Googling the first sentence points to a dozen of tumblr blogs and otherwise completely insane shit that makes no sense. It's basically their #1 source yet they never tell where it's from.
The only website that actually wrote the title of the book was some MRA website.
It's apparently called Is Everyone Really Equal? and it's a typical social studies bachelor program text book for American bachelor programs.

The reviews are actually pretty funny. The top 3 quotes on amazon are:

  • "I feel the main goal of this book is to get everyone 'in line' with what the author's thinking is. "

  • "They do site certain so-called "facts" but many times they make a bold claim and provide no supporting evidence at all."

  • "It's an easy read." (guess because it's so shit)

    But the funniest review (5 stars) is from an "white, able-bodied, raised Christian, American man" who finds it "enlightening". Guess what he wrote...

    The best review (because most likely correct) is "[...] [that] the book is a radical feminist rant against men, to the point in which it says that men can't be discriminated, and that we contribute for all the bad in the world"

    The authors are Ozlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo.

    Robin DiAngelo thinks: "I am a white woman whose academic, professional, and personal commitment is to anti-racist practice, however, I don’t call myself an “anti-racist white” because I believe that it is for people of color to decide if, in any given moment, I am behaving in anti-racist ways. These are the issues and perspectives that guide my work."

    Sensoy's twitter:

    Also: I'm not entirely sure if I'm allowed to post the authors' names. On the one hand I think it might be against the rules but on the other hand it's literally something that can be looked up on the internet. However if it's against the rules I can edit it.

Just looked up this misogynistic piece of shit book on Amazon to see what it was all about. Words cannot express how offensive this is, here's the description:

> Chad Eastham will encourage girls to be confident in who they are and Whose they are(J2383 note: it's a christian book, the 'whose' is in reference to God, hence the uppercase W, it's not saying that women are owned by men). Girls need to know that they are treasures to be adored and that how she feels about herself is how guys will treat her.

> Chapter titles add fun and interest to this life-altering message. Guys Like Girls Who . . .

> Wear Jeans (comfortable with who they are and Whose they are)

> Know the Future (understand there is a 96% chance this is not the boy they will marry so don't act like they are)

> Leave Us Alone (have their own hobbies)

> Can Spell (can say "no")

> Eat Tofu (live a healthy lifestyle)

This mirrors the argument of "if you eat meat, you believe in oppressing women." I had a friend who had a book about feminism and vegetarianism, called The Sexual Politics of Meat. I actually did think the book was interesting, and it made some interesting points about the weirdly sexual ways in which meat products could be advertised, as well as certain cultural practices surrounding the consumption of meat (the book was chocked full of drawings of "sexy" cuts of pork, etc, and brought up how men and women in certain scoieties were proscribed from consuming certain parts of animals).

But, like a lot of academic work, the author veered off into completely beyond reasonable territory, conflating meat eating in and of itself with the oppression of women.

I actually do think that there are arguments against our food system and it's heavy reliance on meat (and dairy, and eggs). The amount of water and grain that has to go into feeding these billions of animals is putting a great deal of strain on our resources. Seven billion people cannot consume lots of steak and ham and chicken.

u/EggheadDash · 10 pointsr/TumblrInAction

The last one is actually a female-positive book, and the thesis is something along the lines of "guys like girls who like themselves." Most of the book isn't even about what guys like, that's just on the cover to grab the attention of boy-obsessed tweens. The OP obviously didn't even skim the book.

EDIT: Here's an amazon link. If you don't want to click through, here's some of the chapter titles, followed by what the chapter is actually about:

  • Wear Jeans (comfortable with who they are and Whose they are)
  • Know the Future (understand there is a 96% chance this is not the boy they will marry so don't act like they are)
  • Leave Us Alone (have their own hobbies)
  • Can Spell (can say "no")
  • Eat Tofu (live a healthy lifestyle)
u/Ich171 · 2 pointsr/TumblrInAction

I googled that for you!

And there seems to exist such a Book.

Doesn't make the story automatically true though. Might still even be an interesting read...

u/Hypertroph · 1 pointr/TumblrInAction

It's a great ingredient, actually. You should try it some time.

u/T-Breezy16 · 2 pointsr/TumblrInAction

Well, it's also currently listed on amazon.

Thankfully, copies are currently unavailable

Actually. The Irish were slaves , not indentured servants. Although I'm sure there were some Irish who were

Good sources for research:

From this source is a nice quote:

"There has been a lot of whitewashing of the Irish slave trade, partly by not mentioning it, and partly by labeling slaves as indentured servants. There were indeed indentureds, including English, French, Spanish and even a few Irish. But there is a great difference between the two. Indentures bind two or more parties in mutual obligations. Servant indentures were agreements between an individual and a shipper in which the individual agreed to sell his services for a period of time in exchange for passage, and during his service, he would receive proper housing, food, clothing, and usually a piece of land at the end of the term of service. It is believed that some of the Irish that went to the Amazon settlement after the Battle of Kinsale and up to 1612 were exiled military who went voluntarily, probably as indentureds to Spanish or Portuguese shippers."

