PUSS-I-FI-CA-TION: The act, or process, of a man being shamed, taught, lead, pastored, drugged or otherwise coerced or cajoled into throwing out his brain, handing over his balls and formally abandoning the rarefied air of the testosterone-leader-fog that God and nature hardwired him to dwell in, and instead become a weak, effeminate, mangina sporting, shriveled up little pussy. * From The Doug Giles 2016 Dictionary of Grow the Hell Up, You Pussy!In Giles' latest, and most raucous book, he takes 'Generation Pussy' from the warm wet womb of 'Pussville' to the rarefied air of 'Mantown.' This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market. It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners, but it will also be a breath of fresh air to young males who wish to be men versus hipster dandies.
Mostly for laughs
While I agree with the author, I was disappointed after all the hype I had heard with the end product. This is a collection of the authors rants.The sort of commentary which one might expect to hear after several beers at a hunt camp. After hearing the promotion of the book, I had hoped for a more serious discussion of the topic.
Sadly this book is written for the very pussies that won't read it. But entertaining and funny for the rest of us.
In Your Face short course in masculinity
Giles' confrontational style gets old, but his skewering of modern, heart-on-the sleeve semi-maleness is square on. His disclaimer that the title is related to "pusillanimous," though apt, seems ingenuous. We know what he means. However he by and large gives good advice about learning to start reclaiming lost masculinity.
H I L A R I O U S; perfect contemporary cultural self-analysis.
H I L A R I O U S. Just ‘Hilarious’ for those readers that fear open spaces; ie open-minded self-reflection. Read this only if you’re not brass-averse. If clinking brass brings the comfort of “wind-chimes,” grab your funny bone and enjoy.
Very rough but a lot of Truth!
This is very rough! No filter on this guy. But there's a lot of Truth to what he says.
To Be (a man) or Not to Be
Funny and appropriate for the times we are living in. I find his analysis of the subject of modern male effeminization to be spot on. A good guidebook for any man who is trying to be proud of his masculinity.
HOW TRUE; PC HAS UNDERMINED THE CHARACTER OF OUR COUUNTRY.
I'm 84 and a Navy vet but I had a hard reading through the book.
Good as a joke book, but takes itself more seriously than warranted
Book is basically a collection of micro-thoughts of the author on various things that according to him, make a man a "p. ussy". Was disappointed assuming it would be a well researched investigation into social issues, this is more of a collection of rants and clearly written to attract a certain low brow audience to part with their money.E.g. in one place, he cites Oxford University is "p ussified" because they avoided mentioning pork and pigs in some of their printed books, allegedly to "keep muslims happy". Doesn't give the context of why (they wanted the same books exprted to over 150 countries and thought removing those words would make them sell better with Muslim and Jewish buyers, not because anyone forced them to).E.g. he talks about "alpha males' being winners and leaders, then contradicts himself by citing Barack Obama as an example of a p.ussy (I am neither a supporter or detractor of Obama, but being the President is clearly an example of alpha, if there was ever such a thing)
