Patriarchy is Rape Culture
Patriarchy is ideological disease, abusive by definition. By any other name, it is Rape Culture.
Patriarchal theologies are sociopathic — as psychopathic as corporate pyramids are, as prime examples of crushing, masculine-elite, hierarchical structures. Everyone and everything is exploited, given to the elite male ranks at the Creation, by the Creator, to own, rule and ‘manage,’ like the Earth and all of Her avails given unto Adam by ‘God’ in the Garden of Eden. It is straight-up (rank, offensive and fundamentally criminal) Cattle Cult ideology.
For examples, study the most extreme demonstrations in Sharia Law, Mosaic Law, and the more overt demonstrations of Fundamentalist Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, Christianity and Islam, where the underlying oppressive biases are laid bare. Study the statistics concerning child marriages in these communities, or their ‘traditions’ of criminal suppressions of women’s and children’s rights.
Or one can witness the ways in which women and children are reduced to the status of male property within the Three Main Orthodoxies, which is to say reduced to the status of chattel, which is to say ‘objects.’
Objectifying women and children, ‘Otherizing’ particular categories of people, as in racism, sexism or extreme nationalism, are the ingredients for the ultimate result of ideological disease, which is sociological disease and the legitimization of abusiveness toward and exploitation of suppressed individuals and groups.
