This book was only 400 pages long, but it took me something like eight months (or more - I can't remember the exact date I started reading the book) to finish it. But it wasn't because I didn't find the book interesting; instead, there's just a lot of information to ruminate over and digest. Most of these essays are least ten years old - some even older than that - so they can sometimes feel dated, but many are still relevant today, and nearly all of them were pretty darned interesting.

Satiating. Good to read, like bell hooks, just after a class in which a few loud students are insisting that feminists are merely man haters, and racism is a thing of the past.

some of the articles in the magazine itself are pretty out there. like, my little ponies teach little girls how to raise their humps and bat their big, dilated eyes. i'm not saying it's bad to question the toys we hand our kids, but still. the fare in the book is a bit more selective.

these collected articles tackle some pressing issues in just the ways i want them tackeled. for once. ( )

A great collection of essays from Bitch magazine, organized thematically.

Never really read the magazine except for maybe one issue. Gave me a lot to think about that I'm still kicking around. Would like to read more. ( )
