“ This radical neglect of biology limits the ability not just of queer Theory but of all scholarship on these topics to rigorously investigate socialized aspects of gender presentation and expectations - while rendering potentially valuable insights from queer Theory nearly completely irrelevant to those serious about such questions. ”
“ women are proto-psychopaths ”

[close] Join us for a year of member-run group reads to make 2015 the year of reading women! Rules Members are free to create author threads by surname if they do not currently exist—but be sure to search the group first to see if a thread is already present before starting a new one! When creating new author threads, please be sure to link author (you'll see this just under the subject field) so that it shows up on the main Goodreads page for that author. This will allow others who are not members to still have access to this group's discussion threads across the entire site. We ask that members do not create other threads at this time; we will create them in the "meta" section as the need for them arises—e.g., there will be a threads for each month, to have a hand place where people can "advertise" their upcoming group reads in case others haven't seen them formed in the specific author threads. Regarding the sharing of books: what members do in private is their own business, but as a group, we cannot condone piracy, so any public posts regarding indiscriminate e-book sharing will be deleted by the moderators. No self-promotion by authors. And, of course: be courteous to everyone, please. Happy reading!
