With Special Guests: Kathleen Parker and Peter Burns
Author Kathleen Parker has created a furore around the world with her new book Save The Males. Don’t miss this fascinating interview. So disenfranchised have men become, that only a woman can state the bleeding obvious, that the extreme sexism of gender feminism has done a great deal of harm to men, women, children, and society as a whole. For her pains she has attracted vicious criticism from the feminist pack. We’ll also be talking with Peter Burns from New Zealand, who has been to court more than 200 times to right false allegations, proving that the family law system is just as appalling and just as discriminatory in NZ as it is in Australia.
But first up, Kathleen Parker.
She argues that feminism has neutered men and deprived them of their noble, protective role in society.
Writing in The Times of London she said:
“I know. Saving the males is an unlikely vocation for a 21st-century woman. Most men don’t know they need saving; most women consider the idea absurd. When I tell my women friends that I want to save the males, they look at me as if noticing for the first time that I am insane. Then they say something like: “Are you out of your mind? This is still a male-dominated world. It’s women who need saving. Screw the men!”
“Actually, that’s a direct quote. The reality is that men already have been screwed – and not in the way they prefer. For the past 30 years or so, males have been under siege by a culture that too often embraces the notion that men are to blame for all of life’s ills. Males as a group – not random men – are bad by virtue of their DNA….(Full Story)
Comment by Fathers for Life:
The book is available through amazon.com
Save the Males: Why Men Matter Why Women Should Care, by Kathleen Parker
Out of 21 reviews, 17 are rated 5 stars, and four are rated 1 star. One of those 1-star reviews is by someone who didn’t read the book, proving that to be a feminist one neither has to be logical nor informed. To be a feminist, one only needs to toe the party line and to be opposed to common sense.
There is another “save-the-males” book, published before Kathleen Parker’s collection of essays. This one is more researched and less of a reflection of opinions. In essence, it provides the references and rigorous factual information to Kathleen Parker’s book on the subject. See:
Save the Males: Masculinity and Men’s Rights Redux (2007, Paperback), by Richard Doyle (Author)
An earlier edition of that book was published as:
Save the Males: Common Sense on Gender and Family Issues (2006, Paperback, ISBN 978-1-4116-9633-4) by Richard Doyle
