There are those of us who believe that society needs to return to traditional values and to reëstablish traditional institutions. There are even those of us who believe that we need to return to patriarchy.
It is of course quite legitimate to ask why we should return to the values and practices of the past. In the case of patriarchy the answer is very simple. We need patriarchy because women are miserable without it.
Feminism is a social experiment that began in the 19th century. For more than a hundred years we have tried pretending that men and women are essentially identical. We have tried pretending that women are capable of doing all the jobs that men used to do. We have tried pretending that women will be happy if they behave sexually the same way men do. We have tried pretending that higher education for women is a good idea and we’ve tried pretending that degrees in women’s studies, sexuality and advanced basket-weaving are just as valuable as degrees in medicine and engineering. We have tried pretending that women make splendid political leaders. For more than a hundred years women have been pandered to. Women were already privileged under patriarchy but now they have been given countless additional privileges.
And what is the result? Women are angry and miserable. They are much more angry and much more miserable than they were half a century ago, or a century ago. A large proportion of women today are so miserable they cannot function at all without taking a handful of antidepressants every day.
The fact is that when we lived under a system of patriarchy everyone was happier, including women. Especially women. This is is hardly surprising. The essence of patriarchy is that men and women are different and will therefore find happiness by accepting different social rôles.
Women were also happier under patriarchy because there weren’t any male feminists in those happy days. The truth is that women are disgusted and sickened by male feminists. Women do not like girly-men. Women like and admire men who behave like men, just as men like women who behave like women. It’s almost as if biology is real!
For the sake of women’s happiness we need to return to patriarchy now.
