    Yes, I believe feminism is good and patriarchy is bad, feminism basically talks about that women should have the same rights and equal opportunities as men in society have .whereas patriarchy talks about the social system that gives power and control to the man to make decisions for men and both, patriarchy is bad because it teaches men are superiors and has the liberty to do what they want. Patriarchy is followed in many Indian families it’s like if the head of the family makes some decision every other member of the family has to follow it without question even if it is wrong, because of this patriarchy women’s thoughts and voice is always suppressed. We have to end this patriarchy, one of the reasons for the feminist movement was also this, people have to understand this and make it clear that men and women have equal rights, men should be in control instead of taking control of women’s life. Women deserve equal pay and opportunities, women are not inferior, why always men get what they want easily and women have to fight for it. People have the wrong notion that feminism is only for women, feminism is meant for everyone. Patriarchy saying is man up don’t show your emotions, don’t cry like women. Why can’t men can express the emotions are they not humans. Its Women’s traits of being weak, this so wrong. Feminine qualities are valuable, important, and can be valid in every human.it is good because it benefits everybody and it is very necessary to bring change in people. Feminism helps to share the better relationships between men and women, both are much happy.it demanded that the media should change the representation of women and men. it also will helps men to rethink the patriarchal standards. That’s why think feminism is good.

    Patriarchy Is Bad and Feminism is Good. Your View?
    Patriarchy is basically the system that lays the base of the society and declares men of each family, head of the family. For example, in my family, my grandfather is the eldest in the male lineage, hence he is the head of the family. On the other hand, feminism is the theory that explains and advocates the rights of women and promotes equality of genders by uplifting the women of the society and bringing them at par with the men. Law says each and every individual is equal in the eyes of it. Then why does the patriarchal setup and system of the society see men to be higher in level as compared to women? I believe patriarchy is bad and feminism is good.
    The biggest loophole here is that patriarchy clearly supports the male gender and declares it to be superior to women, etc. On the other hand feminism uplifts women and levels their strata with that of the men in the society. It does not bring down men lower to women. Rather than demeaning any gender, I believe considering them all equal is a much better option and idea. Patriarchal mindsets of people have not only ruined women’s lives in households, but also in workspaces, out in the open, competition and politics. It is not only against law, but also against humanity. And this is what makes it clear that it is absolutely unacceptable.
    In the current times, our aims and goals should be to flourish as a society, as mankind, as the human race, and not as men and women. In order to make this happen, we will first have to level the top layer of the soil of our society. We will first have to make sure that each and every human, irrespective of their gender or sexuality, feels socially secure and the same as the others. Making someone feel inferior or superior to the people around them is clearly fuelling up the anger of and infuriating the people against each other. This will only break us up further and the dreams of becoming better leaders, citizens, and humans will be long gone by then. Hence, we must focus on feminism rather than patriarchy and understand that patriarchy is bad and feminism is good. Glorifying one gender will get us nowhere, glorifying the human race definitely will.

    I agree with the fact that patriarchy is bad and feminism is good. However, one may misunderstand feminism at times. Feminism represents women’s rights concluding from gender roles, but that is not the only thing. Feminism also expands the world for other gender roles and gives them space to express themselves in society.

    Patriarchy formulates the male gender to stay ahead in the community, but often things may not work as planned. Over time, patriarchy’s rules have traumatized women in society and have put men on pedestals too. Such behavior has released the proactive rape culture. For example, as per the rules of patriarchy, women who wear short clothes ask for sex or are desperate for sex. While the truth is it’s their choice, and other people do not have the right to pass judgments like this. Contrarily, feminism has allowed folks to outstand the rape culture by saying no or fighting back the bad behavior.

    Another reason why feminism is good is the option to improve yourself or develop one’s personality. Most of the time, patriarchy has endlessly been toxic to masculinity. The only difference is that some people do not resist, and a few others choose to stay in position because those men are safe.

    Patriarchy imposes negativity, oppression, suppression, and hatred that often surround hurt, leaving a psychological impact on both men and women. One of the benefits that men have achieved from feminism is that they can help the women in their families without following any stereotypes and can support themselves for society-opposing roles.

    Lastly, when we talk about patriarchy, we should talk about the devastation it has caused on both men and women. It is likely to consider patriarchy feminine and patriarchy masculine because as far as men play a role in suppressing women, vice versa can also take place.

    Patriarchy is something where the male is always put ahead and forward in the society, it is a system where the men of the society uphold the power and women are excluded from it. Whereas feminism is the movement run in order to bring women forward in the society where they’re constantly being discriminated and abused.
    Feminism was run in order to overcome the patriarchal society that was constantly discriminating women. Patriarchy is not bad, but it’s not needed in this society who already do not discriminate men but women are a constant victim of discrimination and abuse.
    In a society where men are already respected, patriarchy is a way of proving that masculinity is the best and nothing is above that, whereas feminism is just a mere way to bring women forward as equal as men.

    Yes patriarchy is bad and feminism is good. Patriarchy says how masculinity is seen as better, more respected and hold more privileges than women. Femininity says there must be equal respect for women like men in society.
    There are some features to the rules of masculinity that makes men feel uncomfortable in their own minds and personalities. What many feminist leaders raised issues for is that men should be more reflective, more practical and more introspective and to be more comfortable with being bring out of things that others may have an issue with .This aspect of feminism especially as it has evolved in recent years can help men understand that keeping up a personality of lot of masculinity is something that not only make others uncomfortable it can directly hurt those they love or care about the most. The many stereotypes of women being overly competitive with each other feminism has been developed around the community and solidarity being pertinent aspects of achieving self-love and self-care. It is much more important for feminists to create a strong community of open-inded and caring individuals. Feminists are more interested in developing a world that feels safe and comfortable for them.
    Therefore feminism is way good then patriarchy. It leads to equality and build up confidence in women.

