For all the men expressing their outrage...

…over everything, from Hillary Clinton’s fairly earned nomination as candidate for president of the US, to Bradley Cooper not actually being Chris Kyle (though he played him in the movie American Sniper), to Ghostbusters being actually a decent movie for what it is, to women having opinions online…

You obviously have serious feelings about things you know nothing about. So, here, have a quote:

Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact.
George Eliot

Oh, and by the way, that quote? Written around 1879. And George Elliot? Pen name of novelist Mary Ann Evans.

Who is surprised that “She used a male pen name, she said, to ensure her works would be taken seriously. Female authors were published under their own names during Eliot’s life, but she wanted to escape the stereotype of women only writing lighthearted romances.”?

Answer: no woman who has dealt with men and their prejudices and delicate feelings is surprised.
