Mail SAMEDAY; 8.24x5.49x.59 in. .35 lbs.; 180 pages; How hard it is for "activists" to admit they're full of it.., Aug 3, 1999 Reviewer: Timothy P. Scanlon (Hyattsville, MDUSA) - After I investigated five years of civil rights cases, the vast majority of which--in race OR sex--were found to be groundless, this was the first book I read that challenged the "feminist" doctrine. Since then, several other volumes have been released full of often well-researched and solid challenges to the same dogma. As the challenges become more substantial, the responses become all the more rabid. It makes me angry, when I'm not laughing. #To ensure their place in victimhood, middle and upper middle class women claimed they'd been raped, even created institutions, e. G. , "date rape, " to guarantee they'd have this place. The talk show switchboards lit up, the "victims" whined ad nauseum, and what did we get for it? More talk shows, switchboards, and whiners. #Roiphe has made a number of valuable contributions with this volume. One: She questioned. The rape "statistics" flashing across the screens of the mainstream media, particularly on college campuses, have not been questioned. She exposes them as, at best, dubious, and, more likely, absurd. (I liked particularly the story of the woman who attended the anti-rape conference as a rape victim for four years. During the last year, someone risked investigating, and found that the alleged rape had never taken place. Then, the assumed victim and her cohorts proclaimed that it's the cause that counts, not the facts. I'd have expected the same from any loyal Nazi) . #Next, walking contradictions like pseudo- intellectual "law professor" Catherine McKinnon rely on assumptions especially on items such as pornography. Among the assumptions are that the "practices" of porn are a manifestation of violence against women, whether or not violence actually takes place. (When I conversed with a woman not long ago who insisted that women who star in porn films are forced at gunpoint to appear in them, I laughed until my beer spilled) . Roiphe points out, with the skill of an observer and not an ideologue with a bone to pick, that most of those she sees, for example, along 42nd Street in New York are desperate and hopeless rather than seeking their helpless female prey. #I guess what makes me most apprehensive about this doctrine which Roiphe has the balls (sorry) to expose, is that the feminists who claim a desire to be independent are demonstrating their dependence, their NEED to be victims with extremely limited ability to stand up for themselves. I have a great deal of respect for many women who can challenge me on any number of subjects. I have terribly little respect for women--or men--who insist they, or any traditional underdogs, are helpless victims, and rely on doctrine and platitudes to prove it. #Lest I go on for too long, I recommend this as a primer for those who are not opposed to feminism, but who don't buy into the claptrap that parades itself as women's rights these days. There are more volumes for those who're interested in real equality, an honorable and attainable goal, but this is a great start. ., Little, Brown & Company, 1994, London: Routledge, 1992.
