Got this as a Klout perk. Kept telling myself it would get better. At the very least Joe would find his way to actually being creepy. He's annoying, an unreliable narrator, and to be honest illogically resilient. He's too stupid to get away with anyt ...more

Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce

I love a lot of Tamora Pierce's books, but not this one. It's not bad, in fact it is perfectly serviceable as a stand alone story. But Evvy is not as endearing as Briar or Daja, and thus she needs a much stronger story than what she got here. We neve ...more

Read Revealing Eden yesterday & it is actually worse than I expected. Aside from everything else Foyt is a terrible writer. Her racism shines through on every page, but that’s about all that’s clear. Otherwise the plot is a mess, she peppers the book ...more

“One of the biggest issues with mainstream feminist writing has been the way the idea of what constitutes a feminist issue is framed. We rarely talk about basic needs as a feminist issue. Food insecurity and access to quality education, safe neighborhoods, a living wage, and medical care are all feminist issues. Instead of a framework that focuses on helping women get basic needs met, all too often the focus is not on survival but on increasing privilege. For a movement that is meant to represent all women, it often centers on those who already have most of their needs met.”
Mikki Kendall, Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot

“No woman has to be respectable to be valuable.”
Mikki Kendall, Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot

“There’s nothing feminist about having so many resources at your fingertips and choosing to be ignorant. Nothing empowering or enlightening in deciding that intent trumps impact. Especially when the consequences aren’t going to be experienced by you, but will instead be experienced by someone from a marginalized community.”
Mikki Kendall, Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot
