Got a couple mama followers today … This is my main tumblr, but I’m mostly over on arewedoingthisnow (my “mom blahg”) or laurenmorrill (my author blog … like YA? Follow that one). I only post my feminist rants here every once in a while :)
It would be really nice if Tumblr would let you swap your main account … I’d like to comment on other folks as arewedoingthisnow (for parents stuff) or laurenmorrill for YA stuff!
That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues. The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men. That’s my two cents worth.

I actually googled the definition of “dearth” because I thought surely not, and yet there you go: “the dearth of novels that explore male issues.”
I keep trying to find a way to get my ire up about this but I can’t because of the oxygen deprivation to my brain when my blood curdled upon reading that dumbass sentence.
I keep reading this, hoping I’m missing out on some very subtle form of sarcasm or satire… Because if this concluded with a winky face emoji, I’d be all RIGHT ON.
