The book examines many women's perspectives, but never once examines the sons' perspective and the obvious question of the negative impact of feminist male bashing on sons. I was "orphaned" by feminism as it lead my Mom not only to divorce my Dad, but also to champion women at every turn over even me, her own flesh and blood. Now at 53 I see the hollowness of my Mom's assertions that men always have advantages and that there is some male conspiracy out there to ensure my success over women. My Mom's feminist teachings merely made me a tool for women's agendas, which could never include my own success since I was a man. My Mom's feminism not only separated me from my father, it separated me from her and set me up for a life of exploitation by less deserving but more politically savy feminists in the academy.
