Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Perhaps it was inevitable that equal time should have been granted to those who claim that modern popular culture is biased against men. Nathanson (Over the Rainbow: The Wizard of Oz as a Secular Myth) and Young (religious studies, McGill Univ.) use an extensive appendix of antimale bias in film, television, and even greeting cards to show that in the past ten years, the pendulum has swung too far. Equally challenging is their notion that academic elites (i.e., feminist idealogs) are to blame. The problem with their approach is twofold. The potential examples of both misogyny and misandry probably run nearly neck and neck in film, television, and music today. Moreover, it is in the very nature of these media to describe conflict, especially gender conflict, as their core subject matter. The entertainment beast is such that somebody has to be the bad guy excuse me person, and hence the authors' sincerest wish that Hollywood end the war between the sexes is not likely to be fulfilled. Academic libraries may want to add this title to balance their collections in the interest of rigorous academic fairness.

    I am Man, Hear Me Roar

    Fabulous book. Important book. Liberates men from the culture of hatred fostered by the most extreme wing of feminism. Doesn't bash women, but says we need to recognize man-hating stereotypes if the battle of the sexes is ever to end in a group hug. Forget Women are From Mars, yadda yadda. Read this book.

    So many people don't understand Misandry. Others feel that taking any problem of men seriously is None-Feminist

    This book is for those who seek to understand what Misandry is, and how it's expressed in Pop Culture, Media, Movies and TV. Those who wish to see how much Misandry is now in Feminism.

    This tells that Feminists believe that men can be ridiculed without reprisal - professional or personal. Shows how they Look Down On and Laugh At men.

    That Misandrists Blame men for all of Human suffering. How they've reduced all of history to a Titanic Conspiracy of Men to Usurp Women's Power.

    That Feminists have created a new Double Standard, by Dehumanizing and Demonizing men. How they exemplify Female Sexuality, while condemning Male Sexuality. How some consider any form of Hetero Sex to be rape, even if a female initiates it. How they claim that God is neither Male nor Female, yet maintain that the Devil is Male.

    This gives the mechanics, or formulas, of Misandry in movies and TV, then gives powerful examples. Once you know what to look for, it's undeniable.

    To sum up. This shows that Misandry has taken on a life of it's own. That Misandry is not a reaction to, or limited to, misogyny. That Misandry is a massive psychological assault on all males - from earliest childhood to the grave.

    about time

    A good book, worth a read. Gets a little repetative at times, but that's just the authors' way of proving their point. I have to take exception with the 'critic's review' by Jeff Ingram. He criticizes the book's view on misandry by saying Misandry and Misogyny exist neck and neck. He failed to see the point the authors' were making - that feminists deny that misandry exists at all. Most (if not all) media attention is focused on misogyny. Name the last time you saw a news story on violence against men (it does happen). Look at the cover of any men's fitness magazine, think that's an attainable body image? Think we'll ever see Oprah cover this topic, don't hold your breath.
