I read articles in both the Daily Mail and the The Telegraph about the following book:From The Daily Mail By Annette Witheridge
Male author set to top bestsellers list with book telling women how to get a man - keep slim, stay home and cook dinner
A self-help guide that tells women to follow their man’s orders if they want to keep him has become an unlikely hit.
The book, titled The Re-education Of The Female, also says women should wear sexy clothes while doing the cooking and cleaning.
'The Re-Education of the Female', by single father Dante Moore, puts the blame for women being unable to find a good man squarely where he says it belongs: 'On the female'.
Stay skinny, cook, clean, wear sexy clothes, and do whatever he says because men are here to command - that is the way to catch yourself a good man, says Moore.
And with chapter headings like 'Appearance, Appearance, Appearance', 'You Knew He Was a Bum When You Met Him', and 'Are You an Indirect Prostitute?' he aims to force women to re-evaluate themselves and - ahem - clean up their acts.
Why does he feel such an overpowering urge to do this?
Because, Moore writes in his introduction: 'I want to express my anger and frustration as a man with the women I feel are mis-educated, misinformed, and ill-prepared about their responsibilities in getting and maintaining a relationship with a man of quality.'
Moore, a computer engineer and 33-year-old father of an 11-year-old boy, insists he is doing this out of love for women.
Growing up in America he only met his father a handful of times, he told the Washington Post, but was raised by his mother, two sisters, two aunts and two female cousins.
When he was a boy his mother told him he had to treat a woman 'like a queen'.
He tried that, he insists. For two years. And he lost every girlfriend he had.
Author Dante Moore, who claims he wrote the book out of love for women
So, he decided, it was time for a change. 'Once I started being myself and saying, 'look, I'm not going to do this, this, or that for women,' the phone didn't stop ringing,' he said.
It wasn't long before he decided to spread the wealth of his realisation.
Women, he insists, make it 'much harder than it is' to get a man. He distills a man's every desire down to three basic things: food, relaxation, and, of course, sex.
And all a woman has to do to fill those desires is stay skinny and sexy, cook, clean, and do whatever the man says.
'Here's a little secret, ladies,' he writes. 'Men never really ask for anything. They command.'
Echoing the sentiments of Beyonce's hit single 'Irreplaceable', he adds: 'And believe me, what you won't do, ten broads around the corner will.'
Size does matter, he says - very much. '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.'
************************************************Similarly from The Telegraph
The Re-education Of The Female, by first-time author Dante Moore, advises women to follow their man's orders.
Despite the chauvinist opinions, copies have been flying off the shelves in the US.
One piece of advice reads: "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."
Mr Moore, a 33-year-old computer engineer, who has never married, continues: "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."
Mr Moore, who has an 11-year-old son from a previous relationship and has a girlfriend, says he has never found true love.
He insists all he wants to do is help women because he loves women. He grew up in a house with his mother, two sisters, two aunts and two female cousins.
Dr Gilda Carle, US feminist and TV therapist, has questioned Mr Moore's advice however.
She said: "He's never found the one, fallen in love and got married, so what make him an expert?
"Frankly, I would like to get any woman who has ever dated him on my therapist's couch."
So what do you think readers:
Is this guy for real and does he believe what he wrote or is he very clever because his aim was to sell books and he's certainly doing that and probably making a fortune. The cynical me will opt for the latter, and I certainly won't be buying the book even though it sound like a good
.........when I read the article to Embee he said and I quote:"I'm a tad disappointed you didn't cook dinner in a pink bra and frilly knickers" and we had a good laugh.
