did not like it
bookshelves: nonfiction, pop-culture, feminist
Read in April, 2006

This is so absurd, it must be fiction. I'm all for feminism and protecting women, and opening our eyes to the misogyny/anti-feminism that peppers society - but somehow I seriously doubt that the entire world is simply a tool with which to abuse, rape, and torture women. I think it was Greer's claim that women are literally being forced to have C-sections in order to maintain their figure and take away the birth experience that finally made me go, "Okay, WTF?!"

Christina You didn't catch the recent articles about "I love my C-section" nor the comment section? Mainting your figure was the less objectionable motivation. Keeping your vagina "nice and tight for for my man" seemed the more popular reason.
