Her forty-some odd years of life have definitely not rendered Professor Gay at all complacent, that is the one thing that I feel comfortable saying for sure.
I honestly think just listing the chapters. tell you what topics she dares discuss could sell you on reading it, so basically that is all I am going to do in this "review." Enjoy... haha. #lazyblogger
Towards the beginning of the book, in the section GENDER & SEXUALITY Gay discusses likability and I agree with most of her points BUT I think her saying that she likes Nellie Olsen more than Laura Ingalls-Wilder is ludicrous and doesn't prove her point because Laura does not conform to societal norms at all. I have had a deep love for LIW since my mother and I read the books when I was a little girl; I will be reviewing her newly published autobiography ASAP.
Gay rips 'The Help' and 'Jango Unchained' two huge new glorious ass holes.
12 Years a Slave
The Alienable Rights of Women
a few things I have in common with Gay //
+ I also KNOW NOTHING about cars and I definitely don't want to be good at cars.
+ I also think that "We need to be able to argue beyond the thread of privilege."

This book is not just for women, not just for girls, it will enlighten whomever reads it. This book has a message for everyone. And I strongly encourage my male readers to pick it up. Read it without shame on the bus, in spite of it's pink cover and feminine content there is nothing you need to know more about than the female experience. Until you really start to try and understand what your sisters, your girlfriends and mothers experience you will never be able to help. You have to learn the language, listen to all versions of the struggle before you can start to challenge your brothers, your bowling buddies and your father in-laws to start speaking, acting and thinking differently.
