This title says it all. It's true.

Why is it pink for girls and blue for boys - when pink, a shade of red, used to be for men, but since breast cancer awareness uses it it's "girly" now? As if being female is 2nd class? Fuck that.

Why do women have to cover up but men get to be shirtless?

Why are women expected to take their husbands' names when they marry?

Why are working women and stay at home dads a problem but the other way around is "normal"?

Why aren't women taken seriously when th

Well this book is exactly what the title says it is, it is 110 examples of sexism that are still widespread that pisses off the author, Peg Tittle. Each item is joined by an explanation as to why it is sexist and why it is so irksome, which on one hand does make you think but on the other does come across a little bit ranty for the sake of being ranty. Tittle does raise plenty of very valid points like the genre dubbed 'Women's Fiction', online games catergorised as 'girls' (when there is none a ...more

Sexist Shit that Pisses Me Off!

I received this ebook free through LibraryThing member giveaway in return for my honest review.

When I began reading this book I got into it but as it went on I started to think about what kind of life is this person living, does she pick apart every aspect of everything to see if she can find a reason the females are treated differently then males. Some parts I found quite interesting and gave me a chuckle about the truth in "the pill for men". I just thought it wa

Peg Tittle writes an interesting opinion book about sexism and feminism. The book is broken down into 1-3 page topics about issues regarding society's views of boys and girls roles. It also addresses the cultural norms of modern day behavior. Half of the book was amusing and funny. It made me chuckle and agree on several points. The other half was philosophical and became emotional in several places. I learned way more about the author's personal life than I really needed to know. This book is g ...more

There were a few gems of wisdom in this book. For example, I never really thought about sexism in women's practicing of religion vs. men's and never thought about the symbolism behind a man's tendency to spit.

Unfortunately, there was transphobia in one bit and a lot of moment's that seemed bordering on internalized sexism of the author's own.

I also couldn't get past how disjointed this book was. Categorizing or something could have helped a lot.

Still a worthwhile read.
