American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going “on strike.” They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this “man-child” phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility simply because they can. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them? As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren’t dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development. They are instead acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century. Men are starting to fight back against the backlash. Men on Strike explains their battle cry.

In ihrer unkonventionellen Streitschrift dreht Esther Vilar die stereotypen Rollenmuster um und wurde damit zur Bestsellerautorin: Bei ihr ist die Frau der Herr im Haus. Sie dressiert den Mann, lässt ihn für sich arbeiten, für sich denken, für sich Verantwortung tragen. Der Mann ist stark, intelligent, phantasievoll, die Frau ist schwach, dumm und phantasielos. Warum wird trotzdem der Mann von der Frau ausgebeutet und nicht umgekehrt? Esther Vilar enttarnt ihre feministischen Geschlechtsgenossinnen als abgebrühte Ausbeuterinnen, die sich vor allem ihr äußeres Erscheinungsbild zu Nutze machen. Esther Vilar ist mit »Der dressierte Mann« das beste Beispiel dafür, dass auch provozierende Bücher zu Klassikern werden können.

DAILY MAIL BOOK OF THE WEEK Men must be the worst oppressors in history - we pay the most taxes, get the least support and play longer matches at Wimbledon for no extra money. We're also more likely to be homeless, circumcised, attacked, jailed, drafted, under-educated, short-changed in parenthood and shafted by divorce. Oh, and to top it all, we die sooner. Despite this, feminists still assert we live in a patriarchy and give us a hard time. Fortunately, Peter Lloyd is here to offer a reality check in this long-overdue lad bible. Part polemic, part toolkit for the modern man, Stand By Your Manhood answers all the burning questions facing the brotherhood today, including: Should we fund the first date? Is penis size a political issue? Are we sexist if we enjoy pornography? Why isn't there a men's minister? Politically incorrect, fearless and laugh-out-loud funny, this is the deliciously provocative book that gives blokes their balls back.

The year is 1970: The Supreme Court has legalized abortion, “Equal Pay for Equal Work” is now the law, and Affirmative Action programs attempt to redress past injustices and inequities. Women are coming together nationwide in “consciousness-raising” groups, sharing their knowledge and experiences with each other. A group of six women in Stentoria, California bond through such a group, and support each other as women in this new “Movement” are forming collectives; publishing their own books and periodicals; creating an exciting new genre of “Women’s Music”; as well as starting their own bookstores, to make these new materials readily available to the community. New spiritual movements—focused on the “Divine Feminine” principle—are also beginning. Even some men are sympathetic and supportive of these ideals. But as the 1980s arrive, the situation changes: the “backlash” against the women’s movement in politics and the media seemingly turns into a full-fledged “war,” specifically targeting the gains that women have achieved. Opposition from traditional religions hardens, and women’s reproductive rights come under renewed attack; the Equal Rights Amendment fails, even as women themselves debate controversial questions: such as banning pornography, and how to view a rising “Third Wave” of the women’s movement. Ominously, the threat of AIDS seemingly brings the era of “sexual freedom” to a close. The six women deal with all these issues, as well as personal challenges—including balancing work and family responsibilities. As the new century begins, they reflect about what the women’s movement ultimately accomplished. In a world now characterized by growing economic inequality, increasing low self-esteem for some women (exemplified by cosmetic surgery and “extreme makeovers”), legalized same-sex marriage, and media attention to Transgender issues, this book may help you to appreciate not only how far we’ve come, but how far we have yet to go.

