#59 — Bad Feminist: Essays

Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay
  • Rating: 2/5
  • The first half was interesting. The second half less so — by the end, I was a little tired of the whining.  The “Politics, Gender and Race” section was too far removed from her own experience and read like mini undergraduate dissertations. The self-reflecting pieces were far more interesting — it explained who she was and how she came to have the insights she has. It’s impossible to remove yourself from your views; when she didn’t do that, she had the most impact.
