Lunchtime LOL: The Patriarchy is Apparently Dead

by Kat Hamilton

This morning, I started my day with a chuckle after stumbling upon New York Magazine’s “39 Things We’ll Miss About the Patriarchy, Which is Dead“. The article came as a response to Slate Magazine’s piece “The Patriarchy is Dead” (subtitle: Feminists, accept it.) (sub-subtitle: ugh, gross.)

Check out a few of the things New York Magazine says they will miss the most about the dead-and-buried patriarchal structure:

1. The 200 abortion restrictions passed since 2011, closing 58 (or roughly 1 in 10) clinics.

3. “Bikini bodies”; “baby bump debuts”; and “post-baby bodies.

6. Labiaplasty.

12. Anal-bleaching cream!

13. Being called sluts.

14. Having no friends because we’re sluts..

31. Revenge porn.

34. Purity balls.

38. “We Saw Your Boobs

39. TitStare
