Master Reviews List

Here at Bisexual Books, we receive frequent queries for lists of books with X demographic, genre and/or quality to them. Often we reply with a few suggestions culled from our recent memory which may not be reflective of the full gamut of works we’ve reviewed.

This list isn’t perfect. We will update it within a week or two of every new review we post. This list is not heavily detailed (for heavier details, please click the book’s title and read our full original review!) but should prove a handy resource for anyone who would like to find our thoughts on specific titles, good bi YA (or historical fiction, nonfiction, erotica, etc), character demographics, etc.

We hope you find it useful!

My Little Recommendation: Feminism is Magic

So, many have been asking me for advice on who to follow and I thought I would write some down. I’ll do my best to include some information about them, some you may know and some not. If anyone on this list would like to be taken off please let me know.  

marinashutup

Funny, dry, deadpan, biracial, cis, straight and has an amazing and incredibly educational youtube channel. Big dork. Big heart. Dermatologists hate her. 


katblaque

Kat is a black, straight trans woman who destroys anyone who comes up against her. It’s brutal and entertaining, she’s like The Gladiator only pretty and better dressed. Also has a kick-ass youtube channel that I love and everyone should watch.


misandry-mermaid

Pansexual, ethnically Jewish, cis and sharp as a really sharp tack. Her blog covers all kinds of social justice issues thoughtfully. Quality.


ask-an-mra-anything

White trans man and feminist ally, is very chill even when being flooded by menimists. Abuse survivor who speaks about that fairly regularly.


samanticshift

Cis, white, don’t let the pretty photography pictures she posts fool you, if you piss her off and she’s in the mood she will drag you down into the depths of hell and use perfect citations. She blogs with a critical eye, talks about ED recovery and anti-ableism. 


watercolorblackcat

Cis, white, ace vegan feminist. Her blog mostly focuses on social justice and animal rights. If that is your thing then you are likely to love her arguments. 


claudiaboleyn

Bisexual, biracial, cis. She has a great youtube channel as well and sings like an angel, which fits since she always manages to remain serene even when surrounded by hate. She’s very outspoken and honest about her own mental health journey and promoting conversations about mental health. Has very strong feelings for the Maximoff twins. 


smoothiefreak

Akilah…obviously. Well known black youtuber who can boil complex ideas down into easy to digest ones and make you laugh and learn.


newwavefeminism

Nigerian American feminist and teacher. Has blog section called “FeminismU” or Feminism University where she has compiled feminist writings and links to resources that could be useful to many people.


fandomsandfeminism

Bisexual blogger and educator, you can follow for all of her amazing content, but her take downs of capitalistic greed in society are a stand out menu item. 


stripperina

White sex worker and activist , posts about decriminalisation and sometimes some of her amazing work.


rainfelt

White, cis, demi/pan sexual, homoromantic. Always manages to have something well thought out to contribute to conversation. 


mirandaadria

Latina, pan, cis and badass. She has a youtube channel where she rants unashamedly about things that matter to her and a lot matters to her. Very determined ally to causes she supports and it not afraid to call anyone out.


chescaleigh

Black, straight, cis and hilarious. Her commentary is insightful and her allyship to other causes seems genuine and considerate. Her own channel is full of brilliant and cutting insights into many social issues and her work on MTV’s Decoded is so worth making the time to watch


clarawebbwillcutoffyourhead

I don’t think her name is hyperbolic, I think she is capable of rending heads. Sex worker and activist. She has amazing resources and information regarding sex work and her blog is full of information for sex workers and allies.


penelopticon

Ethnically Jewish/Latina intersex trans woman. She doesn’t write a lot of her own content but when she does she is incredibly insightful and well worded, I find following her and seeing her responses to be very educational and she lets me know when things are cissexist because I don’t always notice. 


fullten

Sex worker and woman of colour, she posts about a lot of different things, sometimes cute anime she likes, signal boosting other people and then other times she’ll write a long and incredibly well sourced polotical rebuttal. She talks a lot about racism, body positivity and abuse. She also makes art and I can’t prove that she is the queen of the fairies, but I’m pretty sure she is. 


