Michele Lisenbury Christensen

We’re diving deep into how patriarchy gets into our relationships and messes with both partners, regardless of what gender everyone is.  This episode is a response to a beautiful letter from a listener.  I look forward to hearing your experiences.  What is the role of male privilege in your relationship?  How does psychological patriarchy affect the intimacy and aliveness in your relationship?  Listen in to hear how I define these terms and what a long-time male listener thought and felt when I said “smash the patriarchy” in an email about a prior episode.  



In this episode we talk about:

  • How psychological patriarchy differs from cultural patriarchy
  • What psychological patriarchy costs women… and what it costs men
  • The grave disservice I’d do in trying to help couples if I didn’t name the power imbalances our culture creates between men and women, large and small people, and people who earn more and their partners who earn less 
  • How privilege leads us to confuse “safety” and “comfort”

And more
