People should not be fooled. Women can be just as patriarchal and phallocentric as men. No one loves their oppressor more than the oppressed. Here are some terms to know though:

Patriarchy-rule by men, male domination. Men may have an innate sense of superiority or authority.

Phallocentrism-power and/or language revolving arond the phallus(not the penis, but the phallus-which I will state is the symbol or image of the penis).

Phallologocentrism-male centered power and authority housed in language.
