If you've been feeling rant-y, you keep wanting to slam your head into your desk or the nearest wall...you'll probably enjoy this short book, and may spend the entire time nodding your head and exclaiming "That! That exactly." Filled with all the things that make you wonder (not in a good way) about people and the world in general.

I was unsure on taking this book on for the use of language in the title, however I am glad I read it as some very valid points were made. I will tell you a little about my favourite bits of the book.

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.

....but the thing that has really p*ssed me off lately was reading the angry, b *tchy rants about this author's first world problems. This book did not entertain me or make me laugh, but it did make me want to set the author on fire in a WalMart parking lot, or shake her until her eyes bleed. She is not funny. She sounds like kind of a twit and an unpleasant one at that. She's the kind of broad who would bring her to the city park where all the potheads congregate and then get mad when she sees/smells someone smoking pot even though she could have avoided both her angst and the situation by taking her kids to the other park 2 blocks away to which potheads never go because it's always full of parents and their children. The non-pothead park also has more and higher quality swings/slides/park toys, a fenced in play area, more and cleaner water fountains, bathrooms that are clean, well-lit and not scary, and is somewhat removed by distance from the very busy main street both parks are located on. The pothead park has ancient, rusty swings, one heavily dented slide, a merry-go-round capable of taking out teeth and causing fractures with the slightest mishap, one fairly tall water fountain with lots of very questionable black stuff growing all over it, filthy, creepy bathrooms lit only by single windows and hope, and is separated from the busy street by lots of tall, dense hedges perfect for homeless people to sleep under or for wierdos to molest kids under. The pothead park also sports a good sized pond full of stagnant water and diseased-looking brownish-green bubbly stuff and is the perfect place for a kid to drown himself or another kid once Mom gets really into her game of Angry Birds or Words With Friends or whatever. Also, the pothead park is actually a tad farther from home.Read more ›

If you want a book that touches on a lot of the things in life that tick you off, this is it. It's like a good rant with a few points thrown in to really make you think. I really related with the author and actually got her other books in the series.

The title says it all. No real revelations, no real surprises. Imagine that person in the smoke pit bitching about everything. Now put it in written form. There you go. You now know what to expect. I was hoping for a little humor, a little something to make me think. I was wrong. Just a book written by a person pissed off at stuff. The title is exactly accurate.

First, I should probably say that I identify as an equality-minded womanist and sex-positive feminist. Most of my disgust with this collection of short essays comes from that world view and the life experiences which led me there.

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.
