I'm a student, so I don't have nearly as much time for leisure reading as I'd like. If I manage to read an entire course book instead of just the assigned chapters, I'll review that here, too.
Any thoughts on K. Tempest Bradford's challenge to read no straight white cis men for a year?
I'd have to specify that as nothing by people who as far as I know could be straight white cis men. Sexuality and cis status aren't always covered in the author blurb. Even so, I'd have a ton to read. And honestly, if I didn't have to read books for school, I'd probably manage it without even thinking.
I checked this, because one of the side effects of living in a sexist society is that when a group is 50% women, women are seen to dominate. According to my shelf, of the last sixty books I read, not counting mandatory reading, 17 were by men, and one had male and female contributors. I don't know the sexual orientation or cis status of most of those men, and for many I don't know their race - but when I do know, they're white, cis and heterosexual.
To make this into a real challenge for me, I'd have to break it into segments. Say, 5 books by non-white men, 5 by trans men, 5 by non-binary trans people, 5 by non-heterosexual men, 5 by disabled people, 5 by non-white women. Because reading white non-heterosexual women would be completely within my comfort zone.
