The simple facts that my public library couldn't locate a single copy for me to borrow [!] on interlibrary loan AND the fact that I almost died from a DVT/PE while climbing the steps to the local women's college to check their collection/borrowing-privileges should tell you enough! Get it. Read it.

Feminist academics receiving immunity to criticism is the issue here but dogmatic scientism isn't really an alternative to groupthink. Science is a collective activity dealing with aggregated data, you're always going to be faced with institutional rackets.

Thoroughly enlightening and scary, further evidence that equality, in the realist terms, is all about who can be more vile to others,dogmatically;rather than building up individuals, as is professed in ideology. I came to the impression that pundits, whether MRA or Feminist, are the problem with modern equality, and villainizing is often done best by actual villians. It also seems to me that the arguments and data from this book are well received by almost any who read it, except again those wit ...more

The second in the misandry series focused on how legal institution is promoting misandric double standard and hypocrisy. A much better improvement from the first book with various shocking facts about the ideological feminism destroying family and lives.

I read an unedited draft copy. Disturbing and provocative how insidious this is.
