Funny Feminist Textbook 27. Oktober 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As a man who is inexperienced when it comes to feminism, the Guy’s Guide to Feminism was a great read for me. It gave me a great overview of just about every feminism issue that I could imagine thinking about. At the same time it wasn’t too much for me to handle in terms of context and material. The way it was presented, in small 1-2 page mini sections, help me get a base of knowledge and interest in every issue that was talked about. As a text for an uneducated, male member of the feminist community this text is a great intro for me, but anyone who has an average or better knowledge of the topic should look to a more in-depth text.

The book was very engaging and lots of humor including many skits of easily relatable people having conversations or attempting to complete a task. Many times the book makes you think because it won’t tell what a certain section in the book and you yourself have to use context clues to determine the meaning. The book’s style, while coming with it’s own set of negatives, does make it a very easy, quick read for anyone who is looking to get educated on feminism.

While the book’s style accomplishes it’s purpose, it really takes away the overall connection in this book. There was never a ‘WOW’ moment for me where something really connected with me or a point where I thought to myself that I could never put the book down. As with most books written in this style there were a few sections that I really didn’t understand or connect with.

Overall I was very happy with the information, humor, and quality of this book. It gave me a great overview of what to expect from feminism. If I was any more educated than I already am, this book would have been very boring. It doesn’t have much wow factor and in my opinion is similar to an extra funny textbook on feminism. If you are a hardcore feminist look elsewhere, but if you are uneducated and are looking to get your feet wet, this is the book for you.
It is composed like a dictionary presenting issues of feminism from A-Z 27. Oktober 2015

The Guys Guide To Feminism
By: Michael Kaufman & Michael Kimmel

This book is meant to persuade men to support feminism. It is composed like a dictionary presenting issues of feminism from A-Z, including issues such as: sexism, relationships, patriarchy, privilege, marriage, and violence. The intended audience is a male, who is very new to feminism, because it talks very broadly on feminist issues that are very apparent to anyone who has any previous knowledge on feminism.
It addresses a widespread of feminist issues but does it very unsuccessfully. Kimmel and Kaufman use humor, script writing and images to address issues that are not by any means funny. For example, they have a section titled “NO” which is referring to women in society not having the right to say no to sex and no to reproduction; implying that women do not have control over their own bodies. Kimmel and Kaufman present this article by introducing it with a riddle and then continuing on with actual hard facts by saying Boring Lecture Version: Feminist issues including rape, violence, sexism, workplace inequality etc; are not things that should be taken lightly and presenting them with humor and satire is a poor way to persuade someone to be a feminist.
Kimmel and Kaufman do frequently explain the benefits of being a man and being a feminist. For example,They end the book with the last words being “ Zero, the ideal number of men who don’t know that women's equality points the way to better relationships, better sex, stronger families, peaceful communities, a more just society, and simply a damn better world.” Though, I think it was beneficial that they would directly point out the benefits of feminism to men, I don't believe it was enough. I can say right now, If I was a male new to feminism, reading this book would not persuade me to support the feminist movement; It would leave me bored and feeling as though I wasted my time.

Worth Reading and Mostly Correct 6. Mai 2014
Von Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read (I finished it in a little more than 24 hours) and makes a lot of good points. As a feminist man, I agree with 95% of what the authors have to say. I fully concur with their basic thesis that feminism is a force for positive change and the patriarchy which rules our society hurts both men and women and has to go.

Positives: The book is often funny and clever and makes some points which need to be made. It also does the valuable service of being a book about feminism aimed at men. Regrettably, the men who need this book the most won't read it. The most sexist men I know aren't exactly the book-reading type.

Negatives: The authors sometimes cast too-wide a net. The discussion of unions was a little out of place, for example. Also, they address the subject of human trafficking but don't consider the argument that legalizing prostitution is the best way to combat trafficking. They do address the issue of prostitution, but give sparse analysis to how much damage to women (including trafficking in the sex trade) could be greatly reduced by legalization. It is as if they learned nothing from the lessons of Prohibition.

The authors also address the issue of pornography, but the entry is so vague I'm not sure what they're trying to say.

The key failing of the authors, however, is that they let religion largely off the hook. Sure, they bring up the misogyny of the major religions. They completely fail to hold religion responsible, however, as the primary source of misogyny in modern society. Here you have the fountainhead of misogyny, and the authors wimp-out and don't confront it as such. In this book about feminism, they neglect to confront the single biggest anti-feminist force out there. An entry on the Bible, for example, would have been entirely appropriate. They could've simply listed many anti-woman verses contained within with some short analysis and it would've been a powerful component. This failure diminishes the power of their case, and that's too bad.

I'd still recommend this book, even if it falls short in the areas above. It is fun and informative.

More of a dictionary than a book 21. Februar 2014
Von Claymon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book, organized like a dictionary, exposes a lot of the things that are good and bad about feminism; especially for a male that is capable of thinking for himself. I give the book three stars because it was a good read, even though about three fifths of the book is garbage. A lot of the sections were cleverly disguised rants. Seriously, those three fifths of garbage are supposed to be funny but often assume that males are ignorant, sexist, and unaware of any inequalities that exist in this world. A sports theme in a book about equality and gender roles that is targeting males is silly. It makes me wonder if the authors were just trying to sell more books by buying into the stereotyping that is discouraged within its pages. Hmmmmm.....The book is also written from a perspective that sees women as the victim on every single topic. A little more effort and discussion into the issues would have been appreciated. The other two fifths of the book actually provide valuable insights into the history of the treatment of women in society. Unfortunately problems of the past are used to fight a modern battle here. The authors don't cite any of their informational sources (pretty much only credit photos used) so guys, you're expected to blindly trust their PHDs and resumes. (You trust everything your professors have ever told you about social issues right?). I'm giving the book three stars because it was so full of garbage that it inspired me to further educate myself about social issues.

Bottom Line: The book contains a ton of silly garbage, however if you can look past the piles of trash located in its pages, it is a great book for somebody who wants to get a better understanding of what feminism is, where it came from, and other social issues related to sex, gender, and skin color.
A helpful tool for men 27. Oktober 2015

The Guys Guide to Feminism by Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel discusses a numerous amount of varied topics regarding feminist issues. These topics range from violence against women, privilege and relationships. Because of the large amount of information covered, each topic is very brief and serves to only inform with little elaboration. If you want a better understanding or more detailed explanation of the issues discussed in these short texts, you will have to do some of your own research after reading this book. It is written like a dictionary and in alphabetical order of the topics being discussed. This makes it easy to read out of sequence or skip topics that may be uninteresting to you. This book is aimed to educate men and I think it is effective if the reader wants to gain some overall knowledge about feminism and the many aspects of it.
Some topics are discussed in humorous ways; the authors use jokes and different tactics or gimmicks to get their message across. I found these sections to be less informative and helpful because they lacked substance. Most of the sections that were addressed in a more academic way were easy to understand and helpful at describing the important factors that play a part in feminism. The goal of this text is to show the importance of males helping feminists and how crucial their role is. I would recommend this book for someone who hasn’t had any pervious education about feminism because it is informative about a large range of topics.
