If you've already read Kate O'Beirne's Women Who Make the World Worse: And How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Sports and you're hungry for more writing by women who use feminism as a pinata, be patient: I see from Publishers Lunch (in its subscription-only edition for today) that Random House has just signed a book by syndicated columnist and "maverick conservative" Kathleen Parker that will be titled Save the Males.

For those who've never heard of Parker, go here for a thumbnail bio, and for a sample column that could well be in the book; it bears the charming title "Feminism's Devolution from Hoaxers to Whores." I probably won't surprise you when I tell you that the column bashes feminists for making straight men want to be "metrosexuals" -- a word right-wing pundits grab at greedily every time they're writing about the sexes, even though no one else in America has talked about metrosexuals for at least a year, much less met one.