In today’s America, marriages are falling apart or never happening at all. This is an event that is occurring in small rural towns as well as in large metropolitan centers. Since the beginning of the sexual revolution, we have all been told that marriages are institutions of patriarchal oppression, and that if men and women are both freed from this oppression, happiness will bloom. Regrettably, reality intrudes, and men and women are finding the reality that we now find ourselves is actually a dystopia of empty lives living alone. Women have changed from traditional wives with husbands and children, to single career professionals with little chance of matrimony. Men have also changed from being traditional fathers and heads of household to pickup artists who avoid long-term commitment for fear of aggressive one-sided courts. As a result, both men and women have taken a trajectory that was unanticipated by the framers of this new sexually liberated society. Our culture will eventually work its way back to a more traditional relationship, but that will take decades before the transition begins. Until this shift occurs, what is the single man who wants to raise a family to do? The question has been examined, and since American women, on the whole, have demonstrated a dislike for the white picket fence, a new population must be considered, and this is foreign women, or more specifically Asian women. Since Daniel Gregg married an Oriental woman almost two decades ago, he has come across some rather surprising artifacts of Asian culture that can cause headaches for the unwary Western man. In this book, Daniel details what can be expected from Asian women, and how to steer your relationship past these shoals toward the ideal of happiness and love.

Ist die jahrtausendealte Herrschaft des Patriarchats am Ende? Noch nicht, sagt Hanna Rosin, doch die massiven Veränderungen der Berufswelt und des Bildungssystems haben eine Dynamik in Gang gesetzt, die das Verhältnis zwischen den Geschlechtern nachhaltig verändert. So scheinen viele Anforderungen der modernen Dienstleistungsgesellschaft – Flexibilität, soziale Intelligenz, Kommunikationsfähigkeit – eindeutig Frauen in die Hände zu spielen, während Männer oft von den Umwälzungen überfordert sind. Hanna Rosin zeigt – frei von ideologischen Prämissen –, wie sich heute das Leben von Männern und Frauen unterscheidet, wie sehr sich die Art und Weise geändert hat, wie heute gearbeitet, gelernt, zusammengelebt wird. Differenziert und mit vielen konkreten Beispielen gelingt es Rosin, die Chancen und Schattenseiten des »weiblichen Jahrhunderts« in den Blick zu nehmen. "Das Ende der Männer" ist keine feministische Streitschrift, keine Prophezeiung, sondern eine messerscharfe, weitsichtige Diagnose.

