Book Description

1 Mar 2008 1845401506 978-1845401504
Steve Moxon s first book, The Great Immigration Scandal, led to the resignation of the immigration minister, Beverley Hughes. But immigration was never his primary interest: he joined the Home Office in order to study its HR policy, as part of a decade-long investigation of men-women relations. Not withstanding its provocative title, The Woman Racket is a serious scientific investigation into one of the key myths of our age that women are oppressed by the patriarchal traditions of Western societies. Drawing on the latest developments in evolutionary psychology, Moxon finds that the opposite is true men, or at least the majority of ordinary males have always been the victims of deep-rooted prejudice. As the prejudice is biologically derived, it is unconscious and can only be uncovered with the tools of scientific psychology.The book reveals this prejudice in fields as diverse as healthcare, employment, family policy and politics.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's misandry, stupid! 18 Dec 2013
Steve Moxon's expose of feminism as an agent of male demonization and oppression succeeds in large part, despite of itself. Misandry is Western society's biggest cultural and legal problem.

Moxon asserts the premise of evolutionary biology and psychology - that human beings' basic behaviours are hard wired, and that there is a natural set of preferences for women and against men. Men are very supportive of these prejudices, and as a whole, have accepted the feminism, hook line and sinker. These have been totally misunderstood, especially by feminists - who say they believe in equality and the 'blank slate' but act as if all men are demons. 'The patriarchy' is not only a myth, but a feminist projection of their own sexes ability to unify (men always compete and co-operate only in certain circumstances) and dictate how society should behave.

In fact, feminists have not pursued equality, but instead have pursued a hardened set of preferences for women in all walks of life that not only blames men, but actively discriminates, humiliates and even kills them to serve their purposes. Moxon pursues this to explain how women got the vote, why men get shafted over healthcare, employment, domestic violence, rape, prostitution, pornography, and of course, divorce and family law.

When Moxon draws upon facts, he makes his case well. But there are times when he veers into subjectivity. For example, Moxon points to research that shows how men are more likely to be geniuses and morons, and how women cluster around mediocrity. To illustrate his point, he uses modern songwriters as an example. For him, the only song writing genius to emerge from the last 50 years is Joni Mitchell - no one else compares with the many male song writing geniuses.

Read this book, because it is good, informative as far as you trust it, economical and thought provoking, but:

This book makes much of its basis in science, and is heavily referenced. No doubt it is well-founded but as it wears on it becomes more polemical and a little bitter. I found myself wondering whether the author were a Father4Justice. Not that it would invalidate the book; in fact it appears he is involved in "Mankind' - a charity concerned with domestic violence against men; its website has references to research held by the Home Office (lots of British Crime Survey.)

The early material about women as the limiting factor in reproduction with the Y chromosome (i.e. men) as genetic filter is fascinating, and something I'd not heard about.

Of course this book is not a primary work of science, but a referenced digest. However I think especially in the later chapters there is a tendency to career past factual/scientific evidence into rant and polemic (as Damaskcat points out too.) Do not be put off - read this book; but look too at "The Myth of Male Power", by Warren Farrell. Although indigestibly American in presentation, and also now quite old, it probably has more fact and reference.

What are these books for? I think they are trying to say that feminism is generally unopposed (even consented to - because that's what men do) and has much that is damaging alongside the essential and positive, and that therefore opposition, fact and clarity are necessary, so that feminism should mature. Is it the case that feminism has matured? Are there feminists who are "out of control"? Is some such feminism official policy and/or general societal attitude (for example, premeditated homicide as involuntary and not culpable?

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminist Bullies 11 April 2014
By g s m
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book gives a useful overview as to why most feminist literature and arguments should begin with the words "Once upon a time..." and moved to the fiction category where they belong.

The information on female preference for other females was something I was aware of from observation (as any intelligent individual would be), but it was interesting to note that this has been scientifically proven. The extent of the preference was surprising though. It would have been useful if this could have been covered in more detail from a perspective of the male / female pattern brain and whether, when combined with an empathy disorder, such individuals are a danger to society. It opens up the question of whether feminism is merely a manifestation (in some individuals) of the female preference pattern and an empathy disorder combined. (even if a gender is good at empathy, it raises the question of 'empathy for whom?').

The issue of female preference and empathy disorders is a subject that is in urgent need of further research.

What is clear after reading this book, however, is that women are not the victims that feminists claim them to be and that feminists are at best bullies and in extreme cases may be tyrants.

A useful step on the path to an 'ecology of mind' and hopefully men and women will learn to appreciate each other's difference and work together in a spirit of co-operation for the good of all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feminism is a racket 27 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Steve Moxam's excellent book exposes modern feminism as the mendacious racket that it has become.

Reviewing current research on sex differences in cognition and behaviour he debunks the self-serving but totally unfounded and unscientific claims by feminists, that gender roles are social constructs.

Historical sex roles are likewise explained not as the result of the patriarchal conspiracy so beloved of feminists, but as the consequences of reproductive strategies (the higher reproductive value of females due to them being the limiting factor in maintenance and growth of populations - leading to them being kept out of harm's way) and the role of the male as 'genetic filter'.

He shows how feminism uses a false narrative of past and current oppression of women as a way to keep career feminists (in academia, social services and government to name just three sectors) in employment and generously funded.

This false narrative includes lies and distortions on such things as the gender wage gap, domestic violence and rape conviction rates as well as the deliberate denial of disadvantages faced by men in such areas as education, healthcare, the criminal justice system and divorce courts.

An excellent rebuttal to the racket of feminism.
