Now everything makes sense, my mother’s total selfishness, my wife’e endeavors at controlling everything and my daughter’s behavior. We have long ceased to play the games of manipulatev. The power of sexual selection: If women complain that they are not paid extra wages for this work. One gets the feeling that only a woman could have written this, and probably paid a high social price for doing so. But most of it is just a mean tirade against women.

Books by Esther Vilar. I want this book to be kan No matter what a particular man does or how he spends his day, he has one thing in common with all other men – he spends it in a degrading manner. The perpetuation of this myth further enslaves the male by reinforcing the conditioning imposed by his mother. Anyhow this book is an antidote to feminism, the mystique of feminine charm and for bursting that bubble I am humbly thankful to Esther Vilar.

To be a possible candidate as a husband, he must be more intelligent, responsible. For myself, I can’t say the book convinced me, but it did show me that mainpulated status of women and their relation to men may not be as they are said to be in the contemporary discourse meaning the politically correct one.

Perhaps the only hope for the salvation of men lies not in social reform or revolution, but in technological progress which may eventually liberate manipulahed from ether need for women.

But Vilar’s intention is not misogynous: It is worth reading becus it is short. It doesn’t take much reading to know what the whole book is about.


I didnt even know it existed. Feminism she tells us furthers the myth of the mans power. But this isn’t even remotely amusing enough to pass for satirical insight. Vilar sees feminism as missing manipulahed point entirely. Sep 10, A rated it did not like it Shelves: Vilar writes that men gain nothing from marriage and that manipklated coerce them into it under the pretense that it fulfills their romantic desires.

If someone tells you your unhappiness is all because of some particular group of people, you should be very suspicious. By a trick of fate, it is always the latter, the poorest, who are exploited by the least attractive women.

Apr 21, Kevin rated it did not like it Shelves: It reads very quickly and estheer hard to prove Vilar wrong. Reading it, I felt like an incredulous Westerner in the ‘s who was entrusted with some Eastern-bloc defector’s top-secret files.

E isso muda tudo.
