VIDEO – 30 sexist punchlines that are not rap but literature!

Posted on

Summer is here! It’s time to relax, get a tan and take the metro with no air con! It’s also time to read peacefully and immerse yourself in classics again on an idyllic beach with crystal-clear water under a giant shady palm-tree (or under a Quechua tent at the Chiry-Ourscamp camping).

But something’s bothering you. Voltaire, Bukoswki, Oscar Wilde, Proust, every book you read gives you a good amount of sexist content that gets up your nose. You’re telling yourself that it’s just bad luck and that you’d better listen to Kodak Black or XXXTENTACION. And you’re damn right.

Because unlike rap, constantly designated as the major (and most violent) source of sexism in our society, literature and its stars (all male obviously) are strangely spared. To prove it, here are 30 quotes of internationally renowned authors, who are studied in school, presented as references and icons, without anyone pointing out how sexist their work can be.
