    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist Epub25 starsEssays are one of my favourite literary genres and recently I've read some amazing essay collections that have introduced me to new ideas and new writing styles so perhaps I put overly high expectations on Roxane Gay's essay collection Overall I'd have to say I was disappointed but this might have a lot to do with my high expectations and perhaps that I am not this book's intended audienceThe book started off quite well I liked the introduction in which Gay discusses what it means to be a bad feminist an imperfect woman in a world in which women are expected to strive for unattainable perfection at all times I was able to relate to the sentiment a lot of women have of wanting to steer clear of the feminist title because of its often negative connotations and also because of not understanding what the theory was truly about There are a few reasons why this book didn’t do it for me1 This book is too heavy on pop culture which isn't really for me I'm p

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubI became aware of the “I don’t need feminism because ” meme several months ago You know—those photos of young women holding up signs that read things like “I don’t need feminism because I am capable of critical thinking” or “I don’t need feminism because I am not a delusional disgusting hypocritical man hater” I shook my head rolled my eyes but still these weird declarations chilled me How d

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubTrite trivial narcissistic and vacuous beyond belief There's nothing thoughtful or interesting here the collection is one pretext after another for Gay to publicly exhibit her triviality and bad taste forgive herself for it and demand applause Readers are inveigled into service as Gay's indulgent confessors The repeated routine is a Gay admits to loving some god awful schlock b Gay ponders her own courage in making this disclosure c Gay discovers consuming this schlock is really both personally virtuous and politically salient which are indistinguishable You suspect I exaggerate? I understateOn Reality Television Reality television often gives the impression that like gender the whole of life is a performance The Los Angeles ma

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist Epub“Feminists are just women who don’t want to be treated like shit”Well Roxane Gay and I both have a favorite quote in common now and I'll also be calling myself a bad feminist because I would rather be a bad feminist than no feminist at allI went into this book not knowing much about the author I feel in love with her just with the intro I didn’t really connect with some of the stories especially the first third but things picked up towards the middle of this book and laughed out loud during the bits about Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey Overall I think it was hard to connect with some of the essays simply because

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubWell this was a huge disappointment I had such high hopes for Roxane Gay A Haitian American cultural critic with a master's and a nonperfect body type? Yes I was sure she would eviscerate popular culture and social injustice with an incisive eye and a unique perspective But nope These aren't really essays they're like unstructured wallowings ramblings that just flit from thing to thing and never get anywhere or lead to any new thinking Yes Gay takes stream of consciousness meanders through race and class and reality television and sexual violence and Twitter and respectability politics and Scrabble and The

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubIt's not very often that a book causes me to weep uncontrollably in public but this book did Roxane Gay moved me in a way that I haven't been moved in quite a while with this collection of essays ostensibly umbrella'd under the topic of feminism In reality only about a third of the essays directly address feminism Gay also addresses race culture and Scrabble competitions It's equal parts commentary memoir and critical analysis It's pretty phenomenal I don't even know where to begin when it comes to expressing how much I love the way this woman writes I could read her all day every day Even the essays whose theses I disagreed with I loved the way they were written Even the essays whose topics were beyond my realm of personal experience I loved the way they were written Then there's the fact that I absolutely

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubI feel like I'm taking crazy pills when people talk about Roxane Gay I went into this hoping to love this book hoping it would be revelatory as promised or that I would be better off for having read it But it was a slog to get through and I can't recommend it to anyone who's spent than a cursory 5 minutes on the internet reading cultural criticism It isn’t simply that she fails to offer nuanced critique or that she contradicts herself it's that these essays are horribly written They're terribly sloppily constructed Fully half of the essays in this collection have my scribble in the margin What the hell is her thesis? Where is she going with this? There's no POINT to it all except to point out that racism and sexism still exist and are reflected and amplified by our pop culture artifacts No duh? I guess if all she did was rehash these issues in a coherent thoughtful and elegant way that would be enough I can recommend a beautiful piece of writing even when i

    Paperback ì Bad Feminist Epub ñ feminist free, Bad Feminist EpubI've been on the look out to read feminist books but most of the ones I tried reading before focus heavily on either privileged males and or sexual assaults which then leads to me feeling terrified to leave my homeHowever Bad Feminist focuses on Gay's opinions about “misogyny institutional sexism that consistently places women at a disadvantage the inequity in pay the cult of beauty and thinness the repeated attacks on reproductive freedom violence against women and on and on” And I felt strongly included Roxane Gay's wit is so sharp and on point I couldn't help but be instantly swept away into her writing voice Her essays reached me made me feel like I was a part of something “I am a bad feminist I would rather be a bad feminist than no feminist at all”In Bad Feminist Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman of color while
