Especially considering some of Valenti's points were insistant on the new age of feminism; open to men and women of all colour and creeds.
Other than that, this was an interesting book from a British point of view. Who knew Mississippi banned vibrators but allowed people to buy guns with a background check? Not me! Or that abstinance only education is incrediably wide spread?Married Women Sex Thessaloniki
Or that pharmacists a I'm still baffled as to why there is a flat stomached, white female body on the front cover. It made me quite grateful to looklng living in Britain. I found Valenti's style of writing distracting. It felt like she ended every sentance valeni, 'I know, right? This book is probably best for high school and young college students. I found her voice quite patronising and off putting, there wasn't anything particularly new from a ideological view point, but it would still be an informative book for sre who are total new comers to the movement known as feminism.

I had read Valenti's The Purity Myth: You know, I haven't been a feminist long, but this book is extremely Feminism Pretty much everything I read I had heard many times before and in more depth els Reading more feminist blogs and meeting and talking to feminists has made me more and more interested in learning about feminism. Pretty much everything I read I had heard many times before Women looking for casual sex valenti where are you in more depth elsewhere. This feels more like a "Flyby Feminism" book, suited more towards very young women who are vaguely familiar with all these tropes, but maybe looking for more depth.
But I can't say I'd recommend this to any young women.
Firstly, I felt the book was very divisive; Valenti was obviously writing to women just like her liberal Democrats who think anyone that is different are prudey Republican anti-sexers and not trying to be a bit more embracing to ALL women. Honestly, unless we can find some common ground and work together, I don't see great change happening. Very much tied in with the divisive, condescending, arrogant tone is the writing style itself.Beautiful Woman At Red Horny Mature Dating Alamance North Carolina
Valenti completely eschews any sort of formal, academic writing for a "hey girl" conversational style filled with assumptions, insults to Republicans and "prudey" "anti-sexers" and foul language. I can understand wanting Womej talk to your audience, but young teenaged girls aren't stupid; they can see through sh!
I know I would not have appreciated reading this fake teenspeak when I was between the ages of 14 - What is probably worse is lokoing hypocrisy.Married Women Want Nsa Saint Paul Minnesota
Valenti is very much against a woman changing her last name when she marries - but makeup, purses, and heels are A-OK. Essentially because Valenti likes these things and approves of them.

The ridiculous thing is that a name doesn't determine whether you are a feminist. Liking makeup and shoes and wanting to get breast implants and wanting to wait until you are married to have sex aren't bad things or unfeminist things. A woman is a PERSON first and foremost, and we need to Married ladies seeking date services making assumptions about a woman based on what she wheee and doesn't like this includes myself, society, and feminists who assume that any liking of beauty or "traditional valeenti roles" is bad.
So women: If you love "27 Dresses" and Womenn and romance stories and adopted your man's last name, you can be a feminist! Towards the end, I valeni a really hard time appreciating even the good aspects, because of the tone, the writing, the attitude. Which is a shame, because, even if this is very basic, there are important messages that I think many young women should hear. Unfortunately, I Women looking for casual sex valenti where are you afraid that a portion of these women who need this the most including my younger self will be turned off because Valenti shoots off at the mouth.

Furthermore, it valwnti written in when I was 9 years old--so although some problems described are still relevant and ongoing, the discussion of the Clintons and Bushes felt antiquated. But more than anything I found two things problematic in this book: Valenti's use of sarcasm to an audience that she's trying to convince to convert to feminism, and mentioning intersectionality only as an afterthought.

First, Valenti would commonly use sarcasm to punctuate really sad or unfortunate facts about sexism, and it read as very unbecoming.

Jessica Valenti is a part of the feminist blogger elite, and for good reason. Women looking for casual sex valenti where are you blog she helped to establish, Feministing. Full disclosure: I read Feministing every now and then.
