Ah, but it's always been my opinion (and I'm fairly sure I've read somewhere
an essay by someone agreeing with it) that Amis, while falsely accused of
"sexism," could be quite rightly accused of misogyny.  Amis didn't think
women were -inferior-, he just didn't seem to much like them (not in the
sense of being homosexual, just in the sense of actively disliking the way
he thought women saw the world and acted in it).

I don't think this is true of Wolfe (who seems to have gotten on with the
women in his life somewhat better than Amis, as well), but both share the 
sometimes controversial perception that women and men, in general, have some
very different ways of seeing and doing things--and not in a trite, "Mars
and Venus," sense of this either.
