However, the book is not without fault. I found the the chapters on feminism to be rather lacking -- men advocating for how the feminist movement should move forward or be conducted isn't revolutionary, radical, or in any way, in my opinion, going to help a movement that is for women. I also could have done without the chapter on the author experiencing how many times he's been called a misogynist. If you're going to write about privilege, then detailing about the times that people have called you out on it, is not helpful. He goes on to suggest tone policing. While I agree somewhat, I don't think he's best suited to discuss it, and it detracts from the book's message as a whole.Read more ›
The drawings are not interesting to look at and I can imagine are only included because they are by the author. They do not add anything to the educational value of the book.
I teach my students that your reference list shows how educated you are about your topic and gives you credibility. Killerman's shows that he hasn't really educated himself about these topics. I was astounded that even in the Recommended Readings, he doesn't include Feinberg, Bornstein, or Wilchins, all of whom were groundbreaking in writing about trans issues. I guess Killerman doesn't want his readers to find out that he has not an original idea in the book and that all his "explanations" are taken from other people's work.
I was looking for a fun book to add to my Sociology of Gender class and this was not it. Back to Bornstein it is...
It's an interesting and fun approach, the cartoons and conversational text really help make this a great read. Some may feel uncomfortable with a few (or more) of the ideas presented, but I see this book creating conversations and debates about a subject that may not be getting the attention it needs in Social Justice Advocacy.
Keep up the god work!
Why is this man making money on something he stole?
