More Sexual Politics

I missed this when it came out, but it made me smile (but then I think Swarfega should market an aftershave). Kim du Toit on The Pussification of the Western Male.

Choice quotes -

"guns, self-defense, politics, beautiful women, sports, warfare, hunting, and power tools—all the things that being a man entails"

"Some women deserve to be single moms"

"Men are slobs, and that only changes when women try to civilize them by marriage. That’s the natural order of things."

"We Were Soldiers was a great movie, and you know why? Because you could have cut out all the female parts, and it still would have been a great movie, because it was about Real Men. Try cutting out all the female parts in a Woody Allen movie—you’d end up with the opening and closing credits."

"Men shouldn’t buy “self-help” books unless the subject matter is car maintenance, golf swing improvement or how to disassemble a Browning BAR."

Mr du Toit's work is best read in conjunction with femiluni academic Julie Bindel's Guardian lament. She's in Tallinn, Estonia, investigating "sex work". Tragically it turns out she's sharing a hotel with the punters.
