re-reading "the magus"

these events could have taken place only in a world where man considered himself superior to woman. in what the americans called "a man's world". that is, a world governed by brute force, humourless arrogance, illusory prestige, and primeval stupidity... men love war because it allows them to look serious. because it is the one thing that stops women laughing at them. in it they can reduce women to the status of objects.
that is the great distinction between the sexes. men see objects, women see relationships between objects. whether the objects need each other, love each other, match each other. it is an extra dimension of feeling that we men are without and one that makes war abhorrent to all real women -- and absurd.
