Overview


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.

    Good As Far As It Goes ...

    All books of the P.I.G. series are meant to be controversial, and this will enrage extreme feminists. But those who care about the well-being of any young women (12--40) should agree that they deserve all the facts regarding such important decisions as sex, marriage, children, divorce, and career. This book isn't nearly complete in this regard, but is a plausible first step. Perhaps its best point is that organizations claiming to represent women's interests often try to conceal information not politically convenient for the groups. Unfortunately, the book does not cover some topics that would seem to be natural, e.g., health effects of contraceptives and the effectiveness (or not) of internet matchmaking services. Furthermore, the surprising number of printing errors undercuts many of the authors's good points, making me reluctant to give more than three stars.

    Every real man needs his wife to read this.

    Some men don't think that this book isn't about them. My wife make one a good dinner and the best darn american apple pie, and she no dummy. I would not allow her to think that.

    A good prespective from a sane voice.

    This book does a good job of debunking feminist myths that have brainwashed many young women. It is fun, yet substantive and succinctly written.

    Finially someone gets it right.

    I have been concerned that all is not well between men & women in the feminist world. This book puts into words many reasons for discomfort with feminist philosophy and gives a better understanding of what is wrong between men and women.
