"Are feminists really trying bring back patriarchy?"
Not sure what feminists are actually trying to achieve. But for any woman who wants the patriarchy back, it's too late!
"No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."
That quote came from prominent feminist Simone de Beauvoir in her interview with Betty Friedan on June 14, 1975. It looks like the feminists won and we are now living in their vision of the future for women.
Their efforts to change the narrative of history is what keeps all women in a double-bind. Feminism tells them that men "oppressed" them throughout all of history. And that the natural state of men is to dominate and oppress women. Most women today now believe some version of that as they have been indoctrinated in mainstream feminism for their entire lives now from school age to adulthood by corporate elite Establishment financed feminism.
So even if women naturally desire the traditional arrangements, their indoctrination places doubts on their natural inclinations.
The future in the West depends on how everything plays out. For a few generations at least, everyone is on their own. Everyone must work for themselves. And female hypergamy will continue to restrict the supply of good men for the more successful women, all up a sliding scale. We really are in new territory.
Ultimately though the "patriarchy principle" (one woman for every man in a monogamous relationship) is the only one that has worked to facilitate civilized society. It's debatable if p0rñ and video games can quell future males enough to prevent a mass movement of unrest when there is no real benefit or motivating factor for men to act civilized and participate in a civilized system. Not sure how that's going to look. Most of us won't be here for that.
