    At the end of the school year i put on my board a list of books that I think would be awesome for my students to read. Granted I teach freshmen, so i have to keep that in mind. But I try to be diverse in topics and protagonists and authors. I try to keep it light, no real stories about heavy depressing subjects: in 9th grade alone my kids read "The Bluest Eye," "To Kill a Mockingbird," and "The Kite Runner." Basically they get a lot of death, racism, and rape in their lit.

    I still find myself with a bit of a dearth of African-american and female voices on this list.

    Suggestions to counter this?

    the list in the past:

    Fiction:
    Good Omens
    Anasi Boys
    Hitchhiker's (that will ALWAYS be on my list)
    Oscar Wao
    A Confederacy of Dunces

    Nonfiction:
    Assassination Vacation
    Freakonomics

    Comics:
    Ms. Marvel
    Bravest Warriors
    Captain Marvel
    Sandman
    The Watchmen

    Octavia E. Butler is both black AND a lady. Samuel R. Delany is also black and the few of his books I've read were really feminist with strongly written female characters, also very dense with fantastic ideas. Kind of like a readable acid trip (I imagine).

    I'd definitely recommend Lumberjanes for the comics list. Fun, funny, feminist, and queer, and just an all around great all ages comic.

    If you want some more feminist/gender-diverse science fiction in your list, Ursula K. Le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness would be a good place to start. Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale as well, though if you're trying to avoid heavy, depressing reads, maybe not so much.

  • tynictynic PICNIC BADASS Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Teju Cole, although his stuff is pretty heavy so maybe not. Lauren Beukes (Zoo City) - white author but her protagonists usually aren't (she's South African).

    Seconding Ursula LeGuin (Left Hand of Darkness perhaps). If you do the EarthSea trilogy, its worth examining how almost no characters in there are white (and in fact are explicitly stated not to be), but they still apparently managed to totally whitewash the tv adaptation. Actually there's a lot of meta-text to explore in that series, with the way that LeGuin kept coming back to that world long afterwards and trying to 'fix' what she saw as problematic elements in her own writing.

  • QuothQuoth the Raven Miami, FL FOR REALRegistered User regular
    Exactly. The white guys aren't going away. But the ladies might because if no one buys their work they will not get paid to make more.

    A BBC producer is getting death threats on Twitter after he recklessly endangered Jeremy Clarkson's knuckles.

    I know this isn't really a feminist issue, but I thought it was an unusual instance of how victim blaming can even happen to a well-off white guy if the other guy is even richer, older and (by all metrics barring actual skin tone) whiter.

    The Mirror Empire by Kameron Hurley is one of the books I'm working through now. I can't say that I'm a fan so far.


    Some SFF women of various degrees of weightiness, with the book of theirs that I'd recommend as the best starting place:
    Julie Kagawa (The Immortal Rules)
    Ann Leckie (Ancillary Justice)
    Carrie Vaugh (Kitty and the Midnight Hour)
    Jacqueline Carey (Kushiel's Dart)
    Gail Carriger (Soulless)
    Connie Willis (Blackout and All Clear)

    Also, this is perhaps appropriate for this thread: Congratulations to Joanna Jedrzejczyk on capturing the women's 115 lbs UFC belt last night. A brutal goddamn display and a great sign of things to come from the women in the sport.

    I have also tried to find things that are lighter, because GOD DAMN their reading list in high school is just the saddest darkest stuff.

    Sex Criminals is one of those that I read and go "OK. It's good. I recognize the qualities within this that make it good. People who like this do so for good reasons. But nope, not doing anything for me personally, sorry."




    Other authors to add to the list of women writing SFF: Jo Walton, Mira Grant, N. K. Jemisin, Naomi Novik, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Catherynne M. Valente. I haven't read anything by Valente yet - Palimspest is on my list. The others I like, but I'm not wild about. But LMB co-holds the record for most Hugos, so that might be a defect in my taste more than anything else.

    I've been wanting to bring up Steven Universe again for a while.

    First episode this week revealed a same-sex love involving one of the main characters, and it was handled really well.

    And that article doesn't even cover what happened on Thursday, during the two-parter.

    tagging this because it has big late-season spoilers, be warned
    Garnet was revealed (more like confirmed) to be a fusion between two gems, Ruby and Sapphire, both of whom are roughly Steven sized, and both are madly in love with each other.

    They demonstrate this, and the power of that relationship, in the most amazing way possible.

    I'm just gonna drop this here because nothing I say can possible do this clip justice.

    If you are still on the fence about this show, WATCH THIS RIGHT NOW

    I'm making it a text link because recent youtube videos don't embed properly right now.


    I have been in awe of how beautiful and well-made this show is, and it just keeps getting better and better, and I can't even

    Ah Steven Universe
    Where the climax of the season finale is a social darwinist receiving and epic beatdown from a same sex marriage of color

    ARGH YES

    I've been wanting to bring up Steven Universe again for a while.

    First episode this week revealed a same-sex love involving one of the main characters, and it was handled really well.

    And that article doesn't even cover what happened on Thursday, during the two-parter.

    tagging this because it has big late-season spoilers, be warned
    Garnet was revealed (more like confirmed) to be a fusion between two gems, Ruby and Sapphire, both of whom are roughly Steven sized, and both are madly in love with each other.

    They demonstrate this, and the power of that relationship, in the most amazing way possible.

    I'm just gonna drop this here because nothing I say can possible do this clip justice.

    If you are still on the fence about this show, WATCH THIS RIGHT NOW

    I'm making it a text link because recent youtube videos don't embed properly right now.


    I have been in awe of how beautiful and well-made this show is, and it just keeps getting better and better, and I can't even

    Ah Steven Universe
    Where the climax of the season finale is a social darwinist receiving and epic beatdown from a same sex marriage of color

    I love this show,

    Holy shit that was great

    I've said it a lot, but I am never prepared for how real shit gets on that show.

    To a beautiful graveyard, by an insane asylum, with a slightly odd boss.
