The War Against The War on Feminism

The book Women Who Make the World Worse : and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports seems to be a bunch of crap. I only say "seems to be" because I haven't read it, though I did read the summary of it. But the review of it by "Gen. JC Christian, patriot" is beautiful. Click Read More to see a quote of it.

Mrs. O'Beirne avoids the most dangerous feminist myth of all, January 10, 2006
Reviewer: Gen. JC Christian, patriot (Tremonton, UT United States)

I found many truths in Mrs. O'Beirne's book, truths so self-evident that I have to wonder why no one has stated them until now. For instance, how could anyone argue with her assertion that feminists exploit female war casualties to "advance the feminist agenda of androgyny and abortion." Even I have to admit that every time I hear that another woman has been sacrificed in our glorious Iraq adventure, I'm tempted to tell my wife, Ofjoshua, to throw on a pair of jeans, head for the nearest women's health clinic, and help them slaughter a whole passel of blastocyst-Americans.

But I think it's her frequent attacks against the television show, "Sex in the City," that I value most about this book. By promoting the myth that women should enjoy sex, that show has done more to destroy the institution of marriage than even homosexual unions. I think most men will agree with me when I say that there isn't a woman alive who isn't thoroughly repulsed by sex. Telling them that it should be a pleasant experience rather than a vomit-inducing one only serves to cause them to resent their husbands when the impossible isn't delivered. Hopefully, this book will help destroy that myth.

As much as I enjoyed this book, I can't give it more than a single star because it has a fatal flaw. It promotes the most destructive myth of all, the existence of lesbianism. Mrs. O'Beirne discusses it throughout the book as if it is something that is real. She doesn't seem to be able to understand that women can't have sex with each other. They don't have little soldiers.

I love sarcasm & irony. They're just not used enough or correctly.

Most of the "reviews" on the Amazon site are nothing more than personal attacks on the author. I read the book, and between the statistics and the actual comments made by feminists, the book is very well-researched and well-cited. I would suggest that you read the book yourself.

Toy Soldier,

Thank you for your comment. While I certainly do not have an aversion to reading things I "assume" I won't agree with, I don't think I'll be putting this on my reading list any time soon (unless I can check it out of the library).

When I said that it was probably a bunch of crap I was basing that on relatively objective summaries and not the Amazon Reviews.

I am aware of the nature of those reviews, my posting of it was more of an amusement on the use of irony and sarcasm - not so much a condemming of the book itself.

But I would in no way dismiss any dissenting opinion on feminism or the points this author makes.

Thanks again.
