Feminism has a very negative impact on the pedagogical operations of the academic institution. Feminism is a political ideology that negates a place of understanding from being a learning environment when feminists dominate the discourse. I have a tremendous amount of trouble accepting that university can continue to pander to feminism and also maintain the integrity of its foundation. We hear about "mansplaining" which is a popular feminist rhetorical device, but ironically, such reductionist stigmas and stereotypes is an apt characterization of feminism's intent to "femsplain". In the end, such explanations are not in fact explanations at all but are instead trite ideological babble dressed up as self-righteous proclamation.
Is the "Patriarchy" a legitimate concept or a floating signifier simply imagined through a perverse ideology? Let's have a look-see. In this piece, I suggest that the "waves" of feminism have been poorly conceived and that the Patriarchy is a concept that can only exist side-by-side with the Matriarchy.
N.B. The final line of this piece isn't about being a "rape apologist". Firstly, women are rapists and males are rape victims, often. But, I'm making this note because feminism loves a good straw man and will often attempt to deny the significance of female psychological violence simply on the grounds that physical sexual rape is worse. The latter is worse indeed, but it is fallacy to believe that one cancels out the other in any appreciable sense.
