“I respect you," he murmured. "and your views. I think of you as an equal. I respect your brains, and all those big words you like to use. But I also want to rip your clothes off and have sex with you until you scream and cry and see God." -Jack Travis (Smooth Talking Stranger)”
Lisa Kleypas, Smooth Talking Stranger

Lisa Kleypas
“He looked like a fallen angel, replete with all the dangerous male beauty that Lucifer could devise.”
Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Winter

“Oh, he did look like a deity – the perfect balance of danger and charm, he was at the same time fascinating and inaccessible, distant because of his demonstrated flawlessness, and possessing such strength of character that he was dismaying and at the same time utterly attractive in an enticing and forbidden way.”
Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice

Gloria Steinem
“No wonder male religious leaders so often say that humans were born in sin—because we were born to female creatures. Only by obeying the rules of the patriarchy can we be reborn through men. No wonder priests and ministers in skirts sprinkle imitation birth fluid over our heads, give us new names, and promise rebirth into everlasting life.”
Gloria Steinem, The Vagina Monologues

Alfred Bruce Douglas
“I am the Love that Dare not Speak its Name”
Alfred B. Douglas

Gloria Steinem
“I didn’t hear words that were accurate, much less prideful. For example, I never once heard the word clitoris. It would be years before I learned that females possessed the only organ in the human body with no function than to feel pleasure. (If such an organ were unique to the male body, can you imagine how much we would hear about it—and what it would be used to justify?)”
Gloria Steinem , The Vagina Monologues

“Nature can be cruel. Predators are everywhere. Those who don't need to be protected from outside forces often need to be protected from themselves. In society, women are referred to as "the fairer sex". But in the wild, the female species can be far more ferocious than their male counterparts. Defending the nest is both our oldest and strongest instinct. And sometimes, it can also be the most gratifying.”
Emily Thorne

Lisa Kleypas

Jacintha Topaz, Purr Scent I: The Meeting

Khaled Hosseini
“A man's plumbing is like his mind: simple, very few surprises. You ladies, on the other hand...well, God put a lot of thought in making you.”
Khaled Hosseini

Chad Kultgen
“We drive down the road in complete silence for a few miles listening to 50 Cent. As soon as he tells us that he's into having sex, he ain't into making love, Casey turns the volume down and begins telling me the following information: " I love you so much. We're going to have the best life together. I can't wait." Every word she says makes me feel a little more like faking a stroke and pretending to lose all memory of who I was, but it's not until she looks me in the eye and says in all seriousness, "You're my soul mate," that I realize I am not going to marry her.”
Chad Kultgen, The Average American Male

Jeffrey Eugenides
“Children learn to speak Male or Female the way they learn to speak English or French.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

Marianne Moore
“You are not male or female, but a plan
deep-set within the heart of man.”
Marianne Moore, Complete Poems

Aristotle

Aristotle

Margaret Mitchell
“He was so very large and male, and excessively male creatures always discomposed her.”
Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

“Excessive praise arises from the same bigotry matrix as excessive criticism.”
Stefan Molyneux

Alison Goodman
“I found power in accepting the truth of who I am. It may not be a truth that others can accept, but I cannot live any other way. How would it be to live a lie every minute of your life?”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

Marina Warner
“The female form provides the solution in which the essence itself is held; she is passio, and acted upon, the male is actio, the mover.”
Marina Warner, Monuments and Maidens: The Allegory of the Female Form

Muammar Gaddafi

A women, being female, is naturally subject to monthly bleeding. When a women does not menstruate, she is pregnant. If she is pregnant, she becomes, due to pregnancy, less active for about a year.”
Muammar Al-Qaddafi, The Green Book

Oscar Wilde
“The Noblest form of Affection”
Oscar Wilde

Will Advise
“With all the global warming going around nowadays, it would only take the stubbornness of a mule and the patience of a sitting duck to achieve what no man has ever done before – namely melt the ice in a wax figure’s beaten heart that was chopped off and hidden 50 meters under the polar ice caps in Alaska, to protect it from feeling.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

