Misogyny Thy Name is Bard

I learned today that I have a reputation at the University for being a woman hater as well as a loudmouth and a bad poet. I can only imagine this is based upon my recent declaration that the two lecturers who grate on my nerves are female. Well, okay. I won't dignify such nonsense with a defence of my liberal egalitarian principles. Let people think what they like. I'm reaching the stage where I don't really care what people think, as long as the people I love still love me.

That's total nonsense. I'm glad you have the good sense to ignore such crap.

Yeah, sometimes I'm amazed by the capacity of apparently intelligent human beings to convince themselves of the manifestly bullshit. But one half of the British population regularly votes Conservative, so I shouldn't be. The woman who called me a bad poet last week, by the way - well one of them - thinks Pound's a bad poet and Joyce is boring, so I take her abuse as a compliment. Little fuckhead.

I think I would have slapped her, which wouldn't have helped the situation.

Although a good slap can be corrective in the right circumstances.
