The "natural inferiority" of women

Hey, it's a book title. Written by a woman, too - Tama Starr. She subtitled it "Outrageous Pronouncements by Misguided Males", but I won't hold that against her. What could be wrong with a book whose title was taken from a quote by the Marquis de Sade?

It has some great quotes:
People ask me how many children I have and I say one boy and seven mistakes - Muhammad Ali
What do women need money for? - Mick Jagger
The only way to resolve a situation with a girl is to jump on her, and things will work out. - Lee Marvin
There's marital guidance too:
A bride received into the home is like a horse that you have just bought: you break her in by constantly mounting her and by continually beating her - Chinese proverb
That's one of the tamer ones.

She was doing so well, but then she went and fouled it all up by writing Eve's Revenge - Saints, Sinners and Stand-up Sisters on the Ultimate Extinction of Men, in which she offers slurs like the following:
What do you call that useless flap of skin at the end of a penis?
Where do you find a man who's committed?
Women who want to be equal to men lack imagination - Timothy Leary
So it looks like she just can't make up her mind. Isn't that just like a woman....

The latter book was published in 1993, too early to include one of my favorites, from here(some graphics might not be appropriate for work):
Men are like linoleum. If you lay them right the first time, you can walk on them for 20 years. - Brett Butler
