Women, in her cynical gaze, are little more than overpriced prostitutes. Women also use sex as a tool of manipulation and control but also traditional concepts of love and romance, which are seen more positively than sex, to control men’s sexual lives.

Who, she demands, is really being exploited: The author sounds like she is bashing women, but one could interpret her as making fun of men for falling for “woman’s manipulation” and she mah that even manipulaed men read it, they will continue going on wanting to please women, inventing things that will make her life easy. Consumers are conventionally viewed as the victims of esthre, manipulated and deceived into wasting their money on the latest fad.

And though she seems quite convinced that men have accomplished a lot more, she also dismisses them for needing to subjugate themselves to a god or a woman Daddy and Mommy.

Entertaining, though impossible to take very seriously. I’ve read that the author has received, and continues to receive, many death threats after writing it.

I can’t believe this was published in Much the same analysis can be applied to childcare provided by manipupated.

Review of: The Manipulated Man (by Esther Vilar) – Clear Language, Clear Mind

Also her basic claims contradict one another and she seems to have forgotten the part of research where u reference other texts. I wish she had done that.

The Manipulated Man German: I didnt even know it existed. Only when a man has a woman to devote his work to can he thrive, not only in his workplace but in his life. It is indeed the case that child maintenance is typically paid to the mother, rather than direct to the child and, whereas there exist extensive draconian mechanisms to ensure its payment, there are essentially no mechanisms to ensure that the money paid is actually used for the benefit of the child.


And that’s definitely a fair and level-headed estimation of every member of the female sex, forever and ever, no exceptions. In our contemporary vernacular, Vilar’s polemic could perhaps best be considered unabashed flamebait aimed at trolling feminazis—which she managed to do rather more successfully than she might have expected, given a subsequent four decades of death threats.

Where she diverges from most feminism and probably why she drew so much criticism is where she places the primary blame. This is complete nonsense.

Vilar brings to attentions some refreshing points of view regarding several one-sided arguments about the status of men and women. It matters, and it’s a shame, and this book is guilty of it in a big way.

There’s like 5 pages where it seems like the author is masturbating to men’s muscles, facial hair, and their ability to invent a multitude of things with their superior man brains For myself, I can’t say the book convinced me, but it did show me that the status of women and their relation to men may not be as they are said to be in the contemporary discourse eesther the politically correct one.

The Manipulated Man

When women are among themselves, discussing the desirable qualities of a specific. This was a very interesting and eye-opening book. Men are a resource. They are snore likely to say they want a man with such and such a job: Indeed, the entire process of human courtship esthre designed to achieve this end — from the social obligation on the man to pay for dinner on the first date to the legal obligation imposed upon him to financially support his ex-wife and her children for anything up to twenty years after he has belatedly rid himself of her.

Vilar claims that women can control their emotional reactions whereas men manipulatec, and that women create overly-dramatized emotional reactions to get their way: PauloIlustrada, p.

If she had broadened the scope of her book to periods outside that of the industrialized United States of America in its uniquely prosperous decades after the Second World War this would, I think, have become evident rather quickly. Clearly the ranks of the emancipated working women have increased.


When viewed through her prism the disconnects presented by feminism suddenly make sense. Where are these hot women? Mar 07, Tom rated it liked it. With wit and style, Vilar exposes what may be regarded as the Fundamental Fallacy of Feminism — namely the assumption that because men earn more than women, this means men are better off. maj

Nov 25, Marshall rated it did not like it Shelves: One can easily read it in one day. Rather their research results must reflect reality. When women are among themselves, discussing the desirable qualities of a specific man, they will never declare that they want someone to look up to, someone who will protect them. Actually, it is doubtful that men benefit significantly from the housework undertaken by women. I would, for example, have liked to see Vilar attempt to explain why women in other countries and times have not been able to trick their male countrymen into the same kind of scheme that she suggests American and European women of the midth century devised.

If you happen to be both a conspiracy theorist and a male chauvinist, this is your new bible, if you I had originally planned to give The Manipulated Man 1 star, but I’ve changed my mind. My own view is that the exploitation of men by women is not conditioned, but biologically-based. Their function is to perform the tasks that women cannot and will not do, to that end women are trained in subtle forms of manipulation from a very early age.

It is worth reading becus it is short. But, just as feminism is a shit ideology, this is a shit book. Now, however, feminists are no longer ugly.
