The genre of self-help dating books and magazine columns is very popular in mainstream media. I think that a lot of self-help books actually might be in the mainstream, but I do feel like a lot of people of color are drawn to self-help sections of bookstores as well. Could you talk a little bit about your process in deciding to write this book, and actually writing it.
Writing a book is really hard. I took a really derivative path to finding my voice. This idea of women being blamed is also something that comes up in your book. Part of the [reason] that women are blamed for declining relationships is because up until this moment in history, or even in the last thirty years, it was just assumed that men could do whatever they wanted and women had to compensate for that and they were the people that held family together. And so we have this huge demographic shift where that is not necessarily the role that women play.
What is their role in it and how do we shift the focus? Do we abandon a normative family structure? We are in a completely new place right now so how do we move forward?

At a dinner party recently, I encountered the depressingly familiar sight of a dynamic thirty- something woman accompanied by a nerdy male sidekick that she’d browbeaten into proposing to her. The mismatch in power was obvious. She was successful, ambitious and confident; he was a diffident, overweight, shrinking violet who measured every word he spoke in case he said anything remotely contentious that might offend her.
On her wedding finger was the most enormous, glittering engagement ring. That huge diamond was his declaration of surrender in the sex war. But I didn’t feel sorry for the stupid sap; he should have been man enough to tell her to get lost and find some other dummy. Instead, he’d been sucker-punched into a lifetime of nagging and neglect, and looking at his bossy wife-to-be parading her huge rock, I felt a shiver of pre-emptive schadenfreude. Her smug smile might have given the impression that her glossy-magazine-inspired life was all going to plan, but I could see the tragedy to come.
One day she’ll realise how dull and unfulfilling it is to have a man who doesn’t answer back, who offers no challenge or danger – but by then she’ll be over the hill and stuck with him for fear of being left on the shelf. Sadly, this is the state of many marriages today. Back in the Nineties, emboldened by the successes of feminism, women sought to slay the dragon of patriarchy by turning men into ridiculous cissies who would cry with them through chick-flicks and then cook up a decent lasagne.
Suddenly, women wanted to drive home their newfound equality by moulding men to be more like them. This velvet revolution was reflected in a series of broader cultural changes. After decades of uncompromising movie heroes like Marlon Brando and Clint Eastwood, we were asked to fall for stuttering, floppy-haired fops like Hugh Grant; touchy-feely and hopelessly embarrassed around women.
Five Ways Feminism Has Made Women Miserable
All over the world, straight men are making the conscious decision not to be involved with women. This isn’t a decision in any sort of metaphorical sense. These men are literally cutting women out of their lives, completely. It’s not a spiritual choice—like becoming ordained as a Catholic priest—nor is it a socioeconomic problem, like Japan’s herbivore men.
It is more of an ideological celibacy, one that crosses both national borders and religious divides. And the basic reason is the slow crawl toward gender equality.

Since the first-wave of feminism in , the word feminist has taken many forms to back civil rights movements and political agendas. Being a college feminist has destroyed the chances of ever looking at dating the same way again.

Imagine yourself as a woman who had been disappointed by her romantic history. She turns her bitterness towards all males by deeming men to be horrible, irredeemably predatory scum. She became this way after being indoctrinated by an ideology that preaches the inherent evilness of masculinity and therefore must be destroyed. These males, like their feminist sisters, are people who are corrupted by the least intelligent and utterly damaging ideas of nihilism.
I pressed harder to ask if he could elaborate on exactly what he meant by that. Every girl acts like a dude and has to have more guy friends than her actual boyfriend.
