Reality Bites Back from the Author: Jennifer L. Pozner. Nearly every night on every major network, “unscripted” (but carefully crafted) “reality” TV shows routinely glorify retrograde stereotypes that most people would assume got left behind 35 years ago. In Reality Bites Back, media critic Jennifer L. Pozner aims a critical, analytical lens at a trend most people dismiss as harmless fluff. She deconstructs reality TV’s twisted fairytales to demonstrate that far from being simple “guilty pleasures,” these programs are actually guilty of fomenting gender-war ideology and significantly affecting the intellectual and political development of this generation’s young viewers. She lays out the cultural biases promoted by reality TV about gender, race, class, sexuality, and consumerism, and explores how those biases shape and reflect our cultural perceptions of who we are, what we’re valued for, and what we should view as “our place” in society. Smart and informative, Reality Bites Back arms readers with the tools they need to understand and challenge the stereotypes reality TV reinforces and, ultimately, to demand accountability from the corporations responsible for this contemporary cultural attack on three decades of feminist progress.

Dear Diary Reality Bites from the Author: Myka T. Clemens. It has always seemed very strange to me that soooo many people can go through their whole life in a kind of trance. As the saying goes "They live in the land of Denial!" I visited there for about thirty years, and I must say, that when the fog finally lifted it really was a sort of relief. No more lying, covering up or denying the truth. No more delusions of the way that you wish things were, and pretending to the world that this is the way that things are. I guess it was also saddening how much time was lost and how things could have been different if only you were conscious of them. Why do we live a life of lies? There are probably as many reasons as there are people. We live a lie for love, money, wealth, fame, security, etc, etc. We have to play the game of life the way society or our families dictate so as not to disappoint. Our whole lives revolve around pleasing others and getting them to accept us. lsn't that whole concept a lie? I've always hated lying, but now I do it on a regular basis. I see why people do it because it gets easier over time. I can barely tolerate someone who always lies to get what they want, or to make themselves seem better than they really are. lt's one thing to have someone lie to you and you aren't aware of it, and it's a whole different thing when you catch someone lying and they won't own up to it. That's pretty much lT for me. I guess that's why I have some 'stress' issues. lt takes A LOT of self-control to keep yourself from smashing someone in the mouth. I read a little saying a while ago which said "Sarcasm, because it's illegal to beat the shit out of someone!" I truly love and agree with this.

When Reality Bites from the Author: Holly Parker. Learn how to use denial to help you when you are facing tragedy and how to recognize and move past denial when it becomes counterproductive. Denial is often seen as an inability or unwillingness to face unpleasant or difficult realities--from financial losses, to illnesses like alcoholism, to larger social issues like climate change. In some instances, denial can be detrimental because it can keep you stuck in a cycle of destructive behaviors. However, denial can also be very useful for helping you get through hard times, allowing you to tap into your resiliency for emotional survival.With great insight and originality, author Holly Parker shows you how to use denial as a buffer in the face of tragedy and how to know when your use of denial has become counterproductive or detrimental. Through a fresh, comforting, and clinically-based perspective, Parker takes the shame out of denial with practical and relatable solutions to uncovering, reframing, and harnessing this very normal coping technique. Hands-on exercises and compelling personal stories help you apply this information to your situation and come to accept your need for denial when it helps, and break through it to face life’s challenges with courage when it hurts.
