"p. 35 there's use of an idiom that might be triggering if you live in a country where corporal punishment of children is still used and similar sentences are used to mean just what they say. I could add more but I can't hide things under spoiler tags there. I could add it in a TW list in my review when i'm finished, but I intend to read it slowly to make it last so I thought it'd also be useful there." Nov 18, 2016 10:12AM

Ashlaya made a comment on Theresa’s review of Naamah
Naamah by Sarah  Blake
" So you know the *definition* of midrash, but you don't *know midrash*. "
Ashlaya and 4 other people liked Shira Glassman's review of A Boy Called Cin:
A Boy Called Cin by Cecil Wilde
"A Boy Named Cin is a luscious piece of wish-fulfillment in which a character who is basically the amiable, generous, bisexual nerd-programmer-billionaire (that probably has Steve Jobs as his Mirror Universe Evil Twin) falls for a bratty young art stu..." Read more of this review »

None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio

"(Warning that I will discuss suicide, just like the book does)

In my experience, this is THE book on the shelves of American public libraries about intersex variations, so I finally gave in and read it - not because anything in it would..." Read more of this review »

Alice  Miller
“Children who are respected learn respect. Children who are cared for learn to care for those weaker than themselves. Children who are loved for what they are cannot learn intolerance. In an environment such as this, they will develop their own ideals, which can be nothing other than humane, since they grew out of the experience of love.”
Alice Miller

Leslie Feinberg
“I’m sorry it’s had to be this hard. But if I hadn’t walked this path, who would I be? At the moment I felt at the center of my life, the dream still braided like sweetgrass in my memory. I remembered Duffy’s challenge. Imagine a world worth living in, a world worth fighting for. I closed my eyes and allowed my hopes to soar. I heard the beatings of wings nearby. I opened my eyes. A young man on a nearby rooftop released his pigeons, like dreams, into the dawn.”
Leslie Feinberg, Stone Butch Blues

Leslie Feinberg
“I’m not saying we’ll live to see some sort of paradise. But just fighting for change makes you stronger. Not hoping for anything will kill you for sure. Take a chance, Jess. You’re already wondering if the world could change. Try imagining a world worth living in, and then ask yourself if that isn’t worth fighting for. You’ve come too far to give up on hope, Jess.”
Leslie Feinberg, Stone Butch Blues

Stefan Molyneux
“If the sound of happy children is grating on your ears, I don't think it's the children who need to be adjusted.”
