I think you misunderstand paternalism. It has nothing to do with men v. women: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paternalism

I don't see the paternalism in your previous statement either tho.

Ahh thank you. I thought paternal was just related to fatherly, from Latin. I did not realize it had a broader meaning.
