Why Some Women Make Patriarchal Choices

One of the most disturbing things for many of us during a time like this - a time when a misogynistic biggot is about to take the highest American political office - is not that the majority of his support comes from Ku Klux Klan members, or that his election indicates that approximately 50% of Americans have no problem with his blatant white male- supremacist worldview. No, it's that among the 50% of Americans that voted for him, there are a surprising number of women.

This can come as a huge and disheartening surprise to men who have chosen to kick their male privilege to the curb in order to make room for the rise of a Matriarchal new world order. However, it's not so much of a surprise to us women who have been on the front lines of expressing our Feminist, Matriarchal mindset. We get flack from men and women alike.

Many a man will ask me why (some) women are so especially cruel and evil towards their fellow women. The Boys' Club really has nothing like it; nothing has prepared them for witnessing what life is like on the "outside" of that club, which can quickly degenerate to Lord of the Flies like politics. Well, lucky for you, I spent most of my 20's and 30's digging through an abundance of literature to get to the bottom of one question: Why do some women make very bad, patriarchy-supporting, decisions? -or- Why do a large portion of American women support male dominance at what is quite obviously their own expense?

Quite simply, I believe they are suffering from an epidemic form of Stockholm Syndrome. It's one of the consequences our society suffers from for conforming to patriarchal double standards of punishments and rewards that change depending on a person's gender.

Patriarchy is a system that convinces both men and the women financially dependent on them that women's welfare does not matter. Women in America are in all different phases of waking up from this brainwashing, as are American men. Some of them see through it, and some of them do not.

Women can only help society as effective social leaders once they are liberated from self-effacing behaviors, which patriarchal double standards ingrain in them during their youth, when they are most vulnerable. A woman who is self-effacing is repressing her Feminine instincts, intuition, perception, and any other strengths she has to offer.

However, if you want people to come out of this brainwashing, the way that you do it is to focus on what you can do, rather than on what certain women are not doing for you.

Matriarchy is not a random group of women agreeing to financially, socially, and sexually dominate men for their own benefit. Matriarchy is a mindset - one that is not necessarily shared by people on the basis of their gender. Patriarchy destroys, and one thing it destroys is women being in touch with themselves.

So, men, if you want Matriarchy, you have to foster that mindset by taking a public stand to this effect. Enlightened women will appreciate you for it. Women who still live in patriarchal denial will not.
