    So a book that by your own admission helped a bunch of people is wrong?ย  And I am supposed to believe this because of reasons.ย  Hannah, you haven't been in a relationship since you were a teenager.ย  Lucy I am not sure you have ever been in a relationship.ย  So why should we take what your saying at face value?

    Wait, Leena, so gender is a 'performance' that is in no way rooted in science/biology? Femininity and masculinity are just learned, performed behaviours? So if I – a reasonably masculine man – all of a sudden wanted to be feminine tomorrow, I'd be able to pull it off easily, because all gender is just an act, right? I could make my deep voice high, my deep laugh musical and girlish, I could sit in a feminine way with my legs crossed, I could toss my hair, and so on, and people would be utterly convinced?

    Or would THAT part be the act, but my actual gender be something utterly natural and psychologically deep-rooted? Something that I simply could not change, in spite of my best efforts to 'perform' my way out of it?

    By the same token, why is it that you, Hannah, and Lucy are feminine? Is it because you choose to be, is it because you're performing, is it because the patriarchy has determined that you must be? Or is it simply because that's the way you are; because you just happen to have the essential, innate quality of femininity?

    Dress-up and roles are one thing, but actual gender is fucking real. We are biologically programmed to experience it in ourselves and to notice it in others.

    Stop chatting shite.

    John Gray and this book is literally a thing we have to reference in my a level English language course when we talk about language and gender, we have to refer to it as a credible theory, but then if we want (which trust me, I do) we can tear it apart and say why it's bullshit, but also back it up with other research!

    Didn't like this video too much but one thing really pissed me off was the comment from Lucy (6:40) about men not being socially inept and laughing off the idea that it would require teaching for a man to understand how to function socially. Making friends and building relationships is a difficult thing for lots of men, as socialising comes less naturally for men. Men very rarely call each other or go out for coffee, it felt very much like you were laughing at one of the biggest issues for a lot of men, isolation.

    I think, when assessing a source of information, it's not enough to consider what is true; you also need to consider what is useful. It's a recurrent trend in science that one will use a scientific conclusion to develop a device that will reveal that conclusion to be mistaken. It was always mistaken, but that did not matter, because it was useful.

    Eratosthenes was the first human being who figured out that the world was round. He began with the notion that the Earth was flat before carrying out studies that led him to the conclusion that there was a curvature to the Earth's surface that just happened to be so slight as to defy detection by any but the finest feats of observation. "The Earth is flat," was not true, per se, but was useful as a starting point.

    It is interesting to note that the two critical comments below that were here yesterday have been removed or hidden by Hannah. Why is that?

    I read the comments and they weren't in any way trolling or obnoxious but, for some reason, they have been either removed or hidden from view.

    One comment was questioning your assertion that gender is a "performance" and the other comment highlighted the fact that the people in the video don't seem to be aware that socialising and communicating is, for many men, a very different experience from that of women.

    I've always had a very high regard for Hannah since I came across her channel (I also thought the Tedx talk was really good) however, her lack of insight into this issue does make me stop and reconsider this.

    However, what really made me change my mind is when I scrolled to the very bottom of all the comments and found that the critical comments could no longer be viewed. Is this really a channel that doesn't allow any dissenting voices to be heard? Let's see long how my comment stays up.

    [EDIT] Apologies – one of the comments I refered to is there but the other is not

    I love watching Lucy on her channel but something about the book club doesn't always work well. It feels like Lucy doesn't have much input. Yes, I should listen to the podcast to hear about their opinions on the books fully but there must be a point to the youtube videos- I guess so un-podcast-y types like me can take part too. I've watched most of the Banging Book Club vids and it always comes across as a bit unbalanced, with Hannah and Leena actually discussing or critiquing and Lucy throwing in the odd (often meaningless) comment. I don't know if it's confidence or maybe she didn't read them all thoroughly enough or what but it it makes for slightly uncomfortable viewing.

    I did a quick scroll of the comments and I didn't see anyone else mention the same so I must be alone on this one. I just really want to see Lucy contributing more! If anyone reads this (especially Hannah, Lucy or Leena) I hope I haven't come across as too negative, I was hoping to be constructive. I know tone doesn't always come across well on here. xx

    hey could you guys do a review on "the girl he left behind" by Tahlie Purvis on Wattpad? (Wattpad is a free websiteapp btw) it's really interesting, like the structure and the language used. it's about slut shaming and how it can happen and how it affects various characters. really heartbreaking in some points. it takes the whole story of 'the nerd falls for the player and gets revenge on the slut that the player is dating' and turns it around for the 'slut's' story

I don't know if you have noticed the lumps on your chests for instance. If that's a performance you deserve an oscar ๐Ÿ™‚

    i find it interesting that an individual may consider his/her own understanding/expectation of what "basic human decency" is, or what may constitute "basic" to be a … fact??

    it seems so to me, therefor it must be so?
    how do we decide what is considered basic?

    the way i see it, it seems you girls demonstrate his very point!
    we don't necessarily share the same ideas about what qualifies as "basic human decency".

    why would you wish to mock this effort to bridge the gap?

    and while we are at it, perhaps you can help me out:
    as a young teen i learned about a female expectation that a man should put down the toilet seat.
    i accepted and internalized this lesson without hesitation.
    a couple of years ago my world was rocked when i heard someone ask plainly: "why is it that men don't request women to leave the seat up?

    I won't listen to the podcast because you all just proved you're a bunch of twenty something girls with no current possible hope of finding a wonderful mate and starting your adulthood. Try reading the book again when you get to a point in your life when you're not acting like some teenage girls who haven't arrived at the grown up world yet. Honestly, I'm a big fan of Hannah and her videos, but that book is honestly good and realistic and truthful and you all acted like a bunch of 14 year olds that haven't dealt with the opposite sex, except to drink and have sex with. Unfortunate!

    I said this last year and now I'm kind of dissapointed it happened againI know and understand that most of your audience is from the UK or USABut I'm from Brazil, and I really wanted to keep up with the Banging Book ClubBut most of the books you guys pick are not that """famous"""" internationally So in 2016 I was only able to read Lolita and Men are from Mars because they are the only books that I could actually find in libraries/ bookstores (otherwise I would have to buy imported copy, which is fine for one book, but gets very expansive for ten).
    Basically, what I'm trying to say is, from the look I took at the list, I would probably only be able to read 3 books (50 shades, virgin suicides and carol), 4 if I convince my mom to import Hannah's book.

    It's fine and I understand, I just don't like to feel left out.

    Gender is a genuinely scientific thing. If it isnโ€™t then you cannot justify the existence of transgender people. Obviously, they exist so gender must also be genuinely scientific. Not to say this book sounds like itโ€™s ACTUALLY good, but to suggest this is just patently wrong.
