“If you don’t believe in patriarchy theory, you’re not a feminist.
“If you believe in patriarchy theory then you believe that men, throughout history, ‘oppressed’ their wives, mothers, sisters and daughters in ways comparable to racism and classism. Except that, obviously, men oppressed their relatives rather then an ethnic, racial or cultural other.
“If you believe men are capable of creating a system expressly for the purpose of oppressing the people they have their most intimate relationships with then you believe men are sociopaths.
“How are men supposed to work with a group of people who deny their humanity?”
