Smashing the Patriarchy with Barton Guy Bryan

Maybe it is time for some Incredible Hulk action on the patriarchy. I wanted to get a white cis male’s perspective on the imbalance (because we haven’t heard enough from white men, right?) [eyes roll] – but really, what if we make them have a conversation about how privileged they are? I wonder if anyone will learn something from this. I hope so. I hope it serves to smash the patriarchy. I hope it serves to de-train you from the patriarchal programs that say if you’re a woman and you state your opinion you’re automatically a bitch. I hope it lightens your heart to hear that normal people like Barton and I are pretty certain the Patriarchy isn’t so great, and there are better ways.

More than anything, I hope it ignites a soul-fire in you to stand up for yourself, speak your truth, and live for what your heart beats for.
