Men being uncivil is not “the patriarchy”, it is the breakdown of the patriarchy. It is men being freed from the constraints which the patriarchy put upon them.
The left-wing feminist politics she advocates are the primary cause of this breakdown.
As an example of the old order, Free Northerner cites Samuel Proctor, who tipped his hat towards a woman and had this to say when she asked what he meant by that gesture:
Madame, by tipping my hat I was telling you several things. That I would not harm you in any way. That if someone came into this elevator and threatened you, I would defend you. That if you fell ill, I would tend to you and if necessary carry you to safety. I was telling you that even though I am a man and physically stronger than you, I will treat you with both respect and solicitude. But frankly, Madame, it would have taken too much time to tell you all of that; so, instead, I just tipped my hat.
And now we are free of such outdated notions.
