Okay, don't really pay attention to the title... I'm just being dramatic because it's finals and I have a lot of essays to write and I don't want to write any of them right now! This was a really hard semester! I took 6 classes and they all ended up being fairly reading and writing intensive... anyway, these are the books that I have read this semester (or at least read most of) specifically related to gender and sexuality. NO WONDER SHE IS CRAZY, you must be thinking, and you are right.
I think if you click on the picture it will get bigger, but for your convenience, this is what my crazy head has read this semester, from top to bottom:

Alright, I have to go read some more and write another essay due tomorrow. Hence the "cry cry cry."
Also, to give you some perspective, this stack of books (*which are just the books I read relating to gender!) goes up to my KNEE! And I am taller than the average American woman.
Also this is to announce that other than Feminist Rapper Friday, which is already scheduled, I won't be posting until I'm done with my finals (probably).
HAVE ANY IDEAS FOR GOOD SUMMER READING? Comment!
