A glance here, a flirtation there, a moment ofnbsp;nbsp;misunderstanding. Have the new rules of feministnbsp;nbsp;politics gone too far? Since Katie Riophe's booknbsp;nbsp;The Morning After helped spark anbsp;nbsp;national debate over the politics of date rape, thenbsp;nbsp;media has focused on controversial sexual behaviornbsp;nbsp;of all kinds. Proponents of what has come to benbsp;nbsp;called sexual correctness contend that we live in anbsp;nbsp;culture where date rape, pornography, and sexualnbsp;nbsp;harassment are simply facts of life that demand anbsp;nbsp;new sexual standard. Opponents argue that thesenbsp;nbsp;claims are born out of a victim mentality they seenbsp;nbsp;as pervasive in the modern feminist movement thatnbsp;nbsp;threatens to rob women of the gains of sexualnbsp;nbsp;freedom. As the successfull Dell titlenbsp;nbsp;Debating PC did in 1992, Debatingnbsp;nbsp;Sexual Correctness brings together some ofnbsp;nbsp;the best known and most important voices in thisnbsp;nbsp;debate. From the editorial pages of magazines asnbsp;nbsp;diverse as The New Republic andnbsp;nbsp;Glamour, The New Yorknbsp;nbsp;Times and Playboy, thenbsp;nbsp;country's most thoughtful social critics define ornbsp;nbsp;debunk this very controversial notion of sexualnbsp;nbsp;correctness. Katie Roiphe, Camille Paglia, Naominbsp;nbsp;Wolf, Andrea Dworkin, Catherine MacKinnon, and Susannbsp;nbsp;Faludi are only a few of the writers in thisnbsp;nbsp;provocative anthology that looks at a highly chargednbsp;nbsp;debate that has encompassed a nation.… (altro)

This book is lame. I bought it and started reading it thinking it was going to challenge rape-related hyperboles and scare tactics feminists love to use and I was hoping that it would address issues about sexual harassment, rape and that stuff that not only women face, but men too; sexual harassment, rape, sexism, and domestic abuse aren't issues exclusive to the female gender-in fact, studies have shown men are at a higher risk for violence*. But no, in this book, the author(s?) talks about how rape is when a man forces himself on a woman. It rubbed me the wrong way, I guess. And it's a bit dated, so obviously published in the mid-nineties. I've moved on to Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, which I hope will be somewhat better, at least for a book published initially in 1963.
