Use this thread to post cringey and stupid things otherwise brilliant people have said.

I'll start:

Schopenhauer's view of women is the most retarded incel-tier shit ever.

Instead of calling them beautiful, there would be more warrant for describing women as the unaesthetic sex. Neither for music, nor for poetry, nor for fine art, have they really and truly any sense or susceptibility; it is a mockery if they make a pretense of it in order to assist their endeavor to please.

Taken as a whole, women are . . . thorough-going philistines, and quite incurable.
