Product description

From Publishers Weekly

According to columnist Parker, men are an endangered species struggling against everything from mere hostility to literal emasculation. Starting in elementary school, where a teacher most likely a feminist will demand that boys sit still and listen and continuing through college, where freshmen must endure rape awareness workshops, men are besieged by disrespect. Belittled by bumbling portrayals in sitcoms, their importance as fathers is so devalued that they are perceived as little more than sperm and a wallet. Parker trots out the usual suspects—mass culture, unspecified feminists, The Vagina Monologues, Murphy Brown, metrosexuals and girlymen—to propose that a feminist campaign is afoot and eager to effeminize, denigrate and destroy American men. Although Parker's deliberate provocations make for lively reading, the majority of her claims are too fanciful and unsubstantiated to be genuinely thought provoking or even interesting (erectile dysfunction is caused by young, sexually aggressive women; women serving in the army put the nation at risk). Parker makes a poor conspiracy theorist, and her statistics and unverifiable theories are unable to make her case, however vehement or entertaining their presentation. (June)

Review

“Sharp and witty criticism.”—New York Post

Save the Males is witty and it’s going to make you laugh, but it is also serious, thoughtful, brilliantly observed, and dead-on.”—Peggy Noonan

“Kathleen Parker proves to be not just a sharp thinker but a blithe spirit. While most social critics fight the gender wars from the female side, Parker throws our men and our boys an intelligent, heartfelt, humorous life jacket.” —Margaret Carlson

“Arresting, entertaining, and serious.”—The New York Times
 
“Fierce and funny.”—Toronto Star
