'Cause women as the beneficiaries of patriarchy don't make no sense.
Who says society is patriarchal?
I can't tell if you're joking or not.
But if not, patriarchy is defined broadly by Mirriam -Webster as "control by men of a disproportionately large share of power".
Figures for the labor force
and political representation
suggest that the United States fits this definition.
By golly, men lead in permanent unemployment status also.
There's a saying:
Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
Interesting to note:
Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a successful man is usually another woman.
Never argue with a man because he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
