New York Times Bestseller Edited and with an introduction by Roxane Gay, the New York Times bestselling and deeply beloved author of Bad Feminist and Hunger, this anthology of first-person essays tackles rape, assault, and harassment head-on. Vogue, ´´10 of the Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2018´´ Harper´s Bazaar, ´´10 New Books to Add to Your Reading List in 2018´´ Elle, ´´21 Books We´re Most Excited to Read in 2018´´ Boston Globe, ´´25 books we can´t wait to read in 2018´´ Huffington Post, ´´60 Books We Can´t Wait to Read in 2018´´ Hello Giggles, ´´19 Books We Can´t Wait to Read in 2018´´ Buzzfeed, ´´33 Most Exciting New Books of 2018´´ In this valuable and revealing anthology, cultural critic and bestselling author Roxane Gay collects original and previously published pieces that address what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are ´´routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied´´ for speaking out. Contributions include essays from established and up-and-coming writers, performers, and critics, including actors Ally Sheedy and Gabrielle Union and writers Amy Jo Burns, Lyz Lenz, and Claire Schwartz. Covering a wide range of topics and experiences, from an exploration of the rape epidemic embedded in the refugee crisis to first-person accounts of child molestation, this collection is often deeply personal and is always unflinchingly honest. Like Rebecca Solnit´s Men Explain Things to Me, Not That Bad will resonate with every reader, saying ´´something in totality that we cannot say alone.´´ Searing and heartbreakingly candid, this provocative collection both reflects the world we live in and offers a call to arms insisting that ´´not that bad´´ must no longer be good enough.
From the author of Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, the New York Times Bestseller and Best Book of the Year at NPR, the Boston Globe, Newsweek, and many more A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay. ´´Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink-all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I´m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.´´ In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better, coming from one of our most interesting and important cultural critics.
A charming, original, high-concept coming-out and coming-of-age story.Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight.
What does it mean to be male? What does it mean to be female? In contemporary culture, such distinctions have increasingly been regarded as much too narrow to cover the entire spectrum of humanity. Over the past few decades, thousands of individuals have bravely declared their true identities and refused to be boxed into what society has dictated. It has become increasingly important, especially for those coming into adulthood, to go beyond the concepts of gay, lesbian, straight, and bisexual when examining gender. In Gender Identity: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Cynthia L. Winfield encourages readers to reject the notion that male or female designations fit all. The author examines how gender lines have been crossed as a growing number of individuals-including young adults-have found the courage to express and celebrate their authentic selves. In this book, Winfield addresses: Differences between biological sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression Legal protections for those outside the narrowly defined gender norms Public debate and shifting views about gender identity Ways readers can make society more cognizant and inclusive of gender-variant individuals In addition to providing a well-grounded introduction to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual persons and issues, this book allows contemporary teens and young adults to voice their experiences. As more and more public figures-from actress Laverne Cox to Olympic athlete turned reality television star Caitlyn Jenner-have shared their stories, it´s just as important for everyday people to identify who they are. This second edition of Gender Identity: The Ultimate Teen Guide is a much-needed update of an important topic and will be of interest to young adults, their families and friends, and the community at large.
