“It has been extremely lucky that up to now wars have been fought only by men.  If they had been fought by women, they would have been so consistently cruel that today there wouldn’t be a single human being left on the planet.” — Milan Kundera, Immortality (trans. Kussi)

    What?! Women are good and kind and gentle. All of us. All the time. Also, we bake cookies. We knit. We breast feed, for crying out loud.
