Women are from Venus -- Art is from Mars
unknown

On this monumental day
 1
of thanksgiving
 2
let us spare a moment
 3
for those great
 4
women painters
 5
never to wiggle a brush
 6
and all those long suffering
 7
downtrodden & suppressed
 8
female classical composers
 9
fated to forgo
 10
their symphonic capabilities
 11
in lieu of trivial
 12
child bearing obligations
 13
and other artless
 14
soul destroying tasks
 15
devised by bloodless
 16
and manipulative men
 17
If only a woman
 18
had possessed the foresight
 19
to throw herself
 20
under the King of England's racehorse
 21
a thousand years earlier
 22
today we could be celebrating
 23
the works of a female Bach
 24
Mozart or Beethoven
 25
We might marvel at the strokes
 26
from a Michaela Angelo
 27
a Fanny Rubens
 28
or a Cynthia Van Gogh
 29
but more than a century hence
 30
art holds its breath
 31
and the genius of women
 32
keeps men waiting
 33
still
 34

women are from venus (the only planet that rhymes with penis) thats a shit joke.

i don't like feminism..sexism..racism.... because i know in my heart no matter what skin colour or sex you are, you are essentially going to be the same person...

george elliot deserved a mention
