But it does give them a voice because of the paintings themselves: their faces are so clearly reacting to the lines that I gave the men to say. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). I’m so glad I decided to peek in to mine when I did, so I could snag this before anyone else carried it away!

It also made me want to strangle someone at times though :-) The humor was biting, sarcastic, and just what I needed for a change while locked down at home for this virus that seems never ending.You'll love this book if you love books like Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit, Milk and Vine: Inspirational Quotes from Classic Vines by Emily Beck, and Awards For Good Boys: Tales Of Dating, Double Standards, And Doom by Shelby Lorman.

The book is divided into chapters of paintings, collecting men’s sins into neat buckets: The Mansplainer, The Concern Troll, The Comedian, The Sexpert, and The Patronizer. The only drawback of MtAiAaL is that this book, like much classical art in the Western canon (though I do use the term “classical” loosely, as more modern pieces by Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas are also included here,) is overwhelmingly white. It's a quick read and pointedly comical, featuring chapters titled: The Mansplainer, The Concern Troll, The Comedian, The Expert, and The Patronizer.Probably the situation that I most commonly run into is with the comedian, the guy who thinks he’s so funny while all his jokes are very racist or sexist, and he gets really mad when you don’t laugh at them.

I just wanted to make a quick joke about it because that’s what I like to do with annoying and frustrating things. In her new book “Men to Avoid in Art and Life,” Nicole Tersigni harnesses her skill with a Twitter meme to illuminate the experience of women harassed by concern trolls, “sexperts” and more. Mixing art and laughter, Men to Avoid in Art and Life is a guide that contains all the red flags that you should recognize in a person and then run away from. I want people to share their stories, use it as a jumping-off point to have a conversation about something that might be difficult, and find some joy in difficult experiences.That happens all the time and it’s so annoying: it’s one of those little things that are not a huge deal but are irritating and build up. Hahaha - It is so satisfying to see the annoyed, yet jaded expression on the woman's face in great works of art when the man is being so infuruatingly patronizing! The original Twitter thread was one part performance art, one part satire, and one part exasperated disgust at having your own joke or experience explained back by a 'concerned guy' on social media for the umpty-bajillionth time. He goes to you and says, “it’s a joke”, when he says something terrible, but it’s not how jokes work, and even if it was a joke, it’s not a good one.
