really liked it

I've read this only once & I intend to go back, but I remember feeling super pumped that someone (at stodgy-ass Stanford, no less!) was researching sexual diversity and publishing their work for a common audience. I was taking a lot of forensic anthropology classes at the time & was reading so much shitty stuff about evolution and sexual selection that seemed biased and wrong, so I ended up doing a short paper on this book in response.

It's been a long time, but I distinctly remember disagreeing with some of her opinions on policy & culture, but nothing to keep me from thoroughly enjoying this book. The science is there & it's very exciting.

Compelling & readable! Git it!
