Like a lot of girls, I would like to have the chance to talk to somebody man to man. I would love to speak frankly, and with authority. I would say things in a calm, deep, reassuring voice—even if I was bad at it.
It’s ok to be bad at this.
To engage with the history of art or the history of ideas, as a woman, is to interrupt a century-spanning conversation in which the rules of engagement and the topics of discussion have been set by men.
Let me talk to you, man to man, about how this feels.