"The Irish slave trade began when James I sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well."

There are a plethora of other sources to be had on google search. Its a very interesting topic that I enjoyed reading about!

Edit: black slaves cost 50 shillings, where as the Irish cost 5. Part of the reason was because the Irish were considered "dumb" and they could easily slip away and blend in with other white people.

Really, Irish history is fucking coated in blood, racism, prejudice, and stereotypes.

To be fair, a lot of native civilizations had radically different conceptions of marriage specifically, and the gender roles that go with each.

For instance in one specific native american tribe, people married according to which jobs they worked, regardless of anatomical sex.
So a male who did the work normally done by a male, marrying another male who did the work that was normally done by a female would not be viewed as strange at all.

There are plenty more examples, and [this book] ( does a good job of presenting them.

That being said, anthropologically, gender has usually mimicked sex, which is obviously binary with few exceptions

You should enjoy your Natural Harvest, both in food and in drink.

u/fahrenheitrkg · 10 pointsr/TumblrInAction

There kind of is a book...

Real Knockouts: The Physical Feminism of Women's Self-Defense.

Except, it's not a self defense book so much as a book about self-defense. You're not going to learn how to defend yourself by reading it, but the author might convince you that the feminist movement could focus on self defense as a strategy for physical equality.

u/Bill_H_Cosby · 0 pointsr/TumblrInAction

I remember that ama, the book is called "Natural Harvest: A collection of semen-based recipes"



And dont worry, neither of the links are NFSW

u/Sunfried · 32 pointsr/TumblrInAction

There's actually a decent amount of Academia dedicated to figuring out how the Irish transitioned from identifiable ethnic minority to other white people. The most famous example is about how the Irish came to become oppressors, which is oF cOuRsE synonymous with white.

But the most profound way in which they became what was... they assimilated.

u/awj42 · 1 pointr/TumblrInAction

The Amazon reviews for these are hilarious too...

u/pokemon_fetish · 2 pointsr/TumblrInAction

It seems this famous image comes from this book.

I couldn't find the page in the "Look Inside" part, but I could see myself ordering this just to find it.

Used of course.

E: The reviews are kind of fun to read I guess.

u/hadapurpura · 1 pointr/TumblrInAction

To be fair, BIC did make women's pens. It didn't go well.

u/Prof_Acorn · 0 pointsr/TumblrInAction

They weren't as "pure" as other whites, and were ridiculed in America for quite some time - some even being used as slaves alongside african slaves. If you played the recent game Bioshock Infinite you may have noticed how the Irish were objectified alongside blacks in the depiction of Columbia.

Also see:

"Irish Americans were not always considered white."


Edit: The marginalization of the Irish really began during the Plantation of Ulster by the English, where King James stole Irish land and gave it to wealthy brits. Also, the Potato Famine wasn't because there wasn't enough food, but because the English stole it all.

u/Ennyish · 7 pointsr/TumblrInAction

Oh, yeah, I read that book for my humanities class in college last year.

As Nature Made Him: The Boy Who Was Raised as a Girl.

I still think transgenderism is real though, but what do I know, I'm not a behavioral psychologist or a sexologist.

u/CountedCrow · 3 pointsr/TumblrInAction

How about this?

"There's no such thing as 'reverse sexism' or 'reverse racism.' This is because either is defined as 'the belief that one (sex/race) is superior to another, with nowhere in the definitions there being any requirements of the sexist/racist being in a position of power. In fact the phrases 'reverse racism' and 'reverse sexism' are ducking fumb because they imply that sexism can only be against women and racism can only be against minorities."

There, that's a little less stupid.

And as for the comment, yes, if it's in a professionally printed textbook handed out by your university or school, it's pretty likely that it's true. However: this is kind of an exception, if the author can't be bothered to consult a dictionary.

u/PMmeAnIntimateTruth · 6 pointsr/TumblrInAction

Bic does have a For Her pen. And now I'm going to search this subreddit for it.

u/TheLostSocialist · 5 pointsr/TumblrInAction

It should be this. I've a few excerpts from this book from a gender studies course I took, and the typeface and style of the various footnote boxes is the same I think.

u/begrudged · 1 pointr/TumblrInAction

As Nature Made Him by John Colapinto, if we are thinking of the same book. The child in this one wasn't intersex; there was a botched circumcision involved.

u/mackeya879 · 2 pointsr/TumblrInAction

Women have a pen made specifically for them...I mean seriously, why are we complaining?

u/lorok · 3 pointsr/TumblrInAction

So yes and no. The irish weren't considered to be black, but they weren't white people. They were segregated and seperated. Being involved with the irish was bad form, etc. etc.

u/mygawd · 9 pointsr/TumblrInAction

I found the pen:

While most of the top reviews are jokes, there are also hundreds of people who seem to be legitimately angry and think it's sexist to market pens specifically towards women. Not saying they're rational, but these are people who get mad at anything that slightly tries to market to one gender no matter which gender it's supposed to be for

u/Cyhawk · 5 pointsr/TumblrInAction

The Redneck Manifesto, Jim Goad puts a good finger on why exactly people in the US confuse class with race and even predicted the rise of SJWs to some extent years ago. Other material such as Lies my Teacher Told me and A people's history of the United States help put a better perspective from a historical standpoint.

