“The war between the sexes is the only one in which both sides regularly sleep with the enemy.” --Quentin Crisp


"There are times when I wonder whether nature isn't really the one to hold responsible. It seems a lot easier to blame nature than to blame men (although blaming society runs a close second)." --Combat in the Erogenous Zone (1972) by Ingrid Bengis
