A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay. "Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink, all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I'm not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue." In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.… (més)

The whole time I was reading this book of essays, I was thinking about how to review it. I never really came to a decision about that.

I'll start by saying that, overall, I really, really enjoyed this book. There were parts where I laughed out loud, and parts that I read aloud to my poor sister who was stuck on a plane next to me while I was reading. Having worked in higher ed for years, and worked with quite a few faculty, I found this particularly amusing:

There is a plague on grandmothers. The elder relations of my students begin passing away at an alarming rate one week. I want to warn the surviving grandmothers, somehow. I want them to live.

I loved the entirety of the essay "How to be Friends with Another Woman." Yes, yes, yes, to all of it.

There were some parts in the middle that I found kind of boring, but that was on me, my mindset at the time of reading. The writing was overall excellent.

I found some things within themes to be repetitive, likely because many of these essays were published elsewhere prior to the compilation of this book. However, despite the repetition, each essay brought something new to the topic.

After one of my status updates for this book, a friend asked me how I liked it. She was reluctant to read it because she found the title off-putting, as if there's a "right way" to be a feminist. I assured her that the book was worth the read. I think the idea of being a "bad feminist" comes down to the "popular" thought that there's one right way to be a feminist -- hate men, burn bras, eschew family/kids, etc. -- and that doing the opposite of that -- love men, like the color pink, want babies -- is "doing it wrong."

I think that, through this whole book, Gay shows that there's no one right way to do/be anything. And as far as feminism goes, the final paragraph of the book sums up her views -- and my views -- nicely:

I am a bad feminist. I would rather be a bad feminist than no feminist at all. ( )

This book is the author's opinions on lots of things. It covers racism, sexism and much more. She is very opinionated. A lot of the discussion is about books and movies. If some of the ones mentioned are your faves, some parts might be difficult to read. I don't agree with her on everything, but I appreciate her delivery. She explains and gives supporting info for each opinion. Sometimes she even says she still likes whatever it is even though she dislikes it too for such and such reason. She also tells a lot about her personal life and is able to give perspective on things firsthand. She's female, non-white, daughter to immigrants, rape survivor, college professor, writer, plus-sized, scrabble champion, multiple degree having, etc. I think it's worth reading because it makes you think.

This collection of essays is wide-ranging, but united by the themes of feminism, pop culture, and race. Pieces of the essays were highly relatable to me (particularly the tension between being feminine and feminist) and others offered more critical reflections that I will likely ponder for some time to come. In a nutshell, Gay is right that as consumers of culture we often encounter content that is demeaning to women and can choose to enjoy that content while also being critical of it. She includes detailed examples from movies, TV shows, and current events. This book was published several years ago, so at times the references to pop culture feel dated, but the themes remain incredibly relevant. ( )

Hmm, schwere Lektüre. Das Thema der Autorin ist verstärkt Vergewaltigung und Rassismus. Und, gibt es eine richtige Weise "Feminist" zu sein. Die Erzählungen machen traurig und wütend. Ich war froh, als ich das Buch fertig gelesen hatte. ( )

Gay is at her best in this collection when she's at her most long-winded. Many of the shorter pieces felt like pretty insubstantial blog posts, and there's nothing wrong with blog posts (I make my living working on blog software!), but I generally want more heft than that in a collection of essays.

Don't flirt, have sex, or engage in emotional affairs with your friends' significant others. This shouldn't need to be said, but it needs to be said. That significant other is an asshole, and you don't want to be involved with an asshole who's used goods. If you want to be with an asshole, get a fresh asshole of your very own. They are abundant. — From "How to Be Friends With Another Woman"
