Epub ↠ Bad Feminist ó Roxane Gay

Nny and insightful essays Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman of color while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years and commenting on the state of feminism today The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly i “Feminists are just women who don’t want to be treated like shit”Well Roxane Gay and I both have a favorite uote 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 I hadn’t read the books or watch the movies that were mentioned

Book Bad Feminist

Bad FeministNsightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society but also one of our cultureBad Feminist is a sharp funny and spot on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are and an inspiring call to arms of all the ways we still need to do better I 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 critiue 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 it adds nothing new to the discussion There's something to be said for elegant writing in its own right but this book doesn't offer such writing These read like the blog pieces they originally wereThis is a published essay collection This was her big spotlighted debut Considering the hype which preceded its publication this book should represent the very best criticism she can muster the most crystallized opinions the most exuisitely unfolded trains of thought If this meandering pointless collection of dressed up Tumblr posts is the best criticism she can offer to a publisher it's sorely disappointingEDIT Folks can take umbrage at the last third of this essay though I think if you're not ready to talk about your own history of sexual violence you're not obligated to but you can't mention that PRECISELY following an essay calling out other female writers for their failure to write explictly about their histories of sexual violence but there is no denying the rest of this review is spot freaking on 2 Two years later I'm knocking this book down to one star because it still makes me angry to see it on bookshelves I threw away my copy This book represents the worst that 21st century criticism has to offer thoughtless incurious lazy and ultimately devoid of rigor
