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 careernot familycame 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.

I am66. My mother was happily married until her death at 82. She also worked. She pointed out to me that every woman needed to be able to provide for herself and her family because you can't predict what will happen in life. You might marry a great guy whose salary is sufficient--but that greay guy could dump you for someone youger and thinner or die in a car accident or end up sick or disabled. You have to be prepared, she said. That is what this nookdoesn't teach girls.
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.
Finally, a book that tells the truth! Most women AREN'T feminist men haters! However, just like in a barrel of apples...a rotten few can destroy it for everyone.
This book does a good job of debunking feminist myths that have brainwashed many young women. It is fun, yet substantive and succinctly written.
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.
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.
