Overview

A hilarious romp by a popular conservative columnist

The four most common words a feminist uses are "I," "me," "my," and "mine." Feminists are the only people who actually use these words more in adulthood than they did when they were two years old.

Mike Adams-like P. J. O'Rourke and Christopher Buckley-understands that the best way to fight humorless liberals is to poke fun at them. And no liberal group is more humorless, or more in need of poking, than feminists on college campuses.

It might seem like professional suicide for a conservative male professor to ridicule feminists for their antics on campus. But Adams does just that, with hilarious results. In Feminists Say the Darndest Things, he writes to feminists around the country with many thoughtful questions, such as: Why did they build a sex toy museum in the middle of a campus and then file sexual harassment charges against those who criticized their indiscretion? Why do they write "scholarly" articles like the one suggesting that deer hunters are simply acting out fantasies of raping underage women? And why, after his column said that feminists are intolerant of free speech, did they respond by trying to get him fired?When the author's pen pals take the bait, they do a better job of making feminism look silly than any critic ever could.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Welcome to the Ivory Tower of Babel: Confessions of a Conservative College Professor, Adams lampooned liberals, campus radicalism and the academic left. At the outset of his second jaunt across the campus, the highly opinionated professor of criminal justice at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington explains his reason for targeting feminists: "I want to find out why they hate us." Unleashing salvos of sarcasm, he collects his correspondence addressed to feminist students, professors, activists and administrators, including some letters never mailed (probably for the best). Claiming that "feminist scholar" is an oxymoron, Adams asserts that feminists have no sense of humor, are the biggest censors on college campuses, lack the courage to act as individuals, engage in "widespread academic and personal dishonesty" and attempt to solve problems by changing society rather than their own behavior. Ridiculing "feminist-sponsored masturbation workshops," he notes, "Men are fully capable of masturbating without taking a seminar.... For campus feminists, it's another excuse to seek funding from the university administration." Adams's caustic survey of the "feminist worldview" is certain to stir up controversy when his conservative radio promotional campaign gets underway. (Feb. 14)

    Dr. Adams Introduces A New Sport

    I have just finished reading, 'Feminists Say the Darndest Things' by Dr. Mike Adams. It was a fun and lively read. I can especially recommend this book to three distinct groups of readers. The first group is composed on feminists and their supporters. Dr. Adams has given them a preview of how the battle for the hearts and minds of America's youth will be prosecuted in the future. If they expect to maintain institutional dominance they will have to take this book seriously. The second group is made up of citizens that would like to be more effective in their opposition to the institutionalized liberalism that dominates many campuses, businesses and government. I expect this group to grow rapidly in numbers now that Dr. Adams has shown us how much fun is involved. And finally, I recommend the book to the caring masses that I am sure will be immensely entertained by the new sport that Dr. Adams has introduced. The new sport is quite simple: 1) Identify a logically inconsistent public statement made by a powerful and well known feminist. Preferably, this statement will be in print or an audio/video recording. 2) Write them a letter asking them to explain themselves. Be polite. Use a basic vocabulary and simple sentence constructs. Include a touch of humor. 3) Wait an appropriate period of time to conclude that you will not be getting a response. This is the step were you keep score. 4) Publish the letter with your views on why you did not get a response. Don't forget the humor. Not everyone has a soap box as big as that of Dr. Adams, but anyone can start a blog, participate in online discussions and write letters to local newspapers. And to get the game started, I'm sure Dr. Adams would appreciate your help with current examples pertaining to step one, above. And don't forget the humor.
