It made for an interesting read! I was nervous that it might be too technical (read:boring) but it wasn‘t at all- still easy to follow. Some parts felt a little reductive “men do this, women do this.” I would love to see this research applied beyond hetero folks. I like to think we would all have more commonalities than differences but- show me the research #preweddingreads #memorialbookchallenge #75bookchallenge #book24of2021

Alok's writing is powerful, beautiful, and full of feeling and compassion. I already have the tagged book and highly recommend it. Planning to get his other 2, which are poetry volumes. There's also a 15% sale today for any interested:

☹️😢 My reading life for the next eight weeks. I hope it‘s better than I am anticipating. 🤞🏾🤞🏾

My recreational reading will dwindle to dribs and drabs until right after Xmas.

I‘m finding the “how to parent without exacerbating gender stereotypes” parts of this book good, but lots of the rest of it is crap. And it‘s not at all trans-inclusive.
I am very good at math! I love math. And spreadsheets. And engineering.
Let‘s bet Dr Spears Brown. I‘ll take all your money!

Oryx I loved maths in school - the satisfaction of solving a problem and knowing it was right - lovely! Although I've forgotten everything I ever knew about differentiating and cos and sins and tans... 2mo
eraderneely @Oryx yes! The knowing that it was right, the lack of ambiguity, is what I love. 2mo

BookNAround Huh. I don‘t like math but entirely chalking it up to nurture rather than nature is pretty reductive and false, IMO. Also, my daughter (getting a Masters in Architecture) called the other day to tell me she got a 95 on her engineering midterm. So she not only likes math, she‘s damn good at it too. 2mo
Caroline2 @TrishB a steminist!!! I love that! 😀 4w
TrishB @Caroline2 she has a badge with it on 😁 4w
rockpools It‘s a good job she doesn‘t know us. Might lose a fair bit of money there! Hello Emily 😊 2w

This is the heart of what people often mean, in my experience, when they talk about racism, sexism, and any other “ism.” Difference in outcome must mean there are systems keeping that person back. Murray wrote this book to review what science says about this premise.

I also appreciate how he separates this idea from equality in each person‘s inherent dignity and treatment under the law.

My #bookspin selection for October is a little bit of controversial pick, but I believe it‘s important to engage in different ideas.

Thanks again to @TheAromaofBooks for organizing!

TheAromaofBooks Good luck!! 2mo

Ho'onani: Hula Warrior | Heather Gale

Pickpick

Ho'onani Kamai wants to not only be in but lead her school's performance of the traditional kāne hula chant. Although she sees herself as neither kāne or wahine, some folks have trouble accepting her māhū nature. This tale of self-confidence and gender fluidity is based on the true story of Ho'onani Kamai. Intended for ages 4 to 8.
