I have to take breaks when reading this book -- I'm happy I decided to rent vs own. Some of its social commentary is stuck back in 1989 and is downright sexist and offensive. (This includes some of the newer additions.)

Some quotes from the author:
"I have often wondered whether some women have what I call 'The Medusa Complex.' Medusa was a mythical creature with snakes for hair who killed people by turning them to stone when they looked at her. It seems possible to me that this ancient myth is now alive in some women in a highly diluted or diffused form. These women think their hair is an all-important means of looking attractive and being sexually alluring and that the right hair color and style can 'knock 'em dead' so to speak."

"If we look at the photograph of the woman with tattoos over a large part of her body [referring to a beautiful lady in a bikini with a back tattoo and sleeve], we have to ask ourselves whether the tattoos enhance or detract from her attractiveness. We are drawn to look at the tattoos but do we do this instead of looking at her as a person?"

"In addition to these more-or-less conventionally understood signs of identity, there are some people who try to mislead others about who they are and what they are like by the signs they use. Consider the following ways in which people play with their identities: Transvestite - Wears clothes of a different sex; Dyed hair - Different colors tied to different personalities; Impersonator - Pretends to be a different person; Impostor - Appropriates a different profession; Fake accents - Pretends to have a different nationality; Passing - Assumes a different race."
