Nobody’s seen much of it yet, which is very disconcerting, very I’m speaking alone in a room with yellow wallpaper, you know? But I feel good.
Writing about feminism and being a woman is a scary thing. I know this book is going to be more controversial. I know some will hate it. I know I’m gonna get mean reviews. But I also think it’s the book I was meant to write. I also think it will help a lot of people. I also think that it’s pretty solid. My book is sort of a memoir about becoming a feminist, a gentle push for those who are afraid to use the word, and an honest look at the importance I feel it holds. I talk about my body, my biracialness, and a lot of other things that I felt were private but, given the current climate, I now feel are important to discuss.
There’s a change coming. There’s a change coming in a dark world, still filled with a lot of pain and shit and people who hurt women and unfairness. But the change is a voice in the fight, and it’s a powerful thing. I see Emma Watson’s speech on heforshe. I see Roxane Gay. I see Emma Sulkowicz. I see pleas for change, and I feel honored to be a smaller voice in the grand scheme of the fight.
So, in a nutshell: I’m tired, I’m worn out, and I’m on the precipice of being really fucking excited about what I have here.
I also think I have a title. Hopefully I will be able to confirm soon!
We can’t wait for thefrenemy's book about feminism!
