Prof Sommers illuminates Woozle after Woozle (Google The Woozle Effect) and slays them as the sacred cows that they are. From false but HIGHLY emotive claims about Domestic Abuse/Violence, Rape, Anorexia. It leaves you with an impression that there is a segment of the US population who are seen as Gullible in the extreme and open to control by false reporting.
The dismantling of claims around Rape Culture, (Chapter 10), and how Ms Magazine (Read Steinem + Mary Koss) created a reality they wanted and then propagandized is so significant. It also resonates with the present day situation in US Academic Venues where people accused of rape have lost the basic right to a Fair and Valid Trial and even the Presumption of Innocence. The issues of gender stereotyping and abuse on Campus go on and on with litigation averse administrations made malleable to false truths. When you read Sommers work and then see what has happened over the following 20 years it leaves you bemused as to how it has been possible.
I would very much like to see this book updated and revised to address the last 20 years.
In this book, Dr. Sommers, a woman, is allowed a forum with both breadth and depth that men are not allowed. Dr. Sommers has become a spokeswoman for men and their issues that are not allowed free and open discussion in major media or in our universities. Feminism has been given the only voice, a monologue in what should be a dialogue. Dr. Sommers opens the dialogue. Being a woman she is allowed the forum men are denied.
Dr. Sommers, a former radical feminist, had her epiphany moment with the birth of a beautiful baby boy. The resultant discrimination against that innocent babe merely because of gender has made Dr. Sommers a reluctant but highly intelligent and motivated anti-feminist. Dr. Sommers still claims to be a feminist, yet skewers feminist myths, lies, violence and frauds as if she were the most truly victimized, impoverished, and disenfranchised activist MRA.
I am openly respectful of someone whose intelligence can overcome an ideology of vitriolic hatred against one half of our population, men, and speak publically on topics which few will allow men to discuss. Not only has she overcome the blind bigotry, she has become a major voice for men who have lost children, homes, family, career, liberty, and even lives in the very tragic and lopsided war against men.
