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.
Which demonstrates that the United States has class problems alongside gender problems. (Like most countries.)

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.
I doubt this is true.

To women:

Never argue with a man because he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
I don't know what this means.

But anyway, back to Kirk and Spock...
