Half right. I'm afraid of any one group, particularly one based on biology, having unilateral power. Therefore, for example, I would be equally afraid of women having more power than men.
You might be thinking, who is going to regulate the men? Men don't get pregnant, women do.
Women don't get pregnant through parthenogensis. It is YOUR attitude which omits men's role in procreation and separates pregnancy from conception that is the basis for the decline in the family. You unwittingly are in bed with pro-Choice feminists in this belief! You probably don't even recongnize that you'e supporting their viewpoint.
If biological lineage is important to "patriarchy", it makes no sense to only control 1/2 of the conception equation. This is illogic. Men who pro-create outside of marriage are equally to blame for the decline of the "family". But then, you illogically discard conception and focus only on the pysiological state of pregnancy which results. Odd logic for a patriarch.
Obviously, biological control of lineage is not the concern or you'd advocate strict control of males and females. Therefore you agenda seems to be control of females "just because" as in fundementalist countries where they stone women adulterers but not their partners in crime. Heaven's, even Jesus himself had a problem with this kind of hypocrisy!
That might be the case, but it is the only way to regulate a woman's natural sexual promiscuity, and the distruction of the family.
More illogic. A woman cannot be promiscous without a male or males willing to be promiscous with her! The math simply doesn't compute. (Unless you are referring to homosexual unions. But even there, men have women statistially beat. Males homosexuals are 15% of the male population, female homosexuals are 5% of the female population). Therefore, if heterosexual promiscuity is the benchmark as you suggest, males are equally to blame for destroying families since it takes on of each to commit a promiscous act! This is simple mathematics.
You unwittingly are in bed with pro-Choice feminists in this belief!
I think there would be a few that disagree with you there.
Please get a clue. Good night.
