Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny - Kate Manne

If you are human, you should read this book. Manne's book is academic treatise on Misogyny, and is anything but dry. While I'm not convinced she had to include the look at literature (such as her analysis of Mockingbird), but her look at court cases (her reading of the Brock Turner case is brilliant) and politics is well worth the price. 

Seriously, read this book.

Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights - Ryu Mitsuse,Alexander O. Smith

So all the women we have seen so far are weeping and clingy with zero characterization.

It reads like an 80s anime, was written in the middle 90s and.. really hasn't gotten 'good' yet.

 

Ryu Mitsuse was also responsible for the mess that was Andromeda Stories and you can certainly see the same theme with the whole "seeding the earth" going on. Here it seems to be aliens, in Andromeda Stories it was the Myurat twins.

Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America - Nancy MacLean

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

 

I'm just not finding enough time to read these days, and it's driving me crazy.

Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America - Nancy MacLean

Number of pages changes with font size.  Font size changes with device.  So I just plug in a number.

 

I can't recommend this enough, even on the 12% or so I've read.

 

They really do hate democracy and want it destroyed.  They really do.
