But it is such a kind of Gain-giving, as would perhaps trouble a woman.

And here’s a great example for why you might want to actually listen to women. Like – if this intuition you’re having, Hamlet, would trouble a woman – you might want to, um, trust it. A woman’s trouble might have kept you alive, you knucklehead. Misogyny kills men, too. Even in fiction. If men in these plays didn’t dismiss their own instincts, their own emotional truths, their own sense of the room, as woman stuff – if they didn’t dismiss their tears as woman-ish and such, they might survive all these tragedies.

Patriarchy makes the tragedy almost every single time.
