The comment below was NOT approved for publication on my Finally, A Feminism 101 Blog. Free Clue, TrollDude – quoting Twisty Faster’s most infamous phrase ever is a big giveaway that you really just want to stir up a storm.
However, I thought some dissection of this absurdity might provide some general amusement.

Regarding “Patriarchy Theory”…. Are there any writings, discussions, or critiques of patriarchy theory coming from women who are Ph.D biologists?
When I read about the sexual dimorphism of animals, the sexual displays in the animal kingdom, the different behaviors of the various sexes in the animal kingdom, I start to think that what is “blamed on patriarchy” is more simply credited to evolution and behavior in Kingdom Animalia.
For instance, Bonobos engage in oral sex, or as Twisty Faster puts it, “funk filled bratwurst.” That’s not patriarchy.
In lion prides, females do most of the hunting, yet the males eat first. That’s not patriarchy.
Amongst Topi antelopes, the females are in heat one day every six weeks, and they harass the males for sex, to the extent that the males have to fight them off. That’s not patriarchy.
In many species, one sex is smaller than the other. One sex will put on mating dances, and mating displays. That’s not patriarchy.
Owls and other animals put on make up. That’s not patriarchy.
Capuchin monkeys, having been taught how to use money, promptly invent prostitution. That’s not patriarchy.
I am genuinely curious what biologists have to say about patriarchy, and I am curious what patriarchy blamers have to say about biologists.
Ah, don’t we love the smell of evopsych arsehattery in the morning?
