Debated for about an hour tonight about some of the facets of shucking off the patriarchy, and there were a lot of ideas bandied about. The best metaphor of the evening compared the patriarchy to an old house. Yeah you could slap anew paint job on it or throw aluminum siding around it to preserve it for a generation, but if you really wanted to build your dream house, you’d gut it and save all the materials you could and redesign it from the bottom up.
