    It is quite strange. It's also logical - that we both can read the same thing and get different understandings and views. Happens all the time - that's life.

    Ideological idol? No.

    And if that was true -- it would be my daddy and grandfathers -- and the positive BM relationships I have and have always had in my life. That's not idolatry, -- that's my experience and surroundings. Therefore, that's what I know.

    No - he literally writes about Intersectional Feminism -- meaning Black women intersectionality feminism, He goes hard on Black Feminist and how their views about BM -- are created through WS -- and help to shape the negative perception of Black men in the eyes of Whites/WS -- and others.

    Which I don't have a problem with -- but why not focus on the real issue -- White Supremacy? That's all I'm saying.

    As Curry sees it, intersectional accounts overwhelmingly portray Black women as victims and Black men as perpetrators of violence. Curry’s analysis “dares to theorize Black males as victims and, in some cases, as more disadvantaged than their female counterparts” (p. 232).

    He is also critical of Afro-Pessimists such as Sadiya Hartman for focusing on Black women as paradigmatic victims of sexual violence. How can he is challenge this?

    I 100% agree that Black males and boys have been/are victims and their stories are under represented -- and sometimes silenced + unknown. - Plus, how he states Black men and boys now -- and in the past have been victims of sexual violence, and that white women have been perpetrators of that violence. I also know that BW - have been the perpetrators as well.

    But, to state Black males/men are in some cases more disadvantaged as their female counterparts -- I would like to see examples and get more details about this.

    I also don't get why it has to be brought up as a competition of sorts.

    You can recognize the violence and rape of BM/boys -- while also recognizing and not comparing it to that of BW and girls.

    All and all, I want to finish reading and making sure I really -- as you say - "absorb" the information presented.

    Honestly, I have only read bell hooks. I like her -- and she's a Libra like me. Not really into reading about Feminism. If the C.O.W.S. wasn't covering "Man-Not" - I know I wouldn't have purchased it and tried to read/understand it. I don't usually read gender studies books.
    Oh - Alice Walker - the Color Purple -- but I just saw Minister Farrakhan lecture on the movie a few weeks ago.

    And I can't look at the book/movie the same. It opened my eyes up to how BM were negatively portrayed in both the book and movie.

    Also anybody that's reading or read ManNot...needs to read about Social Dominance Theory...that's what ManNot is is based on...

    If you don't read about Social Dominance Theory (SDT(...you won't understand ManNot...

    Social Dominance: An Intergroup Theory of Social Hierarchy and Oppression is by the originator of SDT
