Book Description

A hilarious romp by a popular conservative columnist 

The four most common words a feminist uses are "I," "me," "my," and "mine." Feminists are the only people who actually use these words more in adulthood than they did when they were two years old. 

Mike Adams-like P. J. O'Rourke and Christopher Buckley-understands that the best way to fight humorless liberals is to poke fun at them. And no liberal group is more humorless, or more in need of poking, than feminists on college campuses. 

It might seem like professional suicide for a conservative male professor to ridicule feminists for their antics on campus. But Adams does just that, with hilarious results. In Feminists Say the Darndest Things, he writes to feminists around the country with many thoughtful questions, such as:
  • Why did they build a sex toy museum in the middle of a campus and then file sexual harassment charges against those who criticized their indiscretion?
  • Why do they write "scholarly" articles like the one suggesting that deer hunters are simply acting out fantasies of raping underage women?
  • And why, after his column said that feminists are intolerant of free speech, did they respond by trying to get him fired?
When the author's pen pals take the bait, they do a better job of making feminism look silly than any critic ever could.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel: Confessions of a Conservative College Professor, Adams lampooned liberals, campus radicalism and the academic left. At the outset of his second jaunt across the campus, the highly opinionated professor of criminal justice at the University of North Carolina–Wilmington explains his reason for targeting feminists: I want to find out why they hate us. Unleashing salvos of sarcasm, he collects his correspondence addressed to feminist students, professors, activists and administrators, including some letters never mailed (probably for the best). Claiming that feminist scholar is an oxymoron, Adams asserts that feminists have no sense of humor, are the biggest censors on college campuses, lack the courage to act as individuals, engage in widespread academic and personal dishonesty and attempt to solve problems by changing society rather than their own behavior. Ridiculing feminist-sponsored masturbation workshops, he notes, Men are fully capable of masturbating without taking a seminar.... For campus feminists, it's another excuse to seek funding from the university administration. Adams's caustic survey of the feminist worldview is certain to stir up controversy when his conservative radio promotional campaign gets underway. (Feb. 14)

Format:Hardcover
Dr. Mike Adams is a skilled author and a true satirist, and his latest book is written in the spirit of Jonathan Swift. Adams uses words like rapiers (warning to feminists: rapier is to rape as niggardly is to ... well, to the "n" word - i.e., they don't mean anything like the same thing). This bad pun (mine) is something akin to the real skewering Dr. Adams gives to feminist individuals - and the feminist movement - that are making our college campuses today less fun - and far less instructive - than they've been in the past. Would that there be more honest "insider" assessments of the world of the Ivory Tower today - and, perhaps, fewer "true believers" intent on imposing their views on the world, whether the world wants them or not.

You've heard the expression, "I couldn't put this book down." I feel that way - since it arrived from Amazon on Monday, the book has been my constant companion - I've read it at red lights, waiting in line at the drive-through, in my doctor's office (waiting for my annual physical) and over several meals. It is episodic enough to be read in brief snatches, yet compelling enough to stay by your side - like a bag of potato chips you can't put down - until it's finished. If, like me, it left you wanting more, I suggest Dr. Adams' first book, "Ivory Tower of Babel," or his regular column at Townhall.com: [...] However, as much as I liked his first book (hint: a lot) and his regular columns (ditto), I like this latest book even more. It is hard-hitting, to the point ... and relentless in it's successful quest to skewer feminists with their own words.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Satirical View of Those Who Are Deadly Serious May 10, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In FEMINISTS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS, Mike Adams, a tenured professor of criminology at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, takes a satirical poke at feminists, a collective that he sees as totally lacking in even an iota of humor. And that, Adams urges, is precisely the point. Feminists are seen as locked into a bear hugging mindest that has little to do with equal pay for equal work and everything to do with issues that are the sole preserve of the liberal left. His book is a collection of articles that he had published for the campus newspaper and their brevity cuts both ways. On the plus side, Adams can draw an indelible portrait of a campus feminist who can literally not see one micrometer beyond the range of her limited logic. On the down side, such brevity appeals more to those who delight in such Swiftian jabs but less to those who prefer more sobering and detailed examination of an issue that simply cries out for extensive analysis.

It is hard for many readers to accept that a long time ago, Adams himself was once part of the very tribe that he now punctures with his dry wit. When he was originally hired as a non-tenured professor, he was both a leftist and an atheist. As the years passed, he changed incrementally, but until he was granted tenure, he dared not speak out. But now he dares, and in books like this one, he sees feminists as the antithesis of what higher education should be. The problem with devoted feminists is not that they are sometimes wrong or even perpetually wrong, but their wrongness lies in their willingness and eagerness to go on the attack even against all logic or fairness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Adams Charges! May 26, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This collection of letters addressed to the Feminists in Academia is an extraordinarily bold endeavor by Dr. Adams who must feel like a canary in a room full of cats. The only problem is, unbeknownst to the cats, this canary has fangs! Dr. Adams mocks the hypocrisy of the feminist movement in our institutions of higher learning with his unique blend of humor and razor sharp wit. In what must be extremely acerbic confrontations in what can only be described as (ironically) a hostile environment for him, Dr. Adams pulls back the curtain to reveal the man (or woman in this case) pulling the levers and pushing the buttons. He entertains, educates and gets a little comeuppance in the process. A superbly entertaining read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminist Say The Stupidest Things September 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is great for anyone who would like some insight into the feminist mindset. It was a great read. I read Mike Adams articles when they are published and - since reading his writings, he has never failed to provide me with additional information that would have not been readily apparent. The finally chapter - alone - is well worth it. I actually cried, it was that moving. But - then, again - I am female.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satirical January 9, 2012
Format:Hardcover
A few months back, Saturnay Night Live did a comedy skit involving the economic relations between China and the US; SNL was criticized because---of all things---some of the economics mentioned were off. It was a comedy skit, people! Come on!

The same thing can be said for this book. It's a satire, folks! It's supposed to put a smile on your face (except for the feminists who, if they try to smile, their faces will crack). If you want a detailed evisceration of feminism check out the works by Sommers and Paglia and Genovese-Fox (all of them women, BTW). So, criticism of this book on the basis that it is not a scholarly work, is absurd. It is a fun book, poking fun at those hate-filled fanatics (and their sycophants), who desperately need to be ridiculed, so their hatred can be diluted (and speaking of hatred, check out the reviews here of those who did not like the satire).
