I love reading old essays from dead scientists/engineers (but then I get attached and I wish they were not dead).

In recent years, the term “feminism” has fallen further and further out of favor. According to a 2001 Gallup poll, only 25 percent of women considered themselves feminists, down a percentage point from the 1999 survey. Some of the concepts and the lexicon introduced by the women’s movement remain modish, however: We are still encouraged by fashion and media and Hollywood and each other to be “strong women.”

“Liberation” and “empowerment” are still buzzwords, but they once referred to bucking the system, going on strike against submission, adopting a brazen, braless, unshaven, untrammeled approach to life. These terms have since been drained of meaning. Instead of hairy legs, we have waxed vaginas; the free-flying natural woman boobs of yore have been hoisted with push-up bras or “enhanced” into taut plastic orbs that stand perpetually at attention. What has moved into feminism’s place as the most pervasive phenomenon in American womanhood is an almost opposite style, attitude, and set of principles.

Female Chauvinist Pigs


A really interesting, if touchy book on feminism and its contorted meaning in today’s society.

Check out the cover that Penguin ultimately went with - definitely racier. Love that too!

This cover was rejected by Penguin for being too tame and not sexy enough.

A half-read book is a half-finished love affair.

That moment when you’re reading a book and you read a sentence that contains the title of the book.

I also time how quickly movies say their own titles — so far, The Fifth Element wins.
