Just in case you thought it was the man drought that was keeping you single, here is a new book to put you straight. The Re-education of the Female by Dante Moore is all about how women need to make themselves more attractive to men by being skinny homemakers available for sex 24/7. Really, it’s that simple.

Just in case you don’t believe me, here is the editors overview from Amazon:

Product Description
Finally a male point of view — usually when it comes to breaking down relationships between men and women you hear advice from over-the-hill psychologists or unqualified doctors but not the average male, and never a masculine brother with any kind of urban flavor. The Re-Education of the Female changes that. For years, women have been the more communicative gender. Now women will have an idea of what the men in their lives may be thinking; and in some cases, why they think a certain way. Women will gain insight on some of the actions and behaviors portrayed by men, which once may have been deemed judgmental, insensitive, or just plain rude. Dante Moore has depicted the male psyche from many different angles on how a man not only perceives women, but how one relates and responds to them as well.

It’s written in black and white, with a no-holds-barred approach — forcing women to take a step back and think a moment before engaging in conversations, relationships, affairs, sexual encounters, and more with the opposite sex. Keeping it real and delivering the all-out truth was undoubtedly Moore’s main focus when writing this book. Although candid and direct, this book will prove to be very enlightening as it gives intimate details on what men are looking for physically, mentally, socially and emotionally versus what they’re actually witnessing, experiencing and in some cases, tolerating.

A mature and open-minded intellect will really understand and appreciate this representation of the male point of view. This book is the perfect starting point for women to evaluate themselves with a little more detail, before pointing fingers and tossing blame at the endless reasons surrounding why they can’t find a “good man.”

That’s right ladies, for too long men have been tolerating us! Throw away those tracksuit pants and while your at it everything you wear to work because you won’t be needing that either and get into something less comfortable. Then clean the house from top to bottom, get the kids in bed and be wearing your sexiest lingerie. Not the stuff you just cleaned the house in obviously. No, I haven’t read this book, nor do I intend to. But I think I can take a pretty good guess at what it’s about. Strangely enough, the author hasn’t been able to find that special woman to spend his life with. I wonder why, I mean he knows exactly what he wants.

  1. Oh Lordy. FINALLY, a male point of view. FINALLY. Because male POVs are so under-represented, like, everywhere.
    I’m laughing because I don’t want to cry.

  2. A mature and open-minded intellect. Is that wankbucket-speak for ‘sit down and shut up, little lady’?

  3. After six months of psychotherapy for both of us and a great deal of angst and introspection, my (now ex-)husband’s prescription to save our marriage was (said not only to me, but to our shrinks as well) “If you would just be sexy again, everything would be all right.”
    That was the end, the last tiny thread that bound me to him snapped at that.

  4. I don’t think I need to read this book as I have already seen Weird Science.

  5. HAAAAhahahahaha.

    He obviously wrote his own cover blurb.

  6. It is, Bene. From the WaPo:

    Read his book, ladies, and you can snag a catch just like him. Your responsibilities include cooking, staying skinny, wearing sexy things around the house and doing whatever your man tells you to do (because, Moore writes, “Here’s a little secret, ladies: men never really ask for anything. They command. . . . And believe me, what you won’t do, ten broads around the corner will.”)

    He’s a special snowflake alright.

    In his book, size matters — a lot: “The fatter you get, the more you decrease your potential single-man pool. Let me give you an example. When you go to the grocery store to shop, do you pick out the nastiest-looking, most rotten, smelliest fruit or meat you can find? Oh, you don’t? Why not? . . . It’s the same with men when they see baby elephant-sized, out-of-shape women.”

    I thought this was vanity press, but it says “Strebor Books” on the Amazon page. Strebor appears to be a very small press focussing on books that should be featured on the Judge A Book By Its Cover blog.

  7. And if that “masculine brother with any kind of urban flavor” is as black as he sounds, his MOMMA’s gonna bust him upside the hed when she reads that literary gem.

  8. My Mum has a series of books from the 70s (Real men don’t eat quiche – complete with manly recipe-book sequel) that covers exactly the same territory. The publishing area of masculine insecurity and regulation has been quite the niche throughout the entirety of modern history.
