Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

We’ve been duped.

We were raised to think we could have it all. In college we were told that men weren’t necessary. Pop culture told us that career—not family—came 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 women’s lives.

Bet your feminist teacher never told you:

* Women’s 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.

I really enjoyed this book and yes, this book is conservative, but a lot of the points it makes, while not "PC" really are true.

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.

Although there were a several things in this book that I disagreed with, the basic premise is that women (as well as men) need to be exposed to all the information that is out there in order to make an informed decision. The author believes that in many woman's studies courses, much important information is being withheld.

Thank you, Carrie Lukas! Thanks for coming out with an overview of feminism that "The Today Show", that liberal cable news channels, that public colleges, and that even women socializing with their friends will not admit: feminism is dangerous and deceitful.

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.

The information in this book is very solid and needs to be heard by women AND men -- especially those in high school and college. However, the book is full of very distracting typos that make it look like it was spellchecked instead of proofread. Sometimes it's even hard to interpret some of the sentences unless you stop and analyze two or more typos to try to get to the intended meaning. I hope the publisher comes out with a revised, corrected edition soon.

Lukas has one weird contradiction in the book, where she outlines devastating pitfalls of premarital sex, and then says none of the information should be construed to suggest that women should abstain until marriage. With the case she makes against premarital sex, it ends the chapter on an incoherent note, and she needs to make a case FOR premarital sex, if she wants her conclusion to make sense.

I wish this book would've been around when I was in my 20's. I enjoyed reading a more balanced approach to feminism. Lukas is not anti-woman, stuck in the '50's, or patriarchal as her critics have described. She's not telling women what they can or cannot do either. She's done her research and put the fact out there for your review. The biggest drawback for me was that it looks like a 3rd grader proofread the book.

The "Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex and Feminism" was the fourth book in that series, whose aim is supposedly to counter liberal bias in the media.

The book's essential argument is that women today have been duped by radical feminists into believing that they were the same as men and that they should aim for the traditional goals of family and a married life. The book, unlike most other Politically Incorrect Guides, does a very good job in this respect. It gives some quite reasonable statistic about how women who marry are happier than those who do not, and that there are a great many dangers from the casual sex so much supported by Sixties liberals. It also shows that many women do not want to work outside the home and that few are happier because of having to do so.

It also, though not to the extent that might be desired, shows that there is a lot of scientific evidence for innate sex differences. It is a pity that these biological differences are not related to societal considerations because there simply cannot exist doubt that belief in sexual identity is triggered by situations like those in Europe today where valuable resources are non-existent. In fact, the effects of these societal situations on sex roles may well explain why women in Europe or Canada probably do not have the same desire as women in the US. (The book never considers differences between the US and other countries and this constitutes a big fault of the whole PIG series that greatly dims its potential).

The book also has one strange lost opportunity because during Europe's own "culture war" during the early twentieth century - as shown by the childhoods of many people born back then like Simone de Beauvoir or Albino Luciani - women were far more socially conservative than men.
