Summary

Welcome to the troubling age of sex denialism - the age of gender-neutral labels, rigidly enforced equality, unisex spaces, and the systematic eradication of sexual difference. In her debut book, Sex Scandal, journalist Ashley McGuire investigates the alarming nationwide push to ignore the natural, biological distinctions between men and women that have been at the core of functioning human society since the dawn of time.

McGuire reports shocking examples of progressive sex denialism - from American schools, offices, bathrooms, and bedrooms - and reveals the most startling and alarming trend of all: that the frontline victims of our new "gender neutral" world are young women and girls, the very people progressive activists claim to be championing.

Great summary of the chaos of sexual revolution.

Important for everyone to read. Just feeling your way through all of the gender activism, slogans, laws, etc won't help you make sense of it. This book will.

Female abdication with classic male vilification

The author starts with a very sound premise. That to deny our biological differences is becoming detrimental to the sexes. But the author quickly turns into a classic case of “all men are trash” commentary while attempting to unsuccessfully thread a conservative needle by bashing on neoliberal college culture. Citing rampant rape, frat parties and binge drinking, while never allowing a real accountability to her own sex’s participation in the cultural attack. The author plays a game of Marie Antoinette by wanting her cake but not losing her head in the process. Instead she veils her comments and puts it squarely on men’s shoulders. Drawing more from anecdotes than citing methodology in research, I highly question the validity of this piece as anything more them chameleon politics, at its worst.

Hmm....

it's an interesting and important book... I'm glad it was told. my wish and hope is that it's not too late. And that the author isn't disregarded and cancelled in these times.

somewhat robotic presentation but...

underlines the seriousness of the topic in question. the reader was very easy to listen to though.

Great book

Makes the case that women (especially) and men need the ideas of the sex binary.