    Patriarchy allows men to objectify women whenever and however they want; female sexuality is demonized, while male sexuality is praised. Patriarchy also allows for rape culture to prevail, in which women are often blamed for being raped because of the way they dress.
    Patriarchy demands that people stick to gender binaries which hurts both women and men. Because it’s based on lies. Some of them think like Men are not smarter than women. They are not better decision makers than women. They are not better leaders than women. They don’t have better judgment. Women are not inherently more emotional than men. They are not “just interested in different things.” The truth is better than lies. That’s why patriarchy is bad and the liberation of women is important. Good feminism is about making sure women have the ability to make informed, force choices. Choices about her body, choices about her education, choices about her career, all those sorts of things. The concept of feminism is very much needed, especially in the Middle-East and in India. The idea of feminism deals with the notion of establishing equality between men and women, and to break away the chains of male supremacy, toxic masculinity and patriarchy. We must acknowledge the fact that women were age old victims of male dominance. It required too many movements, speeches and articles to get our basic human rights like right to vote, education and to do job. But still, patriarchy is so deeply rooted in our society that females are killed/judged/ humilated /questioned for living a liberal and independent life. Feminism should start at home itself and this involves the cooperation of both men and women. A man can contribute to to feminism by helping his mother or sister or wife in doing the household chores like washing utensils or washing clothes or cooking. Women can contribute to feminism by making sure that she is respected , otherwise there is no reason for her to respect the man who doesn’t respect her. Breaking stereotypes of men and women about what they can do and what they cannot do or what they should do or what they shouldn’t do, is very important, because men and women both deserve equal rights , equal pay at work and mutual respect for each other. Feminism can only be a success then we focus on basic human rights in spite of caste creed, gender, colour ,nationality, etc.

    I feel feminism is better than patriarchy as our society needs a change. Since ancient times we have seen the trend of patriarchy. considering males as the best feature on this planet and always dominated women in every field. but now there must be a change in order. There are many advantages of having society were female dominates and even this idea is excepted worldwide. Feminism not only shows empathy and sympathy which are an essential part of ethics when she is working in any field.
    She creates her distinct identity even experts say that if more and more women will be engaged in jobs total GDP of the world will be likely to increase.
    There will no feeling of competition and jealousy as feminism creates the situation of safety and comfort, this will enhance the situation of status quo where will be peace and no one will be dominated by other and more likely feeling of an inclusive society. The violence against women will also come to an end. There will be no feeling of fear and all will be freer. Enhance the concept of gender equality patriarchy is rough there only one power dominates and no one cares about other whereas in feminism there is the feeling of equality.
    It creates a world of fear and also harmful to the social, political, and economic environment. there is much tribal society in northeast India where they have a stronghold on feminism. Patriarchy also encourages terrorism and muscle power. Our society must give the chance to women to hold the society and enhance it more. It’s always better to have a change and explore it for our betterment.

    Yes I do agree that feminism is good and patriarchy is bad. Feminism uplifts the personality of the women whereas patriarchy restricts someone’s identity to unfold in a manner they want to bloom. A patriarchy is an orthodox rule which is just ruining the whole societal environment. Contrary, feminism is showing new ways to accept the humans in equal manner and give the freedom they want to choose for themselves. Women are being taken seriously due to the emerging concept of feminism.
    A male is not everything and women should not be dependent on them for their basic rights and needs. In India there are 50% of the household still holds patriarchy very firmly, and they are very proud to oppress their own women’s by destroying their life and career.
    Feminism supports equality for everyone. We all should be a feminist. Nobody should be ashamed for being a feminist because it is the rage that we want our future generations to embed in their society.
    A System which is outdated and old should be thrown out of our society to avoid the negative impacts and the consequences due to patriarchy. High time that everyone just break the barriers interwoven in patriarchy for, to grow and evolve for the betterment.
    Men and women are important aspect of the society. They need to function in abreast to make the world a better place to live in, and provide them the basic rights and opportunities equally. Let people succeed in liberation, and we will surely have a fantastically positive outlook to look at life.

    PATRIARCHY IS BAD AND FEMINISM IS GOOD. YOUR VIEW?
    Firstly, both are different concepts but in both women are the ones who are considered in positions, in Patriarchy women face discrimination, comparison, and oppression and in Feminism, women are supported and are given equal rights as men.
    In a patriarchal society, men are considered as apex or in top positions or superior to women in every aspect like social, personal, economic, etc. It’s a male-dominated society where each right or power or decision is in the hands of men as a priority and women here are considered inferior and not given that equality in anything. So, these women are not in a position to decide for themselves whether it’s personal or social life.
    Feminism on the other hand is the right where women should be given equal opportunities and powers the same as men’s. This concept doesn’t make men or women any gender in a superior position instead it makes both equal for their rights. It’s for protection and equality of rights for women and girls also in case of domestic violence or sexual assault.
    So we can conclude that both are opposite in nature but feminism is an attempt to change the thoughts and ideas on women where they were considered as inferior and less than men. So, feminism is good because it brings something positive and in favor of everyone.
