This isn’t great, is it.
I read The Beauty Myth when it came out, and it resonated hard with me: it was an attack not on the urge to self-beautify or self-express, but on the rigid beauty standards women are held to, in order to appease (a) men and (b) capitalism (I was a goth at the time and then, as now, like non-compliant beauty stuff). Fire With Fire had its issues but also its good points - but I barely remember it now. Maybe I should read it again, see what was in it. From then… well…
I did buy Vagina second-hand, but was dismayed to find it was to a large extent just detailing her own (very) personal medical history - or at least as far as I got into it, anyway. I don’t know if the rot set in earlier than that, but I was astounded that it was published, and remain astounded that the sodomy book (can’t remember the name) is still being promoted despite its huge shortcomings, though I haven’t read it.
Going down the QAnon and anti-vax rabbithole, though. I wondered while reading Vagina how well she was (mentally, not her bits, which weren’t well either). It’s not great, and I hope she gets the help I suspect she needs.
