Let me just start by saying that there is no way I am going to do this book justice via this review It s just not going to happen Now with that out of the wayA little background I am a cis white male I identify on the political spectrum as being a leftist preferred or a liberal I believe in euality find racism abhorrent and believe that all people were created eual and should be treated as suchAnd yetWhen Christine Blasy Ford came forward with her allegation of sexual assault against Bret Kavanaugh during Kavanaugh s confirmation hearings I was reminded of a time when I was in high school when I had a crush on someone who was not interested in me I kept at it though trying again and again to get her to show some sort of interest in me Eventually my persistence paid off and after a formal dance one night we made out on the couch in my living room And today I am horrified that it happened I did not know it then but that was me asserting male privilege In Amber Tamblyn s part memoir part manifesto Era of Ignition the scenario I ve just told you about is addressed along with so many other issues a feminist like Tamblyn feels need to be addressed in the age of Trump where not only unfettered racism but unfettered sexism and discrimination against the LGTBIA community seem to be part of acceptable discourse As I have already stated I will not do this book justice here because in just a little over 250 pages Tamblyn addresses so much and it needs to be addressedI ll start by telling you that I read this book for the wrong reason Before I picked it up I knew Amber Tamblyn was the wife of the comedian David Cross who I am a tremendous fan of However in recent years Cross has found himself the target of controversy first telling a racist joke at the expense of Asian comic Charlene Li and then downplaying Jeffery Tambor s abuse of Jessica Walter while doing a media tour for the Netflix produced Arrested Development with other male cast members In the book Tamblyn addresses both of these situations and does not spare Cross simply because she is married to him In fact she uses both stories as examples of how even someone who is supposedly as woke as David Cross appears to be with his comedy and politics I mean he was one of the brains behind Mr Show wields his cis white male privilege without even realizing it No man is spared for doing this she even takes her father to task for encouraging her to tone up and congratulating her when she is successful thinly veiled encouragement feeding into Hollywood s impossible body image standard and it seems rightly so Suffice to say being a fan of David Cross is a wrong reason to read this bookHowever it is possible to do the right thing for the wrong reasons and once I began to read Era of Ignition Cross was out of my thoughts unless Tamblyn brought him up herself usually to admonish him for not seeing how he benefits from his privilege As I said this book is one part memoir and one part manifesto you need to know Tamblyn s journey to understand how she comes to her vision of the world as she feels it should be However while she is writing about her vision of feminism and how it should apply to the world she is cognizant of what she is not advocating for women of color and of members of the LGBTIA who she feels are not given a spot at the table In fact one of the most poignant parts of the book is when she is accused of being a white feminist and she owns it She realizes that even though as a woman she has been oppressed by the patriarchy she herself has benefited from being a white woman and what s a white cis woman Given the format she has chosen to transmit her message to everyone she allots space in the book to both an African American feminist Airea D Matthews and a trans woman Meredith Talusan in order to allow them to have their perspectives heard This is a brilliant move on Tamblyn s part as she knows she does not have the life experience to speak to either of these perspectives By asking these friends of hers to speak her entreaties to consider the points of view of both minority and LGBTIA voices prevents it from just being lip service which is a trap I think it is easy for liberals to fall into It is very easy for those of us on the left to talk a good game but living it is a much difficult proposition and reuires the utmost vigilance to be successful By the end of Era of Ignition I found myself uestioning if I had done all I could to be an ally to the cause of feminism In chapter 18 Tamblyn provides a guide to the things men can do to be better allies the first is to listen rather than talkit only gets tougher from there guys but there is so much to this than two pages of guidance in a 250 page book Remember that story I told you earlier about making out with my crush Tamblyn relays the stories of women in this book that just were eventually so worn down by the continued advances of men that they eventually gave in an had sex just to get it over with Does that mean what I did was an assault I d like to think it wasn t but given my behavior at the time I can totally see that my crush finally gave in so she wouldn t have to deal with it any I m ashamed that I did what I did even though it happened almost thirty years ago I have been lucky this year in that I have read three books that have rocked my beliefs and I hope have made me a better person because of it The first was Elizabeth Catte s What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia which taught me that stereotypical views of Appalachia serve political purposes for both the right and the left The second was Dear America Notes of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas which forced me to view immgrants through a lens where they just weren t another statistic to me but actually living thinking human beings And now Era of Ignition Amber Tamblyn has taught me that even if I think I am giving it my all to be an ally to the feminists in my life I am probably not trying hard enough as the lazy path is just to rely on my white skin and the fact that I have a penis The world can not expect the victims to be change agents What needs to happen is that those of us with privilege need to admit that we have it own it and use it to level the playing field My friend Ed and I like to say we have the face of the enemy the cis white male Maybe we should start using that to change the world If Tamblyn can see what the world should be like I think those of us who own our cis white maleness in the same way Tamblyn owns her white feminism should do what we can to make that vision a reality
