Matriarchal families may suit some men, confused by their role in life, untutored by a father, and feeling in need of guidance through life. It is sad that fatherlessness increases both the desire in females for a man who can lovingly lead and care, and a decrease in males able to fill that role.
What is dangerous is the matriarchal misandric family. Often supporting, if not a direct cause of, feminism, such toxic environments for males are the red-flag zones described by Ron Collins. Even the most submissive male will be in danger, for a submissive partner deserves care and love and the ‘matriarchal clan’ is not only gynocentric but uncaring of males.
