This recent question is a little baffling and very long-winded, but it seems OP's intended "question" is asking for advice, critique, or feedback on their construction of their matriarchy so far. Is this on-topic on Worldbuilding.SE? I usually live on Writing, where asking for critique or advice is off-topic. Is that the case here too?

  • $\begingroup$ I don't think it is. There is nothing specific to solve about that question it's more about discussion than. And it's really too broad if it's "this is my fictional world" (well, OK not the entirety of it but a pretty big slice). $\endgroup$ – VLAZ Nov 10 '19 at 21:42

OFF-TOPIC

Advice & critique are, of course, valid worldbuilding matter for discussion. Simply off-topic for this forum. Stack Exchange operates on the principle of one focused query gets focused responses. Generally speaking we try to play by SE's rules as best we can, while understanding that geopoesy as an artform in its own right or as an adjunct to story writing and gamesmithing simply doesn't fit the SE mold all that well.

Such questions as how-to's, advice, critiques and resources are best referred to long form discussion forums (CBB or Reddit).

If such a worldbuilding question was posed as a reality-check on a particular discrete portion of the setting in such a way that it did not rely solely upon personal opinion, and was not applicable only to the particular story or world in the question, and it could be asked without requiring potential answerers to read reams of material, then I'd say "Yes"... it would appear to be on- topic.

Agree with Elemtilas. Can be made on-topic if the question were presented as “here is a bullet point list of facts about my matriarchy. Are there any contradictions within this list?” That’s a specific, answerable question. Could also be on topic asking for list of historical matriarchies that could be used as a model given story constraint X. Note that just asking for a list of historical matriarchies is a question for the History stack exchange.
