...has not been abandoned, in case anybody has noticed it's been stuck at chapter 17 for several months. I've just reviewed chapter 8, and for any newcomers this will give a quick feel for what kind of guy your Emperor is. The title is meant to be slightly ironic, as he in fact loves women (in a 'love-hate' way which may be more common in men then we dare or are allowed to admit). The aim of the story is to combine stroke elements with more serious reflections on men's rights, but taking a slightly tongue in cheek approach. The reader is left to decide whether the narrator is serious about what he thinks, and male readers particularly are invited to look inward at their own true feelings, and all are invited to support or criticise the Emperor.
