Women and Women First

Former Roommate: Take any of my books you want.
Me: Do you have any queer feminist theory?
Former Roommate: Are you looking for post-modern or women of color?
Me: I won't read anything that isn't both.

The joke is that her books are pretty much all feminist theory, as might be expected of someone who majored in gender studies as an undergraduate. Throughout her moving out process, my house started looking like the Women and Women First Bookstore from Portlandia.

I love feminism and I love academia, but with titles like the ones above, you have to stop and laugh at it all sometimes.
