    MOBI garden home.co ↠ I'm Afraid of Men MOBI Ô I'm Afraid Kindle - afraid free, I'm Afraid epub, 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 being cohesive and organized Dividing the writing into sections like “Me” and “You” feels arbitrary especially when she jumps between different timelines as she recalls experiences I think the book would have been better if she had organized them either chronologically or by subject matter; instead it feels like a random series of thoughts even though they are important

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ I'm Afraid of Men MOBI Ô I'm Afraid Kindle - afraid free, I'm Afraid epub, I'm Afraid of Men PDFA vulnerable powerful examination of gender and masculinity from trans artist Vivek Shraya I’m Afraid of Men reminded me of We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as Shraya uses her personal experiences of sexism and harassment to build a case for why we need to redefine and rebuild masculinity as well as gender overall She shares her lived experience as a trans person of color with courage and incision

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ I'm Afraid of Men MOBI Ô I'm Afraid Kindle - afraid free, I'm Afraid epub, 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

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ I'm Afraid of Men MOBI Ô I'm Afraid Kindle - afraid free, I'm Afraid epub, I'm Afraid of Men PDFTbh Vivek just isn’t in command of her material here The way Vivek continually conflates femininity and women is extremely irritating and I’m fed up of trans writers doing this I’m tried of people substituting the word feminine for female which Vivek does repeatedly They’re not interchangeable If you can discuss male privilege and behaviours you can acknowledge that female people exist We are not just non males Really the book’s biggest problem is that it claims to be about misogyny but really it’s on toxic masculinity I don’t believe that toxic masculinity is a useful concept but that is what this book is about For example calling gay men groping gay men in a gay bar misogyny it’s not Also the whole homophobia is just misogyny point is one I find irritating Maybe homophobia is based in misogyny but how is saying that helpful how is it clarifying How is calling men shaming other men for not b

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ I'm Afraid of Men MOBI Ô I'm Afraid Kindle - afraid free, I'm Afraid epub, I'm Afraid of Men PDFI would be lying if I said that the title didn’t have a huge influence on my intrigue in this initially however this book ended up giving me way insight than I could have ever guessed Exploring masculinity from the perspective of a trans woman through her experiences both pre and post transition Vivek Shraya delivers a very raw take on how misogyny homophobia and transphobia has impacted her life A particularly insightful part in this for me was Shraya’s take on the ‘good man’ In spite of my negative experiences I’ve maintained a robust attachment to the idea of the “good man” A common theme in my encounters and relationships is my certainty that the men I have admired were “good” a synonym for “different from the rest” The attachment to the promise of goodness is what left me bereft when in various ways I discovered that each of these men wasn’t “one of the good guys” She goes on to talk about how instead of categorizing men or anyone really
