“Supposing truth is a woman?” (NSFW)

“Supposing truth is a woman – what then? Are there not grounds for the suspicion that all philosophers, insofar as they were dogmatists, have been very inexpert about women? That the gruesome seriousness, the clumsy obtrusiveness with which they have usually approached truth so far have been awkward and very improper methods for winning a woman’s heart?” [Friedrich Nietzsche]

Steve Sailer: “Because they are better at thinking about ideas than about people, nerds are particularly prone to misinterpreting women by taking what they say at face value. Nerds don’t know much about what women like, so they use logic, which fails.”

    The Love of Wisdom (appears to be an allegory of wisdom as a woman, Sophie, and how to approach her).

    “A terrible silence reigned between us for nearly a minute. Then I spoke. “You damned fool, you’ve never understood women. She doesn’t want to tell you what she wants from you—no woman does. She wants you to know. She wants to know you’ve been listening to her, that you’ve seen her … stop trying to captivate her when she’s already yours. Be sublimely negligent of method.”
