I care about the problems of men. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they have to be stoic beasts incapable of emotion. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they are lust-filled monsters incapable of controlling their own libidos. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they cannot be raped or assaulted because the patriarchy believes women are too weak and inferior to be dangerous.
Feminists did not do this to you, other men did.
actually let me rephrase
the patriarchy is a system of society
patriarchy is not men
yes men may have set it up, but i think it’s very harmful to use the patriarchy to refer to men, not to mention inaccurate. women engage with the patriarchy as well, because it’s part of society
