The world is absolutely @%#$&% and sometimes it might feel like there’s no saving it.

For me personally it was such a rough year that I had to stop blogging about books and I slowly stopped reading the further we got into the year.

In Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman, Anne Helen Petersen outlines the different ways that women are criticized or ostracized.
