“Like the arsenals first tested in experiments at MIT laboratories, gender-theory has been pre-tested in the climate of witch-hunts on college campuses, for application in new forms of nonviolent interstate warfare”

“Today, it is far more commonplace for men who formerly assumed a conservative approach to gender politics to later come forward as vigilantes touting ”male feminism”, surreptitiously opening a backdoor for returning patriarchy: it often seems impossible to distinguish the vigilanteism of men calling out ”sexism” with the conservative societal role of a man who steps in to ”defend women” and to reinstate ”respect for women”.”
