Atlantic Magazine posted a cheap-tweat about different ways men and women “process”—a dreadful, meaningless verb—language. My initial response was to look at the lives and work of three women writers: George Elliot (“Middlemarch”); Virginia Wolfe (“Mrs. Dalloway”); and Louise Erdrich (“The Round House”). Then I thought of the entire span of womanhood—courage, compassion, judgement, forbearance, diligence and was overwhelmed by the shallow, inept comparison to men. Comments invited.
