Today I am going to share with you the first installment of “Things Men Say to Me With Complete Confidence That Prove They Actually Don’t Know Anything, Annotated”
(I wanted to save this one for a longer Toast-like list, but this one was just so good and so appropriate that I couldn’t wait)
Man: “A lot of people ask me why there are so many nude women, and I always tell them that he [Matisse] loved women, during that time [the early twentieth century] there weren’t a lot of gay people or anything, so they drew a lot of naked women”
- Yes man, that is exactly how both fine art and human sexuality work. There were no gay people before (I actually don’t even have a made up date I can put here as a serious/decent joke). Also the ONLY reason for drawing nude women is sexual attraction. This is exactly how the world works.
