I had no time to post my main argument as I was busy with family during Christmas, so I will post it here.

The reason I say that the United States is not a Patriarchal Society is that there is no right a man has in the United States that a Woman doesn't. If anything, women have more advantages in society. 84% of court cases involving divorce result in women winning custody of the child. 97% of combat deaths since the 1st gulf war were men. 80% of suicide victims are men. 93% of industrial deaths and accidents are men. 76% of homicide victims are men. The average prison sentence for the same crime is 2.7 Times higher for men.

With all this in mind, how can a Patriarchal Society in the U.S. exist, especially when compared to third world countries, where actual patriarchies exist?

The "patriarchy" is an invention of the postmodernist-feminist-leftists, who need to create a bogey-man to validate their victimhood and hatred of themselves (which like all internalized hatred is projected out as resentment). Prepare yourself for a fact free debate as feelings are put center stage. The great female figures of the past (true emancipaters) who achieved in their fields, through their own talent and hard work must be turning in their grave at the latest crop of self-entitled, resentful, bitter, badly educated, non entities parade as the modern intelligentsia.
