I found this whole section about the history of American capitalism being linked to Protestant reformation fascinating!

“So even though it‘s true that not everyone who joins and stays in abusive religion is troubled or unintelligent, it‘s equally true that finding yourself ears-deep in that kind of cultish quandary couldn‘t happen to “just anyone.” We‘ll learn more about why some people have instincts like Flor‘s, and others don‘t, in part 4.”

Discuss on “brainwashing” is so fascinating. Perfect outdoor reading day

Very excited to finally be starting this! Already I find this writing style engaging 💗

Reading the chapter about intersectional feminism before the term was coined.
“To experience the pain of race hatred or to witness that pain is not to understand it‘s origin, evolution, or impact on world history.”

🚨🚨🚨
“To be an oppressor is dehumanizing and anti-human in nature, as it is to be a victim. [...] it teaches our blood brothers to feel ashamed that they care for us, and denies all men the emotional life that would act as a humanizing, self-affirming force in third lives.”

Best description why patriarchy is bad for EVERYONE I think I‘ve read?!

The Gods of Tango: A novel | Carolina De Robertis
post image
Pickpick

Historical fiction about immigrants to Argentina and the rise of tango from music for the lowest classes to worldwide popularity. Beginning in 1913, it is the story of Leda‘s unexpected widowhood, her talent as a violinist, her living as a man so she can preform onstage, and her romantic relationships with women. 🌈 💗4/5 ⭐️

Throughout American history, the racial imperialism of whites has supported the custom of scholars using the term “women” even if they are referring solely to the experience of white women. Yet such a custom, whether practiced consciously or unconsciously, perpetuates racism in that it denies the existence of non-white women in American.

I forgot how long this was! I first read It over a decade ago and decided on a reread with Chapter 2 coming out soon. Already slipping back into these characters feels so familiar even and I‘m hoping the reread stands up to my memory. Watson will just have to have some extra snuggles! 🤡🔪

Good morning! I started this late last night and really 💗 it so far! I don‘t read a lot of YA but Maureen Johnson might be adding to my TBR 🤷🏻‍♀️

I‘m ~4 hr into this #audiobook and can‘t tell if I should finish. I‘m finding the parts I really enjoy are the quotes and opinions compiled from/about others. But the actual memoir parts, while full of beautiful sentences, feel whiny and self absorbed. Her attempt to discuss the inequality of addiction portrayals so far feels superficial? Am I being too harsh? Should I keep trying this one?

This book continues to make me so sad and so angry at the same time. I just don‘t understand

The author is doing an amazing job with such a difficult subject, I‘m only able to read small bits before needing to read something else.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I just heard the author on a podcast. Despite wanting to read this for a while, I haven‘t prioritized. Since the podcast, it‘s WAY up the list! 4y
prowlix @BarbaraTheBibliophage I had moved it up after hearing it‘s in the works for a movie. The author does a great job giving you a lot of facts while still telling these stories so it doesn‘t feel like academic nonfiction 4y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @prowlix Great to know. I‘m not surprised, based on listening to him being interviewed. 4y

Mehso-so

I struggle with what to think about this book. Sanford Clark never gave interviews, didn‘t write about his experience and only spoke of it once to one of his sons. Yet this is told from his perspective with lots of details. The above is the only reference page. I don‘t doubt that these were horrific crimes but it feels like lots of artistic license. It felt opportunistic to me. This one also has all the TW. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is scary how prophetic this book is and I‘m only a few pages in. A presidential candidate that wants a throw back to “simpler times,” condemns violence he stirs up with mild language open to interpretation, and an actual quote “Help us make America great again”. ⁉️🤯
