    This was assigned reading for a class, and I was pleasantly surprised by this book It s refreshingly up to date on its information and feels very much on the pulse of queer identities, feminist politics, and the current climate of these spaces I typically expect print materials on these subjects to lag behind but this one felt both modern and aware It was mindful, intersectional, and even touches on identities that are frequently erased in the queer community, such as asexuality I was pleasa This was assigned reading for a class, and I was pleasantly surprised by this book It s refreshingly up to date on its information and feels very much on the pulse of queer identities, feminist politics, and the current climate of these spaces I typically expect print materials on these subjects to lag behind but this one felt both modern and aware It was mindful, intersectional, and even touches on identities that are frequently erased in the queer community, such as asexuality I was pleasantly surprised to see such topics mentioned and even their erasure in mainstream movements noted when I mostly just expect that same erasure to be perpetuated That said, I don t feel this book told me anything that I didn t already know If you re someone who keeps up with feminism and queer theory, you re not going to get anything new from this There s a good overview of sexuality, gender identity, and a basic discussion of how gender is assigned and performed There s a brief but comprehensive history of the feminist movement and some good discussion But again, the For Beginners in the title should be taken seriously If you feel you know all this already and want to go deeper, then this book will be a little too basic for you If you re truly looking for a good introduction to these topics, however, this is a thoughtful, comprehensive, and easy place to start

    Very good read Tough to follow at times because of very specific biological wording and philosophical thoughts, but if you take the time to stop and think about what you just read, you see the points Well worth a second and third reading I m sure, but I will have to do so after I read a few other books, then come back to it with fresh eyes that maybe have a littleunderstanding behind them I think it s a must read for not only those that are actually interested in learning a littleVery good read Tough to follow at times because of very specific biological wording and philosophical thoughts, but if you take the time to stop and think about what you just read, you see the points Well worth a second and third reading I m sure, but I will have to do so after I read a few other books, then come back to it with fresh eyes that maybe have a littleunderstanding behind them I think it s a must read for not only those that are actually interested in learning a littleabout the LGBTQIA community, but for everyone, just to get a slight understanding of something they may not actually understand It has also started me on my path to findbooks on related topics, and I plan on hitting up my closest library right away

    I was hoping for some big revelations or something, but it was pretty basic And expensive And short I guess it would be okay if you re knowledge of gender went no further than female and male.
