Sissified Sex Literature Literature is becoming emasculated by being written mainly for women and largely by women. The majority of men in this country, having been co-educated by women teachers, are unaware of this directly, but become vaguely impressed that something is the matter later in life. I call it the sissification of literature and life. The point of view of the modern "important" novel like "Ulysses" is feminine in its preoccupation with the nastiness of sex.
