How did April Masini know shed finally made it? She was attacked by Ms. Magazine.
It wasnt her achievements, her brains, her beauty, her accomplishments in business, show business, and life those things didnt mark April Masinis arrival in the ranks of American success, according to Ms. In fact, those things were a threat to Ms. and the feminist gang of ugly women who cant succeed, and dont just hate the men but also, the women, like Aprilwho do succeed.
I know, because thats how I met April. In early 2001, Ms. attacked both April and myself for embracing the reality that men are men and women are womenthat you cant fight age-old human nature. But the little-read magazine has become largely irrelevant to todays women. In fact, itand the radical movement of bra-burners and haters it representsis an obstacle to the success of women like April. And they resent that shes overcome that obstacle. They resent, also, the truths that wont go away, truths that April brings forth in this very perspicacious book: Men like good-looking women (like April). And they want to protect them. In short, men want to be the man in the relationship.
Unfortunately, Ms. and the movement it represents have one lasting legacythey sent men into a world of dating confusion: To open the door or not to? To pay for the date or not to? To call or be called? The questions and problems created by the feminist movementand its dangerous agenda of gender-role reversalare endless. But heres a reality check, encapsulated so well in Aprils dating guide for life: Women want and need the strong men who like them and are willing to protect them. That must be why Ms. attacked April for helping produce "Baywatch." It was only the most watched television show around the world for 11 years. But feminists knew better. Attractive women and strong, muscular lifeguards who protect and save themwe cant have that. Put the women in burqas and let them beat, dominate, and scare the men away.
The same issue of Ms. that attacked April Masini for her women are more successful than fat ones. It featured articles on lesbian fairy tales for kids and a transsexual scientist. A centerfold of an ugly woman in mens underwear with thick tufts of underarm hair, Ingrid Rivera-Dessult, accompanied the article, "Call Me Woman." Id call her many things, but "woman" isnt one of them. Ads for "Bitch Magazine," "feminist ecovillages," and one that asks "Ever dream of owning a womans sex toy store?" No, that wasnt my dream, but it must be for feminists wholl need a lot of toys, since theyll never have the genuine male article. You can see how April and her outlook on life are a strong threat to these strange characters.
The Ms./NOW/Steinem/Friedan agenda is a phony guide for men in how they should treat and interact with women. April Masinis book is the real thing.
Most women dont want sensitive, pseudo-gay, hen-pecked, metrosexuals who wont hold open the door, pay for dates, and take charge. We dont need or desire Mr. Moms. Yuck. Men, dont listen to that feminist propaganda put forth by the ugly, overbearing chicks who cant get a date. Take it from April. Whatever happened to the day when men took charge and knew how to court women? Ms. and the gang of other assorted feminists took it away. But April and "Date Out of Your League" are taking it back.
If you want to date women in combat boots, brush cuts, and WNBA clothing, then this book is not for you. But for everyone elsemen and women, alike, April Masinis "Date Out of Your League" is must reading.
