    1. Despite the fact I don't agree with most of the ideas, in general the book is recommended for reading to see what kind of attitude the author had towards women (a pretty denigrating one).

    2. Outdated trash was almost laughable because of the stupid statements it was making. The fact that it was written 120 years ago should not be an excuse for this abortion.
