Most college women HATE mathematics!

Alexandra Padilla marked it as to-read Mar 11, Also her basic claims contradict one another and she seems to have forgotten the part of research where u reference other texts. Having said that, this is a provocative book. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

I want to be enslaved!!!! To see vilat your friends thought of this book, please sign up. This book is a little crazy. In she was invited to a televised debate [2] by WDR with Alice Schwarzerwho was considered as the leading representative of the women’s movement in Germany at that time. She trained and practised as a medical doctor before establishing herself as an author.


Women don’t want to work, and prefer it when men do all the thinking and working for them. Vilar writes that men gain nothing from marriage and that women coerce them into it under the pretense that it fulfills their romantic desires. Esther Vilar’s classic polemic about the relationship between the sexes caused a sensation.

What is bizarrely absent is any discussion of violence, coercion, and abuse, issues that have always been a touchstone of feminism.

The Manipulated Man

Men are a resource. I cannot believe one of the most anti-woman books ever was written by a woman. There’s a scintilla of truth in here, sure, but Jesus Christ.

Vilar claims women enjoy it – it is a system of concrete rules, and you can’t bullshit your way through it. Her argument often hinges on broad generalizations that are, unsurprisingly, questionable.

It might be that much of this manipulation is unconscious, but to do it well vilsr some brainpower. The idea that women’s greatest goal is to be totally hot and attractive in order to “bait” and get with the wealthiest men is preposterous in modern western culture.

She ends on a pessimistic note, not believing men or women will have the guts to free themselves of this system, a system I am not sure works precisely as she imagines it.

After reading this book it makes me nostalgic for a time vwron women were actually like this! She does not even, like many MRAs nowadays, divert vzron issue to abuse sexual and otherwise against men.

Whether you agree with Vilars or not, she creates a clear picture of sufficient depth to suggest plausibility.

What is a men to do with a woman when the smooth curves have become flabby tires of flesh, the skin slack and pallid, when the childish tones have grown shrill and the laughter sounds like neighing? On the one hand, women are stupid and uncreative, yet they expertly manipulate men through a covert matriarchy, while men believe they are really in control.


I would, for example, have liked to see Vilar attempt to explain why women in other countries and times have not been able to trick their male countrymen into the same kind of scheme that she suggests American and European women of the midth century devised. For myself, I can’t say the book convinced me, but it did show me that the 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.

The Modern Denial of Human Nature. In any case, the brevity of the book and Vilar’s acerbic wit make this an engaging quick read. But then I came across this feminism and feminists online and right from the beginning that smelled fishy. She tied everything together.

It’s basically just an exercise in shocking misogyny and I couldn’t really decide if I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and assume she was trying to be ironic or if she was just massively self-loathing.

Vilar writes, “Men have been trained and conditioned by women, not unlike the way Pavlov conditioned his dogs, into becoming their slaves.
