Now This Beats All Hell!
Today, the scene replayed itself. In my stat log, I again observed a spike of incoming traffic to the CF article Ideas Which Go Against the Grain. But this time, the referring source was a Finnish blog called Ihmissuhteet: http://tinyurl.com/56wnlk
So go there, and see what is going on. Now, for me the Finnish language is a black wall of mystery—on a par with ancient Egyptian or Aramaic. It is not a bit like the familiar French, German, Spanish and Russian. Still, I was able to gather this much:
A men's activist in Finland, by the name of Henry Laasanen, has recently published a book (in 2008) called Naisten Seksuaalinen Valta, in which he elaborates a thesis very similar to what I outlined in Ideas Which Go Against the Grain. The blog post on 'Ihmissuhteet' contains; a.) a link to my CF article, and b.) a brief discussion somehow comparing it to Henry Laasenen's book. (If only I could understand Finnish!)
I was naturally intrigued, so I did some quick research on Henry Laasenen, and came up with this (in English): http://tinyurl.com/5nlhub
. . . and also this (in Finnish): a catalog description of Laasenens's book: http://tinyurl.com/2eqk36
Saving the best for last: I didn't notice at first (and I nearly overlooked it), but after a little more digging I discovered to my surprise that the blogmeister of 'Ihmissuhteet' is none other than Henry Laasenen himself!! Pleased to meetcha, Henry! ;-)
In conclusion, I would say this: Ideas Which Go Against the Grain is simply a counter-feminist essay. It is in no way "scientific", nor does it pretend to be so, and whoever might critique it from that standpoint would be barking up the wrong tree.
