White Ink and the Great American Macho

Every woman has known the torment of getting up to speak. Her heart racing, at times entirely lost for words, ground and language slipping away.... A double distress, for even if she transgresses, her words fall almost always upon the deaf male ear, which hears in language only that which speaks in the masculine.
—Hélène Cixous, “The Laugh of the Medusa”
