It’s not in dispute that we live in a patriarchy.

I think you’ve confused agency with victimhood. And by your own admission, you can’t have agency, because you’re a woman victimized by the patriarchy on a daily basis. If you were to choose agency over victimhood, you’d be spending your time contributing to making society better for all. You don’t seem to have much in common with the types of people who do that — true leadership forms bridges between opposite ends of a spectrum. Leaders have integrity so that those people from different perspectives trust them to be in charge of architecting that bridge. That’s what solving problems looks like.

What you do is masturbatory and tedious, indulgent and harmful. All you have to show for yourself is a blogging platform that serves as a shallow echo chamber of like-minded participants who are all regurgitating the same vitriolic click-bait back and forth in a never-ending feedback loop of agreement. There’s nothing original about your point of view, and there’s nothing you can point to that even remotely begins to articulate a way out of the snakepit you’ve helped to amplify. That’s not leadership, it’s narcissism.

Patriarchy:

Social organization marked by the supremacy of the father in the clan or family, the legal dependence of wives and children, and the reckoning of descent and inheritance in the male line.

Agency:

In the social sciences agency refers to the capacity of the individual to act independently and to make their own free choices. By contrast structure refers to those factors which seem to limit or influence the opportunities that individuals have.
