    PDF casinotalk.pro ↠ I'm Afraid of Men Kindle ç I'm Afraid PDF/EPUB ² afraid book, I'm Afraid free, I'm Afraid of Men PDFA short yet sobering book written with raw honesty and valuable insights of how we treat women and people within the LGBT community I was surprised to find myself gaining new perspectives based on the uestions that Shraya asks particularly with how we put men on a binary between “good”“bad” and the distinction between identifying as LGBT and being expected to have no boundaries I think if this were a full length memoir I would have easily rated it 5 stars; however this 96 page book could improve with

    PDF casinotalk.pro ↠ I'm Afraid of Men Kindle ç I'm Afraid PDF/EPUB ² afraid book, I'm Afraid free, I'm Afraid of Men PDFSometimes I read 300 or page books and I wonder if I read anything at all Not everything I stumble across has to make me look at the world differently or teach me over and over but I want something memorable because it’s much valuable than a book that provides you with the kind of instant pleasure and happiness that you’ll forget about two days later This very short book not even 100 pages long had my mind pausing on some of the interactions I have had with guys So much of what Vivek Shraya shares in here is a punch in the heart because it’s oh so true She chose carefully which episodes from her life she want

What if you cherished us as archetypes of realized potential? What if you were to surrender to sublime possibility yours and mine? Might you then free me at last of my fear and of your own?

    PDF casinotalk.pro ↠ I'm Afraid of Men Kindle ç I'm Afraid PDF/EPUB ² afraid book, I'm Afraid free, I'm Afraid of Men PDFThis was such a powerful book I must admit I knew very little about transsexuals and I had no idea how many different ways rejection impacted their perception of self and identity To constantly have to 'check' yourself as far as a 'gender meter' am I too feminine for this group too masculine for this group seems to me to be a burden that would be overwhelming Vivek is raw and honest about how life treats this community and how uickly allies can turn away from you if you do not meet their expectations a powerful and important book

    PDF casinotalk.pro ↠ I'm Afraid of Men Kindle ç I'm Afraid PDF/EPUB ² afraid book, I'm Afraid free, I'm Afraid of Men PDFA worthwhile sobering account of Shraya's own experiences with toxic masculinity and societal expectations of gender roles; hardly unfamiliar topics if you read a lot of this kind of nonfiction but Shraya's perspective as a ueer trans woman of color is a valuable addition to the discourse and I'd highly recommend this over a lot of similar books especially if you're looking for something short and punchy My only issue is that at 96 pages or under 2 hours on audio which is how I consumed it this text sort of awkwardly sits in between long form article and book in a way that suffers occasionally for its brevity  Shraya's societal observations are where this book shines consistently; it's in the details of her own life that the reader is left a bit wanting  But as this is essay than memoir it's hard to fault it too much for tha
