We were raised to think we could have it all. In college we were told that men werent necessary. Pop culture told us that careernot familycame first. The idea of being a stay-at-home mom was for losers. And yet are we happier than our mothers or grandmothers, who grew up before women were "liberated" by the sexual revolution? For many women, the answer is no. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism, Carrie Lukas, a young career woman and new mother, sets the record straight: correcting the lies women have been told and slamming the door on the screaming harpies of NOW, feminist professors, and the rest of the bra-burners who have done so much to wreck womens lives.
Bet your feminist teacher never told you:
* Womens lib has "liberated" men from having to commit, "freed" women from marriage, and often "unshackled" women from having a family. * More than ever, women in their twenties and thirties live alone, are discarded by boyfriends after "living together," and are watching their biological clocks tick past the point of no return. * Women still prefer men who are breadwinners and can protect them physically.

If you have children who are young, get this book and read the chapters on sex and relationships. It makes excellent points about how "sexual liberation" really led to a lot of our girls getting used and tossed out and it doesn't speak much for our boys either if they are the ones doing it. And maybe some of the boys are getting used and tossed out too. Hey, a lot of parents fear for their children when they turn on the TV and see genital herpes treatment ads all over.
The section on fertility is also not PC, but sorry to say it is true. Women may have a lot more opportunity but that just doesn't change biology. Read this while you are young because you just cannot deny that you are less fertile at 40 than at 25. I wish the author had mentioned that when older women have to use fertility drugs due to late pregancy it often leads to multiple births of babies who are born premature and this is a heartwrenching situation for babies and parents alike. Remember NOW's outrage at the fertility awareness campaign in NYC? The problem was brought forward by fertility clinic workers noticing how many women were coming to them thinking they could get pregnant in their upper 30s-40s-50s, only to find out they had missed their chance. NOW's reply was that "women don't need anymore reminders about their fertility slipping away." Apparently they do. Why is NOW trying to deny fertility facts to women?
Other points that were very interesting were commentary on the "wage gap" (contrary to popular belief, the wage comparisons to do not compare men and women in the same jobs. They compare OVERALL earnings.Read more ›
Having grown up during the sexual revolution, and the then reformulation of feminism, I have become dismayed at the unintended consequences which have resulted to the hasty embrace of untested paradigms and rationalizations. While 60's and 70's feminism strove to liberate women from the tyranny of the hearth and paternalism, it often merely displaced them from one form of servitude (in the home) to an even more unfulfilling role as corporate drone or paid domestic worker.
The book highlight several studies and anecdotes which show young women with natural inclinations to: marriage, monogamous sexual relationships, and motherhood. In addition, many iconic feminists of years past are quoted as having afterthoughts and revised views contrary to the pro-lesbian, anti-male, radical feminism of recent decades.
True liberation may be more a matter of finding the greatest happiness, as a quarter-million years of human evolution have made us, than it is in following either outdated cultural traditions or the irresponsible pontifications of maladjusted blowhards.
And while more than one reviewer properly took the author to task for advancing a conservative-Republican political agenda, I think this obvious bias can be dismissed without negating the greater wisdom contained elsewhere in its pages.
The book not only helps free women to follow their intuitive bliss, it give men and boys cause to be more thoughtful and responsible in turn.Read more ›
Mrs. Lukas has the courage to say things like.... men and women's brains work differently (Chapter 1); casual sex is damaging to women both physically and emotionally (Chapter 3); safe sex is not so safe (Chapter 5); children of divorce suffer serious consequences from being raised by a broken family (Chapter 8); postponing childbearing may make the proposition of having children difficult or impossible altogether (Chapter 9); and - my personal favorite - research suggests that children with parents as primary caregivers are better off than those in full-time daycare, and that the government pushes families into using institutional daycare, which has been proven to be the worst form of childcare. Mrs. Lukas does not simply spew her opinions: a well-educated writer, she backs up her points with plenty of statistics and factual support. And she even pays props to opinions which oppose hers.
I wish I had Mrs. Lukas' courage to speak-out as unapologetically on issues in which I believe. I see so many women my age - in their mid 30's - buying into the lies that are detailed in this book. These women suffer, their husbands suffer, and their children suffer on a daily basis. Granted, bosses and professors and news anchors are happy. But consequences are being felt by families who choose to accept feminist rhetoric. I would highly recommend "The PIG to Women, Sex, and Feminism" to any sound-minded, truth-seaking woman.
