"By some exquisite twist of grammatical irony, the German word for feminism, der Feminismus, is a masculine  noun, and deservedly so. In the Berlin of the early eighties you would have had to scour the institutions of hard-core Third World fundamentalism to find anything as deeply misogynistic, or blatantly paternalistic, as institutionalized feminism. Before you dismiss this statement as a piece of reactionary tosh, allow me to tell you a little story." Excerpt from KUNG FUK YU, by Meira Eliot. Kindle Countdown deal still running!
