Brilliant for the feminist or intellectual theorist in your life Aug. 6 2012
By RG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was positively giddy when this showed up in my mailbox. I had almost forgotten that I pre-ordered it! it's been a few years since college, when I took gender studies and read works by Irigaray, bell hooks, Foucault, Fausto-Sterling, and many others that I can't even remember now. I was delighted to discover Henderson's internet meme combining these legendary theorists with pop culture, iconic feminists like Gloria Steinem and Hilary Clinton, the Bechdel test for films, or obscure Latin references to feminist dystopian novels like Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. This subject matter exploring oppression and dark topics is lightened by adding actor Ryan Gosling's face on it. The juxtaposition of serious subject matter with lightheartedness is interesting. I think that adding pop culture to the meme helps make it more accessible to those who would ordinarily be totally disinterested in gender theory.

This delightful meme and its book has prompted me to revisit some of these theorists. I think it's great for people to learn about feminism, check out the theorists for themselves, and this meme will certainly expose a greater segment of society to gender theory instead of just a handful of undergrad and graduate students. I think this meme gives a great platform to explain concepts like the patriarchy or male privilege to others who see the Feminist meme images and are curious about the complex theoretical terms that are often presented in Henderson's work.

This book gives me a lighthearted laugh at complex subject matter and the culture that we live in. Many thanks to Danielle Henderson for creating this meme and this book to help make gender theory more accessible, and to get people thinking and talking about how our society views and regulates gender.

Smart, hilarious, and the perfect gift Aug. 5 2012
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of those books I plan on keeping stacks of around the house for gifts and just to give away in general. Funny, smart and silly, FRG the book is even better than FRG the blog, which is saying something. Cannot wait to see what comes next from the brilliant Danielle Henderson.

High brow hilarity. Aug. 12 2012
By Jessica V. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you like a) tongue-in-cheek academia, b) the oh-so-handsome Ryan Gosling, or c) feminist theory, this book is for you. A few of the pages are laugh-out-loud funny. It's a great book to grab and sit around a coffee table with some girlfriends.

KINDLE VERSION Aug. 22 2013
By someproseandcon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought and almost immediately returned the Kindle version, because this is a book that is formatted as a two-page spread, and on the Kindle, the text and accompanying photos aren't able to be viewed at the same time in most cases (and that's where the genius and humor of this book lies).

I would buy this book for every person I know! While it is small, it is well worth the price. It would make a great gift for any feminist! Oh and it does not hurt that Ryan Gosling is so SEXY to look at!