TL;DR the books: The Wealthy (read: Not rich, but wealthy) decided that after the Civil War and after the conclusion of the French Revolution, they would pit the poor against each other and fight for the scraps instead of turning their eyes upward and see who is dropping the scraps. Seems to be working well.

u/AndyAndrophile · 51 pointsr/TumblrInAction

lol that's a pretty elaborate troll.




oh...ohmyfuckinggodno. it's real. no no no no no no

And she's a professor at the University of Wisconsin. ...And UW gave her AN AWARD a year after that leaking bucket of rancid horse cum disguised as a book was published.

I can't...I. someone help, please. op pls. pls halp.

> That said, I largely remain in support of the people involved. That does not mean I support everything our military does but I will be good to the troops. I've seen what happens when people ignore them and their issues after war.

People seem to have a hard time to distinguish between the organization / structure as a whole and the individuals in them. I have sympathy for what many of them have and go through, I am still rejecting the military as an organization though, especially the way it is often use, as a short cut to a political solution.

As have said for a long time, and it almost always gets downvoted: Global politics are paid for in the blood of the young and stupid and I guess I should amendt it by adding "Patriots".

> Just in case... many of us don't wear clothes covered in flags. Our flag seems to be a biggie with people from other counties. More of a big deal than it is here. You'll usually find more people doing it on specific holidays like the 4th and at specific events. It's not 24-7 flag time.

I've lived in the states, I sort of know the reality on the ground. But there is definitely almost a fetishization of the flag in certain parts of the American population. Also, politicians seem to love the flag. Think of the little flag pin they all wear to show how "patriotic" they are.

> Change with weather. It's what Americans do.

Oh not disagreeing. My main point about the police though is that this is something that has been going on for a long time, as you said, that's been around at least since the '60s with the establishing of the first SWAT teams in LA. Funny how that all started around the time of the civil rights movement in the US started.

> It is a way to recycle equipment the military uses without junking it and letting it rot.

Here's a question for you: Do you think a police force that is part of the community should be equipped with tools that is used to suppress armed resistance? Because this is essentially what the police in North America seems to have become. There are the cops, and then there are the civis.

> Trailers and all terrain vehicles that can be used in search and rescue operations or to reach people during natural disasters such as floods or tornadoes.

You know how that works in other countries, and worked for along time in the US? Civil Defence. In Germany for example it's the "Technisches Hilfswerk" "Technical Support Department". They would be in charge of large scale search and rescue operation or disaster management. They have local troops that are drawn as volunteers from the community. Police and Military can be mobilized to assist, but if so, purely as man power under THWs direction.

The US had a civil defence department as well but in 2003 was rolled into the DHS, which means essentially it stopped existing.

But again, that sort of supports my point. It is all structured around military ideas, often invisible and, one could argue, with good intensions, at least at the outset.

> The police in my town are trained at a community college (it's a impoverished rural area) and they are not trained to be like the military.

Actually this is probably worse, because often these smaller department look at larger ones to "figure out how to do things" and this means they are sort of doing a "trial and error" kind of thing. There was an interesting documentary called "Peace Officer" I watched recently which looks actually at the smaller communities. It's only a handful of cases, but you have to wonder how often these things happen.

> They seem to be obsessed with American poloce having these deep web of connectivity that allows the police state to flourish. It's a bit out there considering our set ups.

Actually the people I have mostly listened to are your own politicians and the language they use, the terms. America loves to be at war with someone or something. The War on Drugs, the war on poverty, the fight against X, Y or Z etc.

I get why many people in the US do not see this and I am actually somewhat surprised I haven't gotten downvoted more because I just basically told most of America that in my opinion their country is a lie, which again, most other western countries these days are too to varying degrees.

Here's the problem. When people think "Dictatorship" they think of roaming kill squats and an iron fist. When they think "bad nationalism" they think Nazi Marches with torches and book burnings. These are powerful images no doubt, but people aren't stupid, the ones in power, they understand that people understand these images as for what they are, how could they not? They have established that narrative for 50+ years. But that's why you don't do it that way. You're more subtle. The boiling frog principle.

I think the next 20 years will be interesting for the West. Either we will indeed have "won the world" or we will all be in for a rough awakening. Personally I think the latter.

BTW, a book someone recommended to me last week and I am almost through and which explains a lot about the current SJWism as well as a whole host of other things I had wondered about with regards to the US is "Lies my teacher told me".

As someone who didn't attend the US school system I had always wondered about certain blind spots I had noticed with Americans when it came to their own history. Obviously we didn't deep dive into the US history to the same degree as we did to my countries, but there are a lot of things in the book that I was aware off that apparently is almost completely missing from the American education.
