Female Chauvinist


This is what I'm reading at the moment, a critique of modern feminist culture written by Ariel Levy, and I am very much enjoying it. Well not so much enjoying, its easy to read but I am horrified by some of the stories.
Quote from Hugh Hefner, 1967
"Consider the kind of girl we made popular: the
Playmate of the Month. She is never sophisticated, a girl you cannot really have. She is a young, healthy, simple girl-the girl next door... we are not interested in the difficult woman, the femme fatale who wears elegant underwear, with lace, and she is sad, and somehow mentally filthy. The Playboy girl has no lace , no underwear, she is naked, well washed, with soap and water, and she is happy."RAGE
