Post-Patriarchy

"Culture is nothing but the realization of patriarchal fantasy." - Twisty Faster

I wrote:

Sometimes I like to sit around and play with watercolors.

I dig culture as patriarchy socialization, but I wonder at the relationship. Were we globs of intellectual happiness post-patriarchy, might we spend some of our time with watercolors? Our reality would be radically different, but would still be reality, and might not some spend their happy time reflecting the new reality? Would that be art, and would the art create and influence a culture?

Is culture necessarily socializing - or necessarily within a patriarchy? Or could they be pure without the perversion of power?


What do you think?
