The Garbage Generation: On the Need for Patriarchy

It is written from a secular perspective and includes a few things with which the owner of the FishEaters Website would definitely quibble, and it doesn't even mention the importance of chastity on the part of men, too, which is sad. But it most certainly makes its case about the need for patriarchy, destroying the myth of women being innocent, sexless little fluffballs in the process -- a quite necessary destruction in that reaching the goal of chastity shouldn't be based on lies and pious tales about the reality of human nature -- women being a little more than half of all humans.
