After reading Gay’s riveting memoir, I was hunger for more. I admire her articulate, effortless prose. I picked up Bad Feminist to learn her writing style, but her critical thinking opens my mind on America’s race, gender, violence, entertainment, and politics. Her perspective and observation are honest and thoughtful. From novels to films, women rights to gay rights, and humors to exploitations, Gay offers a powerful, provocative voice of a bad feminist who gives us something to think about.
