Thank you so much to Netgalley and Tor Books for the advanced copy given to me in exchange for an honest reviewPre reading This better be intersectional feminism Tired of being disappointed by whitewashing in femlitPost reading Well I shouldn t have worried about the whitewashing Hurley definitely tried to be inclusive She was very vocal about acknowledging the need for diversity and in her own shortcomings as a white writer who sometimes makes mistakes with representation in her fiction I didn t love this collection however And maybe it s because I read it on the back of the phenomenal Bad Feminist but the essays in here just didn t move or educate me I actually feel like 23 of the book is falsely advertised this isn t a collection with feminism at the core it is a collection of autobiographical tidbits with feminism as a strong undertone If I had gone in expecting to mainly be reading about Hurley s life and her process as a writer maybe I wouldn t be so disappointed If you are a young female writer penning SF stories then this is for you Hurley gives a lot of advice on how to write although I often felt that the essays came across as an infomercial for her own books and she shows how she has failed in the past and how she persevered until she succeeded This is all great but when a book is sold as being about feminism but is actually a how to autobiography on becoming a successful SF writer in a male dominated world it is a bit frustrating I did ADORE her final essay We Have Always Fought but it was written a few years before The Geek Feminist Revolution and is available for free online I also loved her essay on what it was like to go from able bodied to chronically ill and her first hand experiences with the mess that was the pre Obama American health care system I found both essays eye opening and extremely well written I think one of my main issues with the collection is how thin it all seemed Hurley mentions a few things over and over I know she won a Hugo award because she mentioned it way too often for it to pass my notice and I know she lived in South Africa but as a South African it was really disappointing to read another thin stereotypical representation of the homeland I know she is passionate about feminism and standing up for women on the internet and in the Geek sphere but there was no meat to the bones of her experiences The essays in this collection left me wanting so much Hurley is talented and seems like someone I would love to have at the dinner table if only to have the opportunity to get out of her brain

Kameron Hurley í 4 Free read review ¿ The Geek Feminist Revolution á PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook List Kameron HurleyThe book collects dozens of Hurley’s essays on feminism geek culture and her experiences and insights as a genre writer including “We Have Always Fought” which won the 2014 Hugo for Best Related Work The Geek Feminist Revolution will al. A fabulous fierce essay collection that uplifted my soul in the busy season of graduate school applications Double Hugo Award winner Kameron Hurley writes about the intersections of feminism science fiction and fantasy and the struggles she has overcome in her personal life She sheds light on the sexism women encounter online and in the writing industry in a way that conveys strength and hope Here is an excerpt from one of my favorite essays of hers In Defense of Unlikable Women which I will include various snippets of throughout this review I see this double standard pop up all the time in novels too We forgive our heroes even when they re drunken aimless brutes or flawed noir figures who smoke too much and can t hold down a steady relationship In truth we both sympathize with and celebrate these heroes Conan is loved for his raw emotions his gut instincts his tendency to solve problems through sheer force of will But the traits we love in many male heroes their complexity their confidence their occasional bouts of selfish whim become in female heroes marks of the dreaded unlikable character I loved two things most about this essay collection Hurley s big heart and her commitment to discussing intersectionality Throughout the book she advocates for compassion toward women and men kindness on the internet and justice for those who suffer because of circumstances outside of their control She writes with idealism without sounding naive Her awareness of intersectionality shines as well as she emphasizes the importance of supporting and strengthening the voices of minority writers Here is another uote from the same essay again about the double standard within writing male and female characters Male writers and their male protagonists are expected to be flawed and complex but reader expectations for women writers and their characters tend to be far rigid Women may stray but only so far If they go on deep alcoholic benders they d best repent and sober up at the end If they abandon their spouses and children they d best end tragically or make good Women must above all show kindness Women may be strong but they must also importantly be vulnerable If they are not readers are likely to push back and label them unlikableOverall recommended to anyone who wants to learn about feminism in particular its intersections with science fiction and internet spaces Some of Hurley s essays in the latter half of the collection feel a little repetitive and lack the depth of her critical externally focused pieces Still her courage and tenacity inspire the heck out of me and I am confident this book will rile readers up in the best possible way To end this review one uote from that stellar essay I have uoted twice above Like it or not failure of empathy in the face of unlikable women in fiction can often lead to a failure to empathize with women who don t follow all the rules in real life too I see this all the time in conversations with men and women alike It s these same uestions that get brought up when women who have been assaulted dare to report abuse What was she wearing Did she provoke him by talking back Was she a bad wife A bad girlfriend Was she a good woman or a bad woman This line of uestioning and the assumptions that prompt it is one we would never apply to their male counterparts unless they are men of color This justification of violence against those who step outside of the roles of the dominant culture puts them into can be reinforced or challenged by the stories we tell Stories tell us not only who we are but who we can be They paint the narrow behavioral boxes within which we put ourselves and those we know They can encourage compassion and kindness and acceptance or violence and intolerance and reprisal It all bleeds from the page or the screen into the real world Who deserves forgiveness I d hope we all do
