Women as Blood-Thirsty Harridans

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, normally, the Manolo ignores the hundreds of press releases he receives each day, but occasionally, something will leap out at him and cause him to fear for our society.
American Suite, by Diana Sheets
Such is the case with this press release touting the new book, American Suite.

Adventure comedy with a fabulist tint – American Suite humorously challenges our notions of what it means to be American today…

Champaign, IL, February 16, 2011 – What woman didn’t laugh in amazement when Lorena Bobbit hacked off her husband’s schlong as he slept or watch in disbelief as dentist Clara Harris drove her Mercedes over her philandering husband until she knew he was dead!


The Manolo suspects that this introduction is the work of the misguided publicist, and not that of the author, Diana Sheets, who appears to hold the opinions that are in direct opposition to the Medea-like glee expressed above.

    I have to admit, I laughed in amazement.
    I think the operative words there are amazement and disbelief. The laughing bit is not because it’s funny.

  2. TTT Says:

    To the extent that one gender dehumanizes the other, it is women who do so to men, rather than the other way around.

    Read the Misandry Bubble here for much more.

    The good news is that more men are waking up to how America is a female supremacist society.

    What IF men actually showed up to the gender war?

    A young woman in the church choir that I admire, usually wears very nice heels. Last Sunday she wore flats. She doesn’t know that I notice her. How can I tell her not to do that again.

  4. Schmendrick the Grammarian Says:

    You admire the church choir, and yet you want a young woman in it not to again not know that you notice her?

  5. Joey Joe Joe Says:

    Is this a shoe fetish? If so, just complement her on her heels the next times she wears them. Then get some counselling.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    There are billions of perfectly good women outside the U.S. Why be limited to a hellhag?

    sound advice

    Actually, women did a lot worse than laugh in amazement. When Lorena Bobbit was acquitted of maiming her husband, women all over the United States broke out cheering. It was such a phenomenon it was headline news. Ordinary women. Women I knew. I have rarely been so disgusted.

    When women indulge in castration fantasies as an imagined revenge for rape, I tolerate it because a) it could be a legitimate act of self defense, if executed in timely fashion, and b) we should never forget the legitimate retributive component of criminal justice. Justice is NOT just prophylactic.

    But Mr. Bobbit did not rape anybody. Rather, his wife suspected him of cheating. The gender-switched analog would be if a man cut his wife’s breasts off because he suspected her of cheating.

    Can anyone imagine the men of America cheering such a heinous act? No, and for good reason. It would simply never happen, and not because we have been socialized out of such thoughts. Any normal man, from his own native judgment, would crack the skull of anyone he saw assaulting a woman that way. Yet women en masse cheered an equivalent evil.

    There is something missing from the woman’s moral makeup that our society has not addressed. Girls, we love you, but an awful lot of you have a capacity for evil that is untouched by conscience, and it is not just latent.

    An Air Force study of rape accusations required accusers to submit to lie detector tests (something only the military could do). Faced with this prospect, 27% of female accusers admitting before testing that their accusations were false. Of those who maintained their accusations, investigators judged that about half were lying, yielding an estimated total of 61% false charges (details at my link).

    Yikes. I would guess that this same capacity for conscience-less evil is on display in probably about half of all divorce cases.

    spend just one hour watching t.v. ads and you will ‘learn’ that men are filthy, idiotic children and that women are godlike creatures of vastly superior intelligence and competence. merely looking at a woman the wrong way is a capital offense but everyone thinks that a man being hit in the genitals is absolutely hilarious. we are constantly harangued about alleged misogny, but it’s misandry that is rampant in our culture.

  10. ChaChaheels Says:

    Holy Troll invasion!

  11. TTT Says:

    er…pointing out that the US has become a female supremacist society is not ‘trolling’.

    Learn how to debate intelligently (I doubt it is possible in your case).

  12. Tina Hansen Says:

    This is for the person who commented on the girls shoes in church. 1. I too often drift while in church 2. Not enough to notice a change so specific as that but to each is own. 3. No need to say something to girl about shoe choice…creepy not helpful.

    It’s great that the guys aren’t all touchy and shrill about this. Seriously, it’s great.

    What woman didn’t laugh in amazement when Lorena Bobbit hacked off her husband’s schlong

    Actually, I was horrified and thought she should have gone to prison.

  15. The gold digger Says:

    Oops. Stupid backslash detail.
