Reviews - What do customers think about The War Against Men?
A fantastic, objective analysis from Dr Hise Sep 6, 2007
This book makes a great read, providing scientific confirmation of facts which all of average intelligence already knew intuitively. Forget about Susan Faludi's war on women. If anything, the so-called war on women, especially when Faludi wrote her book in the 80s, has been no more than a scuffle as men have largely failed to take action in the war against them and their sons. Men are facing an all-out assault, not just in the US, as documented here, but in the many Western countries which ultimately take their lead from the US. Countries exposed to Hollywood films, most of the world now I guess, are being systematically brainwashed by the feminist agenda. The time has come when 'Be a man' does not refer to some pathetic chivalrous nonsense you were conditioned with as a boy to help make it easier to sacrifice your life on battlefield, coal mine, or construction site. 'Be a man' now means to stand up for your gender, we've sat back for 40 years and look at the disaster we've allowed unopposed feminism to wreak on our planet. Dr Hise hates feminism and not women. Those who've grown up with just a 50% perspective on reality, and are not used to clear talking and no beating around the bush, may mistake his tone. Well, get used to it. The time has come for clear, direct no-nonsense truths, for the sake of not just the US, but the world. If or when the US ultimately loses its status in the world, Americans, and all lovers of a free world, will know who to thank. Those who undermined their country in its hour of need for their own selfish, egotistical motives.
In the end, the world will move back to a more traditional, conservative order as the disaster of feminism becomes more and more apparent. Feminists, thank God, are a group not known for procreating, apparently because the only way they can get sperm in them is by paying for it. In the country I live in, the number of Germans having babies has dropped dramatically thanks ultimately to Feminism. The ones reproducing are the Turkish and Arabian immigrants, and those from Eastern Europe and Russia, all patriarchal societies which are largely producing Germany's population of the future, along with the German working class. Not many young feminists being produced there. When the day finally comes when gender feminism is thankfully no more than a bad memory, we will thus be able to ascribe its downfall to the application of its own, unenlightened policies. So Dr Hise, thank you once again for your insightful work, I am not a Christian myself and consider myself a liberal, so may not give the few scriptures you quote the weight you do, but that did not affect my appreciation for a fantastic piece of research. It's time we forget about such petty labels so that people of both sexes and across the political spectrum can concentrate on the common enemy at hand.
One stumble for man, one pitfall for Mankind Mar 14, 2007
I've done lots of reviews on books holding enforced patriarchal views that I strongly dislike. As much as I disapprove of the authors who hold such views, I have never accused any of them of having a "hatred" of women before, mainly because (with one exception) I haven't come across an author who honestly DID seem to hate women. Until now, that is.
I will readily admit that certain corners of society are unfair to men and that some feminists have, well, given the movement a bad name. However, while there are definetly valid problems for men, this mass "war" that Hise speaks of seems to be mostly the product of a mind that's more sexist than the women he damns and somewhat delusional. He does, indeed, seem to have a hatred of women and a rampant fear of a female conspiracy that he seems to think rests in every estrogen-holding mind. (And yes, I mean a hatred of women, not just feminists; I've come across men who hate feminists without hating women and Hise ain't one of them).
Hise's tone towards women, dripping with patronization and dislike, was what really offended me. Like I said before, society does have certain unfair slants towards men and that is a valid problem to pursue. Hise, however, gives me the impression that a woman merely stepping out of the kitchen to have equal footing with a man would send him into an anti-feminist rant. He rips Biblical passages out of context and practically screams them at women like we're cattle. It came to the point that I felt like I was being forcibly pushed into an apron and a back pew, safely away from the men I might corrupt.
Radical feminism IS a problem and does pose a real danger to men, fathers, and boys. However, the solution is not in this book. It claims to be a work against feminism, and turns out to be a long-winded sermon on this author's personal and outdated beliefs of where ALL women should be. I've seen this over and over: a book comes along claiming to hold solutions for aggressive misandry, when it in fact is nothing more than the work of a man stuck in the 50's who's really just dying to belt out his frusteration that women aren't hiding behind aprons anymore.
Hise's claim that the Bible encourages female submission to patriarchy was what really gave him away and proved to me that he was not trying to fix real problems in society so much as bellow his own outrage that women have stepped out of his image of what we should be (way too late for that, Mr. Hise; you missed the mid-sixties). There's unfairness to both men and women in the world, though not in the same areas. For men, it lies in the increasingly anti-male political world, such as the divorce courts who deny fathers rights and even the elementary schools that automatically alienate boys. For women, though, many problems of sexism are not in the political, social, or economic world, the way so many feminists mistakenly claim: it's with old-fashioned religious people, like this one. There's a huge difference between political men who carefully examine the genuine dangers with radical feminism, and the religious shmucks who hated the idea of equal opportunity from the beginning and are really just whining about loss of male rule. The latter kind of man is not interested in solving problems in the real world, because he doesn't live in it.
