I often wondered where she got the anti-male, male-hating, male-bashing and downright obnoxious behaviour from..
It was her Mother...
Now I understand why Germaine Greer hates men
"Germaine Greer: "My father had decided pretty early on that life at home was pretty unbearable...it gave my mother an opportunity to tyrannize the children and enlist their aid to disenfranchise my father completely." (From Susan Mitchell. /Icons, Saints and Divas: Intimate Conversations with Women who Changed the World/, New York: Harper Collins, 1997.)"
Basically she hates men as a projection of her hate for her father who she says abandoned her and as such was not there to protect her from her tyrannical mother
