About this deal
Por tanto, aconsejable solamente para mujeres que quieran encontrar razones para odiar a los hombres. It didn't give me the same feeling of power/energy to love like All About Love did—what were my illusions? I found pages and pages to be saying things that I (and I think most eager feminists in their 20s) would have thought about already, but then again, this book has a very broad target audience! A woman cannot truly love a man and expect such affection from him unless she first appreciates herself. Aber genau diesen Aussagen konnte ich nicht zustimmen, sie nicht teilen, mich nicht mit ihnen identifizieren.
While I didn’t mind that rhetorical technique when she used it either more accurately or more sparingly in her other books, in Communion it stood out to me more in a negative way, perhaps because I also found that her points blurred together and were a little discursive within chapters at times. There really is so much power and satisfaction in self love and it bleeds into every aspect of your life. I had the same critique of Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good, in that I think that book needed a more nuanced discussion of the practice of BDSM. He (her father ) believed that in a proper family, the man would always be the undisputed head of the household. Recently, the angst instigated by feminist movements have pushed for attrition to patriarchal norms in Nigeria.
Are they really on the road to total wellness, or are we all just living in the delusion of gender equality being on the horizon?
I think this book was supposed to inspire me, but it just made me sort of sad/convinced if I ever do experience Hook's definition of love, I'll have to at least be 40. Like hooks, I've learned to find all the love I need in spiritual practice and community, and while I long for an intimate romantic partnership, I know I will be OK without it. The voice of bell hooks rings with moral rectitude, but it is also a voice that is full of kindness, openness, and wholehearted forgiveness.I don't know a whole lot about feminist theory, but what I learned about it here I found fascinating. The rise in sexual sadomasochism both in everyday life and in our intimate lives seems to be a direct response to the unresolved changes in the nature of gender roles, the fact that so much gender equality exists in the context of the same old oppressive patriarchy. Had they taken to heart medical ways of defining shifts in midlife, they might have been forced to take on board the negative implications this word would bring -- the heavy weight of loss it evokes. But I would not recommend it to someone who isn't already familiar with/educated about the feminist movement. Amor que la mayoría de veces se confunde con sexo y más exactamente con una lucha por el poder en el terreno sexual.
While feminism helped these women soar, it often failed to change in any way the lives of masses of ordinary women. Anti-patriarchal thinking, which assumes that both women and men are equally capable of learning how to love, is the only foundation on which to construct sustained, meaningful, mutual love. A whole woman that can exist outside of the confines of the bullshit heaped on women and our relationships with friends, lovers, partners and most importantly ourselves.Romantic friendships are a threat to patriarchy and heterosexism because they fundamentally challenge the assumption that being sexual with someone is essential to all meaningful, lasting, intimate bonds. No wonder that heterosexual women who do possess these traits, who are ready to be in mature, healthy love relationships, usually feel they cannot find loving male partners. Unable to see the way these two passions enhance and reinforce each other, they wanted to negate my right to love. But it's about "romantic friendships" with other women, but it'd be really interesting to read about having this with men.

By that I mean that an individual woman may not like her looks, her weight, but ceases trying to change herself so that she no longer confroms to conventional sexist aesthetic standards, because to do so lessens her anxiety and stress.
