It’s About Ownership & Control – Not Earning Respect

The Patriarchy Explained
Part 2: Religious commandments applied
A woman shall not be the head of the man.

(Feel free to substitute BIPOC, minorities, or anyone cast out of the tribe for the word ‘woman’ and to use the phrase ‘THE MAN’, as in anyone in authority or a position of power.)

TRANSLATION:
Patriarchy is NOT about earning respect.

Instead, it is a misogynistic, militaristic, slave-owning social construct built on the concept of the ownership and control of underlings.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Underlings who must be in submission – devoted and loyal servants, expected to love, worship, honor, and obey …
… until death.

〰 ⚤ 〰

Something the Patriarchy will eagerly arrange for anyone whom the Dominant Male Group even suspects of noncompliance.
