About this deal

Unfortunately, his partner believes that by not confronting or questioning his behavior when he hurts her feelings, she is expressing her love for him. Once you know that there are hundreds of thousands of people out there despising women to the point that many of them believe we should all be exterminated, you can never un-know it. If the messages the child gets about herself are primarily positive, her self-image will be healthy.

What if it’s almost impossible to get to grips with the epidemic of violence facing women and girls when we’re not able to clearly name and examine the problem? It was seductive: a world in which nothing was his fault, in which he was an aggrieved martyr, not the privileged loser he felt society painted him as. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. The woman’s acquiescence to abuse is the crucial element that allows for the abusive relationship to develop in the first place. I did find the final chapter disheartening as everyone she interviewed was talking about how being lonely, sad, and afraid drove the young men to the internet bubble of toxic masculinity, and seemed to think this was something unique to men.Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. Imagine a world in which a vast network of incels and other misogynists are able to operate, virtually undetected. S. shelves this month but published earlier in the UK, is an often harrowing read; an uncompromising guide to the misogynistic backlash of the past decade or so.

Almost every week for the past eight years, I have spoken to young people in schools across the UK about sexism. The mother becomes too powerful, and he views his partner in the exact same way: an overly powerful figure that can frustrate him, command him, make him feel weak, or hurt him. The unspoken agreement, which comes from our deepseated needs and fears, is far more powerful and binding.The book itself is horrifying, even to those of us who have followed the manosphere long enough to be familiar with much of what she says. Sexhaolics use sex either to escape life tensions, for example before going to work or to release tension coming back from work, or as a tool for control, as the guy from the quote above. Perhaps you think that there might be one or two men online with wild opinions and worrying views about women, but that’s just the internet – they’re just sad teenagers sitting in their parents’ basements, whiling away the hours in a pair of grubby Y-fronts, clutching a packet of Doritos under one arm.

What if we can’t begin to take a comprehensive and effective approach to policing acts of violence, because we don’t describe them in ways that acknowledge the connections between them? But when a woman repeatedly gives in to her partner so that her needs take second place to his, she cannot maintain her self-esteem. Once she believes his version of the relationship—that he is "good" and she is "bad," that he is "right" and she is "wrong," that her deficiencies are the cause of his blow-ups, and that he is acting this way only because he is trying to help her become a better person—she has stepped into a dangerous twilight zone of distorted perceptions. In her psychoanalytic interpretation, Forward says that “the drive to repeat the familiar combined with the equally powerful drive to make it come out better creates a trap into which many women fall”.We, both women and men, need to be informed, to admit there is a problem, and work together to change it. There exists a real men’s movement – founded in the late 1960s to complement the booming women’s liberation movement, and still active today – that encompasses communities truly fighting to tackle the many legitimate problems impacting men’s lives, as well as individual men fighting to defeat issues like relationship violence. As Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism project, explains, this body has “repeatedly entered lawsuits against women-only spaces – alleging discrimination on the part of sports teams, networking events, and groups seeking to increase women’s participation in business and technology … It has also filed court cases seeking to force the defunding of women’s domestic violence shelters, unless they admit men. Well, it certainly doesn't do feminism any favours - quite the opposite, it undermines credibility - and I think anyone who is genuinely interested in the rights of women should be bothered about that. Yet we’d rather stay ignorant of this misogynistic hate movement, actively grooming and radicalising our boys, than be forced to confront it.
