Hilarious for all the reasons that everybody has already said. Only drawback for me is her self deprecating humor and view of fat people. She also went on a few racial tangents and it felt like this white lady is crossing the line a bit. She also doe...more

Aunt Loretta has something that maybe you could call class. It's not the made-up kind that Grandma has, fake pearls and Sunday hats, but something that comes to you as if you were born to the king and queen. Aunt Loretta understands better than Grandma that reading a big book is more classy than wearing fake pearls watching TV.Heidi W. Durrow

“We have a racially based justice system that overpunishes, fails to rehabilitate, and doesn't make us safer.”
Piper Kerman, Orange Is the New Black

“Girls “going wild” aren’t damaging a generation of women, the myth of sexual purity is. The lie of virginity—the idea that such a thing even exists—is ensuring that young women’s perception of themselves is inextricable from their bodies, and that their ability to be moral actors is absolutely dependent on their sexuality. It’s time to teach our daughters that their ability to be good people depends on their being good people , not on whether or not they’re sexually active…so while young women are subject to overt sexual messages everyday, they’re simultaneously being taught—by the people who are supposed to care for their personal and moral development, no less—that their only real worth is their virginity and ability to remain “pure”.”

“...idea at play here is that of “morality.” When young women are taught about morality, there’s not often talk of compassion, kindness, courage, or integrity. There is, however, a lot of talk about hymens”
Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women

Jessica Valenti
“What’s the difference between venerating women for being fuckable and putting them on a purity pedestal? In both cases, women’s worth is contingent upon their ability to please men and to shape their sexual identities around what men want.”
Jessica Valenti, The Purity Myth: How America's Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women

Not your grandma's book club! Well, maybe yes. If Grandma has ten cats, fights the patriarchy and can knit all at the same time.
