About this deal

Here, in our author's hands, what's irksome in a woman's everyday life is effectively alleviated with cutting drollery. The Mansplainer, the Concern Troll, the Comedian, the Sexpert, the Patronizer - these men have existed for centuries and these works of fine art prove it. Rather than get me excited to read, the tone and forced jokes actually made me want to put the book down. You'll love this book if you love books like Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit, Milk and Vine: Inspirational Quotes from Classic Vines by Emily Beck, and Awards For Good Boys: Tales Of Dating, Double Standards, And Doom by Shelby Lorman.

One of the images that popped up, which was the first one that I used in the thread, was this painting of a woman holding her bare boob, surrounded by these men. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. It's not all perfect: sometimes the captions get repetitive since they're divided by type of men (the Mansplainer, the Concern Troll, the Comedian, the Sexpert, and the Patronizer) rather than mixed up and some are too vague and circumstantial to be funny. She enjoys historical romance/fiction best, likes contemporaries, action- adventure and mysteries, will read suspense if there's no TSTL characters and is currently reading more fantasy and SciFi.Makes a perfect gift for women and feminists with a wry sense of humor, millennials, anyone who loves memes and Internet humor, as well as history and art buffs.

Examples are grouped into the categories "The Mansplainer", "The Concern Troll", "The Comedian", "The Sexpert" and "The Patronizer". Obviously, that was not the artist’s original intent, but what is so wonderful about art is that you look at it and put your own lived experiences into it and interpret it that way. She Googled “woman surrounded by men” (“because that is what that moment feels like when you’re online,” she said) and stumbled upon a 17th-century oil painting by Jobst Harrich of a woman baring one breast in the middle of a scrum of bald men.I would have much preferred something written by Nicole Tersigni herself, perhaps something reflective about the process of revisiting her content and putting the book together. While the original thread felt like a fresh take on well-known tropes, the book just ends up feeling slight -- or worse, like a case of feminism bowing to capitalism.

If you think about it, that’s something that happens a lot, but also makes you wonder about the painter’s position, whether he meant the painting to be a denunciation or he just sat there watching what was happening, doing nothing to help.Die Autorin hat ein sehr gutes Gefühl für die Kombination aus Bildern und Test und wenn man die Sprüche liest fühlt man mit und sieht den Frauen ihr Leid förmlich an.
