About this deal

Yakın zamana kadar kim olduğumuzu ve erkekler kadar iyi olabileceğimizi anlatmaya çalışırken onların bize verdikleri kalıplara uymaya çalıştık.

I would have abandoned Communion at the first chapter if it weren't for a book club I wanted to attend. Antipatriarchal thinking, which assumes that both women and men are equally capable of learning how to love, of giving and receiving love, is the only foundation on which to construct sustained, meaningful, mutual love.

Overall I really like what she has to say and her approach is usually very compassionate, which I appreciate and admire. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It's almost as if she tried to extrapolate her experiences into universal truths about all women, without realizing you need more than just personal feelings to back these claims up.

I really didn't like her ongoing reflections about an event in her life, making her seem like she has changed and learned something valuable, but she never tells us about the event itself, just her current feelings. It is a testament to the learned ignorance of political reality that so many females cannot accept that patriarchy requires of men cruelty to women, that the will to do violence defines heterosexual, patriarchal masculinity. When the world started changing for women because of feminist movement and a lot became more equal than it ever had been, for a time it was only women who had been allowed a taste of power -- class privilege or education or extra-special-hard-to-ignore-gifts-who most "got it" and "got with it. Affirming our natural beauty before we adorn it in other ways keeps us from developing a dependency on artifice" (p. Reading this felt like a conversation with an older sister/ maternal figure about love and life with no barrier and complete vulnerability.

Her guileless defiance in exploring her identity through books; “ I could and would have it all: my ideas, books, writing and love. I had the same critique of Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good, in that I think that book needed a more nuanced discussion of the practice of BDSM.

I’m okay with generalizations—I make a lot of them myself—but I usually take care to either explicitly spell out that I’m generalizing (either ahead of time, like she could have done in a preface, or in the moment by using qualifiers like “some,” “many,” “most,” etc), or to make generalizations amongst people who know that I’m generalizing (like with my boyfriend). Leerlo me dio fuerza para ver y romper cualquier mecanismo de dominación que esté en la base de mis relaciones ya sean familiares, laborales o afectivas. In my conversations and interviews, it was rare for any female to admit that we had found even one or two of these qualities in male romantic partners.Primarily through a postmodern female perspective, she addressed race, class, and gender in education, art, history, sexuality, mass media and feminism. The idea she explores is critical to current debates questioning the place of love in feminism, the bias in feminist ideologies, cultural perception of feminism, and male allyship in feminist movements. Another great wisdom gift that women offer to those who have not yet discovered its pleasures is the wisdom that it is better to know the joy of dancing in a circle of love than to dance alone. Many single successful women in midlife feel there are few places where we can talk openly about our desire to have loving partnerships without being seen as desperate or, worse, as needing pity. bell hooks invita a que las mujeres quebremos y extingamos el patriarcado en nuestras vidas a través de la reconstrucción del amor y el replanteamiento de sus significados dañinos.

Like beautiful snakes, they were going to reach their prime, boldly shed their skin, and acquire another -- this one more powerful and beautiful than all the rest. Her writing has introduced me to the idea of non-sexual romantic relationships and it just all makes sense, like, all of it. Por tanto, aconsejable solamente para mujeres que quieran encontrar razones para odiar a los hombres. Major moments that influenced her thinking/reflections are mentioned really quickly like, "THAT TIME my best friend thought I was seducing her boyfriend" (AND? This book is about transformation, about mutuality, about self love, about commitment, and about being with and alongside men in ways that challenge and end patriarchy, and i finished the book with a lot of notes in the margins and in my notebook.As Andrea Dworkin consistently points out, regarding rape culture and the patriarchy, the message of sexualized violence, no matter what horrifying thing is being done to any individual woman, is always crystal clear: "She wants it.
