Celebrated sex advice columnist and founder of the Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign, Dan Savage delivers “powerful messages for both the head and heart” (Entertainment Weekly)
From the moment he began writing his syndicated sex-advice column, Savage Love, Dan Savage has never been shy about expressing his opinion on controversial topics—political or otherwise. In the height of his activism, he addresses issues ranging from parenting and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church and health care. Among them:
• Why straight people should have straight “pride” parades, too
• Why Obamacare, as good as it is, is “still kinda evil”
• Why what passes for sex-ed in America is more like “sex dread”
• Why the Bible is “only as good and decent as the person reading it”
Speaking to a broad range of subjects with brutal honesty and irreverent humor, American Savage is a pivotal piece that cements Dan Savage’s place as a provocative and insightful voice in American culture.
Lighten up people
Brilliant and Jaw-Droppingly Honest!
If you've never "read" Dan Savage, hearing his voice can come as a surprise! He certainly doesn't "sound" like the "disgusting, vile, degenerate Anti-Christ" that über conservatives and anti-gay pundits make him out to be! He says what I like to think most Americans would like to say IF they could bypass the "fear of "holier-than-thou" retribution" filter that we have been saddled with since childhood. This book is funny, sweet, rage-inducing, explicit and enlightening (sometimes in the same chapter!) and should be required reading/listening by anyone planning on living and thriving in the 21st Century.
Had to stop at the first chapter
