    Recently my rad friend B and I got into it about Roxanne Gay's Bad Feminist, which I loudly do not like.

    I feel awful terrible giving such a low review because i was so so so excited for this to the point where I refused to read any press so I could have a pure unmediated experience... but only like 3 of the essays in here were good: the ones where she reflects on her own life. Which is funny because I...
