“The great and almost only comfort about being a woman is that one can always pretend to be more stupid than one is and no one is surprised.” — Freya Stark (quoted in “East Is West” by Claudia Roth Pierpont)

    Meh. Some of us are not pretending.

    And can I say how much more interesting is a violent man than a stupid woman? He can always have a redemptive, heroic moment. She will just stand there gaping idiotically, trilling, I think I broke a heel!
