Because How Could She Be Competent?


Misogyny is alive and well in our "modern" era. I mean, when you're reading about this amazing find of lapis lazuli in a medieval woman's teeth, and you come across the paragraph,

"But art experts were still skeptical. Some dismissed the idea that a woman could have been a painter skilled enough to work with ultramarine. One suggested to Warinner that this woman came into contact with ultramarine because she was simply the cleaning lady."

... how can you do anything but (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Of course a woman must be the cleaning lady, because heaven forbid a woman could be accomplished, then erased from history.

Reminds me of Arnaud, actually.

F---ing asshole men.