Hise, in typical fear-mongering fashion, gives examples of women who he believes to be concocting plots against men, warns men against marriage, and even goes so far as to tell men they should keep wives out of the workplace because so many affairs occur there. All I have to say to that is, it takes two to tango. What about those male workers involved in affairs, Hise? Unless you buy into the age-old crock of "men can't help themselves", I'm afraid that advice only takes care of half the problem. But then, that could just be more of an attempt to keep women out of work period than to prevent affairs. What a shame that Hise has such a horrid view of women. Rarely have I seen such fear and underlying hatred of my sex.
PS: If you are earnestly seeking a book that describes the injustice commited against men by the divorce court etc., I recommend "Taken into Custody: The War Against Fatherhood, Marriage, and the Family". Granted, I haven't read it, but I visited its product page and it has 41 solid five-star reviews (none less than five stars). I'm guessing this means that, unlike anti-women books, it portrays the legal war against men without painting a paranoid and black picture of all women at the same time.
Absolute rubbish Feb 12, 2007
First lets start by saying I hate political correctness and everything it stands for. One part of PC is the gender war. Basically you can say anything derogatory about men. However, if you even say you don't agree with all this feminist propaganda you are branded a sexist and could lose your job. I bought this book hoping it would contain some insight into methods to combat such inequalities. What utter rubbish it was. Nothing about PC. It was written by some old bible bashing codger. It was nothing to do with male-female inequality, but rather if you were a good christian how this would save America. Sorry I don't like PC but this guy stepped out of the 1850s. He believes if women lived as the bible tells them to, then the whole place will be fine and dandy. Don't waste your money on this antiquated load of rubbish. I suggest you buy "The rantings of a single male" much more informative and relevant for today.
Boys are in danger Mar 29, 2006
What everyone knew, but too afraid to say anything because it isn't politically correct for a boy to protest against boy-bashing.
I was most upset with how present-day feminist take blind aim at boys as young as six years old, charging them with sexual harassment.
The world's gone crazy! In Williamsville, N.Y. a 6-year-old boy kissed a girl on the cheek, after she asked him to, and was charged with sexual harassment. The boy was more upset for being banned from "coloring time" with his friends, and not being allowed to participate in his ice cream party for his good attendance.
In Canton, Ohio, a 6-year-old boy with ADHD had to go to the doctor on the day of his class field trip, so his mom put him in the tub so he wouldn't see the school bus. When he heard the bus and ran to the window to tell them to wait, not only was the little boy suspended for sexual harassment, he was told by school officials to sign a paper stating that he understood the charges against him.
In El Paso, Texas, a boy stuck his tongue out at a girl during a play-ground dispute and was charged.
The sad thing is that these boys don't understand the severity of what has happened. A California boy was told by a friend that he wasn't allowed to attend his birthday party because of a similar incident. When these boys apply for college, they'll find a "sexual harassment charge" on their permanent school record.
Title IX's unfortunate side effect has created this atmosphere that it's okay to target and label boys as young as 6 years old as sexual predators by adults who are lacking in experience, knowledge, or plain common sense.
Title IX was written to ensure equal rights for both men and women, but is primarily used to eliminate athletic opportunity for college men. The law never seemed to apply whenever gender-inequities favored women, and this precedent has made it to the elementary school level where girls are just as, if not more, physically expressive as boys. But nationwide, only boys have been charged for sexual harassment for innocent hugs or kisses.
By the way things are going, if a kindergartner falls on a girl in the schoolyard, he may be charged with anything from sexual harassment to attempted rape.
It's totally crazy.
Good analysis, insufficient solutions Dec 27, 2005
I commend Dr. Hise for being one of the very few Christians that hasn't bought into the prevalent "woman good, man bad" zeitgeist or been blinded by a misguided "chivalry" (put forth in reality to gain the favor of women). He is thus able to take an objective look at things, about how men are demonized and discriminated against in our society. There is a veritable gold mine of statistics and references. There admittedly could have been a bit more space devoted to divorce and child custody issues, and how extensive and intrusive "child support" enforcement has become (which is in reality an extortion/shakedown racket).
However, the problem is even worse than Dr. Hise has envisioned. Dr. Hise is dreaming if he really imagines solutions are going to be implemented on the political level anytime soon. Most politicians, even especially male politicians, are totally beholden to the feminists. And, Dr. Hise is dreaming if he thinks the solution to marriage/divorce is a pre-nuptial agreement, which courts routinely ignore. Sad to say, the only solution is going to lie in a wholesale revolt by men against a society totally hostile to them. For instance, if there is any chance of a divorce husbands should stash their assets in offshore bank accounts and their wives should be told in no uncertain terms that if they decide they are "no longer fulfilled" the men expect full custody of the children; if not, they will refuse to support the family breakup and buy a one-way ticket to a jurisdiction which doesn't honor U.S. family courts. Men should refuse to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, especially when they return home to a divorcing wife, a family court system unfavorable to them, and, if a reservist called to active duty, child support arrearages due to the differenec in pay between their civilian jobs and active duty pay. Sad to say, this is what it's going to take. Men will be played for chumps as long as they willingly go along with it. Maybe Dr. Hise will explore these issues in a follow-up book.
