On men and women

Human creatures are never entirely male or entirely female; there are no men, there are no women, but only sexual majorities.
Find me an obviously intelligent man, a man free from sentimentality and illusion, a man hard to deceive, a man of the first class, and I’ll show you a man with a wide streak of woman in him.
The caveman is all muscles and mush. Without a woman to rule him and think for him, he is a truly lamentable spectacle, a baby with whiskers, a rabbit with the frame of an aurochs, a feeble and preposterous caricature of god.
H.L Mencken
