This was brilliant! So sick of people not understanding what they are even saying by the word patriarchy. It’s so childish and ignorant. If you look up the definition of the term, the US barely falls under the defined points. What people probably mean to say is male dominance and other males get affected by that too, it has nothing to do with government structure or if the elderly male is the head of the household or lineage gets traced through the male alone. Sweden and Denmark consider themselves highly matriarchal and their rape crimes are much higher than places like syria and united arab emirates! Look at the countries on this list and Sweden and US are right up there with some the most equal rights in the world! https://www.wonderslist.com/10-countries-highest-rape-crime/