“More than being absurdly blond and absurdly messy, the Young Electrician had one of those extraordinarily sweet, extraordinarily vital, strangely mysterious, utterly unexplainable masculine faces that fill your senses with an odd, impersonal disquietude, an itching unrest, like the hazy, teasing reminder of some previous existence in a prehistoric cave, or, more tormenting still, with the tingling, psychic prophecy of some amazing emotional experience yet to come.”
Eleanor Hallowell Abbott, The Indiscreet Letter

Ferruccio Parazzoli
“Quella macchia laggiù, che rosseggiava al tramonto e che questo crepuscolo fa buia, riempie a volte il mio animo di un'indicibile angoscia. Eppure sappiamo con certezza che il Male, qualunque sia la sua astuzia, la sua potenza, non prevarrà. Tutto è possibile a Dio. Una forza dolce, paterna, può intervenire negli avvenimenti decisivi, perfino il miracolo, cioè un intervento visibile di Dio. Noi cristiani e credenti se sappiamo che una persona è in pericolo di morte,siamo pronti ad intervenire, e se non sarà la terra a smuoversi, muoveremo il cielo. Ecco cosa significa credere in Dio. L'eternità e il suo mistero d'amore. Respingere con tutte le proprie forze l'idea del nulla. É terribile, apre abissi l'idea del nulla.”
Ferruccio Parazzoli

Zeyn Joukhadar
“I've become just like the white boys at middle-school dances: the boys by the wall, earthbound boys, wing-severed boys with stiff bodies. There is nothing behind the door in my chest that should uncage the kind of feminine softness I should have, the kind you told me would settle into my chest and my hips. It never did.”
Zeyn Joukhadar, The Thirty Names of Night

Zeyn Joukhadar
“A drumbeat joins Sami's rhythm, the crowd ripples and separates, and soon we are dancing. Here in this place the city carved out and abandoned, there is only movement and heat and darkness. I can't see my body, or Reem's, or Sami's, or anyone's. I can only feel my hips moving the stale air and listen to the rise and fall of the feet of those around me.

I have been taught all my life that masculinity means short hair and square-toed shoes, taking up space, raising one's voice. To be soft is to be less of a man. To be gentle, to laugh, to create art, to bleed between the legs -- I have been taught that these things make me a woman. I have been taught all my life that to dance is to be vulnerable, and that the world will crush the vulnerable. I was taught to equate invincibility with being worthy of love. But here in the darkness of his abandoned subway platform, I can almost imagine a world big enough for boys like Sami and me to love each other, to dance and let the pain out of our bodies, to breathe and make love and be enough and be enough and be enough.”
Zeyn Joukhadar, The Thirty Names of Night

“Whereas in the twentieth century, there was a distinction between men and women, in the twenty-first century the lines of gender will become more and more blurred.”
Quentin Crisp, The Last Word: An Autobiography

Lynn S. Zubernis
“While male media fans fear being perceived as not sexual enough, female fans fear being categorized as too sexual, or at the very least too emotional.”
Lynn S. Zubernis, Fandom at the Crossroads: Celebration, Shame and Fan/Producer Relationships

“He really was handsome. Not in some metrosexual, slick, pampered way that many of her male acquaintances were back home. He looked like . . . a man. Broad, rugged, imperfect.”
Lana DeAngeli, Mr. Big Wrench & the Heiress

“A masculine man wears his attitude. He is as much comfortable wearing three piece suits as he is in wearing ripped torn jeans. He does not chase love, women, or power. He gets them anyhow. He would never ever give up his masculinity for anyone or anything in his life. He lives by his ideals that are tattooed to his soul. He does not believe in leading a comfortable life with luxuries. Rather he works hard to achieve his goals in life. He lives raw. He wanders often. And his life story becomes a testament to his masculinity!”
Avijeet Das
