I thought the title "Sissy Nation" was a little silly, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the author's talk and agreed with everything he said. He's saying the same kinds of things as the social/cultural criticism in my self-published book (that no one has read), "Entropy and Alchemy", but in my opinion he doesn't go nearly far enough/5(14).

Strausbaugh’s Sissy Nation is one of those books that Sissy Nation book to a lot of the ideas I have about life in the United States. There’s a quote on the back from John Leguizamo, “Very Funny. It hit me where it hurts. I feel unmanly now.” Sissy Nation is funny, but I don’t necessarily think humor is Strausbaugh’s intent.

I hear the same outrage in his writing that I feel looking around at /5.

And our fears, fueled by the popular press, are many.

"Sissy Nation" is filled with humor. But the book is deeper than it appears on first Sissy Nation book.

The author’s approach is to aim at the barn and see what boards rattle, and sometimes it works: For one thing, he’s on the money when he links strip clubs, “Starbucks for Sissy sex,” to a fear of sex, death, intimacy and most other realities of life, and he’s also right to consider 9/11 a genuine example of “Shock and Awe,” even.
