"Gender Studies (or, Arnolfini Blues)"
Cf. Van Eyck.
"The world is divided into two aesthetic styles: French and German. The color red is German. The color blue is French. Men are German, women are French. I am French. If you disagree with my analysis, you are German."
- Ned Rorem
"The distinction between male and female is very real and very deeply rooted in human nature and human physiology. ...In the very first chapter of Genesis we are told that “God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). The implication is clear: the distinction between the sexes is not only basic to human nature, it’s also uniquely reflective of the divine."
