Mansfield's lecture is a reading from the first chapter of his book, which argues that manliness--what he defines as sexual rapacity, an appetite for war, a general bull-in-a-china-shop heedlessness--is preferable to the namby-pamby faggotistical mores being pressed on us by radical feminism and the castratory
mandates of late capitalism/twenty-first-century bureaucratic culture.
In an erotic thriller like Fatal Attraction, the woman with whom the man has forbidden sex is herself the castratory
threat, as when Alex comes at Dan with a knife.
More importantly, by deflecting murderous, sadistic, and castratory
rage onto an inanimate object, the fetish actually binds aggression and shields the love object from the fetishist's mutilating rage.
