After feminists taught me that there was such a thing as men's rights, I ran & got a copy of Farrell's first book "The Liberated Man," and it was a paradigm changer for me. Farrell probably had just as much to do with me becoming a radical feminist as Dworkin, Crenshaw, etc. He's an interesting person, even if I disagree w him a lot these days - when he veered towards debunked, cringey evo-psych in this interview I had to turn it off before I lit everything on fire like Carrie, though.

I have absolutely fallen in love with this podcast. I'm not a man but I do have wonderful men in my life, and I get SO MUCH out of listening to the thoughtful, open, and honest conversations that take place here. It's incredibly refreshing to hear men talk about how they figured out what their particular issues were and how they went about working on themselves. They don't gripe about and blame everything on women, so that I'm much more mindful of what they're saying. Big kudos to these guys.
