Now, I’m no political theorist and I am aware of the technicalities that I am navigating here when I make my first claim that the United States is a patriarchal society. There is little concern regarding the strict definitions or historical understandings that may allow for us to define the US in other ways. That said, the main focus of my public writings will be an examination of patriarchy from the perspective of a self-identified man of color in the a large northeastern city of the US. My stance is unapologetically anti-patriarchal.
