Trans Like Me by C N Lester

Even when we are confused about someone’s gender, and don’t have a greater awareness of what it means to be trans, we have a choice to respond with kindness rather than cruelty.

Trans Like Me by C N Lester is a collection of insightful and thought-provoking arguments about issues like misogyny, transphobia, gender norms, and wrong representation. It’s a great book, to begin with if you want to understand Transgenders and be a better ally, if you want to understand the difference between gender, sexual identity, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig

To other people, it sometimes seems like nothing at all. You are walking around with your head on fire and no one can see the flames.

When it’s difficult to understand our own feelings, how else are we supposed to make others understand the depths of it? Depression and Anxiety can never be recognized by the look on one’s face, not many people are even aware of it, a lot use these words in the form of daily slangs, some think it’s shameful to even talk about it, and most people don’t give it any importance. It is needed to read about it and talk about it.

Superior by Angela Saini

Enjoy your culture or religion, have pride in where you live or where your ancestors came from if you like, but don’t imagine that these things give you any biological claim.

Superior by Angela Saini explores the contribution of Science in racism and how the belief in biological racial differences has been motivating researchers and geneticists all over the world to constantly study the different groups but the history of ‘race’ science has been proved over and over again to be horrendous when the Jews were killed and black people were sold in slavery.

Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.

Becoming by Michelle Obama

For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.

Where do I even begin? What should I say? I am so full of emotions after reading this that it’s difficult to express all that I am feeling. One thing I know for sure is that this book has helped me become a better person than the one I was yesterday.
