Just started. We'll see what happens.
I read Slut! for the first time as a senior in college on the recommendation of my roommate. She commented to me something along the lines of having read it long after coming to many of the realizations described in the book & wished she'd read it in middle school or high school. I read it and had to agree; I found myself wishing it were required reading for ALL teenagers, male & female. As for me, I'd already learned those lessons -- in middle & high school, the hard way. As someone who occasionally teaches high school sex ed, I recently reread the book (11/08) in order to find useful excerpts for class, particularly lessons dealing with sexual stereotypes & double standards. Now that I've been a high school teacher for a few years now, it all makes even MORE sense, and I stand by my initial assessment: Tanenbaum's book should be required reading for all teens.
