    They experience their jobs and themselves as worthwhile only through priding themselves on the hard work and personal sacrifice they are making to be breadwinners for their families. There are revolutions in Riyadh and Delhi.

    Here domination gets, as usual, a religious blessing: Mother Eve, whose mission is powered by a drolly laconic voice in her head, has a theological blueprint for the new world order. Traditional relationships with women have provided men a safe place in which they can recuperate from the stresses they have absorbed in their daily struggle with other men, and in which they can express their needs without fearing that these needs will be used against them. Theo agrees, motivated by his feelings for Julian. If women begin to compete with men and have power in their own right, men are threatened by the loss of this refuge. She is nothing if not pragmatic, her utterances grounded in practicalities as well as learning Does this matter?

    Ultimately, we have to understand that patriarchy has two halves which are intimately related to each other. This division has powerful negative consequences for gay men and gives straight men privileges. Men are victims of violent crime twice as often as women and are "three times more likely to be murder victims". Drugs are developed to heighten the power, and porn created to fetishise it.
