352 notes

"Lots of women read fiction. Most men don’t. Women read fiction written by women and by men. Most men don’t. If a man opens a novel, he likes to have a masculine name on the cover; it’s reassuring somehow. You never know what might happen to that external genitalia if you immerse yourself in imaginary doings concocted by someone with the goods on the inside."

Siri Hustvedt, The Summer Without Men

This quote goes out to all the fellas who read fiction. This quote does not go out to the dude who once told me, “I don’t really like female writers as much as male writers.” For real. That happened. The fact that he is still alive and that I have not murdered him speaks to my restraint.

That dude is lucky our whole girl gang hasn’t ruined his life by now. Don’t be that dude, dudes.
