Women and Language

Atlantic Magazine posted a cheap-tweat about different ways men and women “process”—a dreadful, meaningless verb—language.

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.
