“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

Emilie Autumn
“He cried when I left, which I find to be standard male behavior.”
Emilie Autumn

“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

Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Winter

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

Karen  Hinton
“…the excitement of doing something for the first time had passed. I laid there in the back seat looking at the moon. It was unobscured by clouds except for a few wisps here and there. (Mitch) put his arms around me, and we looked at the moon together. You think we’ll have a lot of moons like this, this month? Mitch asked. “I hope so,” I said. We turned to each other and laughed. He didn’t try to fuck me after that. We just talked for a while about music, school, our brothers, and Janice, of course. And then he drove me home.”
Karen Hinton, Penis Politics: A Memoir of Women, Men and Power

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

Jacintha Topaz
“I'm going to give you pleasure so good you'll forget your name... You're going to think my name is Yes, God Yes, or Fuck Yes.”
Jacintha Topaz, Purr Scent I: The Meeting

Karen  Hinton
“Clinton has cheated on Hillary for years,’ I said (to his campaign manager James Carville). ‘I told you the story about the time in Greenville in 1984, when he invited me to his hotel room. That’s why I’m not volunteering or doing any work for him. He uses women the wrong way.”
Karen Hinton, Penis Politics: A Memoir of Women, Men and Power

Lisa Kleypas
“He was unbelievably hard. Everywhere. He was in control, infinitely stronger, and he wanted me to know it.

Lisa Kleypas, Smooth Talking Stranger

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

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

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

“The female is, as it were, a mutilated male, and the catamenia are semen, only not pure; for there is only one thing they have not in them, the principle of soul.”

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

Margaret Mitchell

Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Marina Warner, Monuments and Maidens: The Allegory of the Female Form

Muammar Gaddafi

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...

Richard W. Wrangham
“We get into fights or lust for imperial dominion over another nation for reasons of pride.”
Richard W. Wrangham, Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence

“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

Robert M. Sapolsky
“Whether one becomes irrationally risk taking (failing to shift strategy in response to a declining reward rate) or risk averse (failing to respond to the opposite), one is incorporating new information poorly. Stated most broadly, sustained stress impairs risk assessment.”
Robert M. Sapolsky, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst

Robert M. Sapolsky
“In the absence of stress, men tend toward more risk taking than women; thus, once again, hormones enhance a preexisting tendency.”
Robert M. Sapolsky, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst

Richard Elliott Friedman
“1.27: He. In the present age many people choose not to conceive of the deity as male or female. In the Torah, however, there are passages in which one cannot help but understand and translate a divine reference as masculine. The Torah depicts God as male.”
Richard Elliott Friedman, Commentary on the Torah
