Editorial Reviews

Review

"Like a blowtorch to the forehead." - Bay Area Reporter

"...required reading for young homosexual men looking for an alternative to disco balls, rainbow flags and celebrity gossip." - Just Out, Portland

"...a straight-talking Drill Instructor for today's gay generation, weaning them off pop divas and bear beauty pageants and licking them into a more manly, more self-reliant shape, ready to re-join the masculine fray." - Mark Simpson, British journalist who coined the term "metrosexual"

From the Publisher

Thank you for your interest in Androphilia: Rejecting Gay Identity, Reclaiming Masculinity by Jack Malebranche. As Jack notes in his introduction to the book:

"This book is being released by Scapegoat Publishing. Their advertising slogan is `Blame Us!' It's extremely appropriate in this case. Go ahead. Blame me. Insult me. Blackball me. I can take your hate. I don't need your love, your acceptance or your approval."

I approached Jack about this book because I thought his premise was right. Not only did I think he was right, but I felt that what he had to say was a challenge that should be brought against many of the presumptions that our society either holds to be true without dispute, or worse yet, has pressure groups that use emotional and political power to suppress any discussion that questions the status quo.

He calls into question stereotypes that exist about homosexuals. This stereotype is now one crafted by interested parties, instead of the bigoted views of Christian fundamentalists or disinterested outsiders. It's one that's often crafted in a similar way that products are marketed, to appeal and shine and often offer more than the product will ever be able to deliver. And that is a lie. Jack is not a stereotype, not a lifestyle enthusiast; he is a man who loves men.

As the publishers, we hope this book challenges many of the ideas it sets out to. We hope you approach it with a critical eye, as we recommend to anyone who reads anything of possible worth.
