#fbf To the Time We Were Bad Feminists

Around the World in 80 Books

Surprisingly, our taste in books doesn’t always line up. It’s also rare that either of us will pick up non-fiction. But, every now and then, we’ll read the same book and have similar reactions to it. That was the case with Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist. This book and its author get a lot of flack. You only have to follow Ms. Gay on Twitter to be witness to some of it. Is Roxane Gay absolutely right about every thing she critiques in her essays? No, of course not. That’s why they’re considered opinions. Does her voice matter in regards to modern feminism? You better believe it!  What we took away from this book is that there is no one-size fits all feminism. Her opinion matters. Our opinions matter, even when they don’t match up.
