Women who are good at things that men respect are respected by men, and they tend to like men because they have things in common.

...So are feminists.

A feminist sees men exactly as anti-Semites see Jews. ...—the same template, the same bottle but with different wine. She has a more hair-trigger anger (“Men are sexist pigs”) because she can get away with it, a more bellicose incivility for the same reason,


feminists are clueless about men. ...


They have struck me, without exception that comes to mind, as fitting a peculiar mold: bright, very hostile and combative, but physically timid and pampered, hothouse flowers really, usually from fairly moneyed families and often Ivy or semi-Ivy schools.

Often they have done little outside of feminism and would be helpless out of an urban setting. They have no idea how anything around them works—what a cam lobe is, how a refrigerator makes things cold, or how a file-allocation table might be arranged.......

degrees run to ideologizable pseudosubjects such as sociology, psychology, or Women’s Studies.
