Excerpt

Hey girl, just listening to you talk about Patricia Hill Collins' matrix of domination whereby race, gender, and class ideologies permeate the social structure to such a degree that they become hegemonic and thanking my lucky stars for you.

Hey girl, sometimes I think about Foucault's theory of marriage as a governmentally developed tool that interferes with the appropriation of land rights, normalizes heterosexuality, and subjugates a woman's sexuality and it makes me want to cry with you.

Hey girl, just daydreaming about what a kick-ass, injustice-thumping, crime-fighting duo Emma Goldman and I would make.

Hey girl, you built a room of your own and a room in my heart.

Hey girl, the post-feminist fetishization of motherhood is deeply rooted in classism but I still think we'd make cute babies.

Hey girl, I know how Judith Butler feels about subverting the dominant paradigm and rejecting the naturalization of heteronormativity, but I got you this flower.

Hey girl, my perfect Saturday is a hot cup of tea at sunrise, a trip to the Farmer's Market, and curling up on the couch to figure out bell hooks' theory that feminism is a struggle to eradicate the ideology of domination that permeates Western culture with you.

Hey girl, start a revolution. Stop hating your body.

Can't wait till this comes out! No man could be more perfect for a book about feminist theory musings than Ryan Gosling. He has always been known for his pro-women quotes in interviews as well as his love for his mom and older sister, who have been the key people in his life that he can always rely on and recently saved Laurie Penny, a British journalist, from being hit by an oncoming taxi in Manhattan.
