Appears to be a wingnut radio talk show host. He also writes for the Townhall. And the way he writes! Here is his review of the newest Independent Women's Forum gals' little piece on how feminism has been really awful in..er...liberating women. Carrie Lukas is the penwoman Giles adores here:
In an April 22 column touting a new book by Carrie Lukas -- director of policy for the conservative Independent Women's Forum -- conservative radio host and columnist Doug Giles slurred feminists as "misogynists with vaginas" and praised "lassies" who "[d]on't want their vagina turned into a sexual turnstile."
Giles wrote that in Lukas's upcoming book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex and Feminism (Regnery Publishing, May 2006), Lukas "shreds the lies which the female chauvinist pigs (FCP) have sold our nation's fair ladies" and "shows the women who would be women the true identity of postmodern day feminists: misogynists with vaginas ... womyn who not only hate men, but women also."
Another cool thing about The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex and Feminism is that it was a young, accomplished woman, who also happens to be a happy wife and mother, who penned this work of non-fiction. These are not the crayon scribblings of some repressed, backwoods, barefoot, unenlightened Ellie Mae Clampett, but rather a girl who got her bachelor's at Princeton, her Masters at Harvard and did it without drinking the lesbians' -- I mean the feminists' -- Kool Aid.
This book is going to liberate ladies to be ladies; and contrary to the propaganda belched forth via our universities and MSM, there are a whole lot of lassies who:
1. Like being a woman, in a traditional sense. *I'll take a Katharine McPhee over a Hillary any day.
5. Look to their husband's to provide rather than looking to the feminists' sugar daddy, Uncle Sam.
Me a lassie? Hmmmmmmmm. My vagina a turnstyle? When did feminism require that? Should I hand in my membership card?
So I looked up more good advice Doug gives us misogynists with vaginas. He has a series of posts on how to bring up boys which feminists will hate. This is supposed to be a good idea, let me hasten to point out, because we feminists hate boys and men and also womanly women. Most interestingly, Doug has two daughters and no sons, so his advice is based on lets-pretend.
The series begins most promisingly: with the Creation story from the Bible:
Yeah, mom and dad, if . . . if . . . you dare to raise your boy as a classic boy in this castrated epoch, then you've got a task that's more difficult than getting a drunk Ted Kennedy to hit the urinal at Chili's.
Get it right, mom and dad—you are rowing against the flotsam and jetsam of Sally River. I hope you have a sturdy ideological paddle and some serious forearms, because postmodernism is determined to keep your boy and his testosterone at bay. Yes, they will attempt at every turn to either drill it or drug it out of him.
Parent, if you're groping for a creedal oar to help you stem the increasingly stem-less effete environment, I've got a novel idea: Howzabout going back to the Bible, in particular the book of Genesis, and see what God the Father created His initial kid to be. Check this out.
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.
Born to be Wild.
First off, parents, please note that the cradle God created for His firstborn was rough country—a thorny, critter-laden and butt-kicking badland. God wanted His boy brought up in undomesticated surroundings. The feral fashioned something in God's first boy, Adam, that Xbox, the mall and cell phones just couldn't provide to the charge under His tutelage.
Yeah, God's earthy 2IC was directly connected to the Spirit of the Wild. Adam lived in primitive partnership with untamed beasts, birds, big lizards and monster sharks. This is the way it was. And God said, "It is good!" Imagine that: good being equated to having no anti-bacterial gel, no bike helmets, no Trans Fatty acids, no poodles, no motorized scooters, no concrete and no Will and Grace. I know this doesn't sound like "paradise" for postmodern pantywaists that are immoral, lazy, stupid and fat, but it was God's—and His primitive son's—idea of "Yippee Land."
I get it. God created Adam when it was really rough and wild and tough. That's what makes boys different from girls. Because girls were not created when it was really rough and wild and tough. They were created in the pink frilly stage, once Adam had tamed and subdued every other thing and needed something more to work on.
Giles goes on about the Bible a lot. The Bible is a Wilderness Guide for him and also a book that can be read to find out ways make boys more masculine. More wild, I meant. Boys are wild and girls are domesticated. How did that happen?
Giles answers that question in the next column:
The day has come when you, as a parent, are going to have to be defiant for your son's masculine rights and upbringing. The man haters have an ideological agenda and some prescription med's ready to rid your boy of all his distinct behavioral traits—and it's your job, mom and dad, to make certain these jack asses don't lay their gloves on him. Pink Floyd's "Hey, teacher, leave these kids alone" line from "Another Brick in The Wall" takes on a whole new meaning in this new millennium as far as sons are concerned.
One great source for rebellious inspiration comes from the Bible. The scripture is a great font for prissy, culture-defying fodder. In the scripture you see the men being men, and the demons being scared. You don't have to wade very far through the holy text before God starts laying down His blueprint for the boys. You find God's plan in book one, chapter one.
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.
What does God want His kid with the gonads to be? Well, here are six of the characteristics: a kid who is comfortable in the wild, who's ready to rule, is a savvy steward, is a dragon slayer, pursues wisdom and reflects the image of God. Having covered the necessity of the wild in your kids' upbringing in last week's column, let's check out God's desire to make him a conqueror.
Born to Rule/Take Dominion.
God's initial earth boy was born to dominate creation and to exercise authority over the planet. God designed His first terrestrial son to be a leader, to take charge, to exert influence. Yaweh didn't construct Adam to be a passive clod, some indolent handout addict who abnegates his responsibility to other people or institutes; but rather, Adam was to be a bold and imaginative chief. This is the very thing the misandrists hate in men and are trying desperately to curb in your kid, namely, this can-do spirit.
Ok. I get it now. Boys are wild because they are born to rule and to take dominion, and any attempt to fight this is being a misogynist with a vagina. Probably because if ALL boys are born to rule and to take dominion, what is there left to rule over or dominate? Yes, that's what the fair lassies were created for! How stupid of me. I never before realized that feminists are spoiling all the fun Giles had pretending that he lived all alone in the wilderness while ruling everything he saw from some high perch.
I'm sure you get the idea of this series of columns by now. It goes on in the same manner. The goal is to make little can-do kings with can-kill guns out of all boys but also to make them clean their rooms and read books, and all that is a lot easier if the "fair lassies" like being subjugated a lot. The latter can be made much easier if those who advocate gender equality can be labeled as misogynists-with-vaginas.
Though Giles is refreshingly horrible in his anger and in his naive view of the Bible. There's hardly any pretense in his opinion pieces, and what little there was I have removed above for your benefit. But does this guy have some psychological problems! He hates me, for example, even though he has never laid eyes on my divine features (though of course he'd probably try to hex me or something, being the manly Christian he is, worshipping his manly guy god), and he makes all sorts of silly assumptions about what feminists do.
Living such a dualistic life must be pure agony, though. If masculinity is so brittle that it will not survive anything less than a godly bootcamp-in-the-wilderness and the assurance that every single man is entitled to be a dragon-slayer and a king, well, we indeed are in deep shit. But that shit is not something that feminists should be blamed for.
