Summary
A bizarre sex role reversal novel in the world of the future where feminism has run completely amuck. Boys are raised to be passive and girls are raised to be tough, mean, and aggressive. The women of this world have taken on the superficial characteristics of men. They are parodies of men as the men are of women. They must use dildos on their boy-slaves in order to luxuriate in their absolute domination of them. Sex is presented as power. The main character of the novel is the completely feminized male secretary Goergie Cornell, who dresses and acts like a woman, and has major psychological problems. The book serves as a warning for those who wish to defy nature and try to "masculinize" women
