She tied everything together. Feminism, in between its vitriolic and simplistic platitudes, makes some very good points about the ways men overpower women.
Also her basic claims contradict one another and she seems to have forgotten the part of research where u reference other texts. The millions of women, including those in a relationship, who work long hours or even a second job to make ends meet don’t seem particularly in control, either.

The book closes with Vilar stating that it would be difficult to change the situation by appealing to women, as women are unsympathetic to the plight of men, and unwilling to give up their comfortable position in society.

There’s like 5 pages where it seems like the author is masturbating to men’s muscles, facial hair, and their ability to invent a multitude of things with their superior man brains At times interesting and sharp, at times plain funny, it comes at you with some challenging ideas.
Men are, after all, the ones who do the work, the ones who are expected to provide, to take the risks, to bear the hardest physical burdens. To her credit, Vilar is a clear, articulate writer, good at conveying her points and only a chore to read when she hammers at them too much.
Some perspectives in the book are questionable and not entirely true, however the most positive ester of the book is how maan exposes the fraudulence of the women’s liberation movement and feminism. I would, for example, have liked to see Vilar attempt to explain why women in other countries and times have not been able to trick their male countrymen into the same kind of scheme that she suggests American and European women of the midth century devised.
As with everything a woman undertakes on her own initiative, this whole maneuvre is as incredible as it is stupid. Mind-blowing in its courage and audacity, corrosive in its vitriol against feminine wiles and subterfuge.

If you happen to be essther a conspiracy theorist and a male chauvinist, this is your new bible, if you I had originally planned to give The Manipulated Man 1 star, but I’ve changed my mind. Maybe they didn’t have really steamy covers on romance novels at the time? Aung San Suu Kyi? For, unlike women who have an eye for moneymen notice only woman’s external appearance. Vilar brings to attentions some refreshing points of view regarding several one-sided arguments about the status of men and women.
