really liked it

Read from February 23 to March 16, 2012 — I own a copy

Truly this book got me thinking on many things, but some of the arguments started feeling a bit petty and redundant after a while. I get the idea of being thorough with examples and a need to show multiple cases where your hypothesis is proven, but I started feeling like I was reading the same thing over and over again. Most of it boiled down to the idea of noticing when ideological feminists propagate the idea that men are innately evil and/or the cause of all evil (woman are only victims or products of evil that comes from patriarchal bases), and that when watching movies and/or TV shows, have an eye for when all female characters are seen entirely as a victim and innocent while all male characters are flawed/inadequate and/or evil.

A good book to get some thoughts started about misandry, but not as powerful as I had thought it would be.
