Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud (2017)

The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman.

Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud is written by a BuzzFeed writer who also published another work of nonfiction about the scandals of Golden Age Hollywood. TOO FAT also focuses on Hollywood, but Hollywood in the present day: in particular, it is a rather scathing and critical look at how various women are treated by the media when they choose to openly defy various gender roles, and what that means for us, as a society.

The Book is divided into ten chapters, each examining unruly female celebrities like Hillary Clinton, Madonna or Kim Kardashian“who occupy all different corners of the mainstream, from the literary world to Hollywood, from HBO to the tennis court. It includes several women of color, but the prevalence of straight white women serves to highlight an ugly truth: that the difference between cute, acceptable unruliness and unruliness that results in ire is often as simple as the color of a woman’s skin, whom she prefers to sleep with, and her proximity to traditional femininity.” according to the author.

“This book covers some very important topics about how women are treated by society. Even though we are moving towards true equality, there are still many areas that need improvement.”

Fortunately, Anne Helen Petersen takes it seriously. She’s got a PhD in “media studies,” which, presumably along with her stint at Buzzfeed, has resulted in a book that’s both exceedingly smart and exceedingly readable. Each chapter looks at a different female celebrity and the ways she is unique, outspoken, and “unruly,” and the way the culture pushes back at her for that—by calling her “too shrill,” “too fat,” etc. And then further connects these women’s dilemmas to larger issues in our society. 

They clearly speak for or represent something important to a lot of people, and none of them show any signs of allowing criticism to slow them down. That’s inspiring, and often fascinating to read about.Tsabary calls parents out on their fears, egos, assumptions, and privileges. She shoots down the practice of time-out or any other consequence that stems for a parent’s need for control. She argues that instead of setting rules that are an ultimatum to children, we should work to encourage children to buy into healthy life choices that fall under the following “Life-Enhancing Boundaries”.
