Individualist feminist Wendy McElroy, a libertarian writer and philosopher, has a new book, “Rape Culture” Hysteria: Fixing the Damage Done to Men and Women. On the book’s Amazon page, one reviewer, Ethicist, writes,
In Rape Culture Hysteria Wendy McElroy brings to light the dirty laundry behind this ideologically based bit of political correctness. She deftly demonstrates that the rape culture hysteria is all about politics, not correctness. It is about driving a wedge between men and women, while creating a privileged class based on gender.
With hard facts and direct quotes Ms McElroy completely demolishes all of the claims and rhetoric of these extreme feminists who are harming not only men, who they are deliberately targeting, but also women, particularly those who are not willing to accept the ideology on blind faith.
Historically, the privileged class mocks those who dare to confront them with facts and, no matter how loudly they deny it, these PC feminists are clearly the privileged class. They are quick to lash out at actual rape victims who blame the rapist instead of innocent men. They dismiss all men merely because they are men, which goes directly against the equality that the original feminists pursued. PC feminists are the enemy of equality, the enemy of individuality, and the enemy of justice. Yet they are masters of Orwellian doublespeak, calling for “social justice” which is anti-social not justice at all.
And Walter Block writes,
Wendy McElroy is one of the most gifted libertarians of the Rothbardian persuasion now writing. Her latest book debunking the rape culture, is must reading not only for all libertarians, that goes without saying, but for all people concerned with the denigration of men’s rights in our hyper-politically correct society. She not only magnificently applies libertarian theory to this important attack on freedom, but also tells her own personal story, which is equally fascinating. I highly recommend this book.
