This book doesn’t hate men, but it knows they’re flawed—it knows that our world, and its system of privileges, is wholly warped…that it continues to need fixing
We all have individual hierarchies of beauty and hygiene importance, which often read as superficial. But leaving it at that is shortsighted–for my writerly ass, at least. If we really consider what it is that we privilege over the myriad other options, out choices tend to spell something out about our larger values or interests.
These lists are fashion content at its worst: regurgitated “guidance” with roots that should be more at home sometime around 1950.
Am I supposed to believe that the same woman who asks us to “bow down bitches” wants us to nix the supposedly dirty word that is bossy? It just doesn’t add up.
If I’m going to walk around with a vagina, I’m not going to refrain from talking about it, and learning about it! Because learning is fun, guys–and so are weird facts about the human body.
