Heaven forbid ("ostracizing" Shakespeare)! He was a proponent of women's rights through his writing.

PS, does leptoq think that his punctuation makes him fun to talk to? !!!! .....

Sir Anthony Sher claims Shakespeare was afraid of woman.

We will not offer you up for sacrifice this year.  But be advised that you are on the short list for 2019.  :D

The wood should be dry  by that stage. Good timing.

Some people also claim that Shakespeare's real name was "Sheikh Zubayr".

I thought it was originally written in Klingon.

To shift gears, let's look at diamonds as art.  Sometimes in unexpected ways.

Anselm Kiefer, For Paul Celan: Stalks of the Night, 1998-2013
Sheets of lead, paint, and diamonds/diamond dust

I saw this at the Royal Academy of Arts - AK exhibition a few years ago. It was truly amazing - start to finish.s
I do not seek; I find.

wiki tells me that Sir Anthony prefers the company of men, so he may have been projecting,

I saw that Kiefer exhibition too and was everything short of impressed. One sec... Here's our old discussion about Kiefer: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=96019&p=731768&hilit=kiefer#p731768 :-)

I can believe Shakespeare was afraid of women. Every wise man should be. Anyway, let's switch back to gender free.
