(From the publisher):
In the land of Egalia, the rules of society are different. Here, it is the wim who wield the power, control the government and the economy... while the menwim stay at home, minding the children and curling their beard bows. Everyone knows that menwim are inferior to wim--it's the way of nature.
But something is stirring in Egalia. The menwim are organizing to challenge the social structure and are calling themselves masculinists. They are demanding some answers to outrageous questions: Why must menwim grow up to be housebounds? Why should wim be the ones who can run off to sea and hold jobs, while the menwim must stay at home with no say in things at all? Why must menwim wear pehoes when wim get to wear what they want? And why is it that menwim should wish for nothing more than fatherhood-protection with a strong wom? Who says that a manwom is nothing without his protective wom? Menwim have rights too!
The masculist movement has Egalia in an uproar. When will all this menwim's lib nonsense stop? Where will all these ridiculous notions lead?
