An interesting way to read Choke

I just finished reading Choke for the second time around and I thought of an interesting way to read it. Try reading the novel as a reactionary text to the feminism movement. Victor Mancini is basically controlled and manipulated by the women in his life throughout the course of the book. While this isn't how I read it, it could be argued that Victor's plight could be a reaction to feminism, showing that men can certainly be victimized by women too, there are husbandbeaters too.
I discern different meanings from the text than this, I know someone who is a man hating feminist cliche. While I know not all feminists are like this, thinking of her while I was reading the novel made me come up with this possible reading.
Wondering if any Cult members had any thoughts on that...