The human rights of men and boys in the United Kingdom have been increasingly assaulted by the state's actions and inactions for over 30 years, as they have across much of the developed world. Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them) is the only political party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys, including the right of all children to enjoy good access to both parents following family breakdowns, and the restoration of fatherhood and strong families. The British state has become ever more hostile towards men and boys, although the state is largely funded by men, through income tax receipts. Men collectively pay 72%, and women 28%, of the income taxes collected by the state. In 2011/12 British men paid £68 billion - £68,000,000,000 - more income tax than women, yet the state disadvantages men and boys in many areas, usually to advantage women and girls. There are no areas in which the state disadvantages women and girls. A state which is hostile towards half its citizens also affects women who are mothers of boys, or who are men's partners, relatives, colleagues, friends or acquaintances. In the case of abortion, foetal alcohol syndrome, and fatherlessness, girls (including those yet unborn) are also assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state. The result is both inevitable and predictable - an ever more dysfunctional society, with increasing alienation of the sexes. In this manifesto we provide details of the state's disadvantaging of men and boys in 20 areas, and we make proposals in each of them. The areas are presented in a broadly chronological order: Abortion Foetal alcohol syndrome Genital mutilation Fatherlessness, restoring strong families Education Employment Access to children after family breakdowns Domestic violence Sexual abuse Armed Forces veterans' mental health issues Homelessness Suicide Criminal justice system Paternity fraud Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders Divorce Health Political representation State interference in company director appointments Expectation of retirement years The social engineering programmes which seek equality of gender outcomes are having an increasingly damaging impact on British society, and the Conservative-led coalition is no less keen on driving those programmes than the preceding Labour administrations. We have a vision of Britain as a nation that doesn't disadvantage half its citizens. A society in which men and women have equal opportunities but are able to make their own choices in life, without state intervention to advantage one sex over the other. It's said that under the 'first past the post' system, votes for parties other than the major parties are wasted, but voting is the only mechanism democracy affords citizens to seriously challenge politicians who embrace the all-pervading anti-male ideology which has dictated the state's policy directions for over 30 years. The major parties are institutionally committed to advantaging women and girls at the expense of men and boys, regardless of the consequences, as we recognized after engaging in parliamentary inquiries which demonstrated that the government simply doesn't respond to rational arguments against anti-male policy directions. The only choice for citizens concerned about the state's assaults on the human rights of men and boys is to vote - and to vote for J4MB. In the short to medium term, our challenge is to improve public understanding about the state's assaults on the human rights of men and boys. We do that in various ways, including the use of social media. Our television and radio appearances may be found on our YouTube channel. Our longer term strategy, however, is to develop our party to the point that we can field many candidates in general elections, in marginal constituencies, where the major parties are vulnerable. They will then have no choice but to take heed of the voices we represent, engage with us, and seek to appease them by modifying their policies, and their direction of travel. At the 2015 general election we'll be fielding three candidates in adjacent constituencies near Nottingham where, in 2010, MPs were elected with very slim majorities: - I'll be standing in Ashfield, where Gloria De Piero retained the seat for Labour with 192 more votes than a Liberal Democrat candidate. She's the Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities. - Ian Young, formerly a victim of domestic violence, will be standing against a Conservative, Mark Spencer, in Sherwood. Ian lives in the constituency, in Hucknall. - Ray Barry, leader of the campaign group Real Fathers for Justice, will be standing against another Conservative, Anna Soubry, in Broxtowe. I should like to take this opportunity to thank all the men and women who have supported J4MB since its launch in February 2013, including those who have contributed to this manifesto. We've gone to considerable lengths to ensure that all the information we present is factually correct. If you should find any mistakes, or you believe any of the content to be misleading, please draw this to our attention. If you feel able to support J4MB in any way, please contact us. I invite you to make a donation, which will support our campaigning. Nobody associated with J4MB has ever drawn any personal income from donations, and we don't expect that to change in the foreseeable future, if ever. Thank you for your support, and for seeking justice for men and boys (and the women who love them).

Henry Miller: «Was für eine Entdeckung! Ich habe das Buch allen Leuten empfohlen. Die Sprache, die Gover da dieser vierzehnjährigen Prostituierten in den Mund legt, ist überwältigend.» Henry Miller behielt recht, dieses Buch wurde in der Tat die Sensation, die er vorausgesagt hat. Sein Autor wagt hier Kühnheiten, die selbst für heutige, schockgewohnte Leser nicht an der Tagesordnung sind. Kitten heißt die vierzehnjährige Göre, die Robert Gover einem verblüfften Publikum in den bedenklichsten Lagen unbedenklich vorstellt: Lolita und Zazie haben in ihr eine schwarzhäutige Schwester gefunden. James Cartwright Holland aber, Jimmy genannt, neunzehn Jahre alt, Collegeboy und Kitten für die Dauer eines Wochenendes ausgeliefert, könnte Babbitts Enkel sein. Jimmy und Kitten führen alternierend einen Monolog, der die Geschichte eines Mißverständnisses erzählt. Es geht dabei um grasgrüne 100 Dollar, die Jimmy hat und die Kitten haben will als rechtmäßiges Honorar für Dienste, die sie dem College-Studenten zunächst an ihrer nächtlichen Arbeitsstätte und schließlich in ihrem komfortablen Apartment leistet. Dabei geht ein ebenso komisches wie trauriges Spiel in Szene, denn die kleine Kitten, trotz aller Geschäfts- und Liebeskünste naiv und ehrlich geblieben, macht sich Hoffnungen, die der scheinheilige Jimmy partout nicht erfüllen will: dünkt den weißen Studenten der Umgang mit einer Schwarzen schon würdelos genug, hat sie seiner Männlichkeit wenigstens gratis zu erliegen.
