    As I read my way through the first chapter, I felt like I was reading a Cosmo or Glamour for feminists, a little trashy and a lot of fluff, but just enough to have some bite Several times I almost put it down, but I m glad I kept reading due to taking some perverse pleasure in it.To some extent, it s a frustrating read It is just as dichotomous and contradictory as the subject Kipnis seeks to explain Her sweeping statements about how great wo...

    Kipnis examines women and modern American society s relationships with dirt, sex, envy and vulnerability It s a huge subject, and she does not do it justice Kipnis focuses all too often on pithy cheap shots and sarcastic responses to other feminist thinkers I liked some of her analysis, but she overstated her case and made terrible comparisons women shouldn t worry so much about rape because violent things hap...

    Kipnis covers 4 basic factors relating to feminism envy, sex, dirt, and vulnerability She discusses how there is a new femininity namely, women are voluntarily participating in hook up culture, willingly submitting themselves as sex objects and rejecting ideas of the old femininity , namely when women would be taken out to dinner and courted in an old fashioned way Basically, women are at odds between being assertive, independent, sexual beings yet the irony is that many of these women Kipnis covers 4 basic factors relating to feminism envy, sex, dirt, and vulnerability She discusses how there is a new femininity namely, women are voluntarily participating in hook up culture, willingly submitting themselves as sex objects and rejecting ideas of the old femininity , namely when women would be taken out to dinner and courted in an old...

    So I pulled this rather randomly and haphazardly off the library bookshelf, based on a random and haphazard online review from a cartoonist I sometimes admire While I appreciate Kipnis s layman s speak, I am having trouble seeing her as the representative...

    Kipnis is the wry, well informed, playfully ranting feminist friend that we should all be so lucky to have Simultaneous paying respect to the multi faceted, many phased women s movement, while still being able to approach it objectively, Kipnis is able to suggest that feminism came up against an unanticipated opponent the inner woman, without self righteous finger pointing or woman aggrandizing propaganda she s actually remarkably empathetic with feminist backlash against undeserving male Kipnis is the wry, well informed, playfully ranting feminist friend that we should all be so lucky to have Simultaneous paying respect...

    when it come to the female situation, contradictions speckle the landscape, like ingrown hairs after a bad bikini wax So writes Kipnis in the preface of the book, which is about the contradictions of being a modern woman This is the third book that I read by her, and I picked it up mainly because she is so incredibly witty, insightful, and hilarious Her Against Love A Polem...

    Well researched, wonderfully poetic, and at times the essays on Sex and Dirt quite fierce and funny all at the same time Even if you don t agree with everything Laura Kipnis has to say in this short, but gripping tome, I think it s an interesting social commentary that everyone in our post modern world should read We ve definitely made progress, but there s still a lotprogress that needs to be made, and maybe a good place to start is looking within ourselves.I am intrigued to hear her Well researched, wonderfully poetic, and at times the essays on Sex and Dirt quite fierce and funny all at the same time Even if you don t agree with everyt...

    This book was frustrating because I could not for the life of me tell when Kipnis was being sarcastic, funny, serious, or just what her position was on anything In a way, that made it interesting, because it...

    Kipnis is the sort of woman I d enjoy watching dissect a crowd of intellectuals, then sitting back and discussing it with her Her mind, and tongue are razor sharp and she has that mystical ability to see what s plain behind the show and pomp of a lot of modern thought No small feat Against Love, her poorly named polemic against relationships, orspecifically against marriage though titled so was a rip roaring ride of research, biting wit, cleverness and general disregard for the common Kipnis is the sort of woman I d enjoy watching dissect a crowd of intellectuals, then sitting back and discussing it with her Her mind, and tongue are razor sharp and she has that mystical ability to see what s plain behind the show and pom...
