“So I teach at Smith, and one of the things we’re really interested in is how women self-select and, you know, it’s ridiculous how easy it is to take it personally that it’s your work, as opposed to men who say they’re messed up.  So the women decide that my work isn’t good. And the men decide – and this is like, you know, over decades and we still haven’t shifted this – that the editor doesn’t know crap.”
