Try doing a search here for hierarchy, primary, secondary and veto... etc. here. You will note that there is no positive to these terms at all. Some people are starting to use them in terms of family dynamics and owning a new approach to primary secondary, but any control over another, wielding authority over another, and owning people is just simply not okay ever. It abusive and destructive. I would suggest giving it one last haul to get your right for equality and if you don't get it, walk.
