They say, “Poetry is a man’s game.”
“Mathematics and philosophy too,” They say. Mathematics, philosophy, two sides of the one coin: the interrogation of reality through symbol. “Ah,” They say, “things concerning the abstract are men’s business.”
“Women are too concerned with the ‘domestic’ to be able to engage with the abstract,” They say, “their minds don’t work that way,” skipping down its well-trod path from Don’t-choose-to to Can-not.
Like everything They says, it can be “proved” to the precise degree it can be disproved.
They is a fool.
