Drugs and Sports - What's The Problem: A subject which has been brought to the front for many who enjoy wrestling like me. We support the wrestlers and they, out of their own choosing, take drugs and get suspended. So do we still support them? For me I am choosing to support one particular wrestler still as they, I have to say, are little and cute and make me smile with their in ring abilities. If he gets suspended again he will be thrown out of the company he works for. I do not condone drug taking in the slightest and for me the discussion in this section was a topic that I have been thinking about myself.
Women's Fiction: A very good look at calling Women's Fiction "Women's Fiction". I agree with what was said here. Men enjoy women's fiction too some even write what would be classified as "Woman's Fiction". Maybe the category of "Women's Fiction" needs to be addressed.
Bang Bang: This addressed another subject that I have been following closely. A shop opened in our town centre which was called the "Kids Army Store" selling toy guns and war toys. I have been on the side that doesn't agree with this kind of shop at all! Do you remember years ago when people blamed the Power Rangers for all kinds of trouble that children did; fighting amongst others? Isn't it the exact same thing with selling toy guns?
If I go into too much detail in my review I am at risk of telling you the whole book and the discussions in it. But I would highly encourage all to read the book. It brought to the front some subjects that a lot of people have views on and I have to say that I agreed with a lot of them.
I would give S*** That Pisses Me Off 4/5.
I have to admit I was expecting a series of essays from a liberal feminist perspective addressing serious issues in society. Instead, I found essays about often trivial matters from the perspective of a conservative radical "feminist."
I appreciated that it was grammatically well-written. However, the righteous passion I had hoped to find in the pages of a "feminist" book titled "Shit that Pisses Me Off" was completely absent and only the oblivious ego-driven rantings of a self-righteous woman (from an apparently insular world) tricked in.
The author apparently has no real understanding of the experiences of people of color, those born into poverty or those who identify as LGBTQ. One of her essays unapologetically treads into the same arguments behind eugenics when it comes to women's rights to reproduce. For that matter, she has no conception of how women can actually want and enjoy sex with men and seems to believe that equality can only be reached when men pleasure women without ever getting naked.
(I am rather sorry that her sex life has apparently been so abysmal and she has not successfully had her own needs met within a relationship. If she is as much for responsibility as she says she is, then its high time she takes responsibility for addressing her own needs and desires within a loving relationship. After reading this book, I suspect that open and blameless conversations are not exactly her strong suit.Read more ›