thedatingfeminist

White, bi/pan and great value. Her blog covers a number of different areas of feminism but her views are insightful and she seems really open to hearing people and understanding issues. I think her blog is fairly recent but she already has a lot of hate, which is a sign she is doing something right. 


smallswingshoes

Jewish blogger who blogs about anti-Semitism and autism as well as assorted social justice and feminist issues. 


why-i-need-diverse-games

This blog is dedicated to, as the name says, video games and diversity. Or as the blog points out, the lack of diversity. Gender, race and sexuality are huge talking points within video games but if it’s ever going to change we need passionate people like those on INDG.

Made this guy for Kat I felt bad for making the the most depressed girl ever. So I made her a buddy. Updates of his face later will come. Along with more fics for @red-eye-radio

So this is me getting just a little bit tired of only ever seeing the same two plus size faces, or else not seeing them at all because… I dunno, they’re not important or admins can’t be bothered to find them or something else that makes no sense. Or, even worse, seeing people who are size four through twelve on plus size lists. Going by American sizes, fourteen and up is considered plus size unless it’s like a size twelve model who actively says that they think of themselves as plus size. That was my basis for putting people on this list, but I’m obviously not perfect, so if someone is on here you think shouldn’t be, or maybe someone isn’t on here you think should be, please let me know! Last note is that the alternate title of this masterlist You Have No Excuse Anymore, Please Stop And Rethink Your Choices by Panic! at the Disco. No, but really, under the cut you’ll find all of the plus size faces that I myself could find, organized by age and listing gender and ethnicity. I’ll update this as time goes on.

20 Questions

Rules: answer the 20 questions and tag 20 amazing followers you’d like to get to know better!

I got tagged some weeks ago by the amazing @ukcatlawyer also a creative aspiring home interior designer (to be).

I also believe I was tagged months ago by the amazingly creative @devilsbastion for this as well.

So here it goes:

Nickname: none. A small couple of people are allowed to call me Loesje. Otherwise it’s my full first name.

Zodiac sign: it loves water and loves to go in both directions it’s Pisces.

Height: 1.72/1.73 meters

Orientation: straight, hetero, cis(?)

Nationality and ethnicity: Dutch and white

Favourite fruit: I don’t have a favourite. I go by what I like at the moment of buying my fruit and what is on sale that week. I usually have apples and tangerines lying in the fridge.

Favourite season: I like all seasons but if I have to choose: Spring and Autumn (because you can smell the change in the air and that is one of the most lovely smells there are).

Favourite book: I’m looking at my bookcase while answering this and the truth is I don’t have a favourite. I have favourites and that’s probably how it’s always gonna be, for me.

Favourite flower: As with the books I don’t have a favourite. A lot of them are so pretty and beautiful and smell lovely that choosing just one makes it difficult.

Favourite scent: The smell of freshly mowed grass and the smell of rain on warm grass/earth

Favourite colour: No doubt about this one: Green

Favourite animal: Again no favourite.

Coffee, tea or hot chocolate: Tea without a doubt. Love to drink gallons of it. Earl grey is my fave.

Average hours of sleep:  7-8 i s what I at least like to get. Lately more around the 6.5 hours unfortunately.

Cats or dogs: dogs. Don’t own one but my parents do. Cats aren’t liked in my family. Our country side (in more places in the Netherlands) has a problem with stray cats so that’s a one of the reasons why.

Number of blankets you sleep with: one, I believe it’s called a duvet cover in English. On hot summer nights just a sheet and when the temps dip into the minus 5/minus 10 range I might pack up another blanket (fleece) if I sleep alone.

Dream trip: so much places I like to visit. I would love to go back to Australia and New Zealand, see the northern lights, see Cape Horn.

