I like reading books about war dogs, shipwrecks, and lady aviators.

Currently reading

The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son On Life, Love, and Loss
Gloria Vanderbilt, Anderson Cooper
How to Be a Woman - Caitlin Moran

I've written before about how much I despised Lena Dunham's "feminist" memoir, and all I could think while reading this was that it's the middle-aged British equivalent. It's hypocritical with an understanding of history so narrow it's painfully trite.

 

Moran argues that women haven't been present in the world's successes because women are the physically weaker sex and therefore couldn't participate in the creation of the world. She praises pornography while wholeheartedly denigrating women who participate in its creation. 

 

I am so tired of boring women with no empathy or ability to critically examine their own arguments telling me how to be a good woman and good feminist. I swear to god I'm going to write my own book just so we can all stop reading this insulting nonsense.
