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.… (mere)

Nesta seleção de ensaios engraçados e perspicazes, Roxane Gay nos leva a uma viagem sobre sua própria evolução como mulher negra, ao mesmo tempo em que nos transporta a um passeio pela cultura nos últimos anos.
O retrato que emerge não é apenas o de uma mulher incrivelmente sagaz em contínuo crescimento para compreender a si mesma e à nossa sociedade, mas também o espelho de nós mesmos. Gay fomenta um debate ácido e cômico sobre o feminismo atual – e suas contradições –, política, racismo, violência, transitando entre a cultura pop e a análise crítica.
Má feminista é um olhar afiado, e nos alerta, acima de tudo, para a maneira pela qual a cultura que nos envolve torna-nos quem somos

Provocative. Sometimes difficult, sometimes upsetting. I'm uncertain how to take some of the anger, some of the hurt and some of the generalisations which, as a non-American white woman, were difficult to relate to my personal experience. That said, the crux of the dilemma Gay describes is in the conflict between acting morally - in the best interest of society in the long run - and acting to belong in the present. This friction is definitely in my life. ( )

Bahni Turpin as the reader for the audio version? SIGN. ME. UP.


*****

Roxane Gay showed up on my radar this past year with her two book publications. I knew I'd get around to reading her at some point, but she really hooked me when I came across her Twitter feed during the Michael Brown murder here in St. Louis and the (mostly) horrific ways we handled the situation. Then I found out that Bahni Turpin is the reader for the audio of Bad Feminist (she's the best I've heard so far), and my winter break finally arrived.

I am so glad I read this sooner than later! I can't wait to encourage more people to read it. Gay goes into excellent detail about the perils of over-defining feminism, her own approach to feminism (so much deeper and more profound than that pull-out quote in the synopsis would lead one to believe), and the greater issues concerning civil rights overall. I was already hooked from the beginning, but once I got through the experience she details in "What We Hunger For," I couldn't put it down (metaphorically). The second half of the book, in particular, seems to take on even more gravitas and urgency.

Though I can't say that I necessarily learned anything new--Gay and I seem to be on the same page ideologically, if not always on all individual tastes--she does contextualize and expand upon many subjects in ways I may never be able to achieve. I especially loved her discussion of the whole concept of trigger warnings, birth control, literature, and movies (thankfully confirming my suspicions--and then some--about The Help), as well as her many insights on race. Throughout so much of the reading I wished it were a SoundCloud file where I could add little shout-outs at various points...listening to audiobooks does present a little more of a hurdle when wanting to make notes in the text. I am in awe of her voracious reading and involvement in social media, her dedication to popular culture and furthering the notion that one can still enjoy a flawed piece of entertainment while still being critical of it, and that she continues to question herself and her beliefs. She is a friend I would want as my bosom-est of buddies, and I am grateful that she is as open and honest as she is to share her experiences and worldview with us. ( )

I regret not having read Bad Feminist when it came out: it’s a great time capsule for US socio-cultural issues in the early 2010s though some of it’s already outdated. Gay offers insightful critiques that have since become common sense.

My main beef is that this book shouldn’t be titled Bad Feminist. It should be called "Essays on Random Topics of Interest to the Author": inter-essay cohesion wasn’t there and I really didn’t care for some of the topics (e.g., Scrabble, Sweet Valley High). The book never arose to a whole greater than the sum of its parts. ( )

This is one of the best books I've read in a while. Relatable and interesting, makes me feel like I'm talking to a cool professor or mentor. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. ( )

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"
