“They’re too fat (ugly/mean/annoying/manly etc.)” they say.
But what are they doing about it?
Joe Bovino is one of the few men taking action. In Bitchology, he tells women what men really want and why their feminist, ‘you-go-girl’ attitude is not the answer.
When Joe wrote both the Field Guide to Chicks of the United States (Amazon) and Chicaspotting (Review) he received a ton of hate. And this wasn’t just from random people on Twitter, major “news” outlets went after him. Lindy West wrote ‘The 92 ‘Species’ of Women, According to an Incredibly Stupid Dude From a P90X Video’ in Jezebel, and Emma gray wrote “Joe Bovino’s ‘Field Guide To Chicks Of The United States’ May Be Worst Book Ever” (You can Google these, I want give them the pageviews). For Chicaspotting, the Amazon sales page was flooded with 1-star reviews.
I’m not quite sure what these women were so angry about. The book was not violent or “misogynistic”. It was written in good taste. Rather the women were pissed off that Joe could so effectively profile women, getting rid of their special snowflake/princess image.
In Bitchology he caricatures more types of American women, but not in a flattering light. These are the ‘bitches’ of America, from the silicone tittied blondes of Miami to the 49’er in San Francisco. All the women you love to hate are there.
A Book Women Need
At first glance one might imagine that Bitchology is just a fun caricature of American women, but it actually goes much deeper. It is a polemic against 3rd-wave feminism and the disastrous effect it has had on American women.
The idea that women should be promiscuous, demanding, forego grooming among other annoying habits was not an idea women came to simultaneously. It was an ideology that has been spoon fed to the from the left. It’s not stopping either.
While women claim that this is ‘empowering’ them, it’s actually having negative effects on their minds and bodies. Obesity among women is rampant. And so are mental illnesses. Why would any women benefit from this?
The truth is that becoming a ‘keeper’ as Joe calls it is hard work. It requires upkeep, discipline, and aspirations to become more than a club rat.
Like his other books, the drawings of the ‘Bitches’ are spot on and hilarious. The artists do a great job capturing (and often exaggerating) the features of these ladies, whether it’s a blonde bimbo from LA or cougars from NYC.
Moreover, the book is well-researched. The subject-matter at first glance may not seem that high-brow, but even just reading the quotes at the beginning you can tell he really dove into this. That’s important for this book because he’s really trying to reach women and explain to them that they’ve been bamzboozled.
My concern is that women won’t pick this book up and read it. Instead they’ll just leave a 1-star review because some writer on Jezebel told them to. Hopefully I’m wrong.
Moreover, guys will get a lot out of this book. It’s both insightful and entertaining, and an enjoyable read all-around.
