Protesters seized upon the fact that most of Bateman's hostility is directed toward women. However, Harron points out that she and Turner were actually struck by what an anti-male document AMERICAN PSYCHO was. "I think 'American Psycho' is very feminist," Turner stresses. "It's easy to believe that because the character is misogynist, the story is too. But, it was obvious to me there was something going on beneath the horror. For instance, the book shows how the excesses of the 1980s were manifested in warped relations, not only between men and women but also among men. That's where a lot of the humor lies, in poking fun at these peacocks who are so strangely preoccupied with one another. It ends up being an indictment of machismo and misogyny."
