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 and/or fear. 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!
