Pickpick

The only logical reason for this book to be banned anywhere is that the conservatives reading it are down for a world similar to Gilead and they don‘t want the rest of us warned. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

GingerAntics This book is poignant. It should be required reading for every high school student. It opens the chance to talk about respect for all, freedom for all, consent for all. If those things offend your precious sensibilities, you‘re children need to read this book even more and so do you. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 2y
GingerAntics This book is timely, seeing that we are - right this minute - faced with a president who is threatening to dispose of the democratic process for his own gains. This book has become even more timely in the last week and a half with the very real possibility of a new SCOTUS judge that would gladly take away women‘s rights to respect, freedom, and consent, even though that means she is forfeiting those rights for herself!

Branwen YES! 👏👏👏 2y
Scochrane26 When I heard about RBG, I texted my friend that this book is very close to reality now. I first read it about 20 yrs ago, but each time I read it, it‘s a little scarier. There‘s a reason people dress up as handmaids at protests. 2y
GingerAntics @Scochrane26 I get why they do. It‘s clever, and it forces these idiots to see that trying to keep this book out of people‘s hands hasn‘t worked. I also feel like it‘s just giving them what they want, though. These people WANT silent women. These people believe a woman‘s highest destiny is pregnancy and motherhood. It‘s clever among women, but dangerous among men. 2y
GingerAntics @Scochrane26 this new SCOTUS nominee reminds me of Serena Joy/Pam/Thelma. She wanted Gilead, she helped bring it about, until she had it. 2y

This could be said by any evening news anchor tonight, frighteningly.

I remember this line from the show. It stood out to me on the show, and it stood out to me in the book.
I‘m sorry, but this belief is a cop out! It is perfectly possible to make things better for everyone. The only people who will be unhappy are the selfish people, because better for everyone doesn‘t make them feel special.

I started reading this once before the Hulu show just started, but I got caught up in school (teaching) and since my mother was waiting to read it, I let her read it thinking I‘d finished it at Thanksgiving. I never saw the book again, and my mother has never read this book. (I‘m pretty sure it was left in Dallas, in the exact same place she stashed it in when I gave it to her.

GingerAntics Since it‘s banned books week, I thought this would be the perfect time to finally return to the book. 2y

My September and October TBR pile since I'm having surgery at the end of the month and I'm going to have a bunch of free time. I've been good at reading recently and I'm really hoping I can keep it up 🥰

How to adjust having to be home all the time. I was used to always being stressful with work and not picking up a book in forever, being home brings some memories of lesser good times but after seven days I'm either adjusting or collapsing. Either way, I finally have time to read! Be safe.
