About The Book
A landmark exploration of how male anxiety has come to define our political culture
What is the link between wimp factors, gender gaps, and holy wars — three recognizable political phenomena of the twenty-first century? In this eye-opening book on how male anxiety has come to shape political thinking and behavior, Dr. Stephen Ducat argues that there is a direct association between the magnitude of a man’s femiphobia and his tendency to embrace right-wing political opinions.
Dr. Ducat shows how anxious masculinity has been a discernible subtext in politics throughout the history of Western culture — from the political campaigns of ancient Greece to the current contest for the presidency, and including everything in between, like cartoons of George H. W. Bush exposing his ”wimp factor,” the demonization of Hillary Clinton, and the recent war in Iraq. He also explores why and how political issues — such as environmental protection, support for war, welfare reform, immigration, and crime and punishment — get gendered.
Analyzing various aspects of popular culture, such as editorial cartoons, political advertisements, and Freudian slips made by politicians — and drawing on his own pioneering research on the gender gap — Ducat illustrates how men’s fear of the feminine has been a powerful, if subterranean, force. Unexpectedly revealing, The Wimp Factor is a fascinating expose that will alter our understanding of contemporary politics.
