I ordered it online and I'm grateful it arrived before I left for a long car ride today- it's been a while since I've devoured a book like this. I feel like I'm nodding my head and saying "yup" so much!! It's so quotable and so many of the essays explain things perfectly.

Anybody wanna chat about it or share thoughts or anything? I saw a convo about it from a while ago but it's closed to new comments so thought I could start a new one :)

So glad you posted about this early and very important book. Ruth Barrett was very courageous to get this book out, raising money from those of us who saw its importance. It was one of the first in the US, after The Trans-sexual Empire, to raise the alarm. The contributors, including GallusMag, were all prescient women, along with Ruth, who were warning everyone about the great and developing harms, to women and children. The publishing of the book, 6 years ago, was extremely supportive to those of us feeling isolated in our knowledge of the insanity of "genderism."

I read the book when it was published so don't remember the specifics, but I did "star" Chapters 6,7,10 and 11 as particularly effective. I found all the essays of value. A very comprehensive collection. We discussed many chapters in our radical feminist book club.

That was one funding event I actually got to help with. That's where my copy came from.
