Going into the- female" organ! organ! l- q m, he shows how and why women , are the weaker sex, more primitive j ly developed, physically and even in- I ieliectually more inept. He attacks j 'hi popular notion that men and j \votm-n are in any way alike. Then j he moves to a candid and excellent i study of th« sex natures, detailing the growth of feminine frigidity and j pointing to this as a sign of fast | degeneration.
