force
, it should be clear that we live in a patriarchy
. Women do not hold a significant fraction of positions of power
; women are underpaid
for their work; women wield less power in private life. Why? Lack of offical discrimination does not eliminate unofficial discrimination; also, girls are educated
to fulfil gender roles
which promote these outcomes. Later on in life, attempts to surpass expectations
and break out of limiting roles
are often quashed by prejudice
. This is anathema
to me, a man.
I would rather have an equal than an inferior.
As I would not be a slave, so would I not be a master.
Death to the patriarchy!
