Well female blogging buddies, we’ve been put in our place. After all, Nobel Laureate VS. Naipul claims that “no woman writer could ever be his literary equal.” For more specifics about this story, check out this blog post at NPR.
It’s good to know that, simply by nature of being a woman, I am incapable of achieving literary heights. It’s comforting to know that I don’t have to express intelligent thoughts or write anything requiring thought of my readers. After all, I am only a woman so I have nothing worthwhile to offer our society.
Would anyone else like to join me in thanking this “wonderful” man for clarifying it all for me? I’m going to rush out and buy his books immediately, so that I can absorb all of his manly wisdom that has put me back in my place.
