in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?

When you say live in a society which is not patriarchal... These to me would be signs that a society was not patriarchal.

Women can work/vote/hold office/get abortions/decide who to have sex with and who to marry -- not patriarchal by definition

I'm sorry, apparently I wasn't sufficiently clear. Let me try again in a different way.

Nope, you were clear the first time. You like to redefine terms, fill in imaginary blanks, and take offense ... the very definition of a feminazi

Great, now I learned a word Rush Limbaugh invented

    You proposed a hypothesis. I suggested experiments that would give us a binary yes or no answer about whether patriarchy existed in the situations outlined. You rejected them out-of-hand without explanation.

    You substituted an unverifiable set of assertions as defining "no patriarchy". So let me ask some questions to fill out my understanding of your vague definition.

    Does "can" mean "every woman is free to do so when and where she sees fit, with no limiting regulation or societal stricture"? I "can" possess marijuana, but I can only legally do so in a couple states in the US; elsewhere I may go to jail; this is an example of "can" with a limit. "Can" a woman get an abortion anywhere, without fear? (If you've seen abortion protests in the US, you'll understand what I mean.)

    Perhaps where you live is different from the US; in which case, good for you guys, and I hope we catch up sometime soon.

    If you do live in the US, I'm afraid we have irreconcilable perceptions of the amount of freedom and encouragement/discouragement women get here, and there's no point in trying to talk about this further.

      You proposed a hypothesis ...

      Obvious lie is obvious

        I think you are saying that you don't believe the conversation can continue productively. Agreed.
