For the sake of brevity and in respect of copyright, I will show only particular highlights from the book which either resonated with, or got me to think. I couldn’t recommend this book enough, especially if you think feminism is about “equality”.
Even my grandmother got her BA from a great co-ed university in 1920. But to hear the media tell it, you’d think liberal women are the only ones who ever went to college and made something of their lives. (7)
This gave me pause. Because up until my initial reading of this, I thought women were pretty much second class citizens back then, as most indoctrinated lefties are taught growing up. But to get a degree in college, all on your own? Hmm. Doesn’t sound too oppressive to me. She probably just made that part up though. You know Nazis.
Millions of Americans think progress requires women’s liberation—from men, from children, from society’s constructs, from just about anything that makes women feel morally obligated to someone or something other than themselves. The saddest part of this misguided view of human nature is that it hasn’t made women any happier. In fact, it has done just the opposite. According to a 2007 report from the National Bureau of Economic Research, “As women have gained more economic freedom, more education, and more power, they have become less happy.” (14)

Well, goddamn. Thanks, feminism. Ya know, I could give you guys shit for, “oh but what about circumcision, the draft, divorce, alimony, suicide, etc.” But what the hell do I need to do that for? You guys clearly aren’t capable of doing what you claim to be setting out to do. It’s a good thing women’s rights, equality, diversity, and all that whoreshit isn’t really your fuckers’ goal, huh? It’s Marxism.
The Women’s Studies department at Miami University in Ohio also makes clear that its courses are organized around radical feminist theory. To earn a degree in Women’s Studies, the first requirement for the senior thesis is that it “must incorporate feminist perspectives.” (17)
Well that’s fairly frightening. I’m a slippery slope kind of guy, so if there’s one bad apple, I tend to look at the whole tree funny. Something tells me that all social science classes in one way or another, whether the professors even mean to let it happen, try and indoctrinate students into this overtly Leftist, Machiavellian, postmodernist outlook on reality.
Gloria Steinem opined on CNN that it is “clear that there is profound sexism.” She whined that Hillary couldn’t crack the “glass ceiling” because there are “still barriers and biases out there” and bemoaned that women find it “difficult to be competent and successful and be liked.” (23)

I have nothing to say to that, really. I just thought I’d share it, because I thought it was hilarious. I suppose I can say the same thing if they don’t elect Ben Shapiro. “Oh, wow. What a Leftist matriarchy we live in. Sorry, guys. Looks like Ben couldn’t uncuck all of America, guys.” I mean, I can say something like that. Of course, I’d be one stupid fuck if I did.
Feminism is a branch of socialism, or collectivism, which draws on a sociopolitical movement that attempts to create a stateless society in which policy decisions are pursued in the (supposed) best interest of society. Feminism, like Communism, depends on hypothesizing an oppressed class. “Feminism found common cause with Communist ideology. Breaking up the family was not incidental but central to that ideology,” wrote journalist and author Kathleen Parker in her groundbreaking book Save the Males. (28)
Lies, Mesh! Don’t believe these lies, son! She’s deceiving ya! It’s prop of my ganda, mah boy, ya son of whore.
Between 1943 and 1999, the age of first intercourse dropped from nineteen to fifteen for females. During the same period, the percentage of sexually active women rose from 13 percent to 47 percent. Between 1969 and 1993, the percentage of female teenagers and young adults having oral sex skyrocketed from 42 percent to 71 percent. But the most dramatic development is young women’s beliefs about premarital sex: In 1943, only 12 percent approved of it; by 1999, 73 percent did. (58)

I actually stopped reading for like five minutes and just sat there. Even reading it now as I type this, I just can’t fucking believe it. Keep checking back on this post, people. I’m going to keep adding onto it.
