oh no

The New York Times reviews Norah Vincent's Self Made Man: One Woman's Journey Into Manhood and Back Again. And what better way to start off the review, thought critic David Kamp, than with some casual homophobia!
Flip the book open, and the first thing you come to is its dedication: "To my beloved wife, Lisa McNulty, who saves my life on a daily basis." Yes, ladies and gents, the author is a self-proclaimed "dyke." But "Self-Made Man" turns out not to be what it threatens to be, a men-are-scum diatribe destined for best-seller status in the more militant alternative bookstores of Berkeley and Ann Arbor. Rather, it's a thoughtful, diligent, entertaining piece of first-person investigative journalism.

But.....but you said it was by a "self-proclaimed "dyke""! How can it therefore be thoughtful, dilligent and entertaining? After all, Mr Kamp, you seem very surprised yourself that such a creature could write a book that wasn't a misandrist diatribe. For fuck's sake.
