I agree with your statement to a point, but if O'Beirne is referring to the beginning of this feminist madness - especially the period between 1969-1971, then she is right on. Back then, men were caving in all over the place and I remember it very well! And, back then, the law still was not owned by the fembots: bear in mind that they were still marching in the streets and holding sit-ins at male only clubs and the like. They had to resort to those tactics precisely because they had yet to gain political and legal power.
Interesting No2fembot... reluctantly I will adjust my opinion to include those cowardly men of that time (I was quite young then and thankfully insulated from such things)... as far as I am concerned they belong in a separate category of androgen deficient, or worse, androgen insensitive 'males'.
