2 Sentence Review: Make it Or Break It (TV Series on ABC Family)

March 30, 2010

Completely mindless series, set in the serene, but never boring Boulder, Colorado, following a competitive girls’ teenage gymnastics team’s journey to the 2012 Olympic games. It’s my guilty pleasure – thanks to Hulu – and I cannot get enough of the tension in the gym mixed with the back stabbing, cheating with your best friend’s boyfriend, and secret drug use that fills every normal teenager girls’ day.

    Richard, There’s discussion of both ptcericas in the introduction to the *Boy-Wives* anthology that was cited. Ifi Amadiume, *Male Daughters, Female Husbands* and Oyeronke Oyewumi, *The Invention of Gender* both have discussions of female-female marriage, though quite homophobic ones. There are discussions in old ethnographies (Evans-Pritchard, *Kinship and Marriage among the Nuer*) and various articles (Melville Herskovits, *Africa* 1937; Eileen Krige, *Africa* sometime in the early 70s; Regina Oboler, *Ethnology* around 1980). On the mine marriages, there are books by Dunbar Moodie and Patrick Harries that have good (though somewhat problematic) descriptions of the practice, which Achmat critiques in the article I cited above. Moodie’s is called something like *Going for the Gold.* Harries’s is called something fairly generic, but it’s about miners from Mozambique. Moodie’s also got an article in the Journal of Southern African Studies, and Harries one in Politique Africaine (I think not sure about that, but it’s in some French journal, perhaps alternatively Cahiers d’Etudes Africaines?).Hope that helps!
