Does it change anything?
Other than knowing that you won’t personally add to it?

It removes you from some exposure, I suppose. Allows you a reset in your personal relationships.
I don't think it would overturn patriarchy, unless all women joined. Even then I suspect we'd be enslaved rather than emancipated!

It seems a bit dramatic. And if you are heterosexual, depriving yourself of a loving relationship just to bring down the patriarchy does seem a bit like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
But obviously it is your free choice and plenty of people choose to be single.

At the end of the day what patriarchy wants most is to women to comply (ie. date men, marry them, have sex with them, bore children).
That's also what women want.
