The title says it all. A collection of close to two hundred exposés and analyses of everyday sexist shit (and gender shit, since gender is aligned with sex) that pisses me off.
Includes pieces previously published in The Philosophers' Magazine, Philosophy Now, Herizons, fbomb.org, Humanist in Canada, and Victoria Times Colonist, as well as a great many previously unpublished pieces.
Note: This second edition includes all of the pieces in the first edition, plus seventy additional pieces. Also, note that it includes all of the pieces from the four Shit that Pisses Me Off volumes that address sexism. (The other pieces are anthologized in Just ... Think about It!)

"Every now and then, I run across an author's work to which I feel an immediate personal connection: Peg Tittle's is one. Although she has an extensive publishing history, Sexist Shit that Pisses Me Offis my introduction to her thoughtful and thought-provoking essays. While reading, I found myself nodding in agreement and sometimes grinning in delight that someone else has wondered about a particular thing. Granted, I wasn't 100% in agreement on every topic, but even those really caused me to think and consider the points and arguments presented, and many of these I want to think about further because I'm just not clear in my mind on them just yet.
The author's writing style suited me well. It carried me right along from start to finish; I would normally call it an easy read, except it's not. The title should clue the reader that these are not happy topics or happy essays. I would read a couple of pieces and then needed a breather. I had to step away from the book to think and calm my thoughts. Things hit home, some things that I'd never put words to myself.
I want to say that this book is for everyone but for various reasons, it is not. Some people will never be open to even the most apparent issues. For the rest, I recommend this book be read slowly, a little bit at a time; there's so much to take in, and the emotional impact can be intense. Sexist Shit that Pisses Me Off would be a great book to share with family, friends, and a book club." Karen Siddall,