Blog created: august 2013

Number of followers: 352 (maybe some straggling pornbots still follow me but usually I block them right away)

Tagging @minima-life @adorablegorilla @muizhu @sablyte @things-apart @murderxbaby @emelld1324 @dogjpeg @xxxleokuraxxx y’all don’t have to answer if you don’t want to I’m just curious 

To all my women followers: whether you’re queer, straight, trans, or cis; whatever your nationality, ethnicity, race, or color; whatever size waist you have; regardless of whether you’re disabled, physically or mentally; whether or not your family, culture, or society at large values you; whatever social class you are born into; despite who your family is,You are so worthy of respect, love, and support. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.

anonymous asked:

Are you a feminist? I'm sorry if this is rude, but you seem like you are which is awesome but I didn't want to presume. I know this seems silly but I really am just curious.

HELL YES I AM.

and frankly, that is the ONLY acceptable response to that question. people who aren’t, or who think feminism is a dirty word, frankly aren’t people i trust or have a very high opinion of.

i’m also an intersectional feminist, i.e. i recognize that race, class, religion, economic status, ethnicity, education, cis-or-trans status, LGBT, and all other categories play a pivotal part in how women from different walks of life experience the world and the challenges that they face. so-called  “white” feminism, which empowers white women by using racist and sexist tropes about what a “strong woman” should look like, and silences other women who don’t fit into this middle-class american model, is just as harmful. if someone’s so-called feminism doesn’t empower and support and value ALL WOMEN, it isn’t feminism. period.

it is why i enjoy such a diverse and complex range of female characters. i love regina because she doesn’t fit either the ideas of a female villain or a female hero, because she is flawed and messy and unsympathetic at times and yet still keeps fighting the darkness, even if not the way everyone likes to think she should. i love emma because she’s so relatable to me with her walls and her self-isolation and her insecurities and her difficulties with letting in family and love, and everything she’s been through. i love peggy carter because she’s a lipsticked badass in high heels who smashes the patriarchy. i love miranda barlow because she’s a deeply feminine woman who never picks up a sword and loves her pirate husband no matter what, but never bows to anyone and is just as angry about injustice and is brave and fierce as hell. i love brienne of tarth because she DOES pick up a sword and beat the shit out of a smirking kingslayer, but is still an awkward teenage girl who is naive and romantic in her ideas and has suffered so much misogyny and hate for trying to break out of her “assigned role.” i am here for straight and lesbian and bi women, or ace women, or trans women, or whatever or however they identify as such. i am here for women being friends. i am here for women fighting for each other. i am here for women being complicated and flawed and yes, sometimes even unlikable. i am here for women getting justice for themselves. i am here for women that challenge the set-in-stone idea of what a Strong Female Character should be to be acceptable (i have written a lot of metas criticising this trope).

i love ladies getting shit done. i love ladies taking over the world. i love hillary clinton. i love the idea of president hillary clinton. i love the idea of president hillary clinton meeting prime minister theresa may and chancellor of germany/head of EU angela merkel. i love everyone acknowledging beyonce as basically queen of everything (my favorite saying is “thank jesus buddha allah yahweh and beyonce.”) i love ladies who love ladies. i love ladies who love men. i love ladies who are vulnerable enough to love and to have a family and friends and let down their walls. i love ladies who prefer to lone-wolf it. i love ladies who challenge conventional wisdom. i love ladies being feminine and soft and interested in things other than swinging swords, and not being relentlessly derided for it. i love ladies who swing swords.

i think you may be detecting a theme.

and i give exactly zero fucks about anyone who wants to shame me (or anyone else) about it. because the people who made feminism a dirty word are exactly the ones who feel the most pathetic and insecure and threatened by it, and who have a nostalgic idea of some “perfect” society where in fact, we just shut up and stayed in the kitchen and knew our place.

i’m a historian. historical badass ladies are my favorite, ever. challenging ideas of history as one male-dominated linear progress narrative is my favorite. revealing that the present is in plenty of ways just as bad as the past (or in some ways, worse) and that sitting on our laurels about how far we’ve come and how different we are is very, very false.

basically, i love us a lot, and we are fucking awesome.

don’t let anyone ever tell you differently.
