It’s just space opera, but I love that the girls kick ass and the prettyboy hunk is pretty much useless.
John Varley’s Dark Lightning
Women’s Work, Kari Aguila
An interesting novel, worth the read! “Think about how different our world is going to be when this generation of boys grows up, having been allowed to grow into whole, good, decent men. Nobody is going to tell them that they have to go through life being some stupid caricature of masculinity anymore. They can …
What harm does it do?
So I’ve received a 1/5 review of Gender Fraud: a fiction at Goodreads by someone claiming, basically, TERF!!! Expected. Sigh.

The Assistants by Camille Perri – highly recommended!
Just finished reading Camille Perri’s The Assistants — highly recommended! It’s Nine to Five updated and with a great moral element; better than any nonfiction book about the income inequity between the top 1% and the rest of us … With attitude, to boot! “Robert had tie-clips that cost as much as those [student loan] …
The Privilege of Men, Judith Mazzucco
The Privilege of Men by Judith Mazzucco starts as an unremarkable novel about the meat industry, but then WHAM! the metaphor in chapter 16— At least I think, I hope, it’s a metaphor and not something that’s actually happening somewhere right now.

“Girls shouldn’t read any books written by men” – check it out
Just out! A radfem novel!
JUST OUT from Lacuna! A philosopher, a psychologist, and an extraterrestrial walk into a chocolate bar… a novel by Jass Richards It’s kinda an extended argument for radical feminism. And very funny. Here’s the blurb: When a self-appointed independent activist and her office-temp-with-a-doctorate buddy embark on a quest for a chocolate bar (a bar that serves …
